For DCC systems 2 Amps to 8 Amps including NCE PowerCab. This board can be configured to use as an automatic polarity reverser for six frogs, or a reverser for one to three reversing loops, turntables, wyes, or crossings. Setup is simple, connect the input to the DCC track bus, and connect the output wires either to six frogs or rails. Two jumper controls whether the two, four or six outputs act as pairs (i.e. an auto-reverser) or independently (i.e. a pair of frog juicer). Should not be used with boosters over 10 Amps. See the Dual Frog Juicer for 10 Amp boosters.

DCC Mono Frog Juicer (polarity reverser for frogs)
For all DCC systems including NCE PowerCab. This board is an automatic polarity reverser for a single frog. Setup is simple, connect two wires to the DCC bus and one wire to a frog. The frog should be fully isolated. When a train crosses the turnout and the frog is the wrong polarity, the frog juicer will reverse the polarity so quickly that the train and the rest of the DCC system will never notice. Should not be used with boosters over 5 Amps. See the Dual Frog Juicer for 10 Amp boosters.
DCC Circuit Breaker
Perfect Protection for your Frog Juicers!
This is the same board as the Dual Frog Juicer but confugured 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. 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. Setup is simple, connect the input to the DCC track bus, and connect the output wires to the district to be protected.

Servos for Throwing up to 8 Turnouts Plus Accessories!
Board has 8 positions for driving servos between two positions and 8 inputs for fascia controllers (see below) or toggle switches. Octopus III uses the remote board (below) to align the servos and has automated endpoint adjustment as well as full manual control. Ideal for use with miniature servos and the servo mounting kit (available here). Power with 7.5-24V filtered DC (do not use AC and please do not use old "powerpacks" - they are not filtered). Octopus III has a built-in switching power supply for high efficiency and greater range. You should budget 1 Amp per board with 1 Amp overhead (for when the servos are driving to new positions). So 3 octos should have a 4 Amp power supply. Board is 2.5" x 1.9" in size.
OCT030$42.50 $34.00 USD
Remote Aligner for Octopus III Used with the Octopus III (above) for alignment of servos (cannot be used with the Octopus II). Just one of these needed for all of your Octopus IIIs. Comes with a 7' cable which allows you to stand next to your turnout while aligning the servo - no more acrobatics and hanging upside down below the layout! The cable is a 6-pin straight data cable (not a phone type cable). Board is 2.7" x 1.7" in size.
OCT031 $12.00 $9.00 USD
Octocoder - Stationary DCC decoder Add-on for Octopus II/III You can control your Octopus II or III with the Octocoder, a simple stationary DCC decoder. The board provides connections os you can also connect fascia controllers and LEDs for local control. (Will not work with toggle switches however.) No CVs to program - just put on the address jumper and issue a turnout command from your throttle to set the address block. Uses 8 consecutive DCC addresses.
Micro Switch Machine w/ Snap Switch For use with Octo III, , Micro Singlet, Singlet II+, SwitchWright, Quad-PIC, Quad-LN or other RC servo compatible board
The Micro Switch Machine is based on the SG90 servo with a 5 Amp rated snap switch mounted so that it is turned on and off at half throw - ideal for powering frogs. The wire actuator is already mounted for you. The Micro Switch Machine is ready to go. Comes with a piece of double-sided foam tape for ease of mounting as well as 3 #4x1/2" screws for permanent mounting. Use with any of your servo decoders to power a turnout and the contacts provide frog power.
MSW001 $12.95 $10.20 USD
Micro Switch Machine (without Snap Switch) For use with Octo III, , Micro Singlet, Singlet II+, SwitchWright, Quad-PIC, Quad-LN or other RC servo compatible board
The Micro Switch Machine is based on the SG90 servo. This version does not have the snap switch mounted saving you money if you have another way to power the frog or you don't need powered frogs. The wire actuator is already mounted for you. The Micro Switch Machine is ready to go. Comes with a piece of double-sided foam tape for ease of mounting as well as 3 #4x1/2" screws for permanent mounting. Use with any of your servo decoders to power a turnout.
