When's the next digital 24 hr race?

I looked on the calander but couldn't find any entries at all, let alone slot ones.

Thanks.

What kind of power do you need to run 15 cars on Davic? Multiple supplies or one huge one?

Power supply: As far as Iknow the Spa track has only 2 power supplies for the whole track.

Teams vacancies Eupen: I think there are already two to three teams on the waiting list.

Alcorcon seems the most suitable, thanks Beppe.

Do I need to be a member to access it on foroslot? I tired the calander but it asked me to register.

Hi Narcis,

you mean that for the second year running Alcorcon and St.Celoni are on the same week-end ?
I thought we Italians had the monopoly for internecine rivalries !!!

Ciao

QUOTE Nico,
AFAIK Davic uses 2 x 5 A power supplies (one providing +18 V and the other - 18 V)

Nico, XLot

Davic runs the cars in DC, right? Why would one PS be running -18...unless the chips are built to look for that side of the sine wave and run the motors with it
?

I would have been satisfied with "2 18V PS's". was the "-" sign a typo? I sure hope so...

Thanks

No, it's not a typo - I got it from the horse's mouth (David Laurent) - but it's nothing to be alarmed about

In DCC, power / message is a +/- 18 V (or so) square wave : it just depends on the internal circuitry of the base unit whether you obtain it from two opposite polarity PSs or a single, double ampacity PS

So, this really means that 15 cars, with NC1 / NC2 motors, are happy with 10 A - what's important is that PSs should be stabilized (not wall warts)
