Installing the new PBM-2 keep alive power
« on: January 21, 2021, 06:27:43 PM »
 Getting ready to install LM-3S s in 2 more units.  The 42 units I currently have with Railpro decoders has my own version of keep-alive power. I had to include a bridge rectifier for correct polarity. Does the PBM-2  Eliminate the need for that? Another words, just run the two wires from the keep alive right in line without the bridge?
Thanks,
Rob

No bridge rectifier needed with the PBM-2.
