Personnel Hazard Warning
Dangerous Voltages
Dangerous line voltages reside in certain locations in this equipment. Also, this equipment
may generate dangerous voltages. Although Flash Technology has incorporated every
practical safety precaution, exercise extreme caution at all times when you expose circuits
and components, and when you operate, maintain, or service this equipment.
Avoid Touching Live Circuits
Avoid touching any component or any part of the circuitry while the equipment is operating.
Do not change components or make adjustments inside the equipment with power on.
Dangerous Voltages Can Persist with Power Disconnected
Under certain conditions, dangerous voltages can be present because capacitors can retain
charges even after the power has been disconnected.
Protect yourself — always turn off the input (primary) power and wait five minutes for
storage capacitors to drain their charge. Then check the system controller’s TB2 output
terminals with a voltmeter for any residual charge before touching any circuit element or
component.
Do Not Depend on Interlocks
Never depend on interlocks alone to remove unsafe voltages. Always check circuits with a
voltmeter. Under no circumstances remove or alter any safety interlock switch.

LED Lighting Systems have been
designed for long life, reducing the need
for service. Ease of installation and
service is enhanced by simple wiring,
setup, and diagnostics. Increased safety is
provided with operating voltages of less
than 60VDC.
Each Lighting System consists of one or
more SC 370d, SC 370w or SC 370r, here
after referred to as SC 370, power and
control unit(s) and its associated
flashhead. Each flashhead requires its
own SC 370. A maximum of six (6) SC
370s and associated flashheads may be
FTS 370d/w/r
connected to form one lighting system.
Optional GPS synchronization is available
if additional SC 370s are required.
The light source for the flashhead is
comprised of LEDs (Light Emitting
Diodes). The LED control circuitry and
drivers are located in the flashhead.
Power Line Communication is utilized as
the communication link between the SC
370 and the flashhead; simplifying
installation and minimizing the number of
conductors required. Installation of FTS
370d systems (L-864/865) requiring L-810
markers is simplified by requiring only
one cable run for both markers and
flashhead. The flashhead may be located
up to 600’ (cable length) from the
controller.
Any SC 370 in the lighting system may be
configured as the control unit which is
referred to as System 1. This unit provides
overall system control including mode
control, synchronization, and alarm
collection and notification. Robust and
highly reliable communication between
multiple SC 370 units is provided by RS485.
SC 370 systems may be ordered
configured for operation by AC or DC
input power. AC systems are not sensitive
to input power phase and have an
operational voltage range of 120-240
VAC, 50/60 Hz with no modification
necessary to the input power module. DC
powered systems are available configured
for 24 or 48 VDC. The DC input voltage
must be specified when ordering.
This manual provides guidance and
recommendations for the installation,
operation, and troubleshooting of the
lighting system. Please read this document
in its entirety before installation.

instructions concerning MKR 370 L-810
marker fixtures are supplied with the marker
kit.
The system installation diagrams
provided in this manual may not contain all
of the required wiring information for
installation at your site.
Important! If
installation
drawings
prepared specifically for your site
disagree with information provided in this
manual, the site installation drawings
should take precedence. Consult any sitespecific installation wiring diagrams
supplied with your equipment.
Flash Technology wiring diagrams define
only
minimum
requirements
recommended for satisfactory equipment
operation. It is the responsibility of the
installer to comply with all applicable
electrical codes.
All communication wiring should have an
insulation rating of 300 volts minimum. All
power wiring should have an insulation
rating of 600 volts. Input power wiring
must be sized to satisfy the load demand of
all connected SC 370 systems. Read the
notes on the installation wiring diagrams
supplied both in this manual and with the
equipment.
Input Power
Input power conductor size depends on the
service voltage, distance from the source
and the number of units installed in the
system. Assume 340 VA per SC 370 in the
FTS 370d/w/r
system. Connect the input power to L1, L2
(AC units) or +, - (DC units) and Ground
terminals of TB1 located in the lower right
of the cabinet.
Important! For proper operation and
optimal protection from Lighting and EMI,
ensure that Earth Ground is wired to the
Ground (Green) Terminal.
Photodiode Wiring
The photodiode must be connected to the SC
370 designated as System 1. The photodiode
connections are located on PCB2 at terminal
block P6. The white wire is connected to the
terminal marked “WHT” and the black wire
is connected to the terminal marked “BLK”.
Only one photodiode is required per system.
It may be located any practical distance
from System 1. The standard photodiode
(Part # 1855512) is supplied with 20’ of
cable. Photodiodes with cable lengths up to
75’ are available. Also, the cable may be
spliced to provide additional length. The
recommended minimum wire gauge is 16
AWG if additional length is necessary.
Photodiode Mounting
The photodiode, also referred to as PHD
512, is shown in Figure 2-1 and mounting

