This installation of TCS DP2X-UK Decoder is for the HO Scale LifeLike Proto 2000 FA1 (w/out Mars Light) and was performed by TCS

Important Soldering Tip:
Please do not use any flux either liquid or paste on the mother board. It will damage it. Use only Rosin core solder approved for electronics use.
We recommend to use only Kester "44" rosin core, SN63PB37, .015" diameter, part number 24-6337-0007.
This can be ordered from Techni-Tool under Techni-Tool part number 488SO157

First remove the shell by starting to lift it at the rear of the locomotive and then gently tipping it forward and allowing the front coupler to slide through the shell.

Next, gently spread the wires covering the 8-Pin NMRA jumper (highlighted above)and remove the dummy plug.

Finally, plug the DP2X-UK in as demonstrated in the image below. Make sure that the decoder is fully seated in the socket, and that it is oriented the same as the image below.

You can now carefully replace the shell and your locomotive is ready to run!



Other solder tips: When stripping wire, only strip a tiny little bit of the insulation. Strip no more then a 1/64 of an inch. When the wire gets tinned with solder the insulation will shrink back more. Try to not expose any more wire then half the length of the solder pad at most. In no case should solder or exposed wire wire ever be outside the boundary of the the solder pad you are attaching a wire to.
