Wiring a Peco 10E machine
Posted by FRRYKid on Tuesday, January 02, 2018 10:12 PM

Got yet another one for my forum friends. I have purchased a pair of 10E machines for use with my HO 3 way turnout. I have studied the instructions and looked at the units and am completely confused. These will be mounted under table using PL-9 mounting plates.

My experience is with wiring Atlas units, so bear with me. On the machines, there look to be four posts on either side. As I will be using Atlas control boxes, which of the posts coorespond to the center post of the Atlas machines/control boxes and which posts would connect to the outer two screws? I intend to connect the machines so that the outer rails will be controlled by one control box and a second box will control the middle route. I also intend to connect in a PL-35 as I have been told to trigger two machines at once that will be needed.

As usual thank you for any assistance that can be provided.

 They wire the exact same. Two posts on one side get tied together and are the common side, just like Atlas. The diagram is in the instruction sheet:

At the bottom.

In that case, does it make a difference as to which side is the common or is it a matter of "pick a side"?

Pick a side.
