Hi all
I have been reading with interest on another forum the topic of whether of not the power bus (which also carries the DCC data signals) should/can be wired under the layout as a ring or radial circuit. Searching the internet I can't find any reference to ring circuits being used anywhere, as they all refer to radial power buses.

Will any short circuit currents be better and fast returning via a ring or a radial bus
Will the data on the power bus be best served by a radial or ring circuit?

So, is a DCC ring bus advisable or is it to be the radial or perhaps it just doesn't matter?

Hi....It doesn't matter if you are too technical or not technical enough. You cannot please all of the people, all of the time. I am very new to DCC but ran my own electronics company for 28 years. I am trying to get as much info about DCC into my noddle as my ageing grey cells will allow. If a posting gets too technical, I can either ask for further explanations or just pass on to a different posting. I am never happier than when I am learning something new so keep up the technical postings PLEASE.
