Re: DCC Meters

Hi Mike:

DCC is an AC, but a square wave. An AC volt meter will be a bit off of the true DCC voltage. But it will still show high and low values, so should still be helpful for trouble shooting.

An AC volt meter is just a DC meter with a diode bridge.

Good afternoon,

I was wondering if there was a way to adapt or modify this type of meter to use with DCC?  I know there is the DCC Specialties  RRamp Meter out there, but wondering if there was a way to use something like this instead?  This photo was taken off a listing on Amazon.

Thank you...
