INSTALLATION AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
FOR
MICRO-ESCAPE™ LED LIGHTBARS
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.
•
You should frequently inspect the light
system to ensure that it is operating
properly and that it is securely attached to the vehicle.
•
This product contains high output
LED devices. To prevent permanent
eye damage, do not stare into the light
beam at close range.
•
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.
I.
UNPACKING.
After unpacking the Escape 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.
II. INSTALLATION.
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 are contained in the cable.
The basic light functions of the unit are controlled
by a flasher inside the lightbar. See table 1.
Before proceeding, ensure that the lightbar has been
installed on the vehicle roof properly.
Light system controls must be located so
that VEHICLE and CONTROLS can be operated safely under all driving conditions.
Reverse polarity may damage the LED lights
and prevent operation. Ensure that correct polarity is observed.
NOTE
The lightbar functions can be activated by applying 12VDC to the appropriate control line.

Functions
Power: +12V activates the primary mode.
Ground (-): Connect to a good battery/chassis
ground.
Program: Applying ground (-) will increment
the lightbar to the next pattern.
Mode (Pattern Select): Applying +12V changes
the lightbar's pattern to the pattern selected
for the secondary mode. Only active if the
lightbar is normally flashing in primary
mode.
Power: +12V activates the smart head with
"built-in" flasher.
Not used.
Not used.
III. TESTING.
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.
This product contains high output LED devices. To prevent permanent eye damage,
do not stare into the light beam at close
range.
After installation, check the entire system to ensure
the lights are functioning properly and siren/light system functions are operating properly.
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.
IV. BASIC MAINTENANCE.
Copyright 2008 Federal Signal Corporation
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.
Disconnect ALL power to the lightbar before any maintenance is performed.
