Hey guys, I recently came across some lights I had laying around and they're Whelen TIR6's but only have 3 wires - Red/Black/Gray and they say "TIR Ballast Flasher w/ Sync" on the back. Someone had told me that they do contain flash patterns since the lights state "flasher". I'm starting to think otherwise since I know the 3 wires it has are +, - and sync. Does anyone know if theres a way to cycle the patterns if it does actually have them. Or is the light permanently set to the one flash pattern that it fires up with. Thanks for any help

IIRC those lights are some of the first superled & synchronized lighs whelen made available. They only have 75 fpm signalalert, in phase 1 & 2.


To change the phase of the light you need to short two pads together. These pads are found on the led board, accesible after removing the outer lens.
