Dynamis + reversing loop module

2001 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  neil_s_wood
Hello everybody,

I bought a Dynamis command, and a reversing loop Module Lenz LK100 that I put between the turntable (Fleischmann) and the booster of the Dynamis.

I do not manage to regulate the sensitivity of Lenz LK100: when I turn the bridge to 180°, the power station detects the short-circuit first, before Lenz LK100, even if this one is regulated on 1 A.

Does anyone know how I can resolve this problem ?

Thank you for your answers, and I apologize for the poor quality of my english.

Hello STL,
I don't know what, if anything can be done to fix it, but I've heard that the Dynamis is too sensitive to shorts to be used for this sort of thing. I could be proved wrong on this if you get any other replies. Tonys Train Exchange in the US sells a PSRev, which is a solid state reversing module that may be the answer to your problem. I'm surprised that you haven't got any other replies.

If true thats a pretty big problem! If its that sensitive many things could trip the booster unnecessarily.

Hi Steph & welcome to the forum,

Something in the back of my mind about reversing loops - the insulated section must be longer than the longest train length - is this the case with your set up ?

Also, I'm pretty sure that there is an issue with some reversing loop units/controller compatability.
I have a similar issue with the ECoS, Fleischmann turntable and my reverse loop module. I can't remember the name of it but it is an American one. It does not happen very often at all, very infrequently in fact, but it has happened once or twice.

It could be something to do with the speed at which the reverse loop modeul switches the current and the length of time needed to for the short circuit to trip the command station? Just speculating.
