Railwayscenics supply a wide range of open case chassis mounting transformers is a wide range of power options. All of our supplied transformers have single primary windings and dual secondary windings, that can be wired in series or parallel giving various output power options.

All of our transformers will require additional wiring and protection that is available separately. When mounted they should have adequate cooling ventilation. If you are planning to show your layout, exhibition managers would prefer a metal insulated case, rather than wood.

The secondary power outputs should be protected with a suitable fuse or circuit breaker.

If you are unsure of how to safely wire these items, please consult a qualified electrician, who will be able to do a safe job for you. They may also be able to PAT test the fittings to ensure safety. For your own safety do not Have a Go at doing it yourself, these can kill and cause serious damage if wired incorrectly.

6VA transformers

These transformers can be used to power very low consumption products such as LEDs and other lighting applications. They should be protected by a 3 amp fused plug.

12VA transformers

These transformers should be used to power low consumption products such as LEDs and other lighting applications. They should be protected by a 3 amp fused plug.

20VA transformers

These can be used for medium power requirements. They should be protected by a 3 amp fused plug.

50VA transformers

These are used on high consumption electrics. They should be protected by a 3 amp fused plug.

These units supply more power than the Gaugemaster units and can be used as replacements for their range of transformers.

Gaugemaster open transformers.

Gaugemaster supply and recommend a range of 32VA transformers for their range of products. We have included here a comparison list between the two ranges to allow you to see the equivalent products.