Cellular Antenna
A Cellular antenna (Verizon magnetic
mount or AT&T body mount) is required
with either of the optional cellular modems
shown in Figure 6-1. The supplied antenna
mounting bracket’s top plate accommodates
either the magnetic mount or body mount
style antenna as shown in Figure 2-2.
Figure 2-1 shows the body mount style
antenna installed with the photodiode and
GPS antennas.
The antenna connects
directly to the modem as shown in Figure 224. Follow the method below to install the
antenna.
The system is shipped with the antenna
preinstalled and the antenna cable’s SMA
connector torqued to specification onto the
modem’s antenna connector for optimal
performance; do not remove or disconnect
unless replacing the modem or antenna.
Important! For best communication
performance and to minimize potential for
surge damage to the modem radio
module, it is very important that the
supplied antenna mounting bracket be
used for mounting the antenna and that
the bracket be grounded with a minimum
14 AWG Ground wire connected to the
site Grounding System. Also, if any
excess antenna cable is coiled up, the coil
diameter must not be less than 18 inches.
Maximum torque for the antenna’s SMA
connector must not exceed 8 inch-pounds
(90 N-cm) using a 5/16’” torque wrench.
Damage to the modem may occur if the
connection is over tightened.
Choose a location for mounting the cellular
antenna that will provide optimal reception.
The included mounting bracket can
16
simultaneously accommodate a Vanguard
Photodiode, Cellular Antenna, and GPS
Antenna as shown in Figure 2-1.

System Wiring Diagram Notes (D1 & D2)
1. Input power conductor size depends on the service voltage, the distance from the source,
and number of SC 370 units connected. Assume 340 VA per SC 370. Also see Note 5.
2. Use only Flash Technology PN 4370000 to connect the flashhead to the SC 370. Splicing
of the cable is not permissible on D1 and D2 systems. A 5’ service loop should be placed at
the base of the tower near the controller and just below the flashhead. The cable should be
secured to the structure using the 2/3/4 method. See “Securing The Cable” (this section).
3. Dry contact alarm output contact rating 5 ampere, 250 VAC. Contacts shown in normal
operating state with no alarms or errors.
4. User's alarm circuit not shown.
5. It is recommended that the input power is connected to L1 & L2 of terminal block TB1 on
the SC 370 programmed as System 1. It is also recommended to daisy chain the input power
connection from System 1 TB1 L1 and L2 to System 2 TB1 input and to continue the input
power distribution in this manner between remaining units.
Note: The L1 Fused and L2 Fused terminals of TB1 should not be used to supply power to
other units.
6. Mount the enclosures vertically.
7. The SC 370 enclosure must be grounded to the site grounding system using 2 AWG wire
minimum.
8. Install one or more lightning rods near the uppermost flashhead(s). The copper lightning
rod(s) should extend a minimum of 36” above the height of the flashhead and a minimum of
18” horizontally away from the flashhead.
9. The FH 370(s) must be grounded to tower steel using 8 AWG wire minimum. It is
recommended that all exposed ground connections are coated with a corrosion inhibitor (NOOX or equivalent).
10. The photodiode must be mounted vertically, outdoors facing an unobstructed polar sky.
It must not view direct or reflected artificial light. The photodiode may be mounted at the
top end of a vertical length of rigid conduit or to the optional Antenna Mounting Bracket kit
(P/N 1905355). The photodiode cable may be spliced to provide additional length. The
recommended minimum wire gauge is 16 AWG if additional length is necessary.
11. Mount the GPS antenna outdoors with an unobstructed view of the sky. Antenna
Mounting Bracket kit (P/N 1905355) is recommended for installation of the GPS antenna.

