GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The SC-411HS Remote Light Control/Siren is a premium unit designed for one or two 100W speaker use. The
primary operating modes are Radio, Cycler, Standby, Yelp, Wail, and Phaser. A Noise Canceling PA Override
and push-button Horn Override are available in all modes except Radio. A push-button is provided for toggling
between Wail, Yelp, and Phaser tones, and Manual siren control in silent modes. The Phaser tone can be
optionally replaced by Two-Tone or disabled entirely. Auxiliary inputs are provided for connection to horn ring
circuit or switch. A latching siren cutout input is provided for connection to a door switch, etc. to stop siren tones
when exiting the vehicle. PA volume is programmable on the handheld controller while Radio volume control is
on the amplifier. The front panel is backlit with LED's for night visibility, dimmable with a front panel button and/
or connection to dash lights. The siren circuits utilize short circuit, high voltage, and reverse polarity protection
for maximum service life. An indicator light on face is provided for siren output diagnostics.
The SC-411HS also provides 3 primary buttons (equivalent to lever switch operation) with LED indicators for
primary lighting system control of up to 50 amps total and automatic siren tone in last position. Six programmable lighted push buttons with replaceable legends provide auxiliary lighting or other device control up to 10
amps per switch. Each output is fused and monitored with visual and audible indicators for diagnostics. An
alert periodically sounds (may be disabled) when outputs are on to help prevent leaving lights on unintentionally. A video camera trigger output is activated with the primary buttons or programmed auxiliary buttons. Two
buttons are dedicated to arrow stick control (left, right, center) with function indication and specific control outputs.
All optional settings are programmed from the handheld controller face. These settings are synchronized between the handheld controller and amplifier using our QuickClone® duplication technology, a quick-copy feature
for simple transfer of option setting among multiple handheld controllers and amplifiers for efficient fleet installations.

Installation and Operating Instructions
SC-411HS-20
SPECIFICATIONS
INSTALLATION
Proper installation of the unit is essential for years of safe, reliable operation. Please read all instruction before
installing the unit. Failure to follow these instructions can cause serious damage to the unit or vehicle and may
void warranties.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
For the safety of the installer, vehicle operator, passengers and the community please observe the following
safety precautions. Failure to follow all safety precautions and instructions may result in property damage, injury or death.
Qualifications - The installer must have a firm knowledge of basic electricity, vehicle electrical systems and
emergency equipment.
Mounting - Mount the control handle for easy access by the vehicle operator. DO NOT mount in air bag deployment area. Assure clearances before drilling in vehicle. Mount the amplifier in a protected area with at
least 1” clearance on all sides for heat dissipation.
Wiring - Use wiring capable of handling the current required. Make sure all connections are tight. Route wiring
to prevent wear, overheating and interference with air bag deployment. Install and check all wiring before connection to vehicle battery.
Testing - Test all siren functions after installation to assure proper operation. Test vehicle operation to assure
no damage to vehicle.
Sound Hazard - Sound level from siren speaker (>120dBA @ 10 feet) may cause hearing damage.
Do not operate siren without adequate hearing protection for you and anyone in immediate vicinity.
(Ref. OSHA 1910.95 for occupational noise exposure guidelines)

Yelp, Phaser, and Horn tones allowing hands free operation through intersections.
With Siren mode in WAIL, YELP, or PHSR, tap the horn ring to start Sweep function. Tap the horn ring again to
start the faster Intersection function. Repeatedly tapping the horn ring will switch between Sweep and Intersection functions. Tapping the horn ring twice quickly will return to Wail, Yelp, or Phaser tone. Pressing and holding the horn ring will produce Horn tone until released. Then the siren will return to the Sweep or Intersection
sequence.

OPERATION
(Continued)
LIGHT SYSTEM CONTROLS
3 Primary buttons control the primary lighting functions. Six additional programmable buttons are provided for
auxiliary lighting or other device control. Two dedicated buttons operate directional control lights (“Arrow Stick”).
An optional Instant On feature allows use of the Primary buttons with the ignition off.
Primary Buttons - These buttons by default provide progressive (additive) control of lighting functions. The
third button also provides Automatic Siren. The installer can change to non-progressive operation.
Automatic Siren - Primary button 3 provides Automatic Siren control. If the siren mode is set where there is no
siren tone output, the Automatic Siren will override with Wail or other tone. The cutout input will stop the siren
tone. This feature may be disabled.
Auxiliary Control Buttons - Six lighted pushbuttons are provided for various other lighting functions or device
control. The button lights Red when activated. The buttons may also be programmed for different functions,
and these buttons may be combined with each Primary button to automatically turn on and off.
Arrow Stick Control Buttons - Two dedicated buttons are provided to control traffic director lights on the vehicle. Press left or right buttons to set the direction. Turning on both will set the output to left, right and center.
These buttons can be used if any Primary button is active with the Instant On feature turned on.
Switch Legends - Different legends may be selected to match the device controlled. A sheet of labels is supplied.
DIM - The backlighting and indicator lights can be dimmed or turned off by repeatedly pressing the DIM button.
An optional connection to the vehicle dash lights may also control this level. This button will light whenever a
siren tone is produced.
Video Trigger Output - A video camera trigger output is activated with Primary buttons 1, 2, or 3 active. Programmed auxiliary control switches may also activate the output.
Alert - While the Primary buttons or auxiliary control buttons are on, an alert beep is sounded every 15 seconds.
This can be optionally disable.
DIAGNOSTICS
The unit monitors all outputs for faults, which are usually traced to shorted circuits. The unit indicates these
faults by flashing one or more lights and beeping. The following table shows fault indications and likely causes.

PROGRAM TRANSFER (QuickClone®)
To facilitate programming of multiple vehicles this unit automatically synchronizes option settings between the
handheld controller and amplifier on power-up as shown. Transfer the settings to multiple vehicles by temporarily installing with a common handheld controller, power-up/down (transferring options to the amplifier), then
permanently install the supplied handheld controller. On power-up the options are transferred from the amplifier
to the handheld controller.

SERVICE
This unit is designed to provide years of reliable service under even the worst conditions. Many times there
may appear to be a problem with the unit when the true problem is in the speaker(s), controlled devices, or
improper installation. The following chart shows typical symptoms and possible causes.
A blown siren fuse doesn't necessarily mean that the unit is bad. If a speaker or speaker lead is shorted the
internal fuse will blow before the unit is damaged. Disconnect the speaker leads and replace the fuse. If the
DIM light comes on solidly with power on and Yelp selected it is OK. Check the speaker(s) or leads for possible
shorting.
