  • Ring Engineering WH-9 | RailPro Wiring Harness

    Ring Engineering Ring Engineering WH-9 | RailPro Wiring Harness

    3 in stock

    Quantity: Two per packageThe WH-9 wiring harness can be used with all RailPro Locomotive modules. The WH-9 conforms to NMRA 9 pin plug standard so it can be used for any DCC locomotive where applicable. The WH-9 wiring harness can be used to add the required DCC 9 pin plug (JST) to a non-DCC locomotive. Or you can use it after removing all circuit boards from a DCC equipped or DCC ready locos (too allow a cleaner installation or make more room for a RailPro module). Please see LM instructions for actual wiring. JST connectors can come in two different ways that the pins are connected to the wires (crimp style and insulation displacement) both connect in the same manner and are interchangeable. However, we have found the crimp style pins to be far more dependable than the insulation displacement connectors that some DCC suppliers sell. WH-9 has a JST 9 pin with crimp style pins.

  • Ring Engineering AR-1 RailPro Auto Reverse Module

    Ring Engineering Ring Engineering AR-1 RailPro Auto Reverse Module

    1 review

    2 in stock

    This product is specifically designed to be used with DC and/or RailPro products. It cannot be used with DCC products. The AR-1 is used to power special configurations of track such as below. Track configuration like below would cause a short circuit if connected without the use of an AR-1. Note that if you follow Rail ’A’ around you will notice that it connects to Rail ‘B’! That is just like putting a piece of metal across Rail ’A’ and Rail ‘B’ which would cause a short circuit and would cause a power supply to shut down. The solution to power special track configurations like below is to add insulation gaps and power the sections with an AR-1. The AR-1 can also be used to isolate small sections of track, limiting the impact of short circuits if derailments occur to just one area of your layout. Features: All Solid State Design Simple Connection with Only 4 Wires No Adjustments Necessary Provides Short Circuit Isolation for a Section of Track Status Indicator Light Fast and Secure Spring Clamp Connecters Fully Enclosed Circuit Board Electronics Size: 4.60 x 3.00 x 1.18 inches Our all solid state design has many advantages over relay based designs. With the relay based designs we tested you could see the locomotive jerk when it crossed the gap at slow speeds. With our AR-1 we saw no visible change in speed at all! Further, compared to relay based designs, solid state units are far less likely to fail, switch many times faster and all without that annoying relay clicking sound.

  • Ring Engineering PBM-2 RailPro Power Backup Module Ring Engineering PBM-2 RailPro Power Backup Module

    Ring Engineering Ring Engineering PBM-2 RailPro Power Backup Module

    1 in stock

    A PBM can be added to a HO model train locomotive so that if the model train wheels loose connection from the track because of dirty track or other problems, the Power Backup Module will supply power to the Locomotive Module for up to many seconds to keep operating properly without sounds, lights, or even motor stopping! What is special about the RaiPro PBM is that the PBM is an active power backup not a passive one like many other power backups. Many others are basically just super capacitors that the voltage drops exponentially as soon as the power is removed. With other backups, lights continually dim and module performance is effected. Our PBM has onboard microcontroller and other electronics that will output a fixed voltage similar to a good power supply output so lights stay constant while PBM is active and locomotives perform better. Product Specifications: Connection 2-wire Dimensions: 1.27 x 0.66 x 0.32 in DCC Track Voltage: 12.6V – 16V     Approximate Run time lights only: ~18 SecondsApproximate Run time lights and sounds: ~14 SecondsApproximate Run time lights, sounds, and pulling a train:Varies greatly depending on locomotive, speed, load etc. PBM Frequently Asked Questions What is the most important aspect of a power backup module? In our opinion, the most important aspect of a PBM is its ability to power a locomotive pulling a train across dead track. Our PBM works so well that one of our locomotives pulled twelve cars across thirty inches of dead track without stopping while the lights and sounds were on! We tested some other super capacitor only power backup products that only covered a small fraction of the distance and were as large as our PBM! If the most important aspect is powering the locomotive pulling a train, why is there so many others that show or talk about the time the lights stay on? Powering a train can take many times the power then to just have light and/or sounds on because the motor can use much more power than powering the lights and/or sounds. We have seen super capacitor only designs that have real long light on time but when you try to pull a train the results were very poor. One product we tested had many seconds of light and/or sound on time but when pulling a train it died in less than 0.2 seconds! This is why we think many talk about or show light on time because it makes their products look better than they may perform when actually pulling a train. Do I have to use a PBM in all my locomotives for them to run well? NO. If your layout is powered by a RailPro power supply, you have quality locomotives, your layout is properly wired, and you do a reasonable job of keeping your track and locomotive wheels clean, you can have a good running layout without PBMs. So who does Ring Engineering sell PBMs for if some RailPro customers do not really need them? There are many RailPro customers that run on other peoples layouts (like at train clubs) and they cannot control how clean or maintained the track is. There are some RailPro customers that do clean their track regularly but just want extra insurance to be sure they get the best operation possible. Is it ok to use other companies power backup like devices with RailPro locomotive modules? No. Ring Engineering products should only be used as described in their user manuals. The LM user manuals do not say it is ok to connect super capacitors. Using our products in a way not in compliance with our user manuals will void the warranty of the Ring Engineering product and may cause serious problems. There is no public specification on how to design power backup units so there is no guarantee of compatibility. We believe that some regular super capacitor designs have been used with RailPro LM modules and damaged the RailPro modules. If you want power backup you should only use a Ring Engineering PBM with your RailPro locomotive modules. If a power backup has more Farads of super capacitors is it better? Not necessarily. The amount of capacitance (Farads) is only one factor and may not be a real good one when trying to compare one power backup to another. There are other important features to consider besides capacitance. For example a one Farad device can be a lot better than a two farad device. The two farad device may allow lights to run longer but not be able to power a moving train well. There is simply a lot more to it then simply comparing how much capacitance a backup device has built into it. Made In USA
