Misc. Aristo Electronics

I've listed other items that Aristo makes that are not really R/C devices.

5400 - Power and Controller

Small power supply with controller in one unit. 1.8 amps. 0-21v, 22 VA max. Pulse power output ONLY. At 22va, this has to put out under an amp. Throw this away unless you only use it for a small loco going slow. DO NOT use this to test large scale locomotives. This means you James!

5401 - Controller

This is a "throttle" that given fixed DC as an input, produces a variable output and also has a reversing switch.

The early models handled 3.5 amps, the newer ones will handle 10 amps.

Note: the 5401 generates PWM only, no "linear" DC.

Remember you need an external DC supply.

5460/55460 - "Ultima" - power supply

This is a unregulated DC power supply with basically an AC transformer, a rectifier, and a small filter capacitor. There is also an inaccurate amp meter.

The output voltage drops quite a bit according to load, from about 20 volts unloaded to 15-17 volts under full load. It is in a case identical to my old Sears battery charger.

The voltage may not be sufficient for all locos, most people standardize on 24 volts and regulated power supplies.
