Hi All,

Can i run 12V DC for track power and accessories /16V on the same D connector my thought are to have 12V track power on two of the pins for a shuttle the same on another two pins for a seperate track and the same for 12V accesories /16V using 8 pins in total on one connector is this safe and possible

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Richard,
Many thanks for the advice it want to use a D connector in my cue case layout so DCC wont be involved a D control or similar is fine to run the track as the maximum track length will be only 50'' so the ends of the track will be open.

I wanted to use the D connector as space is limited fitting it at one end with an experimentor box holding the control and any other accesories switches shuttle unit etc.

On all D connector pins i apply heatshrink
