seeing this bar - in the second pic - has anyone ever done a mini "roto-ray" in a bar?cpdchief said:And my very own! This uses Whelen 700 series and Tomar RECT34 LEDs. They are all independent. I'm debating on whether to add a flasher or not in the future. As of now, the bar is only half done as I have only completed the front. The rear still has the original strobes. Complete with a Barker's beauty! Video to follow soon!
They are 6-diode Federal Signal Solaris modules from Arjents. I don't have any TDs or alleys in it because this will be used for a fire dept. POV, either mine or someone else's. There is definitely room for them, I would just need to move some of the modules around. I know a guy with a pair of MR11s out of a Justice that we replaced with LR11s, so if those fit they might go in.theroofable said:What kind of modules are they? Looks nice, takedowns or alleys? A ULF44 would go nice with that bar, I always liked their flash patterns.
If they didn't fit I wouldn't be able to get the domes on. I was going to do it like the factory but it looked better to angle them. The factory uses different modules for the ends.ChargerLighting said:Stupid question, but do the Jet domes still fit with the corners like that? Looks like its' close is all.
I know the factory setup is front, rear & side modules with nothing angled.
I might put in some MR11s. I realize that there is a decent space between the modules but this will most likely be used for vol. FD POV, so alleys aren't really needed.sbparkcop said:Are you going to install any sort of alley lights?
You could always go with a 4" Microman stick just to give it that extra bump of light to the sidesphilyumpshus said:If they didn't fit I wouldn't be able to get the domes on. I was going to do it like the factory but it looked better to angle them. The factory uses different modules for the ends.

There's not enough room. I plan on selling the bar when it's complete so I don't really care about completely loading it with lights. The side coverage is very good as it is there is just a gap between the lights.ark_firefighter said:You could always go with a 4" Microman stick just to give it that extra bump of light to the sides
I like the addition of the hotfoot mounts... like on the new SL vector...chief230 said:This is my Custom Vetor LED. The Vector was dead and I found a Federal raydian Cuda. I was able to fabricate brackets to attach the cuda units. I also untilized the hot feet and the power unit. I used a SM2000 for the controller. Sorry for the poor photos as it has not been above freezing for several weeks. I am trying to post a video but am having trouble.
I also will be starting to build another vector for my sons truck. It will use 18 solaris units I found on Ebay. I think I will use a ULF44 but have not figured out what to use for switches. I will try to post more photos and video when I fugure out how.
My camera takes much better videos of strobes in the dark, so you might want to consider turning off the lights and covering up the window for the next video.signal12 said:further experimenting with the rotating strobes. although hard to see in the vid, 2 of the rotating fresnal lenses are 3 colors and 2 are two colors. one of them is 50% blue 25% white and 25% red. the other is 50% red with 25% white and 25% blue. the two color ones are 50/50. wish there was a better way to shoot a vid that can clearly show how it actually looks. the camera does not catch all the flashes and makes it appear to be operating erraically.
and on another note.... those are some awesome bars being shown in this thread. keep at it!
