Wiring Harness for Model Rail
These wiring sets are provided to simplify fitting R/C to your model railway locomotive. Please contact us if you do not see a suitable harness here - we will make one and add it to the list.
This wiring harness is for locos that require 4S LiPo power (14.4V) with the battery split into 2 x 2S packs. This configuration is useful for tank locos with a 2S battery in each side tank. The harness includes a switch module with on/off switch, balance/charge socket and LED for repeating the receiver on-board LED (Deltang 'LED2').
The harness is made to fit your loco and you need to download the annotated wiring diagram and let us have the wire lengths. Please contact us if anything on the diagram is not clear.
Molex 2mm connectors are used throughout as these provide a good combination of small size, protection from shorts and current handling. The harness is supplied with a set of mating connectors for you to fit to your batteries and receiver. A Rx65 receiver and 2S LiPo are available already fitted with matching connectors so that you can simply fix into your loco and plug the components together. The only solder joint you will need to make is to attach the motor lead to your motor.
A Molex to JST-XH adapter lead is available separately as you need only one adapter lead to charge multiple loco installations.
This wiring harness is for locos that use a NiMH, or similar, battery, requiring a simple 2 wire connection. This harness should not be used for Lithium type batteries as these must be used with multi-pole charge connection. The harness includes a battery socket, inline resettable fuse, on/off switch, charge socket and bare-end power leads for connection to your receiver.
The standard configuration is a JST-RCY socket for the battery, 100mm battery / receiver power leads, toggle on/off(charge) switch, and a 50mm lead to the 5.5/2.1mm DC charge socket. These may be changed using the menus below.
Please select connector and lead length options from the menus below. If a bespoke wire length is selected (W1, W2 or W3) please include a note on the checkout page of the required length or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.:
