Wiring PSX units literally in parallel has no discernable virtue.

Subject: [WiringForDCC] Multiple PSx Short Circuit Protection Respond to Track Short
My club has a large layout, primarily consisting of two large concentric loops in an 'C' shape. Each main is about 240 feet long. There are no crossovers between the two mainlines. The layout is divided into three power districts powered by one Digitrax DB-150 in each district. The layout districts can be described as dividing into a left loop district, a central district, and a right loop district. Facing the central district, as a cross-section, you see four mainlines. Each center section mainline piece is powered through a PSx short circuit control unit from the one booster. (Four PSx units.) Each mainline does have some sidings, but again there is no crossover between the loops.
