GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The LCS800 series is a premium remote system that combines the siren amplifier, the siren controls, and light controls all in one
system. A single slim-line remote control head combines the noise-canceling microphone with a built in siren, as well as many of the
switch and light controls for the vehicle. The control head contains illuminated switches that change color to indicate status. The face
of the control head is sealed around every push button to help prevent liquid from entering the electronics. The amplifier is a 200W
siren amplifier unit designed for single or dual 100W speaker use. The LCS850 model adds full arrow stick controls.
The control head contains several distinct controls for operation of vehicle devices. The slide switch allows quick pursuit mode
operation. The far right slide position can be set up to activate maximum lights and siren for pursuit mode. Five push buttons allow
control of five different lighting or auxiliary functions. Seven additional push buttons allow full siren operation. The LCS850 also
adds control of an arrow stick.
The LCS800 series is designed to allow maximum versatility in mounting. The control head is remote from the siren amplifier and
light relay control box, creating a compact user interface that can be mounted onto the dashboard, overhead, or in the center console.
The amplifier box and arrow stick control box can then be mounted remotely in the trunk, under the dashboard, under the seat, or
wherever convenient. The control head is available with an adjustable “U” bracket or with a flange for recessed mounting.
Siren operating modes include Wail, Yelp, Phaser, Hands Free, and Radio. A Noise Canceling PA Override is available in all modes.
A Manual button allows tone toggle operation and manual siren control. The Air Horn button will override any siren tone. The
vehicle horn switch may also perform the Manual push button function via an auxiliary input. Twelve option jumpers allow the unit
to be fully customized to the operators' needs. Options include: Phaser vs. Two-Tone, Phaser disable, 8 second timed gunlock release,
momentary vs. lock-on/lock-off switch operation, N.O. contact vs. N.C. contact, auto horn ring transfer, and many more. A Park Kill
option is provided for connection to a door switch, etc. to disable the siren when exiting the vehicle. Both a PA volume and a Radio
volume are provided.
The LCS800 series has been designed with several protection features to provide exceptional field service. Excessive high or low
voltage detection will disable the siren output, protecting both the amplifier and the speaker. Fused inputs provide safety against
reverse polarity. Speaker diagnostics provides user feedback as well as shutdown protection against speaker opens and shorts. The
first four light output functions are individually protected with 20A fuses, while the fifth light output function is protected with an
internal 2A thermal fuse. CAUTION: These protection features will not guard against overloading the outputs.
There are currently four different sirens in the LCS800 series:
LCS800 Standard version with slide switch, full siren controls, and light controls. Includes a remote head with
microphone, the siren amplifier, and switch relay box.
LCS800-F Flange mount version of the standard LCS800
LCS850 Enhanced version with all the standard controls plus arrow stick controls. Also includes the arrow stick
control box.
LCS850-F Flange mount version of the standard LCS850

SIREN OPTION JUMPERS
Amplifier Cover Removal
CAUTION: DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN SCREWS!
Remove the four protruding Philip head screws located on the top of the amplifier unit. DO NOT REMOVE THE FOUR
RECESSED SCREWS ON THE UNDERSIDE OF THE AMPLIFIER! Lift the top cover upwards. This cover can be removed
completely from the amplifier unit.
Auxiliary Input Polarity
Applying a positive voltage to the green
wire normally activates the auxiliary
input. To have it activate instead when
the green wire is connected to ground
(negative), move the “AUX” option
jumper from the “Pos. Switching” pins to
the “Neg. Switching” pins in the
amplifier unit. (See Amplifier diagram
to the right). The wiring diagram on
page 9 shows two connection examples.
-3-
Park Kill Input Polarity
The Park Kill (Cutout) Input turns off any
siren tone output when activated, and
remains off until a control is activated or
changed. The wiring diagram on page 9
shows two connection examples.
Connecting the white wire to positive (+12
VDC) normally activates the Park Kill input.
To have it activate instead when the white
wire is connected to ground (negative),
move the “PKILL” option jumper from the
“Pos. Switching” pins to the “Neg.
Switching” pins in the amplifier unit. (See
Amplifie r diagram to the right).
Two -Tone
If desired, the Phaser sound can be replaced
with a Two-Tone sound. This can be done by
removing one of the extra jumpers from the
Extra Jumpers block to the second Option
Jumper (SW) in the amplifier. (See Amplifier
diagram to the left).
Phaser Disable
If desired, the Phaser function can be
completely disabled by removing one of the
extra jumpers from the Extra Jumpers block
to the third Option Jumper (PD) in the
amplifier. This will also disable the manual
button while the siren is in Phaser mode
(which normally would produce a TwoTone sound). (See Amplifier diagram to the
right).
Pursuit Disable (Siren & Arrow Stick)
The farthest right slide switch position (L3) will
normally activate the siren output in the wail
mode (and arrow stick warn pattern for
LCS850), along with all three light functions.
Automatic activation of the siren and arrow
stick can be disabled. If you prefer to NOT
have the siren and arrow stick automatically
activated when the slide switch is moved to
position three, move one of the extra jumpers
from the Extra Jumpers block to the first Option
Jumper (PS) in the amplifier. (See Amplifier
diagram to the left).

