Mark out the hole centred on the cab roof. Drill a 2mm hole. This hole then needs to be opened out to accept the beacon vertically. Once opened to the correct diameter and angle. Feed the pair of wires through the hole, followed by the body of the lamp. Once happy with position, glue from inside the body. The wires need bringing to the centre with a piece of cellotape inside the cab roof.
RED wires go to U+ (Auxiliary Power Positive).
BLACK wires can either be connected to one AUX outputs. Then in programming each one needs assigning to a rotary beacon (found in function outputs) with a period of about 1 second.
