Our new low cost drop ceiling boards require an SL LED Controller and parallel LED wiring power and dim from 1 to 300 LEDs. This makes it possible to both power and dim the lighting in multiple cars, so adding and removing cars from your passenger train is as simple as pluging and unpluging your cars power connectors, no adjustments are required. The are also short cirucit protected in case of wiring mistakes.

What is a Gold Cap capacitor?

Gold Cap capacitors a new type of device that are actually are a cross between a capacitor and storage battery. Like a battery they have extremely large power storage capacity but unlike rechargeable batteries have no 'memory' and feature nearly unlimited charge/discharge cycles. In addition they have very large storage capacity for their size and can discharge up to 2 amps of continuous current.

SL-6102104 Mini Gold Cap Buffer 2.5 Farad 10.7 Volt - UPS for analog train LED lights

Easy Install: Connect power in cable to track power and output wires to LED lighting board(s)


Buffer to Track Power Wiring Instructions: Hook up the center two wires to a source of track power - polarity is not important - 400ma max current draw for buffer + LED current (loco power plug, wheel power pickups or ball bearing wheels with power pickup)

SL-6102104 Mini Gold Cap Buffer 2.5 Farad 10.7 Volt - UPS for analog train LED lights
Buffer to LED board Wiring Instructions: Hook up the output wires to your LED boards DC inputs being careful to observe polarity. Buffer outside cables are output power; negative power wire is ribbed, Positive power wire is smooth. (Shourt Line SL 8108214 8 LED drop ceiling lighting fixture for passenger car shown above)


Wiring instructions for additional LED boards: Hook up additional LED boards DC inputs to the Negative and Positive input of each lighting board's AC bridge. Note that the positive side of the bridge is connected to the IC
