Tortise edge connectorsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Wiring for DCC : One Thread
I have installed TORTISE switch machines on my new DCC layout. Does anyone know of a location to purchase edge connectors for the Tortise machines ?
I would like to locate a source before I start the wiring of switch machines.
Thanks, Ron Straley

Loy's toys and Tony's Train exchange both sell a 10 position edge connector made by EDAC. I have used them and use pieces of styrene to block off the unused pins so that it is not possible to put the on wrong. EDAC does make an 8 position connector but they are hard to find and cost more than the 10 position ones. The 10 pos. ones area lso available from DigiKey.
