ELECTRICAL REFERENCE MATERIALS & MANUALS

Any chance you could just embed the thumbnails and not expand all the photos?  It takes a lot longer to find what you're looking for if each post is pages long.  With a description, there's no need to actually have the expanded full-size graphic.

Here's a QSI manual for the below referenced system for anyone interested.  The PDF file is attached.

Just a caveat guys:  be careful about posting materials that have been the subject of copyrights.  I expect most Lionel pubs have been.  I express no opinion on whether any copyrights have expired or not.

 

Expecting that there will be a fusillade of complaints, I state that I am only raising a caution flag and will not partiicpate in any discussions.  If you don't like copyrights, take it up with your elected lawmakers.

Great idea and I can see I'll be busy scanning numerous old manuals.

 

SUGGESTION for all:  Please include the year of publication in the original post.  Many of LIONEL's operating manuals use similar covers and titles.  Perhaps others do as well; probably easier to include the year in the original post than leaving it in the thumbnail.

Here are the Protosound 1 and QS2-Plus command manuals I scrounged from somewhere years ago.

PTC and TVS - Some Commonly Used Sizes and Part Numbers (from other threads)

This started in another thread and some thought it would good for future reference. It's a list of some commonly used resettable fuses and TVS diodes. I will add to the list when/if more information becomes available.

PTC resettable Fuse - 750mA hold, 1.5A trip for ERR Cruise Commander Lite - Digi-Key: MF-R075-0-99-ND - Notes: These go in one of the motor leads to protect a the drivers from a stalled motor. Only used for the Cruise Commander Lite. (GRJ)

PTC resettable Fuse - 130mA hold, 250mA trip for passenger car LED lighting - Digi-Key: 490-4808-1-ND - Notes: As long as the trip is around 250mA, the hold takes care of itself for LED passenger car lighting applications. (GRJ)

PTC resettable Fuse - 0.5A hold, 1A trip for Fastrack Uncoupler tracks drawing about 1.8A - Digi-Key: MF-R050-ND (other brands of un-coupler tracks may have similar requirements?) (Info - PLCPROF; Part #'s - NVOCC5, PLCPROF, GRJ) Update 09/20/2016 - Gargraves un-coupler tracks use approx. 2.1 amps and the old Lionel UCS tracks use approx. 1.2 amps. No info on recommended PTCs for these items, none have been tested. (Info - RJR)

PTC resettable Fuse - 50mA hold, 100mA trip for MTH smoke fan motors - Digi-Key: MF-R005-0-ND - (MTH smoke fan motors should not draw more than 50mA) (Info from a question in this thread started by WillyGee. (GRJ, WillyGee)

TVS Conventional - Digi-Key Part Number 1.5KE36CALFCT-ND - 1.5KE36CA - 36 volt, bi-directional - Sized for a PWZW when the whistle button is depressed. This peaks over 33 volts if the compensation winding is considered. (Part number recommended by many, explanation by Dale H)  (Digi-Key part numbers from GRJ) 

TVS Command Control - Digi-Key Part Number 1.5KE33CALFCT-ND - 1.5KE33CA - 33 volt, bi-directional - Sized for the modern 18 volt bricks. The 18 volts peaks a bit over 25 volts. (HiRailers Unlimited & Independent HiRailers Group, explanation by Dale H) (Digi-Key part numbers derived from GRJ's above for 33 volt version)

For the TVS, I believe the 1.5KE36CA is the most recommended here on the forum and also the most widely used as it seems it would be suitable for either the modern bricks or the transformers with whistle buttons.  

Original thread here: Electric RR and PTC Resettable Fuses  -  (GRJ) - gunrunnerjohn

Here's some added info on chokes used with DCS to help eliminate interference with the DCS signal from other devices. The thread is here: TIU Active vs Passive Mode DCS Signal Voltage. The part (selected by GRJ) is Bourns Inc. SRP1770TA-220M from Digi-Key. It's 12 amp and can be used on the TIU channel's full power which is a maximum of 10 amps. (Adrain! and GRJ) 

Any and All corrections and/or additions welcome. They will be added as soon as I see them posted here or I get them via email.

I also posted this as an addition to the  ELECTRICAL REFERENCE MATERIALS & MANUALS  thread for Reference Only. Please, No additional Comments to that thread.

So we don't add clutter the 'Electrical Reference Materials & Manuals'thread with a bunch of unnecessary comments, please use this thread for further additions, corrections, discussion and any questions you might have. You can also email me with any corrections or additions. My email is in my profile. Thanks!
