The IQ-170 and IQ-175 Intelligent Lighting Controllers from Skene Design allow you to quickly and conveniently set the brightness of your auxiliary lights to match riding conditions.
Often auxiliary lights are too bright or have too wide a lighting pattern to operate at full power during the day or under certain road conditions. With Skene Design's innovative intelligent lighting controllers you can pre-program several different brightness settings and with the flick of a switch immediately select the desired brightness. There's no fumbling with a knob or a wireless remote trying to guess the best level.
Multiple brightness settings are available with the use of an optional, customer-provided switch. If a two-position toggle switch is used, two brightness settings may be selected in addition to the high beam override. If a three-position center-off toggle switch is used, three brightness settings may be selected. Each of these settings is adjustable from off to full brightness in 10% steps, providing very flexible and convenient control over the lamps' brightness. On the IQ-175 you can even use a momentary-contact pushbutton switch to toggle back and forth between two brightness levels. (The turn signal cancel switch on the right handlebar on BMW's can be used for this purpose.) If no switch is used, the lamps will come on at a single, programmable brightness level when the high beam is off.
The controller has two channels, each of which can power a 72 watt/6 amp load (IQ-175) or 60 watt/5 amp load (IQ-170). The two channels can be connected in parallel to power a combined load of 144 watts/12 amps (120 watt/10 amps for IQ-170). The lamps can be connected through a fuse directly to the vehicle's battery. No separate relay is required, as the controller performs this function. This simplifies wiring, eliminates extra components, and improves reliability compared to the traditional relay wiring harness.
