Live Streaming – Decoder Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting a two-wire decoder control system is easy – once you know what to look for in the wire path.  The process is not intuitive, and that is where this training class can help.  We will cover the operation of the two-wire path and the steps required to identify the three main causes of failure on the wire path, and open, a short, and a ground fault.
