Installation and Maintenance Instructions
Electrical Hazards
• A light system is a high current system. For the system
to function properly, a separate negative (–) connection
and positive (+) connection must be made. All negative
connections should be connected to the negative battery
terminal and a suitable fuse should be installed on the positive
battery terminal connection as close to the battery as possible.
Ensure that all wires and fuses are rated correctly to handle the
device and system amperage requirements.
• Never attempt to install aftermarket equipment that connects
to the vehicle wiring without reviewing a vehicle wiring
diagram available from the vehicle manufacturer. Ensure that
your installation will not affect vehicle operation or mandated
safety functions or circuits. Always check the vehicle for proper
operation after installation.
• The lighting system components, especially light bulbs, strobe
tubes, LEDs, and the outer housing, get hot during operation.
Be sure to disconnect power to the system and allow the
system to cool down before handling any components of the
system.
• Do not mount a radio antenna within 18 inches (45.7 cm)
of the lighting system. Placing the antenna too close to the
lighting system could cause the lighting system to malfunction
or be damaged by strong radio fields. Mounting the antenna
too close to the lighting system may also cause the radio noise
emitted from the lighting system to interfere with the reception
of the radio transmitter and reduce radio reception.
• Do not attempt to wash any unsealed electrical device while it
is connected to its power source.
During Installation and Service
• DO NOT get metal shavings inside the product. Metal shavings
in the product can cause the system to fail. If drilling must be
done near the unit, place an ESD-approved cover over the unit.
6
SpectraLux Viper S2
Installation and Maintenance Instructions
Inspect the unit after mounting to be sure there are no shavings
present in or near the unit.
• DO NOT connect this system to the vehicle battery until
ALL other electrical connections are made, mounting of all
components is complete, and you have verified that no shorts
exist. If the wiring is shorted to the vehicle body or frame, high
current conductors can cause hazardous sparks resulting in
electrical fires or flying molten metal.
• DO NOT install equipment or route wiring (or the plug-in
cord) in the deployment path of an air bag.
• If a vehicle seat is temporarily removed, verify withe the
vehicle manufacturer, if the seat needs to be recalibrated for
proper airbag deployment.
• Before mounting any components, check the manual to be sure
that the component you are installing is suitable for use in that
area of the vehicle. Many components are not suitable for use
in the engine compartment or other extreme environmental
exposure areas.
• Before drilling into a vehicle structure, be sure that both sides
of the surface are clear of anything that could be damaged.
Remove all burrs from drilled holes. To prevent electrical
shorts, grommet all drilled holes through which wiring passes.
Also, ensure that the mounting screws do not cause electrical
or mechanical damage to the vehicle.
• Refer to the manual packed with the lighting system for proper
electrical connections, additional precautions and information.
• Because vehicle roof construction and driving conditions vary,
do not drive a vehicle with a magnetically mounted warning
light installed. The light could fly off the vehicle causing injury
or damage. Repair of damage incurred because of ignoring this
warning shall be the sole responsibility of the user.
SpectraLux Viper S2

Installation and Maintenance Instructions
• Locate the light system controls so the VEHICLE and
CONTROLS can be operated safely under all driving
conditions.
After Installation or Service
• After installation, test the light system to ensure that it is
operating properly.
• Test all vehicle functions, including horn operation, vehicle
safety functions and vehicle light systems, to ensure proper
operation. Ensure that the installation has not affected the
vehicle operation or changed any vehicle safety function or
circuit.
• Scratched or dull reflectors, mirrors or lenses will reduce the
effectiveness of the lighting system. Avoid heavy pressure and
use of caustic or petroleum based products when cleaning the
lighting system. Replace any optical components that may
have been scratched or crazed during system installation.
• Do not attempt to activate or de-activate the light system
controls while driving in a hazardous situation.
• You should frequently inspect the light system to ensure that
it is operating properly and that it is securely attached to the
vehicle.
• After installation and testing are complete, provide a copy
of these instructions to instructional staff and all operating

Installation and Maintenance Instructions
Safety Message to Operators of Warning Lights
People’s lives depend on your safe use of our products. Listed
below are some important safety instructions and precautions you
should follow:
• Do not attempt to activate or de-activate the light system
control while driving in a hazardous situation.
• Although your warning system is operating properly, it may
not be completely effective. People may not see or heed your
warning signal. You must recognize this fact and continue
driving cautiously.
• Also, situations may occur which obstruct your warning signal
when natural and man-made objects are between your vehicle
and others, such as raising your hood or trunk lid. If these
situations occur, be especially careful.
• All effective sirens and horns produce loud sounds which may
cause, in certain situations permanent hearing loss. You and
your passengers should consider taking appropriate safety
precautions such as wearing hearing protection.
• To be an effective warning device, this product produces bright
light that can be hazardous to your eyesight when viewed at a
close range. Do not stare directly into this lighting product at a
close range or permanent damage to your eyesight may occur.
• The effectiveness of an interior mounted warning light
depends on the clarity, the tinting, and the angle of the glass
it is being placed behind. Tinting, dirt defects, and steeply
angled glass reduce the light output of the warning light. This
may reduce the effectiveness of the light as a warning signal.
If your vehicle has dirty, tinted, or steeply angled glass, use
extra caution when driving your vehicle or blocking the right
of way with your vehicle.
SpectraLux Viper S2

