strobe install

    For any professional or semi-professional installers out there I have a question. I have a Whelen 690 strobe power supply. I have installed it before and ran seperate wires for the multiple function. ie, strobes 1+2, strobes 3-6, hi/low and pattern change. I believe that these are all low power turn on leads, as there is a battery connection in addition to the switch leads, so is it possible to just run a 3 or 6 wire strobe cable from these leads to the switches or will a standard strobe cable be too small of a guage? Thanks for the help in advance!

    We use the Strobe Wire, from the Power Supply to the swiches and have never had a problem

    Strobe cable is plenty big enough.

    i figured it was, thanks for the input! I plan to put switches up in the panel above the mirror and don't want to run a mess of several wires!
