Introduction
The 3690 series electronic sirens has been designed to meet the needs of all emergency vehicles. This
series of sirens incorporates the popular packaging and features of the V-CON siren with completely new
MOSFET technology. Specifications are subject to change without notice.
!
WARNING!
Sirens are an integral part of an effective audio/visual emergency warning system. However, sirens are only short range secondary warning devices. The use of a siren does not
insure that all drivers can or will observe or react to an emergency warning signal, particularly at long distances or when either vehicle is traveling at a high rate of speed. Sirens
should only be used in a combination with effective warning lights and never relied upon as
a sole warning signal. Never take the right of way for granted. It is your responsibility to
be sure you can proceed safely before entering an intersection, driving against traffic, or
responding at a high rate of speed.
The effectiveness of this warning device is highly dependent upon correct mounting and
wiring. Read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions before installing or using this
device. The vehicle operator should check the equipment daily to insure that all features of
the device operate correctly.
To be effective, sirens must produce high sound levels that potentially can inflict hearing
damage. Installers should be warned to wear hearing protection, clear bystanders from the
area and not to operate the siren indoors during testing. Vehicle operators and occupants
should assess their exposure to siren noise and determine what steps, such as consultation with professionals or use of hearing protection should be implemented to protect their
hearing.
This equipment is intended for use by authorized personnel only. It is the user’s responsibility to understand and obey all laws regarding emergency warning devices. The user
should check all applicable city, state and federal laws and regulations.
Public Safety Equipment, Inc., assumes no liability for any loss resulting from the use of
this warning device.
Proper installation is vital to the performance of the siren and the safe operation of the
emergency vehicle. It is important to recognize that the operator of the emergency vehicle
is under psychological and physiological stress caused by the emergency situation. The
siren system should be installed in such a manner as to: A) Not reduce the acoustical
performance of the system, B) Limit as much as practical the noise level in the passenger
compartment of the vehicle, C) Place the controls within convenient reach of the operator
so that he can operate the system without losing eye contact with the roadway.
Emergency warning devices often require high electrical voltages and/or currents. Properly protect and use caution around live electrical connections. Grounding or shorting of
electrical connections can cause high current arcing, which can cause personal injury and/
or severe vehicle damage, including fire.
PROPER INSTALLATION COMBINED WITH OPERATOR TRAINING IN THE PROPER
USE OF EMERGENCY WARNING DEVICES IS ESSENTIAL TO INSURE THE SAFETY
OF EMERGENCY PERSONNEL AND THE PUBLIC.

Unpacking & Pre-installation
!
WARNING!
All devices should be mounted in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and
securely fastened to vehicle elements of sufficient strength to withstand the forces applied to
the device. Ease of operation and convenience to the operator should be the prime
consideration when mounting the siren and controls. Adjust the mounting angle to allow
maximum operator visibility. Do not mount the Control Head Module in a location that will
obstruct the drivers view. Mount the microphone clip in a convenient location to allow the
operator easy access. Devices should be mounted only in locations that conform to their
SAE identification code as described in SAE Standard J1849. For example, electronics
designed for interior mounting should not be placed underhood, etc.
Controls should be placed within convenient reach* of the driver or if intended for two
person operation the driver and/or passenger. In some vehicles, multiple control switches
and/or using methods such as “horn ring transfer” which utilizes the vehicle horn switch to
toggle between siren tones may be necessary for convenient operation from two positions.
* Convenient reach is defined as the ability of the operator of the siren systems to manipulate
the controls from his normal driving/riding position without excessive movement away from
the seat back or loss of eye contact with the
roadway.
After unpacking your 3690 series siren, carefully inspect the unit
and associated parts for any damage that may have been caused
in transit. Report any damage to the carrier immediately.
Installation & Mounting
The 3690 series siren may be mounted above the dash, below the
dash, on a tunnel or in a rack with the mounting bracket (bail) and
the hardware supplied (see Fig. 2). Ease of operation and
convenience to the operator should be the prime consideration
when mounting the siren and controls.
Install the siren on the bail bracket using the 1/4-20 x 1/
2" bolts and 1/4" flat washers supplied. Longer bolts
will prevent removal of the chassis from the cover
and may damage internal components. See Figure 2
for assembly and positioning details.
Figure 2
NOTE: Set-ups and adjustments will be made in subsequent steps, depending upon the model and
options purchased, that may require access to the rear area of the unit. Plan the installation and
wiring accordingly.
Amplifier Connections
Siren Amplifier Connector - As a standard feature, the Siren and Auxiliary sections (L4 models)
of your unit come equipped with a screw terminal block. To terminate the wires, strip approximately
1/4" of insulation from the end of each wire and insert it in the appropriate terminal. Tighten the
screw and proceed to the next connection.

