If I'm replacing my KW, what is the best choice? Another KW? Something newer (that has been suggested to me?) If newer, what?
So after powering everything up this weekend, after about 5 minutes or so, my KW started smoking. Read an old thread about it on here (this one), so I unhooked everything from it and the next day plugged it in with nothing attached, same thing. This was given to me for free and since one of the handles is broken off (the other just lays there, not secured) along with the whistle handle, I'm not sure its worth attempting to repair.
What I was using it for?
Running one (channel?) to power 12 Realtrax Switches and the other to power 4 Operation Tracks (Uncouplers only.)
**Note: My control panel has 2 analog volt meters on them that I was measuring the KW voltage with, so I'd still like to utilize them.
