55928MLC Troller Slow speed controller
- Mar 9, 2008Hi Ed,
The "MLC Troller Slow Speed Controller" actually runs on 9 - 16v AC / DC so
you can provide any mains step down plug in transformer unit you like.
However the current IC in the N / OO scale give 12v DC output at about
/2 - 1 amp and the O scale 12v DC at about 1 - 5 amps. Will have to dig out
the box of bits to give you exact output amps for those.
It works with coreless motors too as it doesn't use feedback, one of the
local model clubs runs both O scale coreless and old iron motors in brass
bodied locos and they run beautifully at huge exhibitions like Warley in the
For Z scale I only need to change one of the IC's to a lower 8 volt output
one, I think I've got enough of the other components left to build one or
two if you want one but it wouldn't take me long to gather the bits together
if I've not got them all in stock still.
The idea originated from spending a fortune on an N scale Gaugmaster
controller which ran like a bag of spanners which had more Jerk than Jerk
Chicken! So I thought I'm sure I can make something better than this myself
and this was how the "MLC Troller Slow Speed Controller" came about.
I would be interested in obtaining one of you speed controls if you ever
decide to go into limited
production. I have both the Joerger and The snail speed controller. Am
always interested in a
better mouse trap. I am in the US so would need either 110 Volt 60 hertz AC
input or a DC input
from a wall wall wart.