Terminal Block Connections
8 Position Terminal Block- ( see wiring diagram page 16 )
S1 - +12VDC, connect to a positive +12 volt DC source. It is recommended that the user protect
this wire with a 20 Amp fuse or circuit breaker located at the source. Use #14 gauge wire.
S2 - GROUND, connect to the negative terminal of the battery. This supplies ground (earth) to the
siren. Use #14 gauge wire.
S3 - Speaker Common, connect to one of the wires from speaker.
S4 - 58W Speaker, connect to the remaining speaker lead for 58W speaker only.
S5 - 100/200W Speaker, connect to the remaining speaker lead for 100/200W operation (1-100W,
11 ohm speaker or 2-100W, 11 ohm speakers connected in parallel).
S6 - Remote input (Horn ring or foot switch) can be configured for either ground (earth) or positive
signals. Unit is configured for a ground ( earth ) at the factory. See DETAIL A for further information
on configuring for a +12V input.
S7 - RRB, connect to one side of the two-way radio speaker.
S8 - RRB, connect to the second side of the two-way radio speaker.
Larger wires and tight connections will provide longer service life for components. For high
current wires it is highly recommended that terminal blocks or soldered connections be used
with shrink tubing to protect the connections. Do not use insulation displacement connectors
(e.g. 3M® ) Scotchlock type connectors). Route wiring using grommets and sealant when
WARNING!
passing through compartment walls. Minimize the number of splices to reduce
voltage drop.
High ambient temperatures (e.g. underhood) will significantly reduce the
current carrying
capacity of wires, fuses, and circuit breakers. Use "SXL" type wire in
engine compartment. All
wiring should conform to the minimum wire size and other
recommendations of the
manufacturer and be protected from moving parts
and hot surfaces. Looms, grommets, cable
ties, and similiar installation hardware
should be used to anchor and protect all wiring.
Fuses or circuit breakers should be located as close to the power takeoff points as possible
and properly sized to protect the wiring and devices. Particular attention should be paid to the
location and method of making electrical connections and splices to protect these points from
corrosion and loss of conductivity. Ground (Earth)terminations should only be made to
substantial chassis components, preferably directly to the vehicle battery.
The user should install a circuit breaker sized to approximately 125% of the maximum Amp
capacity in the supply line to protect against short circuits. For example, a 30 Amp circuit
breaker should carry a maximum of 24 Amps.
DO NOT USE 1/4" DIAMETER GLASS FUSES AS THEY ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR
CONTINUOUS DUTY IN SIZES ABOVE 15 AMPS. Circuit breakers are very sensitive to high
temperatures and will "false trip" when mounted in hot environments or operated close to their
capacity.

