Hi!
I know that for using N-Digital and analog on the same track I have to change the track part with Digital Console with normal Analog connection track. But is it possible to leave lane changers in the track and use them as normal analog straight track? Do they have connection between both lanes or not?
Thanks
FP

Hi FP,

you can leave the lane changers in, but you will have to remove the connections between both lanes.

Just turn the LC around, open the screws and remove the back side and you will see.

One thing to beware of with Ninco - some of the analogue transformers are unregulated and have peak voltages which are too high for the lane change circuitry, and some people have burnt out their lane changers that way. Make sure you use a regulated power supply.

OK, thank you Michael. I searched threads, but didn't go so far back in time
. Now I know, that I can't use Ninco analog Power supply, and I kwno, that I can use also N-Digital supply for analog. Great help, thanks again, FP

Here is a scheme I have made for out four lane track in our club.

Each lane has a 4# cable running below the track every 2m a cable connects the lane with the 4# cable. Each 4# cable is connected to a 3 pin female XLR outlet.

A main cable of 8# distributes the power (from the adjustable power supply) over the 4 XLR outlets.

In analogue mode you just have to plug in your controller (with male XLR connector)

In digital mode the power/digital signal comes from the Simple-H. Here a 4# cable distributes the digital power/signal over the four lanes. The controllers are connected to the Nbase the Nbase drives the Simple-H.

All bridges below the lane changers have to be removed.

This is actual a plan, it is not started yet. All your comments are welcome?

Hi Nijn!
It looks good, I realy like the idea to use one distribution line for analog and digital.
Thanks for sharing,
MM

it is very simple but not! all the digital bits have to be on one loom. then the track can be dual purpose. Quite a bit of work!
