Any one have any info on the Whelen Carbide system ? Cost etc?
Yes, you can setup a cruise button. You can program only a few select outputs and lightheads on your lightbar, or you can have every lighthead programmed into your cruise button (sort of like what a lot of CT LE agencies are doing with CanTrol).Would you be able to do a video of the lighting set up with Carbide when you have the install complete? Does your dept like to run cruise lights or use steady flash or steady burn for it's fleet? I'm getting my department set up using cruise lights and having a separate button programmed for steady flash on the lightbar etc. If it's a hit I'd like to educate them on the carbide and it's ability to do all that for our slick tops.
Perfect! I'll have to look into this and talk to my commander. I did speak to a MSP Sgt. about your steady flash and after speaking to my commander I will be setting up some of our new rigs with steady flash on the light bar with lower level lighting normal flashing. Our bars are mixed red/blue so I won't have the whole bar on steady flash like MSP/RISP do.Yes, you can setup a cruise button.

Steady Flash is being used by my agency, the MA State Police, CT State Police, RI State Police, and several smaller departments as a reduced power night time park pattern. Carbide will do this and sync your lightheads with your WeCan bar(s). The pattern is a favorite of ours and is a big reason we probably won't be going with the Soundoff bluePRINT.
I love the Carbide so far. There are a few bugs with the software, but it's only version 1.00.00 and Whelen is already hard at work fixing them.
Looks awesome. Nice setup too. I can't wait to get mine. What brand of console does the vehicle have? Also, was the carbide able to do everything you wanted? Thanks.Here she is. Whelen Carbide installed. Just waiting on the radios and graphics before she's on the road.
The console is a Troy. This is the first car I've used one of their products in. I've always used and swore by Havis, but this thing is solid. From here on out, I maybe buying Troy.Looks awesome.

Unfortunately, yes. And what I mean by that is the NPS (Washington Office) has updated the vehicle markings policy and we have new markings. They're a HUGE step in the wrong direction. They didn't consult or ask for suggestions from the Officers working in the field. Now we're driving around in vehicles with an National Park Service billboard displayed on the side.TACKLEBERRY - any chances of seeing some photographs of the parks unit after graphics are on it?
FAS (Fleet Auto Supply) does a really great job on all of their installs. He is not that far from me and have bought a multitude of lights from him over the many years I have known him.
Just splice all your WeCan wires together (connect all the greens and all the grays). It can handle up to 3 different WeCan devices.Is it possible for someone that has experience or knowledge of wiring the carbine to explain how to wire in an Inner Edge and a Rear Inner Edge RTX into the system. I just get hung up on the fact that there is only one WeCan Input and I have 2 devices for that. Maybe I'm just overtired and missing something. But anything (pictures, explanations, loud noises) would help.
