STROBING (and FLASHING) DUAL ZONE SINGLE COLOR CONTROLLER

NEW PRODUCT! December 2023. Meet the latest addition to the BOOGEY LIGHTS® family of Heavy Duty Controllers. Designed primarily for commercial, working truck applications this heavy duty LED controller is ideal for situations where you need to strob or flash large numbers of single color LEDs. A typical scenario is with wide load truck haulers, wreckers and tow trucks. The unique dual zone capability allows the lights to be segregated into two distinct lighting zones.

For example zone one might be red LEDs and zone two amber LEDs. Another option could be to assign the two zones into LEDs mounted on different parts of the truck (underglow = white, body side lighting = amber). The options are endless. Each zone can be operated independently or together. In addition to ON/OFF control, STROBING and FLASHING, there's a STEADY-ON mode that offers dimming making it ideal for recreational vehicle applications as well. All of these features are operated using the included wireless RF handheld remote.

Each zone will support up to 1500 tri-chip 5050 LEDs (20Amps) which means a total of 3000 tri-chip LEDs on a single LED controller. The operating modes include strobing, 3 burst flash and solid on. The speed can be adjusted and there's a brightness setting too. All of these features are operated using the included wireless RF hand held remote. This controller includes our Quick-Switch feature which when paired with a simple on/off switch will allow the controller to be turned on/off via a hard wired switch (mounted on the dash for example) as well.

FEATURES

  • Heavy Duty, Dual Zone, Single Color LED controller. Will work with single color LEDs. Each zone has one 12v+ and one 12v- output.

QUICK-SWITCH FEATURE

This controller includes our unique QUICK SWITCH feature which can be triggered by applying 12vdc + to the YELLOW input wire to the LED Controller. This feature is per zone. So each zone has it's own Quick Switch yellow trigger wire.

How it Works: When 12vdc power is detected on the yellow trigger wire, the controller will turn on using the last used settings for that zone. It's zone specific. If the controller is already on using the RF remote, turning this on will do nothing HOWEVER turning off this circuit will also turn OFF the controller. The same holds true for the RF remote. If the controller is turned on using the Quick Switch trigger circuit, pressing the on/off button on the RF remote will do nothing HOWEVER pressing the on/off button a second time on the RF remote will turn off the controller.

The most common use for this feature is with wrecker applications where the operator needs the lights to turn on the same way every time (e.g. 3 burst flashing at the preferred speed). Once the controller is first setup with the RF wireless remote to use that 3 burst flashing mode, it is turned off. When the controller is turned on the next time using the Quick Switch trigger (usually wired to a toggle switch on the dash), it will come on using that last setting (3 burst flashing mode in this case). In this configuration, the RF handheld remote is only used to change the operating mode the controller first turns on in.

NOTE: You do not have to use this feature if you don't want to. If you aren't going to use it, just be sure to cap the two yellow trigger wires (one per zone).

VIDEO

Here's a video showing the controller in action on this wide load lowboy trailer. Yeah, we know the video isn't very good but hopefully you get the idea. In this application we mounted our heavy duty LED strips (one red, one amber) on the mechanical arms of this lowboy trailer (one set facing forward, one set facing rear-ward). The strobing controller is secured to the bottom of the trailer and pulls power off the running lights. This way the trailer lighting system is independent of the tractor pulling it. Zone 1 = red. Zone 2 = amber. The RF hand held remote has more than enough range to reach the tractor. This particular customer hauls wide loads in multiple states where the requirements change for either RED or AMBER to be used. This single color dual zone strobing/flashing controller was exactly what they needed.

 

AMPERAGE

While these controllers are rated for a specific number of LED's your particular installation may affect the actual number of LED's you can run on these controllers. Be mindful of the amount of amperage you’re drawing through your lighting circuit and to not exceed the circuit component limitations. The amount of power (amps) you’re pulling through the circuit will vary based on a combination of three factors: 1) The number of LEDs in the circuit, 2) the amount of copper wire in the circuit and 3) the input voltage to the circuit. The amperage ratings for our controllers and LEDs assume 12.5 vdc input or less. If you're wiring your lights to a vehicle that has a charging mechanism (e.g. alternator), the input voltage will likely increase when the engine is on; particularly as RPMs increase. It's not unusual for an alternator to charge the battery at a rate of 13.5 to 14 vdc depending upon the vehicle. Increasing the input voltage to the LED Controller/LEDs will also increase the amperage draw of those LEDs because they’ll burn brighter.

