FAQ Category: YD8044
What is the minimum power supply requirement
The YD8044 has very modest requirements on it’s power supply.
Due to it’s built-in CDU, the power supply never has to supply the switching coil-current. (which may be as high as 10 Amps)
The CDU charge current tops at a maximum of 350 mA at 19 V input voltage. So a 15 V / 0.5 Amp wall-wart adapter is fully sufficient to supply the YD8044.
Can one DCC address switch multiple turnouts simultaneous
Yes it can. That is, the YD8044 will sequentially switch the assigned turnouts in left to right order as seen in the image below.
Depending on how quickly the CDU will be recharged, the switching will appear more or less simultaneous.
Here Address #1 switches turnout on Out 1 and after that turnout on Out 2.
How much current can an output deliver
By means of it’s powerful CDU the YD8044 can deliver up to 10 Amps to a connected coil.