Installation and Maintenance Instructions
• It is important that you fully understand how to safely operate
this warning system before use.
• You should only operate your vehicle and its light/sound
system in accordance with your department’s Standard
Operating Procedures.
• If a selected function does not perform properly or if any of the
lamps remain illuminated when the control is off, disconnect
the power connector from the control unit and contact the
nearest service center.
• At the start of your shift, you should ensure that the entire
warning light system and the siren system is securely attached
and operating properly.
• Suction cup mounting is for temporary applications only. The
unit should be removed from the window and stored securely
when not in use. Temperature changes and sunlight can cause
suction cups to lose holding power. Periodically check the unit
to be sure the suction cups have a firm grip on the mounting
surface. An improperly secured light could fall off of the
vehicle causing injury and damage.
• The holding power of magnetic mounting systems is dependent
upon surface finish, surface flatness, and thickness of the steel
mounting surface. Therefore, to promote proper magnetic
mounting:
✓ Mounting surface and magnets must be kept clean, dry, and
free of foreign particles that prevent good surface contact.
✓ Ensure that mounting surface is flat.
✓ A magnet mounting system should not be used on vehicles
with vinyl tops.
✓ To prevent sliding of light assembly on mounting surface,
quick acceleration and hard stops should be avoided.
Failure to follow these safety instructions and precautions may
result in property damage, serious injury, or death.

Installation and Maintenance Instructions
An Overview of the SpectraLux Viper S2
The SpectraLux ViperTM S2 LED Series lightheads are lowcurrent warning lights that are mounted only on the inside of the
vehicle. The lighthead uses Solaris® LED reflector technology to
provide a bright and effective secondary warning signal. Viper
S2 models have 6, 12, or 18 LEDs that can be ordered in various
combinations of amber, blue, red, or white with a clear lens. See
Table 2 on page 13 for a list of models and features.
All Viper S2 models are designed for use with all Federal Signal
switch controllers. The Viper S2 is supplied with hardware for
mounting the lighthead horizontally on the vehicle deck or dash.
The Viper S2 has an internal flashing circuit with 25 selectable
flash patterns, including a steady burn pattern for use with an
external flasher. Patterns are selected by briefly pressing a patternselection button.
Lightheads can be set to synchronize, synchro-shift, or both. The
synchronize/synchro-shift feature is fully compatible with the
Federal Signal Viper S2, Viper EXT and IMPAXX® warning lights.
The lighthead also has several floating-synch pattern sets that are
within one flash per minute of each other (Table 4 and 5 on pages
27 and 28). If one light is set at 74 FPM and another at 75 FPM, for
example, the lights appear to migrate in and out of synchronization.
Viper S2 lights have the ability to have an external switch/controller
or controller steady-burn override a single color by applying +BAT
to the OPTION wire. This allows a lighthead to be used as auxiliary
steady-burn light when needed as in white area lighting, but also be
used as a flashing head when the steady burn is not needed. If more
than one color is ordered in a single lighthead and one of them is
white, the Viper S2 can be set to flash white with the pattern.
By default, white is only used as a steady-burn color if there are
more than two LED colors in one lighthead. Instead of controlling
a steady-burn color, the OPTION wire can be changed to enable
white to flash with another color when +BAT is applied. When
+BAT is removed, the light stops flashing white.
12
SpectraLux Viper S2
Installation and Maintenance Instructions
Lightheads can also be set to only flash one color.
The lightheads have an operating temperature of -30 ºC to +65 ºC
(-22 ºF to +149 ºF).

Installing the Lightheads
LIGHT HAZARD—To be an effective warning device, this product
produces bright light that can be hazardous to your eyesight
when viewed at a close range. Do not stare directly into this
lighting product at a close range or permanent damage to your
eyesight may occur.
Before installing the lights, read all instructions and plan all wiring
and cable routing. To secure and protect the wiring, use grommets,
wire ties, looms, and cable mounts (installer-supplied) as needed.
The steps in installing the lights are:
1. Optional: Set a lighthead to control the flash patterns of one or
more lightheads in the Viper S2 system (see the next section).
2. Optional: For lightheads with more than one color, one of
which is white, select whether the white LEDs flash with
the pattern and/or the function of the OPTION wire. See
“Configuring Multicolor Lightheads” on page 17.
3. Mount the Viper S2 system to the vehicle. See “Mounting the
Lighthead the in a Vehicle” on page 19 or the instructions for
the mounting bracket included with the lighthead.

