  • Plug Size for Powerbase



    My grandson's track has an ARC One system but he has asked to upgrade the controllers. I have ordered a couple of Sport Powerbases (like in the picture but without the controllers) so each lane has its own power. His controllers have alligator clip connections, what size 3-wire plugs do I need for the Powerbases?

    Thanks,
    David

    Regular mini stereo phono plug maybe? If you have a pair of headphones with a mini plug laying around, you could check the fit. Uh, but please remember to unplug power to the base first.

      Make sure you remove the central plug in the ARC ONE base (see a thread on here about a "brake mod")
      Or check https://slotcarp.wordpress.com/#Conclusion

        Thank you, gentlemen.

        Next question (since the powerbases aren't here yet), I am going to use a 25 amp Pyramid power source for this setup. I assume the 16vdc input ports on the powerbases accept standard wall wart plugs. Right?

        Thanks again,
        David

          I had some 12v wall warts laying around and tried one out. It fits and works, but I cant remember what they originally came from.

            Another question about Scaley Sport. For the controller plug, is the tip connected to the brakes? From the drawings I have seen, I wired red-tip-brakes. Black-middle-power. white(green)-base-throttle
