    Hi
    Î'm a newbie here so hopefully I've landed in the right thread area.
    In the attachment is schematic control panel idea for my model railway. As an absolute dummy regarding wiring can anyone suggest to me how to fulfill this wish.

    Most important for me are the amp measurements and the main Voltmeter.
    Q: Can I use breadboards?
    Q: Are there Standard wiring methods for amp/Voltmeter measurements
    Q: I hate soldering. Is there a way to connect without?

    Happy for any suggestions/ideas
    Best regards and thanks in advance to you all.

    I would say Definately Not, not if you want reliability!.

    Yes there are typical methods, but if using simple analogue meters then all you need is a volt meter and a series shunt if measuring using a analogue meter for DC current.

    If your original meaning was for wiring the whole panel, it looks like a job for a PLC of some some kind?
