Hi I am new to this forum and although I've been reading for a while, I still cannot get my head around the digital world.
So I have got an O gauge train layout made up with Lenz track points and a Peco double slip crossing. My DCC unit is Lenz. 
My plan is to drive the trains with the Lenz system, but have a stand alone unit for point control with a mimic board or a simple switch box.
I would like to use the cobalt digital point motors. The Lenz points have a frog wire sticking out which I use to make it live ( red arrow). Ignore blue arrow.

How to wire the double slip I have no idea yet. Perhaps someone has got a picture how to wire that one ?
In order to have a Lenz Independent system could I run my layout like in this advice?

Thank you all for reading and helping me in advance.

Kind regards Sandra

Oh and before I forget, I would like to have signals linked to the points, so that if the point switches, so does the signal. ðŸ˜Š

Hi Sandra, all I can offer I'm afraid is a welcome to the forum and an apology for not being able to help you.  I am only recently back into the hobby after a lifetime of absence so I too spend a lot of time trying to get my head around the details of the DCC way of controlling things.  What I can say though is that the team at DCCconcepts will be on line to help you during today.  I know there are a lot of diagrams on the website for download but could not find a double slip for you but I'm sure there will be one. 

Feel free to ask any questions that you may have as there will always be someone here to help.

Hi Sandra,
Welcome to the forum.

The diagram you have linked to is ideal for a stand-alone point control system using Cobalt Digital IP point motors. 

If you are using separate control for the points, you will have to wire the frogs via the S2 contacts - link to diagram.
https://www.dccconcepts.com/manual/cobalt-ip-digital-wired-from-an-accessory-bus/

For the double slip - the linked diagram shows the relationship between the point motors and the opposite frogs.
However - this diagram does not show a separate accessory feed.
You will have to connect frogs (and DCC track feed) via the S2 switches of the Cobalt Digital IP motors as per the first diagram.

Hope this helps.
