+ Temporary Closure +

I will be in hospital for another procedure on my back/spine at the end of October. The shop will therefore be closed to new orders for a short period between Wednesday 28th October and 4th November 2020 inclusive. I may also be unable to reply to emails for a proportion of that period, so if you do not get an immediate response, please accept my apologies, however I will respond to you as soon as I am able. Many thanks for your support and understanding. Best wishes, David

Diode Voltage Dropper Components (Surface Mount) Kit (for 6V CD/DVD Motor Conversion)

£2.50

Only 5 left 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 KitOur diode voltage dropper components (surface mount/SMD) kit includes all of the core components – four surface mount diodes, a piece of pre-cut and scored circuit board and a length of Kapton tape – saving you preparation time and hassle.

All you have to do is solder the diodes onto the circuit board, followed by the wires to the motor/from the pickups or decoder. Use the Kapton tape (it’s got a protective film over its sticky side) to insulate all exposed copper.

Detailed instructions are available in our ringfield adaptor kit instructions booklet.
