What steps would Rferullo take to look for low voltage coming to his socket?

I just received my first order. Great value!
Matrix system makes adding LED strip lighting super easy. Thanks for a great product!

Bad contacts at one of the connectors would be a common problem

Where in the chain does the voltage start to sag?

Thanks, I will test the entire chain as well as some random sockets on other strings to get an overall idea of the GI voltage and where is drops off.

FYI - I'm working on a STTNG and the GI sting in question is F106. I actually blew the OCD GI fuse for that string when I hooked up the clips and as a result I found the OCD GI fuse is a 2 amp. I didn't have a 2 amp that matched but I had a 3 amp. That is working for now while I get 2 amps.

Putting in a 50% larger value fuse is the perfect set up for board damage:

Pinbot, not Bride of Pinbot! Not that it makes that much difference, they're both System 11 games
I'll start up a thread and see what we can come up with. Curious to get to the bottom of it! There might be some insight from the guy who's working on the bicycle girl Walking Dead light mod...

Technically Bride is a WPC with a Alpha Numeric Display..
