GL1500 PathBlazer Headlight Modulator
Couldn't load pickup availability
This is a PathBlazer headlight modulator. It is made by Kisan Technologies and is designed to modulate the headlight bulbs for better visibility. This is a complete plug and play unit and meets federal DOT standards in all states. The New model will work for both halogen bulbs and LED bulbs. There is a switch on the unit that you can select which bulbs you are running. This will fit all Goldwing 1500's from 1988-2000. 150GW, 150GW-LED
150GW unit is designed specifically for the Goldwing 1500 motorcycles. It plugs in-line with 4-pin harness connectors. It's slim enough to fit besides the headlight assembly.
MAX power rating is 100 watts or 50 watts each bulb., which is sufficient for the stock 45W bulbs. DO NOT EXCEED! If you have 60/55 watt bulbs in your headlight, purchase the KIP115W-D modulator instead. That one will handle wattage up to 115 watts.
BOTH headlight bulbs will modulate together as synchronized. Side-to-side (or wig-wag) flashing is reserved for Police or Emergency vehicle use only.
150GW circuit modulates the hi-beam current - from 100% ON to about 17% OFF. This is accomplished by using a p-channel MOSFET, which is inherently safe; the MOSFET is designed to fail in the ON state. For additional safety, the circuits DO NOT utilize the lo-beam whatsoever!
150GW comes with a detachable daylight sensor, which simply plugs into the pathBlazer. The daylight sensor functions as a switch; it stops modulation when it cannot see enough daylight. Since the internal circuitry is controlled by a microprocessor, it allows for customizable features.
Programmable Daylight Sensor
If you turn the high beam on and then turn the ignition on three times quickly, the sequence is interpreted as an active command to change the sensitivity.
Software version v.820D allows two settings: High and Low.
Software version v.823A allows 8 linear steps between the high and low end.
pathBlazer uses a soft switching technique, which throttles the current flow through the bulb filament, so that there's no "thermal shock" - as opposed to a sudden inrush of current, which can damage the bulb filament or shorten it's life considerably. This is far superior than maintaining a small voltage!
The daylight sensor has a low frequency filter to avoid false triggering. Please note that florescent lamps may not trigger the sensor - it needs constant incandescent light.
Select hi-beam to modulate - as long as there's sufficient daylight. If you enter a tunnel or if it gets dark, it will stop the modulation of the hi-beam and stay ON steady. Select lo-beam to end modulation.
You have complete control.
