General Description
The LCS880 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 hand-held 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 buttons that change color to indicate status. The face of the hand-held
controller 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 LCS881 model adds an additional button for full arrow stick
control.
The hand-held controller 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. There
are six push buttons to operate the siren and four push buttons to control four
different lighting or auxiliary functions. The LCS881 also adds an additional button for
control of an arrow stick.
The LCS880 series is designed to allow maximum versatility in mounting. The handheld controller 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 hand-held controller comes with a cradle for mounting.
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.
Siren operating modes include Wail, Yelp, Phaser, 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. Ten 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, and momentary vs. lock-on/lock-off switch operation. 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 LCS880 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 Horn Ring Transfer (HRT)
output function is protected with a 2A in-line fuse. CAUTION: These protection
features will not guard against overloading the outputs.
The LCS880 series is available in the following different versions:
LCS880-008
Standard version with slide switch, full siren controls, and light
controls. Includes a remote hand-held controller with microphone
and a siren amplifier/switch relay box.
LCS881-008
Enhanced version with all the standard controls plus arrow stick
controls. Also includes the arrow stick control box.

Electrical Connections
WIRE SIZE AND TERMINATION
• The wiring diagrams on pages 13 and 17 show the minimum wire size used for
each connection, along with recommended lead color.
• If the wire is longer than 10 ft., use the next larger wire size.
• Use only high quality crimp connectors.
• Make sure all 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 be made directly to the negative of the vehicle
battery. If not possible, connect only to substantial chassis components.
• Install and check all wiring before connection to vehicle battery. SEE TABLE
BELOW 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.

If the unit needs service, both the communication cable and the power connector
can be easily removed without unwiring the connector.
-11-
(Electrical Connections: Siren Amplifier CONT’D)
Siren electrical power connections to
the amplifier are made using a
removable connector located on the
back of the amplifier case.
The power supply to 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 on the next page shows detail of how to wire
the connector on the amplifier to the vehicle.
Make all electrical connections to the power connector before installing the
connector on the unit.
Mandatory Siren Wiring Connections:
BLACK LEADS: (GROUND) - Connect BOTH black wires to the negative of the battery, or
to a good chassis ground. Be sure to use minimum size #14 AWG wire.
RED LEADS:
BROWN LEADS:
PINK LEAD:
(POWER/+12VDC) - Connect BOTH red wires to the positive of the
battery, or to a high current power buss. Be sure to use minimum size
#14 AWG wire.
(SPEAKER) - Connect one lead to each terminal or lead of the speaker.
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.
(IGNITION SWITCHED POWER) - Connect the pink wire to your ignitioncontrolled power (or other switched power source). This will turn the
power to your unit on and off.
Optional Siren Wiring Connections:
BLUE LEADS: (RADIO REPEAT) - Connect one blue lead to each terminal of the twoway radio speaker or output connector of the radio. Use #18 AWG wire.
GREEN LEAD:
(AUX) - Use if you would like to activate the siren’s AIR HORN when the
vehicle horn is pressed. Connect to horn ring circuit or other remote
switch. Circuit may be positive or negative with proper jumper selection.
See Auxiliary Input Polarity section on page 3 for jumper details. NOTE:
Cut lead short if not used & insulate with electrical tape.
Optionally this may be used to mimic the Manual button function when
the vehicle’s horn is pressed. See Auxiliary Control on pages 6-7 for
Control Head jumper setting.
WHITE LEAD:
(PARK-KILL) - Connect to dome light or added door switch. Circuit may
be positive or negative with proper jumper selection. See Park Kill Input
Polarity section (page 4) for jumper details.
NOTE: If not used, cut lead short and insulate with electrical tape.
ORANGE LEAD:
(HORN RING TRANSFER or LOW CURRENT OUTPUT) - You only need to
connect this wire if you will also be connecting the green AUX wire to
your horn ring circuit, thus enabling the driver to control the siren
functions by using the vehicle horn. This output is enabled whenever
the handset is activated with the recessed On/Off switch on the side
and it temporarily deactivates the vehicle’s horn. This allows the use
of the horn ring switch without actually sounding the vehicle’s horn.
Connect the Orange wire to the Horn Ring Transfer Relay as shown the
HRT Wiring Diagram on page 14.
NOTE: If not used, cut lead short and insulate with electrical tape.

