QUOTE (darobi @ 22 Dec 2006, 18:26) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>A unit will only draw what current it needs so excess capacity isn't an issue in normal running conditions.

HOWEVER if a fault occured and the fail safe didn't blow (i.e. the fuse or cutout trip) then the unit could draw far more power then is required doing some damage or burning out the unit completley.


My digitrax manual recommended that any power supply for the Zephyr be limited by a fuse or circuit breaker to 3 amps.
Apologies for resurrecting an old post :^)
