RAINLIGHT 3 HIGH INTENSITY LED

The Rainlight 3 is a high intensity LED based light with CAN connectivity for motorsport applications. 

The light is activated via a control signal input. Flashing speed and intensity are adjustable and diagnostic information is available via the CAN bus.  Default mode (without CAN link): The light flashes at 4Hz when the Rain Light input is switched to supply voltage. The bright period intensity will be at 90% and the dim period intensity will be at 5%. CAN base ID and other parameters are configurable.
