Carbide feature upgrade expands functionality & simplifies installation

The latest improvements to CenCom Carbide™ make installation easier than ever, while adding even more options for the end user.

We’ve added a Flash Pattern Override checkbox, which allows installers to program an override lighting pattern without complicated rules. Override programming means simpler operation in the field, so officers can keep their focus on the road.

Our new, highly intuitive state navigator essentially doubles the number of possible button functions in any vehicle, including a whole set of functions enabled by the “off” position.

For example, with Hands-Free Lighting, just pressing a button or the horn pad can change the siren tone and lighting pattern from Wail with SignalAlert™ 75 to Yelp with DoubleFlash 150 to Piercer with SingleFlash 300.

The Carbide upgrade also allows input naming, so installers can label buttons in the configuration software – so programming choices are easier to spot and remember.

Our new CANport™ CAN Bus interface is integrated into the software, making it
easy to program additional functions through any supported vehicle’s CAN Bus network.
