RailPro Discussion & Help / Re: Frog Juicers compatible with RailPro?
« Last post by Tom on July 16, 2018, 09:20:30 PM »
Can someone explain how to wire an ANE v5 AP003 Smartfrog?  I am not certain I understood the wiring explanation by Joel on August 7, 2016.  My frame of reference is frog juicer where a + and – from the power buss goes into the frog juicer and then up to 6 individual wires are each run from the frog juicer to up to six individual frogs - simple enough.  But where does the power go into on the ANE v5 Smartfrog: the “TRACK+”, the “TRACK-“, or somewhere else?  If it either one or the other, is there anything else besides connecting the actual frog to “FROG” on the Smartfrog?

I noticed when using LM-2S/2 and the bridge rectifier there was lots of low voltage alerts because of the voltage drop. The LM3/3S is much more suited to using a keep alive as there's no voltage drop to the module. Occasionally I still see it when the train has lots of power up front, but it never affects performance and is normally gone within a few seconds.

Also if you are using the Full Bridge Rectifier with a Keep Alive you will see the occasional under voltage warning. As stated, more feeders will generally help.

You'll also get the low-voltage warning if you have spotty power connection.  If your loco wheels or track are dirty then that message will pop up.  Cleaning both will typically solve the problem.

If you don't get the warning when the loco is at the spot where you have the leads now and you do get the warning when the loco is furthest away from the leads then yes, adding more feeders will solve the problem. You could also solder the rail joiners or bump up the power supply by a volt or so if you have that option.

If I'm getting a low voltage message does that mean I need to add more leads to get better power around the track? I'm only running two locks

Thanks

Okay, thanks!  I'm a total novice at this and need to sharpen my soldering skills before attempting an install.  Need to investigate and see what videos are available on-line.  thanks again.

 Since most installations might be different, I could not show all of the places I stuffed cell phone speakers. Depending on the engine and I only have diesel types, you can layout the module and speaker to see where they can fit before attaching them down. The cell phone speaker that Bill has on his website for sale, can be cut down as you do not need all of it but I haven't had the need to cut one yet. So there is no plan to follow as you just do a trial and error see find out what will work. Now if you are into steam? That is a whole different game as you have a tender to drop all of the goodies in and not having to worry about room. Some steam engines do have room in the cab and doesn't look very good but some boilers have enough room. Grab an engine, module plus a speaker and go for it as it will fit something somewhere. Go for it #########. TOF  8) in Arid-Zona
