My medium sized layout runs 3 trains & a trolley using a ZW & a 1032. Trains on terminals A and D on ZW and the A-U combination on the 1032.
(I know they must be in phase)
I’m using a common bus for the entire layout. Am I correct that terminal A on the 1042 and U on the ZW can both be attached to the common buss under the table? Do I also need to run a line directly between the two transformers?
I plan to use the B-C combination for constant power to a AC/DC Converter. The DC is used for a timer which controls the length of time the trolley remains at each of the three stops. Will they work independently or does one of them (B?) need to somehow be connected to the common ground. The trolley itself runs at a constant steady speed and will be powered by terminal B on the ZW.
My questions are,
1..Am I attaching the two transformers to the common buss properly
2. Do I also need to run a “ground” wire directly between the two transformers- U on ZW to A on 1032
3. When using the B-C combination for fixed auxiliary power, does either B or C need to be connected to the Common buss.