Double Blink Last Light (End Blink)
Included with the LCS850 is the TDC850
arrowstick controller.
There are seven jumpers located inside the
TDC850 that control different options.
The TDC850 is shipped with the 1st extra
jumper (labeled PHANTOM ) moved to the 1st
set of pins in the center jumper section
(Standard 8-Head Operation). The remaining
six jumpers will be in the Extra Jumper
Locations (see the diagram to the right).
Extra Jumper Locations
Move Jumper from Standard 8-Head Operation
Location To 1st Pair of Extra Pins For
Phantom Mode
By moving one or more of the jumpers from
the extra header to the option header, alternate
options may be selected.
Phantom –
The TDC850 is shipped with the jumper in the Standard 8-Head Operation position. In the Standard 8-Head
Operation mode, the end lights will follow the normal “traffic directing” pattern you select on the control box.
To switch to Phantom mode, move the 1st jumper in the center section of pins back to the pins labeled
PHANTOM in the Extra Jumper Locations. PHANTOM Mode features:
• In the “Phantom” mode, the end lights are NOT part of the “traffic directing” patterns.
• Both of the end lights will flash back and forth in a high speed “warn” type display any time the slide
switch is in position 1 or 2.
• ALL of the lights will automatically flash in a “random flicker” pattern with the slide switch in
position 3 (see SLIDE SWITCH on page 13).
Fast Rate Arrow –
The flash rate of the arrow stick may be increased during installation for high speed or high traffic areas where
viewing time of the arrow is limited.
Low Power –
Six head arrow –
If the arrow stick is to be used for nighttime operation, or you wish to reduce the power consumption of the
arrow stick, the output can be reduced by 50%.
This option should be used if your arrow stick contains only six heads. In this mode, under all patterns the 1st
& 8th heads will alternate back & forth, operating as rear flashers. (This option is disabled when the controller
is in PHANTOM mode.)
Eight head arrow – Many arrow sticks contain directional arrows on either end (the 1st and 8th heads). The factory preset arrow
pattern will skip the first head in the right and left patterns so as to not confuse the driver with the incorrect
arrow direction. If your arrow stick does not contain directional arrows on the ends and you wish to use all
eight heads in your right and left patterns then set this option jumper. (This option is disabled when the
controller is in PHANTOM mode.)
Group 2 Traveling arrow –
(energy saving arrow)
Double blink last head –
of arrow (end blink)
Optionally selected where energy saving is desired. In this case only two heads will
remain lit during the arrow pattern, traveling across the arrow stick. (This option is disabled when the
controller is in PHANTOM mode.)
The last head to flash in an arrow can be optionally selected to blink twice at the end of
the arrow sequence. (This option is disabled when the controller is in PHANTOM mode.)
Arrow stick Control Box Cover Removal
1.
Remove the four recessed Philip head screws (two on each side of the arrow
stick control box).
2.
Remove the top cover by sliding it towards the front of the unit.
3.
Locate the extra jumper location near the fuses. Also find the “Option”
jumper location near the center of the board. (See diagram above).
Please note:
The TDC850 control box controls 8 light segments. If you are using this siren in
conjunction with a ULB42-TD, the ULB42-TD will have 10 segments. The last
two segments on either end are “tied” together and thus will flash together.