above. Only the menu will be listed for the remaining headings.
Site Tower Config
The Site Tower Configuration menu is
only available on the unit programmed as
System
1.
This
menu
enables
programming of the lighting type, total
quantity of beacons installed, flash rate
and the marker operation as flashing or
steady. Optional GPS synchronization and
delay programming are provided in this
menu as well.
Important!
The
Site
Tower
Configuration must be programmed
to match the FAA designated lighting
system type for the structure.
Marker Mode
Marker mode allows the L-810 markers to
be programmed as steady burning or
flashing. If the flashing option is selected,
56
the markers will flash in synchronization
with the beacon(s).
Red Flash Mode
Red Flash Mode provides two options:
Efficiency and Legacy. Efficiency mode
has a shorter flash duration and uses less
overall energy. Legacy produces a longer
flash duration that resembles the output of
an incandescent lighting system. Both
modes have an output of 2,000 ECD as
required by the FAA.
Efficiency is
recommended
for
most
system
installations. Legacy is recommended if
the lighting system will be required to
synchronize with previous generation
Flash Technology lighting systems on
nearby towers.
Revision 10 – 1/09/2015
FTS 370d/w/r
GPS Sync
GPS Sync allows the FTS 370 system to
wirelessly synchronize with other lighting
systems without regard to distance. GPS
Delay adds the flexibility to synchronize
with lighting systems from other
manufacturers by adding an adjustable
delay (0 - 3000 ms) to the flash output.
generating a photodiode alarm. This
feature is particularly useful in areas that
are prone to periods of light or darkness
that would exceed the 19 hour mode timer.
To activate this feature, select “ON” in the
menu.
Note: The 19 hour mode timer is
intended to provide notification of a
possible failure in the system. The
disarm feature should only be activated
if the system is installed in a location
prone
to
conditions
previously
described. Verify that the photodiode is
installed and functioning correctly
before selecting this option.
Catenary
Catenary lighting systems require three
levels (tiers) of lights.
Therefore, a
minimum of three SC 370 power and
control units and associated flashheads are
required for catenary operation. Catenary
position programming is located in the
Local Tower Configuration menu. At
least one unit must be programmed for
each of the following positions: top,
middle and bottom.
Note: The catenary flash pattern is:
middle - top - bottom.
Dry Contacts
Dry contact monitoring is available
regardless of any additional method
selected to monitor the system.
The
options available in the Dry Contacts
submenu are: Combined and Separate.
Selecting the Combined option allows dry
contact information from subordinate units
to be sent to System 1. The corresponding
dry contact alarm on System 1 will be
activated.
This method is typically
selected when the monitoring system has a
limited number of inputs available.
Selecting the Separate option localizes the
alarm to the affected unit. Each alarm
point in the system can be monitored
individually. This is the preferred method
when using dry contacts to monitor the
system.
Photodiode Alarm Disarm
Photodiode Alarm Disarm inhibits the
system’s 19 hour mode timer from
FTS 370d/w/r
Auxiliary Input
The Auxiliary Input allows an external
device, such as a radar system, to inhibit
the output of the beacon. Control via the
Auxiliary Input is limited to systems
consisting of a single SC 370 power and
control unit. Connections for the Auxiliary
Input are discussed in Section 1 “P2
Auxiliary Input” and shown in Figures 222 – 2-31. A description of each Auxiliary
Input menu option is described in the
following bullet points:
 Help provides a description of the
Auxiliary Input menu.


Control Type sets the type of input for the
external control device. Options in the
Control Type menu are:
Disabled
(external control not activated), Modbus
(See Appendix A) and Dry Contact
(contact closure required to inhibit light
output).
Confirm Output Configuration allows any
alarm contact to be “reassigned” to
indicate that the system is operating
normally while the flash is inhibited.

IR Enable
IR Is Night Alarm
This option allows the system to enable or
disable IR (Infrared) output of IR capable
beacons. Verify that the beacon(s) is an
FH 370d IR before enabling this option.
When set to “Yes”, a detected malfunction
in the IR circuit of the FH 370d IR will be
treated as a night alarm. When set to
“No”, only an “IR Alarm” is generated
and no dry contacts are activated.
Note: IR Enable must be set to “Yes” for IR
operation on FH 370d IR. See Section 1
FH 370d/w/r for additional information
regarding IR.

