EOSMAC ISSUE:
radio communication problems

To power down a Toro E-Series OSMAC system, flip the circuit breaker on the power supply inside the cabinet to the "Off" position.

If your Toro E-Series OSMAC system is having radio communication issues, begin troubleshooting the issue by checking the condition of the Decoder Module:

  1. Check for corrosion on all connectors and pins on the Decoder Module.
  2. Check all parts on the Decoder Module to see if any are hot to the touch.

  3. If the Decoder Module exhibits either of the above issues, we recommend the Decoder Module be sent in for reconditioning. Create a BoardTronics Shipping Label HERE. If the Decoder Module is in good condition, continue troubleshooting the issue by checking the configuration of the Decoder Module:

  4. Make sure the channel select jumpers on the Decoder Module are in the correct position. Test the system again if you made a correction.
  5. If the issue persists after the channel select jumper correction, or if they were in the correct position to begin with, set all address dip switches on the Decoder Module to the OFF position.
  6. Change your address to 0.
  7. From a handheld radio, run the following sequence: *9 000 7540. This command will turn off all water controlled by the Decoder Module.
  8. Watch for a red blinking LED light on the Decoder Module after running the sequence.
  9. If there is no LED activity, there is a communication problem with the Decoder Module and it must be sent in for reconditioning. Create a BoardTronics Shipping Label HERE.
  10. If the LED light does blink, set your address to 255 and set all address dip switches to the ON position.
  11. From a handheld radio, run the following sequence: *9 255 7540.
  12. Again, watch for LED activity after running the sequence.
  13. If there is no LED activity, one of the address dip switches on the Decoder Module is faulty, and the Decoder Module must be sent in for reconditioning. Create a BoardTronics Shipping Label HERE.
  14. If you do see LED activity after running the sequence, verify that the Decoder Module is communicating with the 8-Station Output Boards by following the instructions HERE.
