INSTALLATION
1. First, install the Strobe Power Supply in a protected location using the power supply itself as a template. THE POWER
SUPPLY MUST BE MOUNTED TO A METAL SURFACE.
Make sure all connectors are easily accessible.
2. Install the strobe light heads in the preferred locations.
3. String the 3 Wire Strobe Cable between each individual
light and the power supply. Make sure the cable is secure
along the chosen routing inside the vehicle to prevent it from
damage by chafing or binding. Be sure to keep the cable
away from engine hot spots.
WARNING
Strobe tube cables with 500V insulation resistance
must be used. Automotive cable is not suitable and
should not be used.
4. Insert the pins on each end of the cables into the connectors. Each end of these cables has a factory crimped pin on
each of the three wires, see Figure A.
NOTE
When routing the cable, make sure the end with the
closed tip terminals (male pins) is toward the power
supply and the end with the open tip terminals (female
pins) is toward the light head.
NOTE
It is important to follow the correct color code when
inserting the pins into the connectors.
5. Connect the cables to the strobe light heads.
6. Next, plug the other end of the cable into the Light Head
Output Socket on the Strobe Power Supply.
7. Using Figure E, select a flash pattern and determine which
flash control wires will need to be used. The grey wire controls the day/night (high/low) intensity feature of the power
supply, see Figure C. The high/low intensity feature allows
the strobe lights to be switched into low power or reduced
intensity. This feature is useful for night time use. When the
grey wire is powered, the power supply is switched to low
intensity. When the power is removed, the power supply
switches to high intensity mode. Use 18 gauge wire to extend the flash control wires to a customer supplied switch as
shown in Figures B, C and D.
MALE AMP CONNECTOR
(to be mated with the AMP output
socket on the Power Supply)
Insert wires with male pins into
the proper locations in the male
AMP connector:
RED WIRE - HOLE #1
BLACK WIRE - HOLE #2
WHITE WIRE - HOLE #3
FEMALE AMP CONNECTOR
Insert wires with female pins into
the proper locations in the female
AMP connector:
RED WIRE - HOLE #1
BLACK WIRE - HOLE #2
WHITE WIRE - HOLE #3
Figures B, C and D show some of the standard switch control
options that can be easily wired to complete a Strobe Light
System.
Figure B shows a high/off control system that quad flashes
all heads.
Figure C shows a high/low control system that quad flashes
all heads.
Figure D shows how any flash option could be installed depending on which flash control wire(s) are attached to the
switch.

8. Connect the red wire to the positive (+) side of the battery
making sure to place a customer supplied 15 Amp fuse at the
battery. Connect the black wire to the negative (-) side of the
battery or to vehicle chassis.
NOTE
To extend the power (+) and ground (-) wires, use the
following as a guide.
1 to 10 ft. use 16 AWG wire
10 to 20 ft. use 14 AWG wire
20 to 30 ft. use 12 AWG wire
30 to 50 ft. use 10 AWG wire

To Reduce EMI emissions, ONE end of the shield (drain wire)
of the extension cable connecting the output of the power
supply to the Lighthead should be connected to ground. Make
sure ONLY ONE END of the shield is tied to ground. The
other end needs to be taped or cut.

INSTALLATION:
Plug the RJ11 end of the cable into the Diagnostic Display.
Route the other end of the cable to the Power Supply and
connect the 4-pin Amp Connector.
OPERATION:
Each numbered LED will flash with the corresponding
numbered Strobe Tube showing everything is operational. If
an LED light stay ON, instead of flashing, there is a problem
with that particular Strobe Tube or Strobe Cable. Low
Intensity LED will indicate when the Power Supply is low
power.
To Reduce EMI emissions, ONE end of the shield (drain wire)
of the extension cable connecting the output of the power
supply to the Lighthead should be connected to ground.
Make sure ONLY ONE END of the shield is tied to ground.
The other end needs to be taped or cut.
Consult the vehicle manufacturer before
installing this or any other aftermarket device to
determine its proper mounting location.
Failure to consult and follow the vehicle
manufacturer’s mounting recommendations
may result in serious personal injury or death.
