Lighting the tail lights of a DE10
Darklighter posted a topic in DCC, Electrical & AutomationHi, I installed a Digitrax DN163 in my Kato HO scale DE10. Everything works fine so far but now I want working tail lights, too. There are 3 free function outputs left on the decoder and I want to be able to switch on/off both front tail lights, both rear tail lights and - now comes the difficult part - the front right tail light together with the rear left tail light (for switching). I came up with the following wiring diagram, which shows only the wiring for the front taillights: Will this work? Or is there a better way to do it?
TCS FL4 decoder issue, please help
Melandir posted a topic in DCC, Electrical & AutomationHI guys I need your help I have just finished installing a TCS FL4 function decoder in my Tsubame 800 front car and lights work strangely http://www.katomodels.com/hobby/dcc/dcc_tips/light_kato.shtml my kato lightboard is 4352 I have reversed the red led as shown in the picture, in this way I have both anode on the same side, I have cutted the trace as signed (I hope I have cutted them well) and connected the wire properly, the only difference is that I used green and purple wire instead of white and yellow because this is a function decoder and does not have withe and yellow wires now my problem is that when I use F1 the white light turn on correctly, as soon as I turn on red lights with F2 the whote light goes off and until I turn red light off there is no possibility to have the white light on again If I remap F1 to FoF and F2 to FoR to manage the light as front and tail light only the red light are on and there is no way to have the white light on I have attached the PDF files of the decoder can you help me spot my error, my head refuse to find it, so I need someone else that review my work and point me to the solution thanks to all FL4.pdf Comprehensive Programming Guide.pdf
