DCC Circuit Breaker “Power District”

This is the same board as the Dual Frog Juicer but is factory configured to work as a circuit breaker. When there is a short it will cut off both rails at once. This solves some problems where only one rail is cut off and wheels bridge to another active rail. Also the auto-reverse has been disabled – this gets around the issue of having an auto-reversing section and frog juicers within the district powered by the circuit breaker. Cut off current limit can be set to either 2 Amps or 4 Amps with jumpers.

701-CFJ003U

LEDs have been changed to indicate green for normal operation and red for a short. You can also add a remote LED to indicate a short. It has 33 Amp transistors so it can be used with 10 Amp boosters. To setup, connect the input to the DCC track bus and the output wires to the district to be protected.

DCC Dual Frog Juicer and Auto-Reverser

This Juicer is for all DCC systems including NCE PowerCab. This board can be configured to use as an automatic polarity reverser for two frogs or an auto-reverser for a turntable, a dog bone, a wye, or a crossing. It uses the same basic design as the hex frog juicer but has 33 Amp transistors so it can be used with multi-unit lashups and 10 Amp boosters. Setup is simple, connect the input to the DCC track bus, and connect the output wires either to two frogs or two rails.

A jumper controls whether the two outputs act as a pair (i.e. an auto-reverser) or independently (i.e. a pair of frog juicers). Another pair of jumpers controls the current set point for switching, either 2 Amps or 4 Amps. Generally the 2 Amp setting works best for frogs or crossings. Gennerally the 4 Amps setting works best an auto-reversing application.
(Note: Both DCC ( buss ) connections MUST be in the same power district.)
