JL&T Railroad - Installing the Auto Reverser...

Well this week our DCC Specialities PSX-AR Auto reverser arrived, and it has already been installed on the JL&T under the centre peninsula.

The PSX-AR comes with very good instructions for installation & additional add ons...




The wiring for this is very basic if you are using it for a straight forward automatic reversing module, it has many other function that can be added and configured.  But for the moment I'm going to be using it as a straight forward AR.

The installation is 2 wires in and two wires out, thats it!  Nothing complicated and nothing else to do, I have placed ours near the JL&T helix area & Workshop bench.  This will make getting to it for additions later on or checking the LED status lights easier.

Eventually I will house the module in a plastic electrical box to stop dust build up and unwanted bumps from when working around the AR.

I have used spacers behind the PCB to lift it away from the timber fascia support.

The AR feeds into a wiring block that then splits into two, this will then feed into another two separate blocks of around six.  The idea is that the entire centre peninsula is powered through the AR, then the power is going to be split into five (5) power districts that will each be protected by an 1156 Short Management Device.

***WIRING WARNING FOR KEVIN, MORE NEAT STUFF BELOW***...




Once I have the power districts installed & the mainline wired in and protected I post another update and video of the first locomotive run across the centre peninsula and the AR operation.
