So I'm curious, I know there are now (at least) two versions of the 4200... what is the easiest way to tell if you have a version 1 or version 2 relay box?


Also between version 1 and 2, are the wig wag outputs different or exactly the same?


Thanks!

I am attaching the 2 different Install manuals I have saved, and in them you can see what the differences are.

IIRC it had to do with creating more outputs, and removing some of the grouped, larger Amp outputs from the original version, as well as some other changes. Outputs for Wig-Wags are 2&3 on both versions.

Thanks for that Nathan. I guess there's a third version of the relay box as well. See the following attached file.

Thanks. I have not done any work on my 4200 in a few months, so I didn't go searching for any new/updated manuals (since I have the original one).

On the old one it said you can plug a lightbar into the RJ45 which is not used on the newer version. It also says the USB was used on the old version to connect to a computer system.

As for the outputs they are all the same as well as the inputs. Going by what those install manuals say.

The differences between version 1 and version 2 are nice improvements in my opinion. We separated the group outputs and added an additional single output. There's also a reverse polarity protection seeing that this was the major issue with version 1. Despite the labeling that was adhered to it, reverse polarity was the number 1 issue. It's fixed now!

Are there different colored boards that can help people determine which version they have?

I know they said RJ-45 was going to still be in development for a bit. Cause the original intent I believe, was to allow that port to control a lightbar or siren. Not sure how far that's come along development.

One mine, an older version, I personally enjoy having the ground output. In conjuction with the bluetooth, it allows me to change and view the flash patterns from outside the vehicle without getting down into the wiring. Makes it much easier to decide on a pattern without having to take my seats out to get to my wiring.

Yes, if you have a blue board it's version 1. A white board is version 2.
