Note About DCC Booster Output Ratings: Digitrax boosters have
maximum output current limits of either 5 or 8 amps. The actual
continuous output current that your booster will provide to
the layout depends on several factors including the input supply
voltage, the ambient room temperature and air flow over the
booster's heat sink. Higher input voltages increase the amount
of heat that must be dissipated by the booster's heat sink.
If the heat sink does not get enough air flow to allow for heat
dissipation, the booster will eventually reach an over temperature
state and shut down. A small fan blowing across the heat sink
on your booster will increase the maximum sustained current
output capacity of your booster.
company specifies the output capacity of its boosters according
to their own internal standards. Tests designed and performed
by several model railroaders have shown wide variations in the
actual output capacity of DCC boosters. In most cases the tests
were designed to overload boosters and cause them to shut down.
The conclusion based on these tests is that each manufacturer
uses a different way of determining booster output capacity,
Digitrax tends to be more conservative in stating booster output
ratings. The factor that is most important for achieving maximum
output capacity is the boosters heat sinking ability.
In these tests, Digitrax boosters have demonstrated excellent
heat sinking capabilities and the ability to consistently output
the advertised 5 or 8 amps when appropriate fans are added in
high temperature situations.
