Re: How to find the booster common?

Vollrath, Don <don.vollrath@...>

What boosters are you using? NCE Power Pro command station and booster have the booster common connection at the case.

Subject: [WiringForDCC] How to find the booster common?



For an upcoming event were looking for a solution to avoid boosters potentially pumping current into each other when a train crosses between booster districts.
So read all about the booster common (or booster ground).
Theory well understood but how to do this in reality.
None of the boosters I have available have a pin or connection point which is clearly marked as such.
Any practical guidance will be more than welcome.
As an electronics engineer I do understand schematics etc :-)

Any other solutions you see?
We've been thinking about some special electronics and we see some technical solutions if needed but alas they're pretty intrusive.
