Re: DC Circuit Breaker?

Our club has a similar bus.  I’ve “branched” the bus using 1 amp circuit breakers.  Each device is then connected through an appropriate  Raychem Polyswitch “resettable fuse.”  Here’s a link to the DigiKey catalog:


What accessories do you anticipate powering from this Accessory Bus?

Subject: [WiringForDCC] DC Circuit Breaker?



Our club is rebuilding their layout for DCC. As part of the electrical, we are including a 12VDC bus to power accessorie. The bus is powered by a regulated power supply, capable of outputting 4amps. We would like to install some circuit protection, preferably an auto resetting breaker. Do any of you have a recommendation on what we should use?
