Micro DCC power bus wiring starter kit for small DCC model railway layouts which can be fitted above or below baseboard level that requires the user to solder the droppers to the power bus.

The components supplied have been specially selected for those modellers whose layout is less than 5m in length, and only requires a maximum current rating of 4 amps or below.

We have included in the micro kit lengths of 24/0.2 power bus stranded wire making the kit suitable for all scales of model railway layouts except 7mm scale layouts that may require a higher power current.

You will be required to solder the dropper wires to the track, the droppers to the bus wires and the two components of the termination filter kits together.

Also supplied in the kit are pre cut lengths of red and black heat shrink that can be used to insulate and protect the soldered joint. It shrinks to a ratio of 2:1 when heat is applied with shrinking starting at +70degC and totally shrunk at 115degC.

Small plastic P type clips are supplied that can be used to secure the wiring to the baseboards. These are slid onto the wiring and are held in place using small wood or self tapping screws which are not supplied.

These easy to fit and easy use DCC wiring starter kits come with basic instructions on how to use the filter kit components.

There is also a sheet that contains the model numbers of any additional items required to make re-ordering additional parts easier.
