Welcome to the Strathpeffer Junction shop. UK shipping for OO Gauge ringfield adaptor kit orders is £2.99, irrespective of how many are purchased. We also ship to Ireland, mainland Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand (postage to the USA has now doubled in price due to the US government's new tariffs).

+ Update 20 August 2020 +

I am delighted to announce that my wee second man was born safely at the end of July and we're all getting used to him being on the footplate. Scottish Government advice is currently to reduce the contact that new-borns have with the outside world due to Covid-19. For that reason, I will still have to post parcels once a week, but, wherever possible, I will ship non-signed for large letter items twice weekly. I am hoping that towards the end of September I may be able to return to a more regular dispatch pattern. Thank you for your continued support and patience, and also to everyone who has got in touch with their best wishes. It is very much appreciated. Best wishes, David

Pre-made PCB Diode Voltage Dropper (for 6V CD/DVD Motor Conversion)

£4.55

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 a DCC decoder without CV5/CV6 functionality, you’ll need to consider a diode voltage dropper to protect the motor from over-voltage and current.

This new and improved pre-assembled voltage dropper will drop around 3 volts, which is twice the value of our other kits and is particularly suited to higher speed 6V motors.

It features a specially-designed printed circuit board and is pre-assembled, saving you preparation time and hassle, and will reduce the voltage going to the motor by ~3v, adding substantial protection to any 6V motor and helping to achieve a far more prototypical speed.

We also stock a a range of ~1.5V voltage dropper kits, which may be better suited to slower motors: our pre-assembled surface-mount diode dropper kit (DD1), saving you time and effort soldering small components, low-profile surface mount (SMD) components kit (DD2) and our through-hole components kit (DD3).

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