RFI REDUCTION AND RFI CHOKE INSTALLATION
The following steps are recommended when installing, to help reduce RFI:
1. 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 amplifier as far away from the police radio 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.
4. Excess communication cable from the control head to the amp should be
tightly bound back near the amplifier box.
5. One of the RFI chokes (STAR P/N: P30039-57) should be placed around the
communications cable at the back of the siren amplifier box.
6. The second RFI choke should be placed around the Red and Black wires exiting
the siren amplifier box.

power to both Left and Right functions
(wires) at the same time.
• 4-Wire Logic Controlled Heads:
Specifically designed for the DL15-30W.
Power wire activates Warn function. Right,
Left, and Center-Out functions controlled by
delivering low current to 3 separate wires (in
addition to Power wire).
Please review the instructions that came with your traffic director and then
reference the corresponding section(s) in this manual for the type of traffic director
that you will be installing.
ARROW STICK OPTION JUMPERS
Included with the LCS881 is the TDC850 arrow stick controller. There are several
jumpers located inside the TDC850 that control different options for traffic directors.
Review the following section to determine if you need to open the case and
change any of the jumper options inside the TDC850.
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.
Arrow Stick Control Mode Setting
The Standard Mode is designed to control traffic directors with independently
switched heads. If you have a 3- or 4-wire controlled arrow stick (as described
above), check the Option Header Location and configure the jumpers as pictured

Phantom Mode
Phantom:
The TDC850 is shipped with the jumper in
the Standard Operation position. In this
mode, the end lights follow the normal
“traffic directing” pattern you select.
Optionally you can select Phantom
Mode:
• In the “Phantom” mode, the end lights are
NOT part of the “traffic directing” patterns.
• Both 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 Other
Options
Standard Operation
Fast Rate Arrow
Low Power Mode
6-Head Arrow w/Flashing Ends
8-Head w/End Arrow
Group 2 Travelling Arrow
Double Blink Last Light (End Blink)
• ALL lights will automatically flash in a “random
flicker” pattern with the slide switch in position
3 (see SLIDE SWITCH on page 23).
To set your control box for Phantom mode, move the 1st jumper in the Option
Header Location back to the pins labeled PHANTOM in the Extra Jumper
Locations.
Jumpers Defaulted In Extra Jumper Location
To change one of these options, move one of the jumpers from the Extra Jumper
Locations over to the corresponding Option Header Location.
Fast Rate Arrow:
This setting increases the flash rate of the arrow stick for high speed or high traffic areas where
viewing time of the arrow is limited. In addition, selecting this option will also change the
“Warn” pattern from an alternating pattern to a random pattern.
Low Power:
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%.
Six Head Arrow †:
Use this option 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.
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.
Group 2 Traveling Arrow (energy saving arrow) †:
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.
Double blink last head of arrow (end blink) †:
The last head to flash in an arrow can be optionally selected to blink twice at the end of the
arrow sequence.
† - These options are disabled when the controller is in PHANTOM mode.

