If you just treat the slip as two points back to back it works. A feed to each rail in the centre and then a switch feed for each frog with the supply from the same point as the feed. I have wired my scratch built one this way and its fine so the peco one should be the same. Its the same for DC or DCC but remember to put insulated joiners on all rails at the frogs to avoid shorts.

The Peco 0 gauge double slip comes with 4 wires attached. One two each of the two acute frog areas. The other two attached to the two curved stock rails. All the bits of rail in the middle and the blades are linked to the nearest stock rail so that basically the slip is electrically in two halves with two frogs which need to be switched. How you arrange to switch the frogs is up to you. If you wish to work the slip by hand (say in a fiddle yard) a changeover microswitch positioned to be operated by the tie-bar would work. It you use a point motor then one with a changeover switch would be required for each set of blades. Note the frog is switched in conjunction with the blades at the opposite end. ( Imagine two Y points that overlap in the middle).