Local Tower Config
The Local Tower Configuration menu
simplifies system installation by allowing
each SC 370 to discover and bind with its
connected external components.
The
binding process allows the controller to
assign an address to each of the connected
external components without the need to
manually address dipswitches or configure
jumpers. Additional programming options
in this menu include:
AOL beacon
selection, Catenary level selection and L810 marker programming.
Discover Tower
The discovery and binding procedure is
required for systems consisting of two or
more SC 370 units or any GPS enabled
system.
The discovery and binding
procedure is not required, but is highly
recommended for single SC 370 systems.
The procedure must be performed during
initial system installation and when control
components are replaced.
Please
familiarize yourself with the following steps
before performing this procedure.
1. Remove power from the lighting
system at the source.
2. Allow 5 minutes for the output voltage
to completely drain from all SC 370
units. Measure the output voltage on
each SC 370 unit at TB2 DC+ and
DC-. Verify that the voltage is less
than 5V DC before proceeding.
3. Select the SC 370 unit for the binding
procedure. Open fuse holders F1 and
F2 located on TB1 of all other SC 370
units in the system.
4. Restore the source power to the
lighting system. Only the SC 370 unit
selected in the previous step should be
operational.
6. All discovered connected components
will be displayed at the bottom of the
screen. Press Enter to accept. Move
the * to Yes and press Enter two times
to confirm the binding procedure.
7. Repeat the procedure for all remaining
SC 370 units in the system.
Unbind Tower
If an error occurs during the binding
procedure or a control component is
replaced, you must use the Unbind Tower
option to remove the previously assigned
address. Follow the steps in the Unbind
menu option.
The Discover Tower
procedure must be repeated after the
Unbind Tower request is completed.
AOL Beacon
Dual lighting systems require that the
malfunction of any uppermost red beacon
place the entire system in white night
backup. The AOL Beacon option allows
the uppermost beacons to be programmed
to meet this requirement. All SC 370 units
connected to an uppermost beacon must be
programmed as AOL beacon.
Marker Settings
The Marker Settings menu provides access
to program the total number of L-810
markers connected to each SC 370 unit.
Additionally, each marker’s power
consumption can be manually or
automatically sensed and a normal
operating threshold established.
This
feature helps to ensure the system’s
compatibility with future marker designs.
It also simplifies the replacement of
marker fixtures by allowing different
models of Flash Technology approved
markers to be installed in the same system.
5. Select Discover Tower in the Local
Tower Configuration menu and follow
the on-screen instructions.

Events only (cumulative up to 500) are
maintained prior to the “REBOOT
EVENT”.
Configuration
The Configuration menu provides access
to program all functions of the lighting
system except “Control Type” (System 1 –
System 6) which must be programmed
through the user interface of each
connected SC 370. A pictorial of the top
level Configuration menu follows this text.

System “X”
The System “X” Configuration menu is
similar to the “Local Tower Config Menu”
with one exception: the Bind and Unbind
features are only available on single
beacon systems (one SC 370 controller).
Only the bind status will be displayed
when more than one SC 370 is installed.
Catenary Level programming will be
displayed if Catenary is selected in Tower
Lighting menu.
Note: The “Discovery” and “Unbind
Tower” options are available on single
beacon systems only (one SC 370).
See Section 3 “Local Tower Config” for
information regarding “Discover” and
“Unbind Tower”.
Reportable Events Configuration allows
the end user to determine which events are
reported to the monitoring center via Eagle
or SNMP. By default, all reportable
events are configured as “Enabled”. To
disable specific events, select the
“Disable” button located to the right of the
event.
Once all desired events are
selected, press the “Commit Settings”
button near the bottom of the page. State
changes for events that have been disabled
will appear on the web interface with a
gray circle as the indicator. Disabling
reportable events does not impact alarm
dry contacts, Modbus, Event Log, alarm
LED indicators or information displayed
locally by the user interface. Disabling of
alarm events, prior to issuing all required
notifications, is discouraged.
Important!
Flash
Technology
discourages disabling alarms prior to
issuing all required notifications.

