Hope all is well had a quick question for you maybe you can help me with? I just built a new trainer compact logix 5069-L306ER I am having issues with the output card im not sure what im missing. I have all the inputs wired up they are just 4-2position switches those are working however when I program them to my outputs im not getting any voltage on the output at the card and my lights not coming on obviously. I have 1 output going to each side of the light and then I have a dc- going to the other side of the light. I attached some pictures on here for you.
