I managed to set up the internal AC electrical system which provides power to the DC adapter/s and the lighting system. I built the lighting system a while ago but had housed the switches in an ugly box that protruded from the front. I removed this and have now located the switches on the control panel.
I’ve covered the lighting system in the past but as a quick reminder here are some pics of the process:
I took this basic AC system and rewired it to accommodate the control panel and two new lighting switches.
I’ve decided to get rid of my original throttle plan as I’m trying to reduce the footprint of the controller as much as possible. I found this hand-held throttle online and ordered one. I’ll just connect it via some kind of plug-in male/female adapter. It will connect to the DC system and then to the various sections. I’ll have more on that another time.
