    Hi Guys,

    I have just bought a pair of Vertex Illumilux. As I unloded them from the car I stepped on the cable, ripping the plug off.

    Can anyone tell me which way the wires go, alternatively direct me to someone who knows ....

    Thanks
    Fanie

    red on the extreme left and black right next to it ... leave the ones on the right side open. Push the wires in deep until it basically "clicks"

    the lights are modular so they made to accomodate various options (I suppose) ... the red/black is 24VDC so it will always only be 2 wires. Just like computer pc-board plugs, you only use the bits you need ... have a look at the small square 9 pin plugs on your motherboard next time and see how many are not connected. I was just playing and cleaning my vertex illumilux and took all of it apart ... one big piece of aluminum, 2 end caps, one piece of perspex and 3 pc-boards with 6 leds each (I have the 900) .... nice and clean now :thumbup:
