NEW DCC Autofrog from Gaugemaster

NEW DCC Autofrog from Gaugemaster

Published: 07/07/2016 13:16:03

A new product to make automating DCC frog polarity switching quick and simple!

Gaugemaster Autofrog

The DCC80 Autofrog is a simple relay switch that automatically changes the point frog polarity on your DCC layout, available in singles and packs of three.

In most situations, the use of electrofrog points is recommended on digital layouts to ensure reliability but this can make extra switching more complicated than it needs to be.

Wiring the DCC80

This is simple and requires three solder connections on the board, two connections labelled R which connect to the rails or your bus, and one connection labelled F which you connect to the frog input wire.

As there are so many variations of point/turnout, we recommend you follow your track manufacturers instructions. For example, we have shown below a typical set up where the frog is isolated by an optional track break this avoids unwanted short circuits if you forget to throw the point.

With the frog powered by the DCC80, it can detect the incoming polarity of the wheels and switches the frog to match.

This will be a very useful product if you are using electrofrog points on your digital layout, as you will not have to wire in any manual switches to switch frog polarity.
