Our Wiring Standard
Since our NTRAK days, we embraced DCC and utilized it extensively. When we moved to T-TRAK, we wanted to continue to use DCC. It may be over kill as compared to the actual T-Trak wiring, but we wanted to make sure things worked and were bullet proof.
When we ordered the T-Trak kits from T-Kits.com, we weren’t aware that they could be ordered with wiring. We found out about the wiring and how they used the Anderson Power Pole connectors and housing to make the track connections. We used the power pole connectors on our N-TRAK modules, so we were familiar with them. Research was done to find the housing. We found them on line at Mouser.com. From the photos, you can see the connectors and the housing. What isn’t shown is the pin that holds the connectors in the housing. That is a separate item and should be ordered with the other items. With these, track power bus was created for each module. Bus wire was created that goes from module to module that makes for each setup and tear down at each show.
The Digitrax Loconet was created by obtaining female to female 6pr connectors, two per module that we established a loconet throttle connector on. These were glued into the opening of the module next to track bus connectors. Loconet cabling was created for between the modules, again for easy setup and tear down.
Here is a list of materials for the Track Bus and Loconet:
