SAFETY MESSAGE TO INSTALLERS
OF
FEDERAL SIGNAL LIGHT SYSTEMS
People’s lives depend on your safe installation of our products.
It is important to read, understand and follow all instructions
shipped with the products. In addition, listed below are some other
important safety instructions and precautions you should follow:
•
To properly install a light assembly: you must have a
good understanding of automotive electrical
procedures and systems, along with proficiency in
the installation and use of safety warning equipment.
•
When drilling into a vehicle structure, be sure that
both sides of the surface are clear of anything that
could be damaged.
•
A light system is a high current device. In order for
it to function properly, a separate ground connection
must be made. If practical, it should be connected to
the negative battery terminal. At a minimum, it may
be attached to a solid metal body or chassis part that
will provide an effective ground path as long as the
light system is to be used.
•
Locate light system controls so the VEHICLE and
CONTROLS can be operated safely under all driving
conditions.
•
are contained in the cable.
The basic light functions of the unit must be controlled
by a user-supplied control head.
Before proceeding, ensure that the lightbar has been
installed on the vehicle roof in accordance with the instructions
packed with the mounting kit. Route the lightbar cable as
described below.
WARNING
Light system controls must be located so that VEHICLE
and CONTROLS can be operated safely under all driving
conditions.
1. Route the control cable into the vehicle and under
the dash, near the eventual location of the user-supplied control
head.
2. For proper light operation, the control cable must be
properly terminated inside the user-supplied control head. Using
the appropriate wiring diagram (figures 1 through 7) as a guide,
make the appropriate electrical connections shown in Tables 1 and
2. Ensure that the lines are adequately fused as shown in the
appropriate figure.
CAUTION
Reverse polarity may damage the power supply and
prevent operation. Ensure that correct polarity is
observed.
You should frequently inspect the light system to
ensure that it is operating properly and that it is
securely attached to the vehicle.
3.
Connect the black lead to chassis ground.
NOTE
•
File these instructions in a safe place and refer to
them when maintaining and/or reinstalling the
product.
Failure to follow all safety precautions and instructions may
result in property damage, serious injury, or death to you or others.
Most of the lightbar functions can be activated by
applying 12VDC to the appropriate control line. The
heavy black lead (-) must be connected to vehicle ground,
to perform a function check.
B.
I.
GENERAL.
The Federal JetStrobe™ Plus Lightbar is the most aerodynamic strobe bar available today. It utilizes the latest in solid-state
electronics and strobe technology. The highly effective quadruple
flash pattern is produced by powerful, highly efficient, and reliable
power supplies. The ten head models feature an innovative no-dark
action pattern. All models incorporate a low intensity double flash
mode which reduces power consumption by 60%.
II.
NOTE
The four insert clips and four #4 screws contained in the
packing carton will be used in the following steps.
1. See figure 8. Position two insert clips on the side
facing reflector/flash tube assembly and press the clips until they
slide into position.
UNPACKING.
After unpacking the JetStrobe lightbar, inspect it for damage
that may have occurred in transit. If the unit has been damaged,
file a claim immediately with the carrier, stating the extent of
damage. Carefully check all envelopes, shipping labels and tags
before removing or destroying them.
III.
Side Facing Strobe Insert (JSFEI) Installation for Six,
Eight, and Ten Head Models.
INSTALLATION.
A.
General.
The lightbar is completely wired at the factory and does
not require any additional internal wiring. All the conductors
necessary for control of any and all basic and optional functions
2. Position the separately purchased insert as shown
in figure 8. Align the holes in the insert with the holes in the clips
and secure with two #4 screws.
3. Repeat the above steps for the other side facing
reflector/flash tube assembly.
C.
Function Activation.
1.
Standard (Quadruple Flashing) Mode.
The standard mode in four head, six head, and eight
head models is activated by applying 12VDC to the control cable’s
heavy red wire. Activate the standard mode in ten head models by

BASIC MAINTENANCE.
WARNING
Front cutoff in six and eight head models is
activated by applying 12VDC to the control cable’s red/white wire.
High voltages are present inside the lightbar. Wait at
least ten (10) minutes, after shutting off power, before
servicing this unit. Failure to do so may result in
property damage, serious injury, or death to you or
others.
Front cutoff in the ten head model is accomplished
by disconnecting the 12VDC to the control cable’s red/white wire.
Standard or action front cutoff modes are obtained depending on
the voltage applied to the control cable’s blue wire.

Crazing (cracking) of domes will cause reduced effectiveness of light system. Do not use cleaning agents (which
will cause crazing) such as strong detergents, solvents, or
petroleum products. If crazing of domes does occur,
reliability of light for emergency warning purposes may
be reduced until domes are replaced.
Ordinary cleaning of the plastic domes can be accomplished by using mild soap and a soft rag. Should fine scratches or
a haze appear on the domes, they can ordinarily be removed with a
non-abrasive, high quality automotive paste wax.
