Re: Powering LEDs with track power

Use a bridge rectifier and a resistor (680-1000ohm) in series with the LED.

That way track polarity will not matter.

You can use this to light equipment as well.

I suggest:

All Electronics.
OR http://www.allelectronics.com/category/110/bridge-rectifiers/1.html

You can wire to the DIP pins without a socket.

Subject: [WiringForDCC] Powering LEDs with track power

I'm thinking of powering LEDs using track power. Is this possible directly
or do I need any special circuitry. If so what would that be?
Thanks in advance
