Engineered to maintain situational awareness of the officer, Whelen’s CenCom Carbide™ houses numerous innovative technologies that deliver highly effective visual and auditory warning.

Designed for simplistic, hands free usage, Carbide allows officers to easily adapt with Situation Based Integration. This feature allows for scene specific functions using various vehicle components, such as the horn or brakes. Priorities can now be fully configured
and controlled.

Carbide provides the capability to sync all lights together, including a Traffic Advisor™ and the new rear WeCan® Inner Edge® RTX.

Easily reproducible from vehicle to vehicle, Carbide installs effortlessly with little wiring intricacy.

Optional expansion modules and WeCan dual siren amplifier are available to further customize functions.

The CANnect™ CAN Interface is a simple plug-in connection to the vehicle. Using the CANnect,
CAN bus signals are easily applied to automate warning system functions.
