    Sounds really good Richard, Suppose use of modular connectors could be used to allow operation of any individual board if it will be difficult to get a chance to connect them all. 3x boards of 3m? Phil

  7. Sorry for the interruption in service this afternoon, back to normal now.

  8. Sorry, been in Canada for a few weeks and only catching up. Is thata DC or AC Supply? Perf boardlooks OK to me, assuming its a +12V supply (not sure about why its 18V?) TIP120's are either for motor control or higher voltage (eg 12V)

    What are you using for short circuit detection? Monster amount of current there!

    Looks like you had a good day!
  11. Hi, Are the signals & servos DCC? You may be able to run some of these directly from the Arduin if they have a wire for each colour. A transistor could be used for supplying 12V. Philip
  12. Hi, Is the problem around the pins you use for the optoisolator? You get 4 pin versions which are easier to understand. Did you get the same chip as on the drawing? Phil

    Hi Carl and welcome, What controller are you using. I have written a few topics on here and would like to hear a bit more about yours. Thanks, Phil
  14. Hi Jens, You should use the "A" side only for connecting to the rails if you are using the same pins as i did. Phil
