    No not as far as I know it strobes at some preset number.

    All I can say it that when they strobe and the horn is going off people notice and stop, or move back to the lane position they were driving.

    On the strobe on flash to pass I have never used it but it should be very effective letting someone know you are going to go by them. However I have never had issues passing anyone in my life that I can remember so I do not think I will use it all that much if at all.

    Some throughout this thread have mentioned it would be nice if the EZC software could be ported to Android/IOS, to make changes quicker/easier than lugging a portable computer.

    Also would be neat if channel status could be seen somehow. I'm sure there isn't a bluetooth module built-in, that would be neat (future version?), but if the status data could be ported out through the USB port via a basic protocol, so us techie-geeks could use it. An Android/IOS app would be fabulous for this too.

    I just hooked up the Rigid D2 H/L (High/Low, with the High wire connected). Bought that option before I found the ezcan. The lights only work on 100% intensity and act like strobe lights when you dim them. Sent an email to Rigid to enquire about whether these H/L lights can be dimmed.

    So you must not have the OEM LED lights.

    Did you try hooking the low and high beam wires together to the 12v positive of the EZcan light channel? Some led bulbs don't like to be dimmed.

    Thanks for the feedback. Out of interest, do you find it useless because it is hard to take out and put in, or is there another reason?

    We've tested with the Rigid D2 and SR-M lights and in our experience both work well, but we haven't tested with any of their dual intensity lights.

    Can you please tell me if the ezcan is a potentiometer or a waveform type dimmer for lights? I have a set of Olympus long throw 30 watt pod lights I like to use with the ezcan. Olympus says they are dimmable with a potentiometer type but not a waveform type. Btw, I've twice used the contact form on your website to ask this...no replies to either time.

    The ezCAN uses a "waveform type dimmer," i.e. PWM (pulse width modulation).

    Regarding the web contact form: we've been swamped with enquiries about the ezCAN and doing our best to get back to everyone. That doesn't excuse not getting back to you though - we'll keep pushing to improve this.

    On my ezCAN, the plug is not a tight fit and I fear will soon be lost - also a bit of a challenge to install with my dyslexic fingers due to its small size

    Hi all. So I installed Rigid D2 H/L with an ezcan [bought the d2 H/L before finding out about ezcan] and they are NOT dimmable. When using the wheel to change brightness, e.g., high vs low beam intensity, they just strobe. I talked to Rigid and they told me that the Rigid lights cannot be used with a dimmer. Obviously some of you have them running, which leaves me totally confused about which of their lights are or are not dimmable. Is there a difference between the D2 Driving and the H/L versions (hooked up on High)? I ended up making them work (non-dimmable) by using the Low cable on the Orange (at 10A) and the High cable on the yellow and white (for left and right). This required to change to the second configuration on the ezcan. However, this leaves me out of luck to hook up brake lights, as the Red 10A channel is for the horn in that configuration.

    A friend now wants me to install an ezcan on his GS LC and I don't know what lights to buy now. What exact Rigid D2 models do those of you who got it running have?

    Thanks!

    Update for fellow inmates, I did get an email reply from Hex today. The Ezcan is a waveform type so my
    Olympus led lights won't be dimmable with it. Back to the drawing board...

    FYI,a member on BMWSporttouring forum reports that the Ezcan works fine with Denali D4's.
    Good news for me,as that's what I'm running.

    Now to just get time to do the install,plus add Skene Photon blasters and a decent horn(which I have on hand)

    Why not just hook them up on the dimmable light channel but configure the channel to be on full power both day and night and high and low. Then just don't use the wheel to dim them.