LIGHT CONTROL OPTION JUMPERS
Amplifier Cover Removal
Remove the four Philip head screws recessed in the back of the control head unit.
CAREFULLY remove rear cover, use caution so as not to lift circuit board and
membrane switch away from front faceplate. Locate the 7 jumpers located near the
microphone coil cord strain relief. (See diagram below).
Auxiliary control (Manual vs. Horn) - The green auxiliary wire in the siren amplifier harness is typically connected to the vehicle
horn, and normally provides remote activation of the air horn for all siren modes except Hands Free (HF) mode. In the HF mode,
the auxiliary wire will make the siren step through from Standby to Wail to Yelp to Phaser. The auxiliary wire may be optionally
selected to duplicate the Manual push button instead of the Horn. (See diagram below).
8 second timed gun lock release (S4) - The amplifier is shipped with the fourth push button (S4) as a standard on/off button. It can
be optionally selected to stay activated for only 8 seconds when pressed. (See diagram below).
Momentary replacement of lock-on/lock-off switch operation (S3) - The amplifier is shipped with the third push button (S3) as a
standard lock-on/lock-off switch. It can be changed to momentary operation, thus only being active while being pressed in. (See
diagram below).
Normally open contact replacement of normally closed switch (S3) - The amplifier is shipped with the third push button (S3) as a
normally open contact, which closes when pressed. It can be changed to a normally closed contact that opens when pressed. (See
diagram below).
Activate Hands Free on start-up - If you wish to have the siren automatically activated in Hands Free Mode when the control head
is powered up, you can select this option. (See diagram below).
Activate Horn Ring Transfer on start-up (S5) - If you wish to have the fifth push button (S5) automatically activated when the
control head is powered up, you can select this option. S5 may be connected to the horn ring transfer relay if you wish to turn the
Horn Ring Transfer feature on and off. (See diagram below, also refer to the wiring diagram on page 9).
Audible beep disable - The audible beep heard when the buttons in the control head are pressed can be disabled. (See diagram
below).
S3 Auto Activate – S3 will turn on when the slide switch is in positions L2 & L3 and then will turn off when the switch is moved
back to L1 or off.
The control heads are shipped with the standard features listed below. The seven jumpers are all
installed across both pins when the siren is shipped. By moving the jumpers onto only one pin the
alternate operation may be selected. (S3 Auto Activation is achieved by removing the "Momentary"
and "Normally Closed" jumpers and placing one of them across both of the first pins.)

