Installation & Mounting:
Important! This unit is a safety device, and it must be connected to its own separate, fused power point to assure its continued operation should any other electrical
accessory fail.
Carefully remove the beacon and place it on a flat surface. Examine the unit for transit damage, and locate all parts. If damage is found, or parts are missing, contact
ECCO. Do not use damaged or broken parts.
!
Caution! When drilling into any vehicle surface, make sure that the area is free from any electrical wires, fuel lines, vehicle upholstery, etc. that could be
damaged.
Permanent Mounting:
1. Select the desired location on a flat surface for the beacon to be mounted. The visibility of the flash and ease of wiring access should be taken into consideration in
the selection of the mounting location.
2. Using the base gasket as a template, mark the three mounting hole locations (see Figure 1).
3. Drill the holes using a 7/32” drill size.
4. A fourth hole may be drilled for wire access as shown in Figure 1, or the wires may be routed through the slot in the base for external access.
5. Connect the power wires as shown in the wiring section (see Figure 3).
6. Mount the beacon with #8 hardware.
Pipe Mounting:
The base features female 1” NPT threads for pipe mounting the beacon.

Temporary Mounting, Vacuum-Magnet Mount:
The Vacuum-Magnet Mount feature includes a suction cup on the bottom of the beacon, with a magnet inside of the suction cup, for a secure, temporary mount. The
beacon should be placed in the center of the roof where the least amount of curvature occurs. Before installing, make sure the mounting surface is clean and there
is no debris on the bottom of the beacon or on the roof of the vehicle, which could reduce the holding power of the suction cup and magnet. Place and remove the
beacon without sliding to avoid scratching the paint on the vehicle. After placement, the beacon should adhere firmly to the surface. If the unit slides or moves easily,
a proper installation has not been obtained. To release the vacuum, lift the tab to release the airlock (see Figure 2). To protect the Vacuum-Magnet Mount assembly,
return beacon to the box when not in use. Do not attempt to attach the beacon to an ice-covered surface.
!
WARNING!
Maximum recommended vehicle speed for safe operation using the Vacuum Mount model is 65 mph (104 km/h), when fitted to the center of a vehicle roof
of steel construction. Higher speeds could cause the mount to fail, resulting in the beacon flying off of the vehicle, which could cause damage to other
vehicles, and injury or death to the passengers.

Operator is responsible for ensuring cigarette adapter fits correctly into cigarette/auxiliary outlet used.
For proper operation, verify cigarette/auxiliary outlet circuit is rated to supply a minimum of 10 amps. (See specifications section for rated current in
amperes).
Do not exceed the current rating for the cigarette lighter power outlet recommended by vehicle manufacturer.
Keep cigarette lighter adapter and outlet, clean and free of debris.
Do not use the cigarette lighter adapter when wet.
Insert cigarette lighter adapter fully into the outlet for proper connection.
Grasp cigarette lighter adapter, NOT cord, to remove from outlet.
Remove cigarette lighter adapter completely from outlet when light is not in use.
Note:
Operating the vehicle without the outer lens installed on the product may result in damage that will NOT be covered under warranty.
Important! Disable power before wiring up the beacon.
The wiring for this configuration is as shown in Figure 3 below. All wiring should
be a minimum of 18AWG. The positive line must have a 5 amp fuse, as shown.
A switch may be used to control the on/off function.
Flash Patterns
The 7160 series beacon can be configured to flash the following patterns
(in the order below) by momentarily applying power to the yellow wire as
described in the wiring section. The beacon must be powered through the black
and red wires to allow pattern selection.

Ground. Connect to either the battery negative terminal or
a suitable chassis point.
Power. Switch to +12/24V to operate the flasher. Must
be powered through the fuse, located as close to the battery terminal as possible.
Flash pattern set. Apply +12/24V momentarily
(< 1 sec) to cycle through the available flash patterns (see
table). Holding power on this wire for > 1 sec will select
the previous pattern.
Sync wire. Connect to other blue sync wires of other
7160 beacons to allow synchronizing of flash patterns
(see notes). Connecting the sync wires together does not
alter the flash patterns of any of the beacons – it only controls the relative timing of the flash patterns (see notes).
This wire may also be connected to other compatible
ECCO synchronizing products. If unused, leave unconnected and insulated.
When connected to positive supply, the light output is
dimmed by 50%.

Changing Flash Patterns for Vacuum Mount Beacons: Use momentary switch on cigarette plug.
Notes on Synchronizing and Phase:
Phases A and B for each style of flash pattern in the table denote the relative timing between beacons connected in a synchronizing installation. To operate
simultaneously, each beacon must be set to the same phase (A + A or B + B); to operate alternately, beacons must be set to have the opposite phase (A + B
or B + A).
To simplify the set-up of a synchronized installation, the following process is recommended:
1. Determine the desired style of flash pattern for each beacon and set each unit individually (without the BLUE wires connected together) to avoid confusion. It is also strongly recommended that the same style of flash pattern be used on all units to produce the most effective warning pattern.

3.
Connect the BLUE (SYNC) wires together and check that the units are flashing in a synchronized manner as expected. If a pattern on one module
appears to be wrong, the YELLOW (PATTERN SET) wire can be used to cycle forward or backward on that individual beacon until the correct pattern is
selected. Note: This will only change the pattern in the one beacon and will not affect the other units connected to the BLUE (SYNC) wire.
Synchronizing is not possible with magnet and vacuum mount beacons.
