As a general rule , 20-60 ohms is a good reading

Off the top of my head, I don't recall exact numbers, but it should be something on the order of 20ish to 50ish ohms when testing across the common and a single control wire.

Testing Wiring

Sorry for the beginner question. I am trying to test the wiring between the controller and the control valves. As i understand I need to check the resistance after disconnecting the common wire and the station specific power wire. What should the resistance reading be assuming wiring is good and solenoids are good?
