DNO

DNO Current Limit Adjustment

As standard the DNO-5 and DNO-10 have their current limited to approx 50A and 100A respectively. These values are controlled by the value of the DNO current limit adjustment resistor R25 in the diagram below, Read More

DNO Under Voltage Protection

Although the DNO does not have an under voltage protection cut-off fitted as standard it is easy to retro-fit this feature. There are two ways to do this; Method 1; the easiest, is to cut Read More

DNO Version history

The DNO PCB number is 30-2D-01. The following is a list of modifications listed by serial number. The DNO was originally designed to block transition from ahead to reverse without reducing the throttle to zero. Read More

Disabling regen braking [DNO]

Although the DNO is very similar to the VTX, one feature that it does not have is the provision for disabling regen braking via on-board links. A number of people have asked if it is Read More

Double Heading Wiring Diagram [DNO]

This diagram shows how to connect two DNOs in different model locomotives together using the expansion port.     You can download a PDF version here. For the slave cable we recommend using a bulgin Read More

Driving the DNO by Raspberry Pi

Our DNO range is ideally suited for use as an interface between a Raspberry Pi, Arduino  etc, and a motor. The Pi can provide a PWM output via its GPIO pins and this can be Read More

Positional Servo Control [DNO / VTX]

Notes on how to create a positional servo control. There are two types of servo system: speed and position. These are explained in our Answers to FAQs on Battery Motors & Controllers. There is also Read More

Wiring for Push Button Use

This diagram shows how to connect a Pro or DNO (or earlier NTX and NCC) series controller for push button use, or with a centre-off switch. Note that the diode shown between the buttons must Read More
