Q. Can you use a different lamp manufacturer with an Aeroflash power supply or vice versa?
A.

We do not recommend this procedure as it may damage the lamp or power supply.
Q. Power supply charges but no light output, how do I check unit?
A. With a volt meter, take the ground lead (from the meter) to the ground (of the unit) and using the red lead (from meter) at pin #1 (on the 3 pin nylon connector) you should have a reading of 350v to 450v output,  at pin #2 you should have a reading of 0v output and at pin #3 you should have a reading of 150v to 175v output.

Q. Do I need a dummy load resistor to a beacon flasher?
A. This load resistor is needed for the single light load and also for the longevity of lamp and flasher.
