    Lightforce 170 striker - polarity

    Building a foxing rig for the quad

    I have a Lightforce RM170 Striker Remote Mounted Lamp and remote handle, and the wiring instructions are vague to say the least.

    The Lightforce mounting handle instructions seem to suggest that polarity of connections are important, but the lamp has wires that are not colour coded for polarity and itís instructions make no mention of polarity.

    The bulb is , I believe, xenon, and google suggest that halogen bulbs are not polarity dependant but that HID bulbs ( whatever they are :-)) are.

    Any one any ideas?


    Thanks

    He is asking for the polarity, as stated the +ve polarity will most likely be the switched wire, deerwarden

    Conclusion

    It doesn't matter....maybe

    I went ahead and wired up the lamp on my new foxing rig and ,either I am lucky and wired it the right way round ( 50/50) , or it doesn't matter

    are you sure one of the wires doesn't have a white stripe on it? that would make it the positive if it does.
