Default AirWire Adapta-1 install in an Aristo GP40

Installation of the adapter board with a G3 Decoder in my GP40 was very easy. The instructions are well written and illustrated. I did have to install the battery in the fuel tank due to its size (6400mAh). Previous installations of AirWire Decoders in Aristo engines usually required the time consuming task of rewiring the motors and lights.

What is this adapter board?

Does it increase the AMP capabilities of the Airwire Decoder board?

It is made by Airwire for Aristo locomotives so that wiring a Airwire decoder is alot easier.

JJ, The Air wire has 10 AMP outputs. The new board does not change that. It plugs into the Aristo socket and gives you screw terminals to wire to.

Well it also appears to have transistors or rectifiers plus some filtering

Ahh it plugs into the socket and then you plug your decoder into it.

Strange, so it gives you access to I'd guess the "functional" pins of the 12 pin side.

2 motor, 2 track, 2 lights, common and minus???

So in a normal situation I guess it allows you to connect something that the decoder can't...

maybe easy way to get to the track leads if you are going battery?

also maybe the lighting outputs on an aristo, but I think you might have to cut traces to isolate from the aristo electronics.

The picture you show tony is not what is in his loco, the polyswitch is not there.
