Hey All
I see on Digitrax that the db200 is not a command station but a booster only OK. Useing it with the db150 at 5 amps and db200 at 8 amps will the db150 still trip when 5 amps is reached? Hope thats clear enough. Can someone explain it?
Thanks Jason

when using a DB200 as a booster, the track section that it drives will source up to 8 amps. However, the section that the DB150 drives will source only 5 amps, same as it is now.

If you use the DB150 as a command station only and drive the whole layout from a DB200, then you will get a little more headroom, but not a lot.
