Sorry if this has been posted before.

1)Can the hex frog juicer and the mono frog juicer be used as an auto reverser for a return loop as well.

2) could several (4) be hooked up to a double cross over to ease or solve the wiring problems. I have seen some of the wiring solutions that call for an auto reverser. Could the "juicer " be used in this regard?

Again sorry if this has already been covered.

OK I read on the web site that it IS capable of dealing with the complications associated with a "double crossover." I think this will make my #8 double crossover wiring much easier.

OK last question on this matter.

If my calculations are correct I can use the hex frog juicer to control the 4 isolated sections of a double crossover AND the last 2 wires to control the reversing loop on my lower staging.

Does it matter how long the wires are?

Greetings,

I remember reading or hearing on a vid. that the juicer can control a frog up to 3' away without any noticable effects. The trouble is that I cannot find that documentation.

I have a Hex juicer and the furtherest turnout it controls is just about at the 3' mark. I have not noticed any trouble with it. I have a switch I was going to have to control from a further point but with the new single juicers it is now not a problem.

I went to the actual site for the frog juicer, and there is documentation there that tells a person exactly how to wire for a double cross over. Even though I was skeptical, I did as the site said and the cross over is working perfectly now.

thanks