Section 5 – Maintenance and Troubleshooting
Safety
Storage
Warning!
Read the warning on Page ii now.
Disconnect primary power before opening
enclosures.
When not in use, equipment should be
stored indoors. Circuit boards (PCB’s),
when not installed in the equipment,
should be kept in antistatic bags or
containers.
Work safely, as follows:
1. Remove rings and watches before
opening the equipment.
RFI Problems
6. Shut off power to the equipment and
disconnect the test equipment.
The presence of radio frequency
interference (RFI) can burn out
components; cause a light to flash
intermittently, at the wrong rate, or at the
wrong intensity. RFI can enter the light by
any wire to or from the unit. The circuits
are designed to reject or bypass RFI, but
Flash Technology cannot guarantee
complete immunity. After installation,
you may find it necessary to add external
filters or use other methods to reduce RFI
entering the equipment.
Preventive Maintenance
Diagnostic Test
2. Shut off power to the equipment and
wait 5 minutes before proceeding.
3. Remove the component or connect the
test instruments.
4. Replace the component.
5. Apply power to the equipment and test
the system.
Carry out the following inspection and
cleaning procedures at least once a year:
1. Verify that moisture has not
accidentally entered the equipment
through gaskets or seals, or collected
inside as condensation.
2. Verify that all drain holes are clear.
3. Check terminal blocks and relays for
corrosion or arcing. Clean or replace
any component that shows evidence of
high-voltage damage.
4. Check all electrical connections for
tightness and verify the absence of
corrosion or electrical arcing.
The SC 370 has built in diagnostic
capabilities to assist in troubleshooting the
system. Flash Technology recommends
that a full system diagnostic test is run
before troubleshooting individual system
components.
Component Testing
Always make resistance measurements
with the primary power turned off.
However, you must make voltage
measurements with power applied. Thus,
for your safety, carry out all preliminary
steps such as connecting test leads or
circuit jumpers or disconnecting existing
circuit connections with the power off.
5. Clean the outside surface of the lens
with liquid detergent and water. Wipe
it gently with a soft cloth or paper
towel.

Appendix A: Vanguard (v3.1) SNMP V2c INFORM TRAPs
Vanguard supports SNMP V2c INFORM TRAPs to notify SNMP managers of field
events. Any INFORM that is not acknowledged within 20 minutes will be resent every 20
minutes until it is acknowledged; up to 24 hours. SNMP TRAPs do not require
acknowledgement. This document describes the default severities for INFORMs. The
severity setting and name for all INFORMs is configurable via the Vanguard web interface or
SNMP sets.
Vanguard SNMP INFORM TRAPs Default Severities
Critical
INFORMs, whose default severity setting is set to Critical, are those which indicate a
NOTAM worthy event. The set of Critical INFORMs would be the minimum set required to
handle to ensure proper monitoring.
See Table A-1 for a list of Critical INFORMs and their descriptions.
Warning
INFORMs, whose default severity setting is set to Warning, are those which indicate
maintenance is needed on a component of the lighting system, but would not necessarily
require a NOTAM. In some situations these INFORMs may be as important as the Critical
events and in others they may not.
See Table A-2 for a list of Warning INFORMs and their descriptions.
Info
INFORMs, whose default severity setting is set to ‘Info’, do not indicate NOTAM worthy
events; although some of them may accompany the Critical INFORMs as additional
diagnostic information.
See Table A-3 for a list of Informational INFORMs and their descriptions.

correctly. A 'SYS COMM' alarm will accompany
the 'BIND ALARM'.
• Two or more controllers are bound to the
same connected equipment (beacon or marker
tier). A 'SYS COMM' alarm will not accompany
the 'BIND ALARM' in this instance. The most
noticeable symptom is a beacon that is not
flashing in 'Sync.' with the rest of the system.
This alarm can be corrected by unbinding then
binding the tower.

