Do you know what's a drag? Sluggish windshield wipers on your train. Here's a tip to help you out.
The nominally 12 V and 24 V wiper motors that power boat, truck and tractor wiper systems really operate at charging voltages of 13.5 V and 27 V, respectively. However, many locomotive generating systems operate at 110 V and light rail often runs at 74 V. They then use an inverter to step down high-voltage.
If you use a setpoint of 24 V or 12 V, you’ll end up with wipers that operate at a snail's pace. Instead, use setpoints of either 27 V or 13.5 V to pep up your wipers.