!
WARNING!
The speaker's sound projecting opening should be pointed forward, parallel to the ground, and
not obstructed or muffled by structural components of the vehicle. Concealed or under-hood
mountings in some cases will result in a dramatic reduction in performance. To minimize this
reduction, mount the speaker so the sound emitted is projected directly forward and obstruction
by vehicle components such as hoses, brackets, grille, etc. is minimized.
Electromechanical sirens and electronic siren speakers should be mounted as far from the
occupants as possible using acoustically insulated compartments and isolation mountings to
minimize the transmission of sound into the vehicle. It may be helpful to mount the device on
the front bumper, engine cowl or fender; heavily insulate the passenger compartment; and
operate the siren only with the windows closed.
Each of these approaches may cause significant operational problems, including loss of siren
performance from road slush, increased likelihood of damage to the siren in minor collisions,
and the inability to hear the sirens on other emergency vehicles.
APPROPRIATE TRAINING OF VEHICLE OPERATORS IS RECOMMENDED TO ALERT
THEM TOTHESE PROBLEMS AND MINIMIZE THE EFFECT OF THESE PROBLEMS
DURING OPERATIONS.
Power Distribution Connections ("L4" Models)
A #8 stud is provided on the rear of the unit and is intended for use ONLY as a convenient ground
(earth) " tie-point " for the light bar wiring. It is not an adequate ground (earth) for the siren or
the light bar. It is recommended all ground (earth) wires attached here be terminated with a
crimp-on ring terminal.
11-Position Terminal Block - Lighting Control - (See Wiring Diagram page 16)
IMPORTANT!
Remember auxillary outputs A, B & D on L4 models can supply a maximum of 20 Amps each
for a combined total of 30 Amps. Install appropriate fuses in each output wire as close to the
siren as possible.
T1 - SW C COM - Common or power feed for Auxiliary Switch "C". Terminals are a SPDT circuit
that may be connected as a momentary (or latching depending on the switch ordered) ignition
controlled circuit, or used for switching auxiliary circuits. It will Handle 10 Amps, and should be
protected with a fuse at the battery if individually fed.

volts at terminal T8. Switch position 2 provides +12 volts at terminals T8 & T9. Switch
position 3 provides +12 volts at terminals T8, T9 & T10.
SET-UP AND ADJUSTMENT
Make these adjustments and position the set-up switches prior to final mounting.
Audio Adjustments
PA/RRB Volume Adjustment - This is the main volume control located on the right side of the front
panel. This control sets the PA and RRB volume. Set the front panel volume control to the point
that the PA volume from the siren speaker is such that there is no feedback and the PA audio is
intelligible.
Radio Rebroadcast Adjustment - Place the selector switch in the RADIO position. The MAX RRB
trimmer located on the rear panel of the siren and is accessible through the small hole labeled RRB.
This control sets the maximum RRB level that will reach with the front panel volume control. To
adjust properly, set the volume knob fully clockwise and adjust the RRB trimmer such that with the
two-way radio volume inside the vehicle set to it's normal level, the the desired volume level is
produced outside the vehicle by the siren speaker.

The remote input can be configured to accept either a positive +12V or negative GND ( Earth )
signal for actuation. All 3690 series sirens are shipped set-up to accept the GND (Earth) signal
from the vehicle HORN Switch present on most vehicles. To reconfigure the Remote input to
accept a +12V signal, remove the cover and locate the Horn Ring Polarity jumper on the left rear of
the coner of the amplifier board. Place both jumpers towards the "+ " position. Refer to DETAIL "A"
for a complete illustration.
Configuration Switches
Referring to DETAIL B below, gently set the Hit & Go, LightAlert and SirenLock set-up switches
to the desired position. These switches are present even if the options were not purchased. If the
SirenLock option was purchased and is switched on, all of the tones except AIR HORN, are
disabled until the 3-Level Warning Light Switch is moved to either the Level-2 or the Level-3
positions.
Hit & Go - Slide the switch (#4) forward to allow the feature to operate, to the rear to defeat it.
LightAlert - Slide the switch (#2) forward to allow the feature to operate, to the rear to defeat it.
This switch has no effect on the flashing LED indicator. When in the OFF position, disables the
LightAlert tone, which alerts the operator audibly when any lighting switch is activated.
SirenLock - The SirenLock option, when not defeated by means of the internal switches, allows
siren tones (Wail, Yelp, and Hi-Lo) to be produced only when the 3-Level Warning Light Switch is in
the Lighting Level 2 (Green and Yellow LED's) or Lighting Level 3 (Green, Yellow, and Red LED's)
position. Air Horn, Radio Rebroadcast, and Public Address are unaffected by this option.