ARROW STICK WIRING
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 applicable terminal screws. This
will open the wire entries. Make the
power wire connections
as described in the section that corresponds to the type of arrow stick you are
connecting. Be 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.
Verify that your corresponding jumper setting shown on page 18 is correct for the
type of arrowstick you are connecting and use the appropriate wiring diagram
below or on the following page. All installations will require the Ground and Power
connections described below.
Ground:
Connect to good chassis ground, or the negative of the vehicle
battery.
Battery +12 VDC: Connect this terminal to the same fused, +12 VDC source that
the pink wire from the amp is connected to (see pages 12-13).
NOTE: This terminal must be connected to the same +12VDC
source as the pink wire in order to prevent inadvertent
momentary activation of one or more of the lights in your
traffic director. 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 high-speed pursuit.
Many light and siren functions are accessible
with one simple motion of the slide switch.
POWER
The unit is turned On and Off by a recessed
switch on the side of the hand held
controller. All functions are disabled until
the unit is switched on.
SLIDE SWITCH
The slide switch is designed for quick pursuit
mode operation. The far left position (OFF) will
not activate any outputs.
Position 1: Activates the first set of lights
(connected to L1).
Position 2: Activates both the 1st and 2nd set
of lights (connected to L1 and L2).
Position 1 & 2: (LCS881 only) If you have the 1st
jumper in the Arrow Stick Light
Controller set for Phantom Mode (see page19), the end lights in
your traffic director will flash in a
high speed “Warn” pattern in both
positions 1 and 2.
Position 3: Generally used for the FULL PURSUIT MODE. It allows for quick
activation of both the lights and the siren in one motion. When the
slide switch is moved to Position 3, the following will activate:
• All three sets of lights (connected to L1, L2, and L3)
• The siren (WAIL mode)
• All of the Traffic Director lights will flash in a “WARN” pattern
(LCS881 only)
Note: The auto-activation of the siren and the arrow stick may be
disabled if desired. (Refer to the Pursuit Disable section on page 5).
PUSH BUTTON SWITCHES
S1, S2, S3, and S4 control the devices connected to the corresponding output
terminals described on pages 16-17. Press once to activate, then press again to
deactivate.
Optionally, S3 can be set to be a momentary switch, S4 can be set as a timed “Gun
Lock” button, or S4 can be set to activate S1, S2, and S3 concurrently (see Control
Head Option Jumpers on pages 6-8).
-23-
(Operation CONT’D)
SIREN MODE BUTTONS:
The six push buttons towards the top 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.
MAN (Manual)
This button is used to temporarily change the siren output. Review the chart below
for a description of the various outputs, depending upon which mode you are in.
MAN BUTTON FUNCTIONS

Two-Tone
No Effect
Creates a manual WAIL tone while button is being held that
sweeps down when the button is released.
HORN (Air 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.
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.
PHSR (Phaser)
Ultra-fast warble one used for maximum attention in highly congested areas.
RADIO
Also known as Radio Repeat, this function amplifies a two-way 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
-24-
(Operation CONT’D)
MICROPHONE and MICROPHONE BUTTON
The integrated noise-canceling microphone is used for public address operation
and overrides any siren tone when the push-to-talk microphone button is pressed.
PA VOLUME
The PA volume control is provided for
public address volume. This is in the bottom
left corner of the control head. Turn it
clockwise to increase the sound level.
ARROW STICK INDICATOR and
PUSH BUTTON SWITCH (LCS881 only)
The WLRCO push button toggles the arrow stick output through a different pattern
with each push. (Warn, Left arrow, Right arrow, Center-Out arrow, and Off).
The LED indicator “simulates” the selected pattern.
SPEAKER DIAGNOSTICS
There are two diagnostic LEDs located in the lower left portion of the remote head
controller. These LEDs will only turn on while a tone is trying to be generated. The
status of the speakers is indicated as follows:
Steady Flashing Off -
Speaker is connected and operating properly.
There is an electrical short in the speaker or wires to the speaker.
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, or
There is over/under voltage.
-25-
(Operation CONT’D)
RADIO REPEAT VOLUME
The radio repeat volume is
located within the rear access
cover of the amplifier. This should
be set during installation when the
vehicle is parked. Under normal
circumstances, you should not
need to adjust it again.
First set the volume level of the vehicle’s two-way radio to its normal operating
volume. Turn on the On/Off switch of the hand held controller and press the RADIO
button. The radio should be rebroadcasting through the siren speaker(s). Using a
small flat blade screwdriver, adjust the potentiometer as desired.
AUXILIARY INPUT (Green Wire)
During installation the vehicle horn ring (or other switching device) can be
connected to the Auxiliary input (AUX/Green wire). Activating the AUX input will
produce the same output as pressing the HORN button.
Optionally, you can program the AUX function so that it mimics the MAN button
rather than the HORN button. (See Control Head Option Jumpers on pages 6-7).
PARK KILL (White Wire)
During installation, the Park Kill input may be connected to a door switch. It will
automatically deactivate any siren tone when the door is opened. The siren tone
will remain off, even when the door is closed, until you change audio modes.
FUSES
The siren amp itself is protected by a 20 amp fuse located next to the power
connector.
Each high current light output is also protected with a 20A automotive blade fuse
located inside the fuse panel. The fuse panel is accessible by loosening the two
screws in the cover plate on the amplifier. Refer to the diagram for proper fuse
location.
The control head is protected
with a 5A automotive blade
fuse located in the amplifier
fuse panel as well.
The HRT is protected
with a 2A in-line fuse.
