Re: Keeping It All Nice Neat And Tidy!!
Vollrath, Don <dvollrath@...>
The snubber/filters on the DCC track power bus serve a different purpose. The primary purpose is to absorb and reduce voltage transients on the buss of surges caused by intermittent connections to train wheels and/or short circuits. The inductance of DCC bus wiring (untwisted and length) amplifies those effects.
The reason to separate DCC power wiring from wires like the cab bus and other signaling feedback wiring is to reduce the possibility of normal and abnormal DCC switching causing interference with those circuits.

Paul , iI thought that "snubber filters " prevented that?
