Crossing Signal Wiring...
Author: kg6nlw

Does anyone happen to know/have a manual for the Safetran Systems crossing signals?

I recently came into a set and a lone light as well that I want to wire up. Seems from what I can tell, they run off 12 volts, but which terminal is positive and negative?

Regards,

What do you have to go with it? Unless you have some kind of flasher relay or other method to make the lights flash, you're going to need one.

For now, it's a "constant on" light for me. Once I have a place to mount it, I'll get a relay and such.

It that case, it does not matter how you wire it with regard to your "positive or negative" question. Light bulbs don't care which way the current flows, or for that matter whether it is DC or AC power. They will light up just fine with either.

I figured as much, but since I'm hooking up to a power supply, I didn't want to fry anything.
