Heljan O Gauge Class 17 with Zimo MS Booster

O Gauge Heljan Class 17 Clayton with Zimo MS sound using booster board

Kit: MS450PluX22; ADAPLU booster; YLR603010 speaker; SuperCap17000uF

Similar approach to the MX Booster install guide, but this time using an MS series Zimo sound decoder in a PluX22 Booster board.

Example 1 Example 1

Speaker compartment underneath is an awkward shape for anything but a round speaker, which we're tried a few of, and found they don't perform well enough to be worthwhile.

Example 1 Example 1

The model provides an 'L' DCC socket, which will take an MS950 sound decoder, but we didn't have any at the time of this installation, so go with a PluX22 booster approach instead.

Example 1 Example 1

We will retain the fan PCB, though moved a little to create space for our YLR603010 speaker.

Example 1

We begin the process of transferring the model's wires to appropriate solder pads on the ADAPLU booster board (solder pads).

Example 1 Example 1

Example 1 Example 1

All wired in now, we test everything out using the MS450PluX22 sound decoder plugged in.

Example 1 Example 1

Lighting wires are connected as follows F0Fwd for front headcode, F0Rev for rear headcode, FA1 for front reds, FA2 for rear reds, FA3 for fan.

Example 1 Example 1

A SuperCap17000uF is used for the stay-alive, which is BlackTacked to the side after wrapping in Kapton.

Example 1 Example 1

The YLR60301 has its' lugs cut off and it then just fits between the cab and the fan in the roof, attachced up with BlackTack.
