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.

I'm not sure if the current ratting of a D connector would be sufficient for Track power , but I have seen them used to join modules together so maybe they are

I used 8 pin valve sockets on one of my early layouts they can handle a few amps!
