Help with Atlas Controller/Reversing Loop
Hi everyone, new to the forums. Ive been searching around for an answer to this problem with no luck. I need to buy a wiring book, just havent been able to do it yet. Ive been in and out of this hobby for a long time, so I once knew this, just cant seem to get it right! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have a reversing loop that will not work right. I have a positive connection and common wire coming from the loop, and a positive and common outside of the loop. I have both commons going into the Controller Common/C slot. I have a positive from the loop going to X or Y and then the other positive going to the other. On the left side of the controller I have the two leads connected to the DC controller.
Right now nothing else is done because Im trying to make sure I have this right before moving on. When I am outside of the loop engine works ok, as soon as it hits the isolated portion of the loop it dies. If I switch the top red button to the other side and nudge the engine it picks back up again, although I have to switch the direction on the dc controller first. Same thing happens when trying to exit the loop.
