    Wanted Whelen Advantedge

    Hi everyone - I've been interested in buying a Whelen Advantedge (halogen) (full size) for a while now, but haven't seen many listed for sale. I'd like to find a red/blue version. If possible I'd like to find one with alley, takedowns, etc if they came with those options. Just seeing if...

    Wanted JetSonic Jetstream

    Here's another possibility from Los Angeles Craigslist....looks like two Jetstreams and two arrowsticks for $125.00. Not a bad price for all those. https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/for/d/anaheim-amber-lightbars-traffic-adviser/7267787117.html

    Wanted Whelen Piercer II Housing

    Not sure if you use EBay, but there are some on there for $35.00 or best offer and free shipping. It says he has more than 10 of them. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Whelen-Piercier-Used/164256724135?hash=item263e76b4a7:g:PtAAAOSw6Qde7-0q

    Wanted Federal Signal Vector Oscillating Center Pods

    The gear I mentioned that gets hot/brittle and breaks over time isn't the worm gear though, it's the gear with the metal arm in it. (I haven't had a worm gear break yet. The worm gears are the ones actually on the motor shaft.) That gear (with the pivot holes in it for the metal arm) is hard...

    Wanted Federal Signal Vector Oscillating Center Pods

    Might be easier to find the TCL for sale on here. There's a guy on EBay that has 10 of them for sale, supposedly NOS, but he wants $200.00 each! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Federal-Signal-Aerodynic-Lightbar-TCL-Traffic-Control-Light-New-Old-Stock/313190431679?hash=item48eb9abbbf:g:jtIAAOSwuqNf4kAl

    Wanted Federal Signal Vector Oscillating Center Pods

    Here's the email I received from Federal Signal when I was trying to find replacement oscillating gears for the oscillating pods. (They still sell domes according to this email, too.) The price for an oscillating pod is actually $143.00. You might be able to find the traffic clearing lights...

    Wanted Federal Signal Vector Oscillating Center Pods

    That's actually my YouTube video above that Police-Jimmy posted for you, the FS oscillating pod. Is that what you're looking for? Some Vector and Smart Vector bars came with those in the center pods. The gear gets brittle over time and breaks. In my video I replaced the brittle/broken gear...

    Whelen SmartLogic Flasher Info

    Please take my advice worth a grain of salt...I've never wired one of these up, but I found some instructions for a SmartLogic flasher that says wire it up to the battery basically. Negative to negative battery terminal then positive to a 40 amp fuse block to the positive battery terminal...

    Wanted JetSonic Jetstream

    I'm not sure if I'm allowed to mention other websites, but I found three Jetstreams in California after a quick search. One, new in the box, is on Ebay and is located in San Diego, but he wants $635.00 for it. Then, on Craigslist there's two of them under the Los Angeles section, one is for...

    Federal signal model 174

    One day, like when I win the lottery, I hope to buy one of these lights and add it to the collection. I've seen these on EBay for $500-$900. (I'd love an Aurora Borealis Mars light, too!) Hey...a guy can dream!

    Need help identifying visions smart pods

    Sorry I'm blabbing so much, but my guess is someone couldn't get a Vision programmed or maybe parts on the Vision went bad so they 'converted' it to how it is now so it was usable. Here's the Vision "smart" pod and stepper motor visible, too (underneath the metal frame and no tooth gears). All...

    Need help identifying visions smart pods

    I think it was a Vision in the beginning then someone did a "custom" job on it for some reason. I think Jennifer Rose Towing is correct, it looks like Code 3 rotators (or some other rotator) screwed down in position. (Not how Visions are made at all.) In the Visions, all 7 pods, have the...

    Need help identifying visions smart pods

    A search on Federal Signal's site of "V7PSS-SM" brings up to manuals for a Premium Vision light bar controller, but I personally haven't seen a Vision like your pictures. Have you taken the triangle shaped cover off to see what kind of boards are inside? Usually a Vector is regular motors. A...

    Wiring question - SVP led grille lights

    The guy I purchased it from just wrote me he said to just "tap" the purple wire to the red/positive to change the pattern. He buys surplus lights and sells them so wanted to make sure before I tried it and fried something. You say touch it to the ground though. This is why I wanted to make...

    Wiring question - SVP led grille lights

    Hello! So I usually don't buy LED lights, but I ended up buying a pair of SVP bumper/grille lights. The guy I bought them from has it marked that the purple wire is for "pattern". The question I have, what do you touch the purple wire to in order to change the pattern?? There's not a model...

    Legend Pattern Not Staying Programmed

    I've never programmed one, but have you seen this video on programming one? He talks for a while, but about 6 minutes into the video he shows programming steps. Might see what he's doing compared to what you are doing. (If you're using the same controller??) If the video doesn't help maybe...

    Vision bar connection parts missing.

    Exactly, that's why I was wondering if you had a picture of the actual lights. The standard motors look the first picture below and the "smart pods" look like the other pictures. If that light bar only had the standard motors it's a vector. If it had two of these smart pods it's a...

    Vision bar connection parts missing.

    Ok, thanks! I've never seen one wired up like that. I'm not sure how that would work on a Vision since Vision's have the stepper motors and home sensors and stuff. Interesting! Thanks! Sorry for being nosey, I like light bars and try to learn as much as I can.

    Vision bar connection parts missing.

    solidamber, Usually in a vision lightbar are three circuit boards that look like this picture below. Like Jennifer Rose said, that lightbar you have is totally custom. Is your lightbar a Vector, Smart Vector or Vision though? (I'm just curious.) Do you have pictures of the lights? A vector will...

    Can you slow down rotator motors?

    I'll try to find gears first, the resistors are just a "back-up" idea.

    Can you slow down rotator motors?

    Thank you! I'm trying to find some slow rotators to slow down some D-Tech rotators for a more distinct flash rather than a fast "twinkle". I noticed also the motor shaft on some motors is smaller diameter than other motors so I thought about the worm gears, but can't seem to find the same size...

    Can you slow down rotator motors?

    Anyone know a tip/trick where you can slow down the speed of a fast rotator motor? Why do some motors have capacitors across the + and - terminals and some motors don't? I heard somewhere you can use resistors in series circuit to do this, is that true? I like the slower motors better and...

    Still looking if anyone has any. Thank you!

    Awesome and just to confirm, they are the slow speed type?

    Wanted Code 3 (or Federal Signal) slow speed/standard speed rotator motors.

    Hi - would anyone have any of the Code 3 rotator motors that fit the MX7000? (Or Federal Signal.) I'm just looking for the motors, not the entire rotator assembly. I'd like to find at least two, but depending on price I may buy a couple extra. Thank you!

    Positive Bought Positive from mls60442

    mls60442 was great. Good prices, great communication, provided tracking number, packaged items very well for shipping, fast/quick shipping. Could not have went better! Thank you for the D-Tech rotators!

    Information / Jetstream domes

    I've just seen them in pictures, not sure how common they are. Like these: That's what I was thinking also, but thought I'd check. I think domes like that for the Jet-series would have been nice!