connections are tight. Route wiring to
prevent wear, overheating and interference
with air bag deployment. Use grommets and
sealant when passing through compartment walls. Minimize the number of splices to reduce voltage drop. Ground connections
should only be made to substantial chassis components, preferably directly to the negative of the vehicle battery. Install and check all
wiring before connection to vehicle battery. SEE TABLE ABOVE FOR CORRECT WIRE SIZING!
All conductors should be constructed of stranded copper with thermoplastic insulation. CAUTION: All wires should be rated
for at least 125% of their maximum current load. All wires connected to the positive terminal of the battery should be
fused at the battery for their rated load. The load can be calculated by adding all lamp wattages and dividing by 13. Load
(Amps) = Total Watts / 13 volts. Do not use 1/4" diameter glass fuses, as they are not suitable for continuous duty above 20
amps.
SIREN AMPLIFIER
Siren electrical power connections to the amplifier are made using a
removable connector located on the back of the amplifier case.
Communication between the control head and the amplifier are made via a
communications cable with an RJ11 jack. CAUTION: Please note that this
cable IS NOT a standard telephone cord and CANNOT be replaced with
one. You should make all electrical connections to the power connector
before installing the connector on the unit. If the unit needs service, both the
communication cable and the power connector can be easily removed without
unwiring the connector.
-8-
(SIREN AMPLIFIER (cont’d)
The power supply of the siren unit must be capable of delivering peak currents up to 50 amps for adequate short circuit protection and
reliable operation. The preferred source is directly at the vehicle battery. The unit is internally fused. The wiring diagram below
shows detail of how to wire the power connector on the amplifier to the vehicle. The communication cable should have one end
plugged into the amplifier (telephone style jack) and the other end plugged into the control head.
Siren Wiring Connections:
BLACK LEADS: You MUST connect BOTH black wires when using two 100W driver speakers. Connect to the negative of the
battery, or to a good chassis ground. Be sure to use minimum size #14 AWG wire.
RED LEADS: You MUST connect BOTH red wires when using two 100W driver speakers. Connect to the positive of the
battery, or to a high current power buss. A power relay may also be used. Be sure to use minimum size #14
AWG wire.
BROWN LEADS: Connect one lead to each terminal or lead of the speaker. Be sure to use minimum size #14 AWG wire. If
connecting a second speaker in parallel, you must observe the polarity of the speakers (phasing). Be sure
that the positive terminals of both speakers are connected together to the same brown wire from the siren.
In which case, the negative terminals of both speakers would also be connected together to the other brown wire.
PINK LEAD: Connect the pink wire to you ignition-controlled power (or other switched power source). This will turn the
power to your unit on and off.
Siren Optional Connections:
BLUE LEADS: Use for radio repeat. Connect one blue lead to each terminal of the radio speaker or output connector of the radio.
Most radio outputs are isolated, in which polarity would not be important. Radios with polarity sensitive outputs
should be connected w/ the blue wire from pin 6 to the positive radio output, and blue wire from pin 3 to the
negative radio output. Use #18 AWG wire.
GREEN LEAD: Use for remote (Aux.) Manual control. Connect to horn ring circuit or remote switch. Circuit may be positive or
negative with proper jumper selection. See INSTALLER-SELECTABLE OPTION section (page 3) for jumper
details. NOTE: Cut lead short if not used & insulate with electrical tape.
WHITE LEAD: Used for Park Kill (Cut-off). Connect to dome light or added door switch. Circuit may be positive or negative
with proper jumper selection. See INSTALLER-SELECTABLE OPTION section (page 4) for jumper details.
NOTE: Be sure to cut lead short if not used and insulate with electrical tape.
ORANGE LEAD: Used for Horn Ring Transfer Relay, or other low current output. Connect Horn Ring Transfer Relay, gun lock,
or other low current device (Maximum 2A) to the orange wire in the wiring harness. This output may also be
used to drive an external relay when higher current is required. NOTE: Cut lead short if not used & insulate
with electrical tape.

RFI REDUCTION
The following steps are recommended when
installing, to help reduce RFI:
1.
ANTENNA LEAD
Make sure that both the control head and
amp are securely attached to good chassis
ground (i.e. no paint in-between the chassis
and the grounding terminal).
2.
Keep the siren control head and the police
radio as far away from one another as is
practical.
3.
Check that the police radio antenna wire
makes a right angle from the back of the
police radio and runs on one side of the
vehicle. The communications cable for the
siren should make a right angle out of the
back of the control head and exit in the
opposite direction from both the police
radio antenna wire and the police radio
power wires.

Light Wiring Connections:
(REFER TO LIGHT WIRE DIAGRAM ON NEXT PAGE, AS WELL AS TO WIRE SIZE TABLE ON PAGE 9 FOR PROPER WIRE SIZES!)
The electrical connections for input power, for slide switch outputs, and for the push button light functions are coupled to the
relay control box (amplifier) using terminal blocks.
+12 VDC Input: Input power to be terminated into the 3 large barrier style terminal blocks. When controlling lights with a large
amount of current (>15A) power should be supplied to all three inputs.
L1, L2, L3 (Center Terminal Block): Connect lights to L1 (20A max.) that you wish to activate in the first slide switch position.
Connect lights to L2 (20A max) that you wish to activate in the second slide switch position. (Note: the second slide switch
position activates both L1 and L2). Connect lights to L3 (20A max.) that you wish to turn on in the third slide position. (Note:
the third slide switch position activates L1, L2 and L3).
S1, S2, S3, S4 (Right Terminal Block): Connect lights to S1 (20A max.) that you wish to activate with the far left push button (L.
Alley). Connect lights to S2 (20A max.) that you wish to activate with the second push button from the left (R. Alley). Connect
lights to S3 (20A max.) that you wish to activate with the third push button from the left (Takedown). Connect lights to S4 of
right side terminal block (20A max.) that you wish to activate with the fourth push button from the left (Auxiliary).
The fifth push button light switch (S5) is a low current (2A or less) output switch. It has an internal self-resetting 2A fuse. Connect
low current device to the orange wire in the wiring harness. Typically the horn ring transfer relay is connected to this switch. This
output may also be used to drive an external relay when higher current is required.
Note: S5 is wired through the siren wiring harness. See page 9.

