                DCC SPECIALTIES RRampMeter IV - MEASURES DCC/DC/AC VOLTS & AMPS                                       "The Essential Tool" for Large G Scale Model Trains Hobbyists"


Accurately measures DCC, AC and DC Volts and Amps! DCC - 38.6 V, 18-20 A; DC - 38.6 V, 18-20 A; AC - 27.6 V, 18-20 A; PCB length 5.63"; Enclosure length

4", width 2", height 1.25"   The amazing RRampMeter designed for Model Railroaders by DCC Specialties does what no other meter can do! Easy walk-

around measurements of layout voltage drops, accurate booster output setup to optimum voltages for decoders and sound units. 



Measuring PWM Voltage - Manufacturer's Technical Response


The RRampmeter should accurately measure a PWM waveform.   After all, DCC is a form of PWM. However, the RRampmeter reads the TOTAL RMS value of the waveform, DC + AC. Your Fluke set to read AC blocks DC and is only measuring the AC component. Since the lights and smoke unit are going to respond to the DC value of the PWM (and I assume the PWM is on/off, so there is a DC component), you should measure these outputs with the Fluke meter set to DC.  One other thing to keep in mind is that the RRampmeter is designed to power itself from the input, so on a low power circuit such as a light output, the added load may affect the reading.   Make sure you are using the battery for power and not the input signal. Even with the battery, the RRampmeter will load the circuit more than the Fluke (25.4K vs 10 Meg). For this reason, the Fluke set to read DC might be the better choice.

ESu ECoS DCC Command Station.GIF

As a multi-protocol command station, ECoS supports DCC, Märklin® Motorola®, Selectrix® and the M4 data protocol. M4 drives and controls locomotives equipped with mfx® decoders without any restrictions. M4 is completely compatible. You can even continue to use almost all of your present loco decoders. ECoS is therefore the only digital command station worldwide that unifies 4 data protocols.  Features:  Two Output Terminals, one for the  Track Layout & another for the Programming Track; RailcomPlus automatically reads decoders with RailcomPlus and populates the command station - No need to assign a locomotive address (CV1).  

With an ECoS you can run locos: via two integrated cabs with large, easy-grasp motor driven throttle knobs and nine precise click-function keys you control your locos. In combination with the touch screen, you can control up to 20 functions per engine.

ECoS controls turnouts and magnetic accessories: a large, graphical control panel provides you access for up to 1420 turnouts (DCC or Motorola® protocol).

With ECoS you can plan and control routes: simply put turnouts and magnetic accessories graphically in groups and switch them together. Routes will be activated either by feedback contacts or by key. You can even use s88 occupancy detectors or ECoSDetector feedback modules.

With ECoS you can operate shuttle trains very easily: put a rail contact at both ends of the track and ECoS will do the rest.  The ECoS built-in booster has so much power that, in most cases, you don‘t need additional ones.

Comes with an ESU 7 Amp 21 Volts DC Power Supply

For wireless use, you must purchase the ESU Mobile Controller II shown below.
