Installing the LocoNet
Into Your Module - Page2
Here's a view of the bottom side
of the module. It's a mirror image of the top side.
Coming in from the top we have the
piece of cable we cut to length with the two male plugs crimped on, and
plugged into the RJ12 double-female extension cords.
At the right end we have the RJ12
double-female extension cord going to the right end of the module (we'll
show you a photo of that in a minute).
Let's take a closer
look at the RJ12 female throttle jack at the bottom left.
This one has two jacks in one.
A short piece of cable has been wired
into the each female jack. We'll show you some tips on how to do
this later. It's easier to do this at the workbench as the prep work
also includes cutting back the size of the plastic faceplate.
The throttle jack has then been installed
into the side of the module, the cable cut to length and a male RJ12 plug
crimped onto the end.
Let's finish our
trip by moving to the right end of the module. Here's an overview
of the right half of the module.
The RJ12 double-female extension
cord has been cut to length and a male plug crimped onto the end.
An RJ12 female-female gender bender
will connect the LocoNet from this module to the next module.
Or you can run the cable to another
double-female extension cord and install another throttle jack......and
keep on going.
Or you can run a cable to your command
station, crimp an RJ12 male plug on the end and plug it into your command
Let's take a look
at some tips if you've run into some problems and your LocoNet isn't working.
Here's a methodical way for tracing those problems.