Testing - Test all siren functions after installation to assure proper operation.
Test vehicle operation to assure no damage to vehicle.
Label Insertion
Once the wire connections have been made to S1 through S4, labels can be inserted into
the switches. The product is shipped with 30 different labels for these push buttons.
Select the desired label inserts (provided). Insert the label into each button and tuck it
under the lip of the switch.
The siren labels come pre-installed and may be used for reference when inserting light
function labels

Arrow Stick Wiring Connections (LCS850 & LCS850-F ONLY)
The arrow stick control box comes with a
removable green terminal block connector
(Power Connector). Remove the terminal
block from control box and loosen all 12
terminal screws. This will open the wire
entries. Make the power wire connections as
shown on next page, being sure to tighten
down each screw once the appropriate wire is
inserted. After all power connections are
complete, insert the terminal block into the
mating receptacle in the back of the control
box. Tighten the two terminal block locking
screws on either end of the block to prevent it
from vibrating loose.

inadvertent momentary activation of one or more of the lights in your traffic director. The lamp brightness will be
somewhat diminished if a large voltage drop exists between the vehicle's battery and the controller. If voltage drop
is a problem, use a relay to control a direct battery feed. A generic relay designed for automotive lamp service
should be available from most automotive stores for this purpose. If using a relay, don't forget to fuse the feed and
signal wires at their source, with appropriate values. For non-LED arrow sticks, use 12 AWG wire for all power
and ground connections.

