Tri-Colour Truckin’

We had to design a circuit for the new tri-colour light whilst keeping true to the original design of our 23 year old switch panel which uses green Hella truck switches rather than the modern LED rocker breakers. New technology from ETA has combined a relay switch and circuit breaker which is operated and reset via a 12/24v control switch, or in our case the truck switch. Added to the control switch inputs the truck switch had to be wired to light up when in the ‘on’ position.


Testing before fixing and going aloft







Fitted relay and tri-colour junction box. Now the pleasure of a few hours cable run ‘under/over/behind and why didn’t they think about cable runs when building this thing’ to the mast/deck joint.
