Wiring the Command Bus or Network & Feedback Bus

Posted by on Dec 19, 2014 in Miscellaneous, Tony's Tips |

Follow your system manufacturer’s instructions for wiring your DCC Command Bus or Network and Feedback Bus.

Digitrax LocoNet requires a 6 conductor phone wire network phone jack type outlets. These outlets can be daisy chained around the layout. This system is topologically similar to an Ethernet type computer network. LocoNet does not require a separate feedback bus.

Lenz’s X-bus and X-press Net require a 5-conductor command bus with DIN jacks. This system requires a separate feedback bus.

The Wangrow / NCE Corporation cab bus is similar to the Lenz X-bus.
