Q) Is the
LNRP a RailSync Booster, too?
LNRP boosts (and separates) the Railsync "standard"
outputs from the master command station ("protected"
railsync), so if there is a problem with this separated "standard"
Railsync copy, the master Command Station is unaffected along
with other devices like track boosters that need good railsync
Railsync is also over-current protected and the LNRP will turn
off an overloaded "standard" Railsync and automatically
retry re-powering, so when the fault clears the "standard"
Railsync is restored. This is useful in systems that have plugs
that may short the railsyncs to e.g. ground during operation,
or if the wiring is simply overloaded.
same way, the LocoNet "data" part of the cable wiring
is protected on the Command Station side, so if the "standard"
side has a LocoNet data problem, the LNRP will amputate or disconnect
just this data part from the "protected" command station
side. Once the data fault clears, the LNRP will automatically
restore data connection,
fault states detected are indicated on the LEDS.
