Loksound micro v5 next18 connector.
yes but what number is best?
58828 is the Next18 only part number (LokSound 5 Micro DCC). Doesn’t have any daughter board. 58818 is the multi protocol decoder
they show this board is for the 58820,58821,58823 and 58828
58828 is the one I use.
I have done some Kato F2s, E8/9s, and now a pair of PAs. The EZ-FIT diameters are .076 for the lower headlight, and .108 for the upper headlight.
has any one used a cap for keep alive?
Yep, I’ve put poly-Ta caps into P42, F40PH and F3s with these. Attached to the U+/GND pads just forward of the speaker pads.
thank you for replying what uf and volt and how many caps
Either 2 220μF 25V in parallel, or 2 330μF 20V in parallel

thank you very much. I will get some.
Any second run for this board planned?
Thanks and happy new year

There are plenty available on eBay (updated versions-minor changes), as well as at a number of on line suppliers. TrainBoard advertiser Streamlined Backshop has them in stock.
For long-term reliability, the capacitor voltage rating should be twice the bus voltage it is holding up.
That is a good rule of thumb for Tantalum capacitors. There is more “room” for Poly-Ta caps, but I would still want to stay at no greater than 75%.
That's a good rule of thumb for any capacitor.
The link at the top of this thread to ebay is broken. Can you repost?
Looks as if the original post is off of eBay. If you search for WVD Kato, you can find two sellers offering them. The lower priced one, which may still be related to WVD, does mention 3 retailers who are carrying it, including TB advertiser SBS4DCC
Thanks! Boards ordered and looking forward to my first sound locomotives: Set of Rio Grande F3's to pull the Cal Zephyr.