Operation
Rotary Function Selector Switch
RADIO - In the RADIO position, the audio from the 2-way radio is rebroadcast over the siren speaker. The
siren tones (Wail, Yelp, & Hi-Lo) do not operate in this position.
STANDBY - This is the standby mode. If the MANUAL button is depressed , the Manual wail tone will ramp
up until it reaches a peak then ramp down when released. If the AIR HORN button is depressed, the Air Horn
sound will be produced.
WAIL - This position produces the Wail tone. Depressing the MANUAL button will now produce the Yelp tone
for 7 seconds. Depressing the AIR HORN button will produce the Air Horn sound and when released will
return siren to Wail tone.
!
WARNING!
"Wail" and "Yelp" tones are in some cases (such as in the state of California) the only recognized
siren tones for calling for the right of way. Ancillary tones such as "Air Horn", "Hi-Lo",
"Hyperyelp", and "Hyperlo" in some cases do not provide as high a sound pressure level. It is
recommended that these tones beused in a secondary mode to alert motorists to the presence of
an emergency vehicle.
YELP - This position produces the Yelp tone. Pushing the MANUAL button will continue to produce the Yelp
tone. If the AIRHORN button is pushed, the Airhorn sound will be produced and when released will return the
siren to Yelp.
HI-LO - This position produces the Hi-Lo tone. Pushing the MANUAL button will now produce the Yelp tone
for 7 seconds. If the AIRHORN button is pushed, the Airhorn sound will be produced and when released will
return siren to Hi-Lo.
P.A. VOLUME Knob - This control adjusts the level of the P.A. audio produced when keying the microphone
and speaking into it. This control also controls the Radio Re-broadcast level when in the " Radio " position
(see SET-UP, Radio Rebroadcast Adjustment).
Push-to-Talk (PTT) Microphone Switch - Keying the microphone will automatically override whatever mode
the siren is in and broadcast public address messages over the siren speaker. PTT operates in all positions
of the Selector switch.
MANUAL Pushbutton Momentary Switch -Has no effect when the selector switch is in RADIO, produces
the effects described above for each selector position.
AIR HORN Pushbutton Momentary Switch (Models 3692, 3694, 3692L4 & 3694L4 only) - Produces the
Air Horn tone in all selector switch settings except RADIO.
SLIDE SWITCH (Models 3692, 3694, 3692L4 & 3694L4 only) - The slide switch located between the AIR
HORN and MANUAL buttons selects the function for the REMOTE (external switch) circuitry. When the
switch is to the right, the Horn Ring circuitry remotely "depresses" the AIR HORN button and generate the
AIR HORN tone. When the slide switch is to the left, it allows the REMOTE circuitry to remotely "depress"
the MANUAL pushbutton and generate the MANUAL tone.

Options
LightAlert TM (L4 Models Only)- An audible alarm pulse that indicates that either the primary warning system
or one of the auxiliary control circuits is on. User defeatable.
SirenLock TM (L4 and L6 Models Only)- An interlock circuit between the siren and the light control circuits that
permits automatic siren tones only when the progressive switch is in Level 3 or in Level 2 or 3 (user
selectable - works in conjunction with the horn transfer relay). This feature is used in jurisdictions that
require warning lights to be on before the siren is activated.
InterClear® This unique feature can be used to activate additional warning lights for 7 seconds when in an
Hit-N-Go override or " scrolling " by pushing a single button or the vehicle horn ring, thus allowing an
additional level of warning in situations such as intersections without the operator having to take his hands off
the wheel or his eyes off the road.
Pluggable Microphone - A plug-in microphone jack in lieu of the standard wired-in microphone may be
specified. A plug-in noise-canceling microphone must be ordered seperately if needed.
