Evening Gents,

I've been having a quick look round Chris Frost's website, specifically in the wiring section, for advice on how to wire up me track! But, I cant find the answer I'm looking for. It is a single lane rally track, and will have power from a variable 2amp power supply.

My controller of choice is the excellent PWM controller from TruSpeed, and for my rally track I would like to use this. I also would need the track wired for brakes. Finally, it would be great to have the option of a switch to change the direction of travel, without knackering up my controller.

Could anyone advise with a wiring diagram that would allow this?

Regards
Jon

P.S, Any idea where I may pick up a reasonably priced power suply? It needs to be 0-20volts, 2amp, variable output voltage. But at £60, thats seems a little steep for such a small track. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

This is the standard way to wire a track, the six dots near the bottom right represent a double pole, double throw (DPDT) reversing switch. I have drawn the circuit with a resistor controller included, in the US black goes to the wiper, white goes to the resistor and red goes to the brake contact.

Hi guys,

Thanks very much for the above diagram 300SLR, that seems pretty easy to follow.

Looking at my track, I dont think I will choose to run in the opposite direction, so if I just run the Neutral to the one lane (Positive lets say), and the Earth/Power Suply to the other (Negative), I pressume this will still work, and most importantly, give me brakes, and not mess my controller up?

Regards
Jon
