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.
