Ray Shoop recently let me borrow this switch in order for me to evaluate the electronics.

I have pictures of the controller as well as the stichh drive with covers removed.

I drew a schematic of the controller and here is the blurb:

The controller has 4 feet of wire to the drive.  Plus an additional 4 feet of wire that must be attached to 18 volts AC.  I used the LGB 5006 power pack.

The frog has power switches by a microswitch inside the drive and this DPDT switch controls the status LED's also.

A manual lever is located under the removable tab in the middle of the switch drive.  Cover is there to keep unit clean.

Switch straight portion is 36 inches exactly long.  It diverges much less than the Aristo 3 foot switch.

You can add a momentary switch and parallel it to the switches inside the controller.  Wire from controller to switch drive is standard telephone 4 colors, black, red, yellow, green.

These are large files!!!!

I posted the switch information so people can add longer wire, or an additional control switch to this unit as outdoors the supplied 4 foot cable is too short.
Also, it may be easier to convert the controller/drive to another manufacturers method (air, EPL, etc.).

the drive unit is very powerful as the coils are huge.
