- sub-stations,
- battery boxes,

In 1961, Jouef adopted new international standards and DC voltage current passed from 6 Volts DC to 12 Volts DC. Note the transformer "Prima-Transfo" issued in 1963 and remaining unfollowed, the transformer is set along a special rail track and the transformer weight provides electrical contacts and that we move a few centimeters to reverse the polarity on tracks. In parallel, the cell batteries boxes use three batteries flat 4.5 Volts, instead of two batteries flat 4.5 Volts, new motor engines installed in locomotives being more compact but more greedy , and front lighting engine becoming general. Transformers are fitted with a circuit breaker protecting the transformer in case of accidental short circuit or overload. On technical side, operation of these processors is very simple, adjusting the voltage output being in the same way a rheostat where one takes a more or less of turns secondary transformer. The central button is used to adjust the output voltage as a potentiometer. A 3 positions button allows the stopping, walking forward or reverse. Gradually, transformers are fitted with a 16 volts AC output to power the various electrical accessories (electric switching points, lamps ,...). The transformers will be marketed over many years, in two versions depending on the main voltage 110 volts or 220 volts until 1970, then gradually bi-voltage or 220 volts from 1971 to 1978, and finally only 220 volts in the late 1970 when the EDF network releases only the last tension. A circuit breaker protects against short-circuits or too strong calls for current. In mid-1980, electronics became cheaper and cheaper, it made its appearance in switching power supplies, allowing smooth starts and stops even in a low voltage delivered to the tracks. In mid 1990 a European directive for electrical appliances safety, has the effect of imposing a block-low voltage transformer that plugs directly on the main plugs, voltage control to track and reverse polarity are made in a second box with some electronics parts issuing a chopped voltage.

12 volts DC power supply range

Transformers with AC output only are dedicated to feed electric accessories (electric switch points, lamps ...) or sub-stations.
You can use the sub-station for on new train model circuit which is electrically isolated from one or more train model circuit(s).
A battery generator gives electric supply for one electric locomotive without lights.
