EU Orders
While UK VAT is not charged on any of the products listed in this shop, due to recent VAT changes across the UK & the EU, orders placed from the EU will now be liable for import VAT. How the charge is applied will vary from country to country, but in most cases you are likely to be asked to pay the VAT before the item is delivered to you. I can only apologise for any additional costs to my customers as a result of these changes, but nonetheless thank you for sticking with me.

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

£2.50

Only 2 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.
