The DB210/DB210 Opto boosters are add-on components for existing Digitrax managed layouts. This booster allows for up to 8 amps of output. With a flip of a switch, the booster can be set to 3, 5, or 8 amps output. The primary difference between the DB210 and DB210 Opto is the opto-isolation capabilities for common rail wiring, however, for DCC, it's recommended to not use common rail wiring.

In addition to the DB210, a DC power supply is required. The DB210 can accept DC input from 13.8v to 24v, with amp requirements of 3, 5, or 8 amps, depending on what has been selected as the output current capability. Although the mfr recommends the use of their power supplies, and stable high-quality DC power supply will work fine.
