Please note that in this video I describe wire colors for the power supply wires. These colors are based on US practices and may be different in other countries with their own wiring conventions. If you are not familiar with the wiring colors used in your country please consult a local expert or use a pre-wired power supply.
While you can just plop your DCC system on a board or sheet of plywood under your layout you can make it last a lot longer if you go the extra mile and install it in an enclosure with a fan to keep it cool and dust free. There are also some nice touches you can add such as a clear acrylic door and DCC Concepts Alpha Meter to give you a readout of the voltage and amperage that the command station or booster is supplying. Having your wiring neatly arranged in the enclosure can also help when it comes to trouble shooting the inevitable issues that may pop up. So take a few minutes to watch me build an enclosure in part 1 and in part 2 we’ll add the fan and other niceties along with the DCC components and power supply.
