    How to make Generic Whelen Transporter for B-Link & Smart Messenger

    @five0fan - can you provide the exact device model number? I see its made by dtech but it looks like the model-specific info is on printed on a label on the side. I'm wondering what its power requirements are...i.e. does it need +5V but you're powering it with +12? The serial line (two wires)...

    How to make Generic Whelen Transporter for B-Link & Smart Messenger

    Attached is the code running on the arduino. Most of it was a "Cell phone" example provided by the TFT vendor. Lines 124, 125, 126 comprise the specific sequences sent to the 9U. The 9U needs a constant stream presented otherwise (to the 9U), such an absence looks like a power-off/disconnect...

    How to make Generic Whelen Transporter for B-Link & Smart Messenger

    shows my attempt at this idea. irun4fundotca described a "nextion screen" in the oh-so-cool "B-link serial thread". He didn't mention specially which device he chose. It seems like he got it working but I _wish_ the dude was back around here so we could dig deeper!

    Whelen ?

    Local pickup only! Ouch! I'm not too close to GA :) FWIW I recently got a 5200 head-only NOS but arrived DOA. Just replaced the main power transistor with a Motorola 2N5882 and she came right back to life. The 2N5882 seems to work pretty well in old UPSs too. These beauties are worth saving!

    How to make Generic Whelen Transporter for B-Link & Smart Messenger

    Depends on how many "C" programmers are in the room. I'm familiar with Microsoft's Visual Studio platform, Microchip's MPLAB-X/XC8, Ardiuno's dev platform (also Mac OS Xcode but not aimed at Whelen exploration) and have used these to poke and prod Whelen's strobe stuff. Anyone else??? This would...

    How to make Generic Whelen Transporter for B-Link & Smart Messenger

    I've used a FTDI USB-RS485-WE-1800-BT I got from Digi-key without any problems (on Windows 7) I've had it talk successfully to MPC01s, BL10000, ULTRA and even a UB412 PS (Windows machine acting like the SC board feeding the UB412 its flash timings). I think the neat thing about C17LVFD's...

    Hello from Central MA.

    I've been into Whelen strobes since I saw my first Strobe II beacon mounted on a Boston Edison truck in the late '70s. Shoutout to the B-link Serial Thread and in particular, members: PJH, irun4fundotca and C17LVFD. This was one of the most interesting, informative and inspiring threads I've...
