Re: Hidden Yard wiring, equipped with track occupancy detectors.
I agree about disabling any DC options in the command station if
they are not being used. Especially true of the decoder in
turning it off via CV29.
That said, in this case a 0.28V (280 millivolts) DC presence
within a DCC signal is not a major DCV value of concern.
Variation in a given boosters DCC drive (waveshape) and/or DCC
noise can fool a voltmeter at this level. Why? A 0.28V is not
even enough voltage to make a DC motor run on pure DC nor fool a
decoder into thinking there is DC on the track. A major DC
presence would be a DC value in multiple Volts.
