HOOKING UP AMERICAN FLYER TURNOUTS TO SC-2
by Ed Goldin (With help from Eric Bense and Carl Tuveson)
Page 11 of the installation manual shows how to hook up the
SC-2, but to power the SC-2 you must hook up the externally powered switch to
the #1 or top left position. No other power connection is necessary.
1. Hook up the black post from the switch to the 15v Post of the transformer or to any fixed voltage post.
2. Hook up the yellow post of the switch to the center post
of the SC-2 and a second wire from the center post to the base of the
4. Hook the green post of the switch to the L/H or thru position of the SC-2.
NOTE: You will have 2 wires on the SC-2 center connection one to the switch and one to the base of the transformer. Or you can have 2 wires on the yellow post of the switch, one going to the transformer and one going to the SC-2; it all depends on the configuration you want.
You can also use a buss to power the switches and take the wire for the yellow post off a terminal board or a Molex connector and split it that way.
In either of the configurations, it will operate the light on the switch.
Remember this is wireless so the SC-2 should be located somewhere in the vicinity of the Command Base or a track that is hooked up to the Command Base.
