I am in the process of upgrading a Weaver Milwaukee Road F6a 4-6-4 Baltic to PS-2. The Baltic has a Train America Studio smoke unit in it that has ("an auto shutoff circuit that prevents the element from burning up when out of fluid") The element is 10 ohms.
Since PS-2 smoke units have 2 16 ohm elements in parallel ( 8 ohms ) would it be save to wire the PS-2 board across the TAS element for smoke control from the PS-2 board or should I find an 8 ohm Element?
Another thought was to wire the TAS board to track power and wire the smoke motor to the PS-2 board for puffing smoke but would only do this as a last resort. I would much better prefer to have full control from PS-2 board. Thank you for your response.
