It can put out 3 Amps continuous and 5 Amps in bursts. It can also take higher voltages, up to 28 volts. We have had many requests for a receiver that can work with garden scale and here it is.
You can also use this unit as a remote booster to run accessories or regular DCC trains with. In this use you can get around the DCC signal degradation problem common on wires over 30 feet long. If the transmitter and receiver are mounted near the ceiling and no obstacles between, and given a typical antenna placement inside a plastic shell, this unit should work up to 100 feet from the transmitter. There is a red LED that indicates signal strength on the board. A bright LED indicates a strong signal and a dim LED indicates a barely receivable carrier wave. The LED indicates the strength of the carrier signal (i.e useful radio energy) not the total amount of radio energy (i.e. interference).
