Description

The installation of two-wire or decoder systems is becoming increasingly popular because these systems offer great flexibility and ease of installation – but techniques and procedures required to troubleshoot two-wire/decoder systems are quite different from those employed with a conventional 24-volt system. In this half-day class, learn the proper methods and troubleshooting tools required to repair and maintain two-wire/decoder systems. Instructor Bob Dobson will use hands-on exercises to teach you about a variety of wire scopes and electrical troubleshooting equipment.
