OK folks, having a contact track issue. My CS2 isn't recognizing anything from my S88, specifically contact tracks. I tested with a voltmeter. Good continuity, in wire from track to S88. When a Loco is on the track, voltmeter between S88 and the wire from the contact track shows 7.5 volts. Could my S88 be fried? The last update fried my MS2.

Thank you to Juhan Palm. He told me that the "T" on the S88 had to be connected to ground, (brown or O on the Track.

Ok, as I asked also in the FB group - Is the "T" connection connected to common ground ("brown") ?

To me it seems like you have different voltage levels regarding ground and s88 detection...


Edit - Whoops, you were faster than me here... BigGrin
Now I wonder, did it fix the problem?

Edit again - according to the FB topic, it did... Smile

And Brian, this forum can answer almost any question regarding anything regarding Märklin issues & other stuff... Wink

Seems like the guys at the FB group "Marklin HO AC/ Digital (Märklin HO Wechselstrom/ Digital)" are not as quick... BigGrin
