I'd like to tie in a 2nd powered A unit to a PS3 A unit running in DCC mode from a battery. Rather than running both A's as PS3's that are lashed together, I want the 2nd A motors to be tied to the first A unit.
How much current can run through the PS3 board in DCC mode? In my test below, 4 motors are running off a 14.8 Lipo Battery and settle in between 1.5 and 2 amps. But the startup amps can get as high as 7 or even 8. Is that too much of an initial jolt for the PS3 board?
