Notice: This UPS69024 strobe power supply, like all
WHELEN components, can be installed in many different
types of vehicles. The guidelines for the installation of this
product are written so that no matter what vehicle is being
used, the installation and operation of the UPS69024 will be
simple and straight forward.
2.
Remove the UPS69024 from its mounting area and, using
a drill bit sized for a #10 sheet metal screw, drill a hole in
each of the areas scribed in the previous step.
3.
Return the UPS69024 to its mounting location and using
the supplied #10 sheet metal screws, mount onto its
mounting surface.
Selecting a Mounting Location:
Wiring your UPS69024:
The most common choice for a mounting area would be a
trunk or similar compartment. However, due to the wide
variety of vehicles onto which the UPS69024 could be
installed, this is not always possible. The following guidelines will help the installer select an acceptable alternative:
1.
WARNING: All customer supplied wires, that connect to the
positive (+) terminal of the battery, must be sized to supply at
least 125% of the maximum operating current, and fused “at the
battery” to carry the load.
A) The UPS69024 should be mounted on a metal surface
to aid heat dissipation. Be sure that this surface is not
one that either generates or is exposed to excessive
heat during normal operation of the vehicle.
2.
B) Do not select a location where the UPS69024 will be
exposed to potential damage from any unsecured or
loose equipment in the vehicle.
D) When routing the UPS69024’s wires, it is important to
choose a path that will keep these wires away from
excessive heat and from any vehicle equipment that
could compromise the integrity of the wires (ex. trunk
lids, door jams, etc.).
WARNING: The Strobe Light Power Supply is a high voltage
device. Do not touch or remove tube assembly in strobe
light head assemblies while in operation. Wait 10 minutes
after disconnecting the unit from its power source before
starting work or troubleshooting on power supply or system.
Connect the BLACK wire to the factory chassis ground
adjacent to the battery.
4.
Refer to Fig. 2 for wiring information for the remaining
Switch Control Wires and Pattern Control Wires.
5.
As indicated in Fig. 2, there is a provision in the Input
Connector for a wire (VIOLET) to activate Hi Power/Low
Power strobe operation. If this feature is desired, locate the
VIOLET wire included with your power supply and, with the
Input Connector disconnected from the power supply,
insert the pinned end of the VIOLET wire into position 4 of
the Input Connector. Refer to the Wiring Diagram on page
3 for wiring information.
Configuring your UPS69024:
Caution: As it will be necessary to drill holes into the mounting surface, the installer MUST be sure that no vehicle components or other vital parts could be damaged by the drilling
process. Check both sides of the mounting surface before
drilling begins.
1.
3.
When the best mounting location has been determined,
securely fasten the UPS69024 to it’s mounting surface
using the supplied hardware.
Mounting your UPS69024:
Position the UPS69024 in its proposed mounting location to ensure that it fits properly. With the UPS69024 in
place, insert an awl or other suitable tool into the
mounting screw area of the power supply and scribe the
areas that are to be drilled.
Connect the RED wire to a fuse block (customer supplied)
and then to the POSITIVE terminal on the battery.
NOTE: Although a 7.5 amp fuse (customer supplied) is required
to be used in the fuse block, do not install the fuse until all of the
wire connections are completed.
C) Be sure the area selected will not allow the UPS69024
to be exposed to water.
E)
Locate the 10 position Input Connector included with your
UPS69024 and plug it into the port indicated in Fig. 1.
Extend the BLACK and RED wires from the Input Connector towards the battery.
Although the wiring diagram illustrates the proper switch connections for the UPS69024, an explanation of how the switches
are configured is necessary. It is also necessary to understand
how the dip switch positions will impact the operation of the
UPS69024. The following section will explain switch functionality in the DEFAULT configuration (all dip switches in the OFF
position and all strobe switches wired as illustrated).
Strobe Switches:
Switch #1 (SW1) - In the default configuration, switch 1 controls
outlets 1 & 2. The control wire for switch 1 is the BLUE wire.
Switch #2 (SW2) - In the default configuration, switch 2 controls
outlets 3 & 4. The control wire for switch 2 is the GREEN wire.

Switch #3 (SW3) - In the default configuration, switch 3 controls outlets 5 & 6. The control wire for switch 3 is the YELLOW wire.
Flash Patterns:
Dip Switches:
Comet Flash - A burst of 4 strobe flashes.
Dip Switch #1 (Progressive Outlet Control)-
Double Flash - A burst of 2 strobe flashes.
OFF (Default position) - In this position, the strobe switches
are configured as indicated in the “Strobe Switches” section
above.
Rapid Random - A pattern of strobe flashes at a rate of 240
RRFPM (Rapid Random Flash Per Minute).
The UPS69024 can produce a variety of different flash
patterns. They include:
Action - A mix of three Comet Flash bursts, followed by 6 Rapid
Random flashes.
for Example:
Modu-Flash - With this pattern, impulse rate and energy are
modulated to produce a sweeping (rising and falling) effect. In
one full cycle, the impulse rate and energy change inversely
from 150 fpm to 400 fpm and back to 150 fpm.]
SW1 = Enables outlets 1 & 2
SW2 = Enables outlets 3 & 4
SW3 = Enables outlets 5 & 6
ON - In this position, Progressive Outlet Control is enabled.
Micro-Burst II - Two, consecutive, Double Flash bursts.
for Example:
SW1 = Enables outlets 1 & 2
SW2 = Enables outlets 1, 2, 3 & 4
SW3 = Enables outlets 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
&6

IMPORTANT: In order for the Traffic Advisor patterns to flash
properly, it is necessary for the lamps to be connected to the
UPS69024 in the following pattern:
OFF (Default position) - In this position, the strobe switches are configured as follows

for Example:
SW1 = Outlets 1 & 2 alternate flashing

The Traffic Advisor (or T/A) mode is comprised of 4, traffic control-oriented flash patterns:
ON - In this position, Simultaneous Outlet Control is
enabled.
for Example:
SW1 = Outlets 1 & 3 flash simultaneously
SW2 = Outlets 2 & 4 flash simultaneously
SW3 = Outlets 5 & 6 alternate flashing (no change)

Dip Switch #3 (Hi/Lo Control)OFF (Default position) - In this position, when the Hi/Low
switch is activated, the power supply “latches” into Lo power
operation. To restore normal, Hi power operation, it is necessary to turn the power supply off and then on again. In this
configuration, a momentary switch is recommended for Hi/
Lo activation.
ON - In this position, Hi/Lo power operation is “toggled”
between Hi and Lo and it is no longer necessary to turn the
power supply off to restore Hi power operation. In this configuration, a toggle switch (non-momentary) is recommended for Hi/Lo power selection.
Dip Switch #4 - This dip switch has no function and should
be left in its default, OFF position.
