Trying to connect a Lenz LS150 switch decoder to LGB switches. The LGB switches have 2 wire connections and the decoder is asking fo 3 wires. Am I trying to do something that can't be done?

Bob-

Have you tried using the instructions for "motorized switch machines" listed on page #7 of the manual? You will need to install two diodes and adjust the pulse duration for the outputs. Running with a 16VAC input, I'd start with a pulse duration of about 0.3sec. Only increase the pulse duration if the EPL drive fails to throw.

Best regards,
