Re: Keeping It All Nice Neat And Tidy!!


Under this topic someone whose email I just lost said that long wires bundled together should be twisted to avoid problems. But if your using bdl168 to detect trains located in blocks and those wires if twisted will cause pickup problems then what do I do to get my 9 foot long wires to the bdl boards.

Can someone clear up this issue

Doc, 'snubbers' prevent 'standing waves' or 'reflections' traveling back
from an un-terminated bus that has an AC signal on it.

Basically, it 'absorbs' the signal.

Crosstalk is capacitive coupling caused by long, close, parallel wires;
reduced by twisting the wires.
