    I have both of the instruction sheets that you sent me the links to. The question that I have is the plug that comes off of the Rota 4 switch that has the red, green and brown wires,,,which of these wires do you connect to which of the six wires on the power supply wiring harness ( the harness has yellow, orange, blue, green, white and brown wires coming out of a plastic plug that plugs into the power supply ) ???

    THANKS for all the help.

    If you like, please e-mail me your phone number and I will call you. jerryt@kenton.com or my home phone is 419-674-1717.

    Thanks, again !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :drinkup:

    Violet on power supply to center pin on low power switch(top pin to ground, bottom to +12v tied to power on for strobe pack)

    Blue and Green(Or one or the other, depends on the config you want, heads activated) on power supply to center pin on on/off switch(Top pin to ground, bottom pin to +12v)

    Yellow and Orange(or one or the other, depends on how random you want it) on power supply to a +12v

    White on power supply to +12v if you want the system to random change heads that flash together

    Brown on power supply to +12v switch to turn on or off Chaos mode(changes head pairings after every firing)

    The Rotary switch is completely useless for this power supply since you can't change patterns. So there for any of the wires coming out of it are not used.

    Make sense?
