Whilst I have good stock levels for most motor kit components, some motor shipments from my suppliers are affected by events in China (and now globally). Out of stock kits will be restocked as soon as possible, but I may not be able to provide a specific timescale. Please subscribe to updates for out of stock products (on each product's listing page) and you'll get an email notification as soon as new stock is added.

My wife is also pregnant and in the government-defined more vulnerable group, so I have had to amend my shipping days to reduce the amount of contact that we have with public spaces. For orders that are placed via my website, and until the national picture is clearer, I will ship these at mid-day each Tuesday and, where possible, Friday. Please rest assured that orders will be shipped as soon as they can be, but it may take a day or two longer than normal.

Thank you for your understanding and support. Stay well.

Diode Voltage Dropper Components (Through-Hole) Kit (for 6V CD/DVD Motor Conversion)

(1 customer review)

£2.55

In stock

Description

If you’re using a 6V dc motor in your Lima or Hornby ringfield motor conversion, and you’re using DC control or DCC without CV5 functionality, you’ll need to consider a diode voltage dropper to protect the motor from over-voltage and current.

Diode Voltage Dropper Components - Wiring Through-Hole VersionOur diode voltage dropper through-hole components kit includes all of the core components – four surface mount diodes and heat shrink tubing – saving you preparation time and hassle.

All you have to do is twist the legs of two diodes (arranged in opposing polarity) together and solder the joints, cover in heat shrink to insulate and then solder it inline with the wires to the motor/from the pickups or decoder.

The kit comes with basic wiring instructions. Detailed instructions are available in our ringfield adaptor kit instructions booklet which is available via our website.

    I’ve bought a few of Strath’s conversion kits now and absolutely love them. They make ringfield conversion easy, but I did have to buy my own diodes separately. I inboxed with David and asked if he could sell diodes alongside the adaptors to help those of us less electronically-minded and low and behold here they are! I’ve bought one for my next Lima motor replacement and it’s great and it saves hassle identifying the right diodes. Would buy again 🙂