Description
System Communication Alarm (SYS COMM):
General communications failure indication.
Any communication failure in the system will
generate a SYS COMM failure on System 1.
The SYS COMM alarm will be accompanied by a
specific communication alarm if the failure is
local to System 1. Absence of a specific
communication failure on System 1 indicates a
communication failure on a subordinate unit
(System 2-6). A communication failure on any
subordinate unit will be accompanied by a SYS
COMM alarm.
Lighting Inspection Test Mode (LI TEST MODE):
Indicates that System 1 is conducting a Lighting
Inspection test on the system.
System Voltage High INFORM:
The tower voltage is higher than normal.
This only applies to the primary lighting system
(System 1).
System Voltage Low INFORM:
The tower voltage is lower than normal.
This only applies to the primary lighting system
(System 1).
Site Mode Override INFORM:
The site tower lighting mode has been
overridden.
Communication Change INFORM:
The System 1 controller has lost or regained
communication with a flash head, marker tier,
or another system controller.
Automatic Update INFORM:
A INFORM which is sent based on a configured
time interval.
Population Change INFORM:
The System 1 Controller has detected a change
in the number of system controllers connected
to it via RS485.
Low Tower Lighting DC Voltage Alarm (LOW
DC):
Output voltage (60 VDC) to the connected flash
head and marker tier
(if present) is low.
Photodiode Mode Change INFORM:
The photodiode mode has changed. This is not
an alarm.

Appendix B: Vanguard Modbus Specification Map (V8).
Modbus RTU over RS485
The Vanguard system master controller (VSMC) is configured to be a Modbus slave device. It is statically configured as
follows:
Station ID
Baud Rate
Data Bits
2
9600
8
Parity
Stop Bits
Flow Control
None
1
None
Modbus RTU over TCP
The Vanguard system master controller is configured to be a Modbus slave device. It is statically configured as Station 2
and host TCP socket # 502. The Modbus RTU over TCP protocol expects messages to be formatted exactly as the Modbus
RTU over RS485 protocol.
Behavior notes:
1. The Vanguard system’s IP address mode can be set to static or dynamic via the ‘MONITORING CONFIG ->
LOCAL ETH CONFIG’ menu on the Vanguard system 1 controller.
2. The Vanguard Modbus RTU over TCP socket #502 will accept incoming connections. However if no data is
transmitted through the socket for 5 minutes it will be terminated.
Behavior during Controller Reboots
The Modbus interface (both via RS485 or Ethernet) is disabled during the Vanguard controller power-up diagnostic
sequence. Modbus messages will not receive a response during this time-period, which lasts 45 seconds for each system
controller. Due to this behavior, it is advised to allow up to 5 minutes for the Vanguard controller to complete its power-up
sequence before normal Modbus operation begins.
Implemented Modbus Map
The following tables detail the data that can be read using Modbus function code 03, and the values that can be written one
register at a time by using Modbus function code 16. Unmapped address space will return the values 65535 or 61166.

Phone (or alternate phone number)
• Product’s Serial Number
• Product’s Model Number or part number
• Service Notification Number (if previously given)
• Reason for call, with a full description of the reported issue
2. The Service Notification number will then serve as a precursor to receiving an RMA number
if it is determined that the product or equipment should be returned. To expedite the RMA
process please provide:
• Return shipping method
• Shipping Address
• Bill to Address
• Any additional information to assist in resolving the issue or problem
3. Product within the Warranty Time Period
a. If to be returned for repair;
• RMA # is generated
• Once product is received and diagnosed;
• Covered under warranty – product is repaired or replaced
• Not covered under warranty – quote is sent to the customer for a bench fee of
$350 plus parts for repair
• If the customer does not want the product repaired, a $50 test fee is
charged before being returned
b. If advance replacement;
• Purchase order may be required before the advance replacement order is created
• RMA # is generated and the advance replacement order is created
• Once product is received and diagnosed;
• Covered under warranty – credit given back if PO received
• Not covered under warranty – credit will not be applied to PO
• Flash Technology has sole discretion in determining warranty claims. Flash
Technology reserves the right to invoice for parts advanced if the associated failed

non-warranty.
Advance replacements will be shipped ground unless the customer provides alternative
shipping methods.
4. Product outside the Warranty Time Period
a. For Xenon System board repair; a purchase order is required at time of request for a RMA #
for a standard $350 repair bench fee
• RMA # is generated with the PO attached
• If the board is deemed non-repairable after diagnosis, the customer is notified. If the
customer purchases a new board, the repair bench fee is waived. If the customer does
not buy a new board, a $50 test fee is charged before being returned or scrapped.
b. For all other products; no purchase order is required to return the product for diagnosis
• RMA # is generated
• Once product is diagnosed, quote is sent to the customer for a bench fee of $350 plus
parts for repair
