Diode Voltage Dropper Kit (Preassembled) for 6V CD/DVD Motor Conversion


Out of stock


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.

Preassembled diode voltage dropper kit Our pre-assembled diode voltage dropper kit includes all of the core components – four surface mount diodes and a piece of pre-cut and scored circuit board – soldered together for immediate use.

All you have to do is solder the wires to the motor/from the pickups or decoder (be careful not to dislodge the diodes). Use the included Kapton tape (it’s got a protective film over its sticky side) to insulate all exposed copper.

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