Adding Choke to controller

5163 Views 23 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  RichD
Hi all I have several controllers with variuos controlls ie brakes, sensitivity, traction control etc but would like to add a choke switch preferably on the wire cables so that I can quickly change the max voltage for a technical section of track. Ideally also with a dial to dial in the desired voltage for the switch to use (ie 9 or 10 volts).

Are there any parts that I should consider that I could get from the local electorinics shop.

hi ray
each diode you add on phils rotary switch would give you a voltage drop of 0.6 of a volt
if you are in England/ uk try maplins for your bits
you need a
1 pole 12 way rotary switch order code FF73Q
diodes try 1N4002 1 amp 50v (don't worry about the voltage that's what it could handle) sorry have no code for these but maplins should be able to supply them or similar

hope this helps
