The LK200 is used in situations where you could get a short circuit because of the track arrangement such as reverse loops, triangular junctions and turntables.

This is the basic wiring for a reverse loop:
Using the Kato Unitrack 20-283 turntable with DCC.  The Lenz LK200 reverse loop module can be used with any good quality DCC System
The LK200 can be fitted to a turntable to switch over the polarity as it turns

Lenz  12200 LK200 Reverse-loop module 

This newly developed module LK200 is safe due to fault current principle, polarity change takes place at 100mA residual current, indicated by LED. Switching is carried out electronically without  a relay giving high change speed and no mechanical wear. Wiring is very easy (like LK100), no additional control connections, sensor tracks or the like required. Maximum load capacity: 5A.

The LK200 is the real solution for reverse loops, triangles and turntables: easy wiring, high switching speed and as much safety as possible.  Make you reverse sections long enough to accommadate the longest train that will use them so that you do not bridge both ends of the insulated track at the same time.

The LK200 is not intended to switch polarity on the frogs (Vee) of Electrofrog diamond crossovers  (Peco SL-E193 SL-E194...)
