The standard "MOMI" banana sockets (when I get some) at the rear to power the front public and rear return rail and connect to the MOMI system.
And an electrically isolated loading dock siding and turntable, which by means of a DPDT can be powered either by MOMI or connected to a 3 pin Cannon connector in the baseboard.
Unlike you I haven't provided for an onboard transformer/controller and simply plan to plug in an external LGB controller via a lead to the Cannon connector.
This prompts a further question regarding Daniel's plan to create a "bypass" behind my layout. "Will the banana plugs get in the way?" My French linguistic skills aren't up to posing this to him, and wondered if you would take it up, particularly as it relates specifically to your module?
Do you want these banana sockets then? You can paint the red ones black!
You will need 8 sockets in total then like me.
My wiring has become a tad complicated because:
There are several isolating sections to enable some shunting with 2 tiny locomotives. Plus the electric turntable with cross tracks was quite tricky to wire up bearing in mind the polarity and short circuit issues and is controlled with a 4PDT switch at the moment but I may have to introduce a relay into the circuit.
I'm thinking of renaming mine Spaghetti Junction.
The bypass track if it is constructed as a shelf without a solid continuous side butting on the modules then it will be ok.
I'm sure Daniel realises this as he doesn't miss much. If not I'll try and explain.
So there is no continuous connection for the rear track then. Each module will be isolated from one another at the back.
.... err NO!
I think Daniel's wiring diagram explains it. In the simplest of modules which have only a front and rear track, the outer rails of each are connected and the inner rail of each connected. These are then connected to the banana sockets at each end of the rear thus providing a continuos loop around all the modules. It's only when we start adding isolated sidings and in your case a potentially, independently "working" rear rail that it becomes complex.
It was so much easier for me to grasp having seen the whole thing working at a previous expo!
un interrupteur général directionnel oriente vers le réseau l'alimentation sélectionnée . cela évite les accidents . analogique , numérique , tout est accepté . les engins à vapeur très propre aussi !!
a general directional switch directs to the network selected food. This prevents accidents. analog, digital, all is accepted. also very clean steam engines!
Brian, le plan est rectifié .
Brian, the plan is to be adjusted.

les engins à vapeur très propre aussi
Ils existent ?
...et les diesels aussi.
Je dois construire une locomotive 'verte-MOMI' qui fonctionne avec les fiouls 'bio'.....
Chez MMN (Module Momi Normand) l'alimentation passe entre un DPDT. Commande Momi (douilles bananes) \\ Voie // Commande Locale MMN et avec les fusibles, ça va éviter des problèmes....(J'étais ingénieur sur les réseaux télephoniques)
Un peu de vocabulaire français = anglais
Alimentation = (power) supply (electricity etc.) Alimentation secteur = mains supply (230vac) Courant alternatif/continu = AC/DC Numérique = digital Tension = voltage Commande = control Interrupteur, sélecteur, commutateur = switch Levier = toggle or lever Bascule = rocker or lever Fusible = fuse Réseau = network (telephone, railway) or layout (model trains)
