4. Flashing Outputs: The system shall be able to flash any output in either A or B phase, and logic is used to shut down needed outputs in park, or any one of several combined interlocks. The flash rate can be selected at either 80, 160 or

200 FPM. This means any light can be specified with a multiplex truck with no need to add flashers. Flashing outputs can also be used to warn of problems or other unique idea you may come up with.

5. PWM: The modules shall have the ability to PWM at some outputs so that a headlight PWM module is not needed.

6. Diagnostics: An output should be able to detect either a short or open circuit. The system should be able report in “real time” a text based message that points the maintenance person to a specific output.

Inputs:

1. The inputs shall have the ability to switch by a ground or vbatt signal.

2. The inputs shall be filtered for noise suppression via hardware and software so that RF or dirty power will not trick an input into changing its status.

Auto-Throttle:
