GENERAL DESCRIPTION: The CIRCUITRON AS-1 is a solid state voltage dropping circuit that  provides many advantages over the traditional methods of reducing train speed within a given  section of track. When a dropping resistor is used to reduce a trains speed, the voltage  dropped across the resistor is a direct function of the current being drawn by the locomotive. If  all the locomotives on a layout draw exactly the same amount of current, then the speed reduction will be equal for all units. If, however, as is more often the case, the locomotives draw varying currents, then certain trains will slow down too much, and other trains may not slow down enough. The CIRCUITRON AS-1 helps to overcome these problems with its solid state circuitry. The AS-1 will provide a nearly constant voltage drop over its complete range of currents (up to 2 amps). This voltage drop can be adjusted so that the output voltage will be anywhere between 1/4 and 3/4 of the input voltage.