MOUNTING LOCATION

All Boogey Lights® LED Controllers are designed for use on all kinds of motor vehicles in all kinds of weather. They are water resistant and can be used outdoors. They are not however water proof. They should not be submerged in water or subjected to direct water contact for long periods of time. It's certainly OK for them to get wet though. For longevity and best performance, we recommend mounting the LED Controller in a location that will be protected from the elements and in particular, direct water contact. Note too the LED controller should be mounted in an area where there is sufficient air flow around the box to keep it from over-heating. This is particularly true if the number LEDs you have connected to the controller is within 25% of the controller's maximum capacity. The more LEDs you add, the hotter the LED controller will get particularly as it approaches maximum capacity.

The Boogey Lights® Single Color Strobing LED controller is a wireless RF controlled LED controller. Designed primarily for commercial, working truck applications that require the need to turn on/off, strobe and/or flash large numbers of single color LEDs this LED controller also has dual zone capability. The unique dual zone capability allows the lights to be segregated into two distinct lighting zones.

For example, zone one might be red LEDs and zone two amber LEDs. Another option could be to assign the two zones into LEDs mounted on different parts of the vehicle. Each zone can be operated independently or together. In addition to ON/OFF control, STROBING and FLASHING, there's a STEADY-ON mode that offers dimming making it ideal for recreational vehicle applications as well. All of these features are operated using the included wireless RF handheld remote.

This controller includes our Quick-Switch feature which when paired with a simple on/off switch will allow the controller to be turned on/off in the last used settings via a hard-wired switch typically mounted on the dash.

POWER INPUT

Amperage rating measurements for this controller assume an operating range of 12 to 13.5 vdc input. While the controller will accept up to 14.5 vdc, be aware that increasing voltage input to the LED controller will increase the amperage draw of the LEDs the controller is powering (the LEDs will glow brighter with more input voltage which means they'll draw more amperage). Be careful not to exceed the amperage ratings. Doing so may damage the controller.

The RED power input has a blade fuse and connects to the 12vdc POSITIVE pole on the battery source. It is important to insert a fuse in the blade fuse holder that matches the amperage draw of your system. Because this is a DUAL ZONE controller, it has two 20A fuses (one for each zone). The BLACK power input connects to the 12vdc NEGATIVE pole on the battery source. It's important to use appropriately sized wire gauge cable for making these battery connections. On the Dual Zone HD Controller when we know the number of LEDs attached to the system may be nearing or pushing the limit, we will use two 10AWG wires (one for each zone) each with their own fuse. It's important to take your own amperage measurements when installing your system to make sure you're within the operating limits.

MOUNTING

This controller is water resistant; not waterproof. Mount the LED controller in a location that is not exposed to water. Yes, it can get wet. No, it should not be submerged. Also, as with anything that uses electricity, heat build-up should not be over-looked. The more LEDs you connect to the controller, the more heat will build up. Mount the controller in a location that has air flow. If the controller overheats, it will shut itself down.

QUICK SWITCH FEATURE

This controller includes our unique QUICK SWITCH feature which can be triggered by applying 12vdc + to the YELLOW input wire to the LED Controller. This feature is per zone. So each zone has it's own Quick Switch yellow trigger wire.

How it Works: When 12vdc power is detected on the yellow trigger wire, the controller will turn on using the last used settings for that zone. It's zone specific. If the controller is already on using the RF remote, turning this on will do nothing HOWEVER turning off this circuit will also turn OFF the controller. The same holds true for the RF remote. If the controller is turned on using the Quick Switch trigger circuit, pressing the on/off button on the RF remote will do nothing HOWEVER pressing the on/off button a second time on the RF remote will turn off the controller.
