32/0.2 is for medium to large DCC layouts, where multiple throttles are to be used and/or any form of power booster is incorporated in the layout.
Dropper Wire is used in short lengths to link the track to the Track Bus. These are connected together using the Quick Splice Connectors.
The Quick Splice Connectors are no solder IDC type. To use, simply push the connector over the Bus Wire and push the Dropper Wire into the other hole. Close the metal splice with a pair of pliers and then fold the insulating clip over.
