The 15V DC 6A SMPS supplies the DCC booster rated at 5A that powers all the layout track. The MERG CBUS modules operate from a 12V DC supply with the exception of those operating the points, which require 16V AC. A new, 12V DC version of the point module is available but had not been developed when the conversion work started. The 12V DC supplies also power ancillary circuits including lighting and other scenic effects.
