To take that thought about Richmond Controls a little further . . . what I note on the Richmond site is that their products are only safe with DCC systems that maximum are 16 volts. Anything more is too much. That worried me a bit, although a resistor can be added to protect the circuit.

Hi all,

Claus - I'm working on a different circuit that is still based upon using
a super cap ... that can be used for either LEDs or bulbs - at the same
time. "Watch this space."

George - I don't even know what circuit Richmond sells. I've used
their products in the past and they work just fine ... but they tend to
target the DC market ... and the last time I checked they were very
"proud" of them. It was the available circuits such as those from
Richmond Controls that "sent me looking for an alternative that
works for/is designed for LEDs -and- works in either DC or DCC".

- Jim B.