4. Wire the Viper S2 system to the vehicle. See page 23.
5. Select a flash pattern for the controller lighthead. See page 27.
Converting a Lighthead from Controller to
Follower and Follower to Controller
With the 329152, 329153,329252, 329253 Series Viper S2,
several lightheads can be controlled with the pattern selected for a
single lighthead. These lightheads are pre-set at the factory to be
in control mode. Before the start of your installation, determine
which lighthead will be the controller and which lighthead or
heads will be followers.
SET ONLY ONE CONTROLLER — When putting together
systems of Viper S2 lightheads ensure there is only one
controller lighthead. If more than one lighthead in a system is a
controller, the follower lightheads will malfunction.
Converting a Lighthead from Controller to Follower
To convert a lighthead to follower:
1. Connect the black wire from the lighthead to ground (–GND).
2. Apply 12 Vdc (+BAT) to the red wire from the lighthead.
3. Press and hold the pattern-selection button until the lighthead
goes out, and then flashes three times. This procedure takes
approximately three seconds to complete. Release the button
shortly after the three flashes end. Do not hold the button much
longer after the three flashes or you may change a different
feature. If the light flashes four times, you have held the button
too long. Changing from follower to controller resets all
features to the default (See Table 3 on page 17).
The patterns for the lighthead are now ready to be controlled
by another controller lighthead.

Wiring the Lighthead
WIRING PRECAUTION — Never attach both the orange wire AND
the yellow wire from the CONTROLLER lighthead to the same
FOLLOWER lighthead. Connecting both signal wires to the same
FOLLOWER will cause the lightheads to malfunction.
REVERSE POLARITY / MISWIRING — Reverse polarity or
incorrect voltage may damage the light. To avoid damage to the
light, ensure that the battery voltage is the same as the voltage
rating of the light and that the correct polarity is observed. If you
are connecting to a cigarette lighter plug, connect the positive
wire to the center terminal and connect the negative wire to the
outer terminal.
FUSE ELECTRICAL SOURCES — Always fuse current/voltage
sources with a fuse connected near the power source. Be sure
that the fuse is properly rated to protect the electrical load, the
wiring and the connectors used in the circuit. Failure to follow
this notice could result in vehicle or equipment damage
329102 and 329202 Series Viper S2
The 329102 and 329202 Series Viper S2 has a standard accessory
plug for power connection and no further wiring is necessary. If
you cut the plug from the cable to connect the Viper to the vehicle
battery, place a 5 A fuse in line with the power connection.
329152, 329153, 329252, and 329253 Series Viper S2
Make the connections shown in the figures on the next pages. For
applications using single lightheads or alternative flashing control,

Synching and Alternating Lightheads
If a Viper S2 is set to be a follower and has more than one color,
you can change which color it will sync to on power up. This
provides a very basic way to sync or alternate colors. When
configured as a follower, the Viper S2 changes its color after an
off-time of 160 milliseconds. Color syncing works best when
the lightheads that are synced together are of the same LED
configuration.

Selecting a Flash Pattern
When the lightheads are connected in a configuration, the
controller LED lighthead can be used to control the flash pattern
of the entire system. See Table 4 for single-head lighta and Table 5
for dual-head lights.
To select a flash pattern:
1. Touch and remove the white pattern-selection wire from the
controller light head to +12 Vdc (+BAT) as many times as
needed to display the pattern you want.
2. When finished, cut and seal the white wire.

Cleaning the Lightheads
CRAZING/CHEMICALS—Crazed, cracked or faded lenses or
reflectors reduce the light output and the effectiveness of the
lighting system. Lenses or reflectors showing this type of aging
must be replaced. Failure to follow this warning may result in
bodily injury or death.
SpectraLux Viper S2
29
Installation and Maintenance Instructions
USE PROPER CLEANING AGENTS — Do not use cleaning
agents that cause crazing such as strong detergents, solvents,
or petroleum products. If crazing of lenses does occur, reliability
of the light for emergency signaling may be reduced until lenses
are replaced. Failure to follow this warning may result in bodily
injury or death.
Periodically cleaning the Viper S2 lenses using proper procedures
and compatible cleaners will prolong their service life.
To clean the lightheads:
1. Use a mild soap and lukewarm water lightly applied on a soft
cloth to gently clean the plastic surfaces. To avoid damaging
the polycarbonate lenses, do not use heavy pressure or cleaners
that are caustic, abrasive, or petroleum-based.
2. To remove fine scratches and haze, use a specialty plastic
cleaner/polish and a soft cloth. You can also use a high quality
automotive paste cleaner/wax that is non-abrasive.
