Athern SD-70 / Digitrax DN163K1B Short Circut
« on: October 29, 2008, 12:32:25 PM »
At this point I have burned up 2 digitrax decoders even after following the .pdf Athern Service announcment to avoid shorting decoder witht he SD-70 series engines.  The wording is vague to me what is meant by "make sure the engine contacts do not touch the motor can or frame".  How would you avoid contact with the frame?  I lined the frame with kapton tape, but no avail and I thus I saw a mushroom cloud rise from the second decoder.

Feedback appreciated greatly!
