Re: Power Pax ?

I hooked the meter to the booster wires on the programming track and set it for voltage
Then did a write and got a reading of 6 volts just for a second as the meter resets its self while reading voltage
so i did a read and got 6 to 8 volts it varied as a read takes longer
 
doesn't sound like enough to me

Terry, connect a voltmeter across the program track rails; set it to around 15 volts AC.

When you issue a program track command (read or write) the voltmeter should show a voltage for a brief moment.

That only tells you that the device is turning on the track power and is talking to the command station, it doesn’t tell you if the DCC commands are correct.

Only other way is to place a loco on the program track and try to change/read it’s address or some CV’s.

  Is there a way to test a power pax booster to tell if it's working properly

Thanks
