HOW IT WORKS
When mounting the Aux Lamp Controller, electrical contact must be made between the vehicle's chassis/earth and the metal case of the Aux Lamp Controller at its mounting points. 12v Power Input is supplied to the Aux Lamp Controller via the M6 electrical stud. Power Output connections are made using 6.3mm spade terminals.
Each channel is turned ON by connecting the corresponding channel signal wire to chassis/earth. Connection can be made using dashboard switches, oil pressure switches, thermo-switches, etc. When a Cartek Switch Panel (pushbutton switches with integrated LED) is used then the LED will display the channel status:
No LED = Channel OFF
LED on = Channel ON
Flashing = ERROR
When short-circuit or over current is detected, the Aux Lamp Controller will shut down that channel and the corresponding LED will begin to flash. To reset the error, switch the channel OFF then ON again.
