Description

TCS 2010 KA-N1 N-Scale DCC Decoder Keep-Alive Device - Hardwire
 
 
TCS Keep-Alive® (KA) devices are used to supply power to decoders during times of power interruption due to dirty track or problematic track work. The KA-N1 can power an N-scale locomotive for 1-2 seconds over dirty track and power interruptions (depending on the number of lights and efficiency of the motor).
 
This Keep Alive® has been specifically designed to be as physically small as possible. This product uses a slightly lower voltage and has a lower capacity compared to our larger Keep Alive products such as the KA1, KA4, etc., and is intended to be used with N-scale decoders, such as the K7D4 and more!
 
Decoder Specifications:
  • Dimensions: 0.26” x 0.363” x 0.136” or 6.6mm x 9.2mm x 3.5mm
  • Scale: N-Scale
  • Input Rating: Less than or equal to 16V DC; 100mA (Max, Self)
  • Output Rating: 10V DC (Max); 1000uF

 

Keep Alive® Decoder Compatibility With TCS Decoders

TCS Keep Alive® (KA) devices are designed to operate with all TCS (or any other Keep Alive® ready) decoders. Decoders with a corresponding socket can be used with the KA4-P. This will be detailed in the decoder literature if the decoder has the socket.

!!!WARNING!!! This product purposely does not include a protective wrapping, in order to minimize the size as much as possible. As a result, the components on the top side are exposed. Ensure there is absolutely no chance of contact with metal surfaces!.

Keep Alive® Decoder Compatibility With Non-TCS Decoders

If you would like to attach a Keep Alive® unit to a non-TCS decoder, you need to connect the wires across the output of the bridge rectifier on the decoder. You will need to consult your decoder manufacturer for a schematic or wiring diagram.

Installation Notes for TCS Decoders

  1. Refer to the product page for your TCS decoder for compatibility information, such as wiring diagrams, for Keep Alive®.
  2. Connect the Blue wire from the Keep Alive® to the Blue wire (or otherwise indicated “common” positive Voltage source) of your decoder.
  3. Connect the Black & White striped wire to the Black & White striped wire wire (or otherwise indicated “ground”) of your decoder.
  4. That’s it! Your locomotive is ready to run over the most treacherous of tracks.