OPERATION
GENERAL
This unit is designed for easy operation under the stress associated with highspeed pursuit. Most light and siren functions are accessible with one simple
motion of the slide switch.
LIGHT SLIDE SWITCH
The slide switch is designed for quick pursuit mode operation. The far left
position (OFF) will not activate any outputs.
• Position 1 will activate the first set of lights (connected to L1).
•
Position 2 activates both the 1st and second set of lights (connected
to L1 and L2).
•
Position 1 & 2: If you have the 1st jumper in the Arrow Stick Light Controller (for LCS850 only) set for Phantom mode, the
end lights in your traffic director will flash in a high speed “warn” pattern in both positions 1 and 2.
•
Position 3 is generally used for the FULL PURSUIT MODE . It allows for a quick procedure that will activate both the
lights and the siren in one motion.
When the slide switch is moved to Position 3, the following will activate:
Ø All three sets of lights (Connected to L1, L2 and L3 - Each output is protected with a 20A fuse)
Ø The siren (Wail mode)
Ø All of the Traffic Director lights will flash in a random flicker flash pattern (see page 5).
•
Position 3: The siren and the arrow stick may be disabled in the pursuit mode during installation if desired. (Refer to the
INSTALLER SELECTABLE OPTIONS section on page 3).
LIGHT PUSH BUTTON SWITCHES
Five push button switches are provided to enable five separate functions. The far left push button (possibly L. Alley) will control the
item(s) connected to S1. The second push button (possibly R. Alley) will control the item(s) connected to S2. The third push button
(possibly Takedown) will control the item(s) connected to S3. The fourth push button will control the item(s) connected to S4
(possibly gun lock). Each of these four outputs is protected with a 20A fuse. The fifth push button will control a relay or other low
current (2A or less) device connected to the orange wire of the siren harness. This button may be connected to the horn ring transfer
relay if you desire to switch that feature on and off. It may also be connected to an external relay for activating a high current device.
SIREN OPERATION:
The seven push buttons across the middle of the control
head allow full siren operation. When not activated,
these buttons are backlit in green for nighttime viewing.
When activated, an audible beep is heard, and the
backlighting turns red.
Manual (MAN): In the Hands Free Mode, this momentary push button switch provides a manually activated Wail siren tone
while being pressed. With the Wail, Yelp, or Phaser mode selected, this switch provides a generally
quicker changing tone (see tables on next page). These quicker tones are used to momentarily alert
motorists at intersections and very highly congested areas. Pressing the button once changes to the next
faster tone. Pressing the manual button again, reverts the siren back to the original tone.
Optional configuration allows the replacement of the Phaser tone with Two-Tone, or the disabling the Phaser
tone entirely. These options are selected during installation and may be governed by State or Local laws.
(Refer to the INSTALLER SELECTABLE OPTIONS section on page 4).
Air Horn (HORN): This momentary push button switch provides a simulated air-horn tone while pressed. This can be used to
either replace, or to supplement the normal vehicle horn and is useful at intersections or in high noise areas.
This tone will override all other siren tones.
Hands Free (HF): Also known as Horn Ring Cycler, allows the user to cycle through Wail, Yelp, Phaser, and Standby by
repeatedly pressing the horn or other switch connected to the AUX input. Operating any other mode resumes
normal operation. Please note that this mode disables the Manual (MAN) push button selection when a Wail,
Yelp, or Phaser tone is cycled to.
WAIL: A normal rise-fall tone used on highways and areas with low traffic or constant traffic flow.
YELP:
A rapid warble tone used in light to moderately congested areas.
Phaser (PHSR): Ultra -fast warble one used for maximum attention in highly congested areas.
:
RADIO: Also known as Radio Repeat, this function amplifies a radio speaker input for re-broadcast outside the
vehicle through the siren speaker(s). PA is available, but no siren tones are available in this position.

ARROW STICK PUSH BUTTON SWITCHES (LCS850 & LCS850-F only)
The LRCO push button toggles the arrow output through a different pattern with
each push. (Left arrow, Right arrow, Center out arrow, and Off). The Warn button
will override the LRCO button, and immediately produces a warning pattern on the
arrow stick. The eight LED’s in between the two buttons provide real time user
feedback as to the output of the arrow stick.
RADIO REPEAT VOLUME
The radio repeat volume is located within the rear access cover of the
amplifier. This should be set when the vehicle is parked. First set
the volume level of the vehicle’s two-way radio to its normal
operating volume. Press the RADIO button of siren controls. Using
a small flat blade screwdriver, adjust the potentiometer as desired.
PA VOLUME
The PA volume control is provided for public address volume. This is in
the bottom left corner of the control head. Insert a small, flat blade
screwdriver into the PA volume adjustment port. Turn counter-clockwise
direction to increase the sound level.
MICROPHONE
The integrated noise-canceling microphone is used for public address operation and overrides any siren
tone when its push-to-talk (button on the side) is pressed.
AUXILIARY INPUT
During installation an auxiliary input may be connected to the vehicle horn ring or other switching device. It provides the same
operation as pressing the Horn button. NOTE: This may be changed to provide the same operation as the Manual button
instead of the Horn button. (See INSTALLER-SELECTABLE OPTIONS on pages 3 and 4.)
-14-
PARK KILL (CUTOUT)
During installation, the Park Kill input may be connected to a door switch. It will automatically turn off any siren tone when
the door is opened. The siren tone will continue to be cut off even when the door is closed. Changing any switch or input will
restore normal function.
SPEAKER DIAGNOSTICS
There are two diagnostic LED’s located in the lower left portion of the remote head controller. These LED’s will only turn on
while a tone is trying to be generated. The status of the speakers is indicated as follows:
Steady - Speaker is connected and operating properly.
Flashing - There is an electrical short in the speaker or wires to the speaker.
Off - No speaker is connected, or
- The siren is not activated to output a tone to the speaker, or
- The speaker or wire connection is loose or is electrically open
