Hello,


I recently obtained a Federal Signal Vision 44" Lightbar that has the following Chip sets, Bar-3.00 (POLBC300), Control Brain-1.02(POLRB102) and 3.00(SDSAB300), Controler-2.01 (POLRP201) and to say Everything Works!!!


I would like to know if their are newer revisions of the chips and how much they cost. Even though everything works, I'm having some small glitches come up but able to fix after reseting the system by shutting the truck off.

No they do not.


I have the same vision bar as Towman88, all the chips(the one in the bar, keypad and controller) do NOT match at all, and it works perfectly and programs properly.


My problem was I was hooking it up to an uber clean power supply, but the hi wattage bulbs were dropping the voltage to 8V on the in-rush of current, which caused the system to wig out. I put it on a battery and had no problems, put lower wattage bulbs in(the bar is for display) again, no problems.
