Introducing the newest addition to the revolutionary Lamplighter™ line of scenery lighting.
**The Starter Kit includes: Lamplighter FL, power supply, 20 fiber connector pins, and 60ft of fiber**
With the addition of the Lamplighter FL (FL stands for Flashing) box you will now have the ability to not only illuminate your scenery to give it sparkle and depth, but also to create animated effects to give even greater interest to your art work.
The Lamplighter FL uses exactly the same ‘lighting without wiring’ approach you have come to enjoy using the identical fibers as used with the Lamplighter 1 and 2 boxes.So now in addition to providing street lamps and illuminatingareas of your layout, you can get your emergency vehicles flashing, add flashing railroad crossing lights, put a blinking light on top of a tall building or on a buoy …you can allow your imagination to run wild.
Providing 8 ports with individual lighting attributes, with 2 fibers per port, the Lamplighter FL box gives you a total of 16 lights from the one unit.Lights can be used in 2 different modes, either flashing or blinking.The flashing frequency can be varied over a large range.The duration and frequency of the blinking functionality can also be varied to provide lighting blips or long pulses.
Control over the unit is achieved in one of two ways - either through a key pad on the box or through DCC.From the key pad and LCD display you can determine exactly how each port will function (this is stored in the unit once it power is removed).Alternatively, the unit can be attached to a DCC controller so you can issue all the instructions needed to turn ports on and off and determine their functionality.This unit incorporates state of the art control through DCC.
Activation of all the ports can also be determined by triggers that you may have installed or want to install on your layout.So now you can install a railroad crossing with flashing lights and have it triggered by the proximity of an on coming train; that could also activate brake lights on a car at the crossing for added realism.
The Lamplighter FL allows you to connect 3 different sizes of fiber - 0.75, 1 and 1.5mm diameters.This allows for different amounts of light, flexibility of fiber and accessibility to very small areas.
This addition now allows you to use fiber optics for all of your scenery lighting without the need to do wiring.
