Re: Tortoise Power Supply


Are you setting the throttle at any particular voltage?  More voltage, the faster it throws.  I have seen some videos, where the points move at a realistic slow speed.

I tried mine at 9 volts, with a 5000 mAh power supply, but it is a little slow. Nut j know that the Amps are there to handle the load.  The 12 volt power supply has less Amps, but much quicker throwing.

Just wanting to find out what others are using.

I used my old DC controller and as I added more I just turned it up a little.

Just wondering what power supply people are using to operate their Tortoise machines.

What is the voltage output?
How many amps?
How many machines does your power supply operate? Are you using g more than one power supply.

I am going to have about 40 machines when I am through, unless I convert the ground through turnouts on the lower of three levels. If I did, that would increase the machines bay another 25.

Thanks for the help,
