I have an accessory that operates on 8-10 volts. My transformer has posts to supply 14 volts. How can I hook the accessory up to make it work correctly. Thanks
Welcome to the forum!

I strongly suggest you re-post your question in the Wiring, Electronics and DCC section of this board. You'll get more and better answers if you do!

When you re-post, please tell us more about your accessory and your transformer, such as . . .
  • What type of accessory is it?
  • Does your accessory require AC or DC?
  • Is the 14 volts from your transformer AC or DC?

Ranger: A resistor of the correct sized wired in line with the accessories should drop the power down to 10 volts.
