New Product Annoucement: Programmable dimmer for auxiliary LED driving/fog lights

Advance Notice for ADV Rider Inmates:

Many auxiliary LED driving & fog lights are too bright for oncoming traffic when run at full brightness, yet need to be switched rapidly to full power when road and traffic conditions require and permit this.

Skene Design, developer of Photon Blaster and P3 Lights, now has a solution. Our Intelligent Lighting Controller allows you to program your aftermarket LED lights to operate at any desired intensity when in low power mode and switch immediately to maximum power when the high beam is activated. If an optional toggle/rocker switch is added, then three independent brightness settings are supported.

The controller not only controls the LED's brightness, but also serves as the relay for either two separate LED lights of up to 30 watts each, or a single light of up to 60 watts.

This product is now available here:

Please see this thread for information on a product that does exactly that:

Sorry about breaking the rules, however I regard our relationship as more of a partnership than a competition.

This new dimmer design, which the vendor himself said he was not going to build, will help him sell many more lights.

This should save a lot of work for everyone. Sounds like what I was about make myself. Can't wait to see how compact it is. Can you post a sneak peak pic? I'd rather buy it than make it, so you're timing is perfect.

Would this work with heated gear? Same principle, no?

Yes, it will work for heated gear, but there are other solutions out there that I think would be better suited to the task.

I think you said if you're using a handlebar switch you can have 3 settings (Lo and Medium with handlebar switch and Hi via OEM Hi-Beam light switch)
With a three position switch, you can have three independent brightnesses, including off. Switching on the high beam always sets the lights to maximum power.

I have a standard 2-position switch (On/Off) what would give me one setting (brightness level set by your unit) and Off, ist that right? And Hi of course by switching on the high beam. This would work just fine for me since I'm using the LED's always at one setting during the day and I'll switch to high (not that often) with the hi-beam switch.

A two position switch will give you two different settings. Each setting can be programmed to be from off to maximum brightness in 10 equal steps. A three position switch will give you three settings.

The high beam switch is an override, providing maximum power to the lights.

The IQ-170 Intelligent Lighting Controller is now ready to ship.

I know we promised this release for January 19th, but we received so many emails on it that we sped things up a bit.


You can see full details on this innovative new product here:
