IL-1 and IL-2 - Interior Lighting for Model Railroad Buildings
The IL-1 uses a white LED to provide interior lighting for model railroad buildings. It requires a 5 volt DC power source for operation. Current draw is 3 milliamps. The IL-2 is identical to the IL-1 except the wire leads are longer. The VRR5 or the ADAPT5 are recommended power sources.
IL-1 & IL-2 Specifications -
Input voltage range: 3.3 to 5 volts DC (requires 5 volts for full brightness).
Current drain: 3 milliamps
.22" x .2"
6 mm x 5 mm
Wire Lead Lengths: IL-1 = 8" (20 cm) - IL-2 = 16" (40 cm)

VRR5 Rectifier and Voltage Regulator
The VRR-5 is a rectifier plus voltage regulator with a fixed 5 volt DC output to supply power for lighting model railroad buildings. It can be powered by either AC, DC or DCC input power. The VRR-5 can deliver up to 1 amp of output current. It is equipped with screw terminals for easy, no-soldering connection.
Since the VRR-5 is a equipped with an input rectifier it can be powered from any AC or DC power source between 6 volts to 25 volts. This source could be the 19 VAC output on the MRC powerpacks, the track power on a DCC system or “wall-wart” type power adapter.
The VRR-5 is perfect for powering our IL-1 (or IL-2) building illumination boards.
VRR-5 Specifications -
Input voltage range: 6 to 25 volts AC or DC.
Output voltage 5 volts (+ or - 5%):
Output current: Up to 1 amp.
Short-Circuit current limited to 1.6 amps
One year limited warranty.
1.4" x 1.32" x 0.5"
35mm x 33 mm x 8 mm.
