Whelen is redefining control systems with CenCom Core. With the greatest configurability, speed, and expansion yet, CenCom Core is a system created to enhance officer safety with advanced automation and remote connectivity.

All-New Design

Every aspect of CenCom Core® is engineered for performance and designed for vast configuration, allowing for access to every connector and fuse from the top of the box. CenCom Core is built to scale with your needs. 

WeCanX® is the smartest and most powerful CAN-based communication system we’ve ever engineered. Providing true system synchronization, greater speed capabilities, expanded peripheral add-ons, and full support of diagnostics, WeCanX is designed for optimal situational awareness programming.


  • Supports any combination of 99 WeCanX devices, including support for multiple
    Whelen peripherals of the same type on the same vehicle
  • All CANport signals are configurable as triggerable Events*

*Our original WeCan® only supports 8 CANport™ signals

At the heart of CenCom Core™ is Whelen’s newest software, Whelen Command. Featuring an advanced user interface, Command is engineered to streamline the entire programming process and quickly provide updates and new releases. Command can process over 65,000 virtual inputs.

Command features Situation-Based Integration and Events. With Situation-Based Integration, scene-specific functions can be created and automated, utilizing various vehicle components and signals. With Events, multiple user-defined rules can be created for specific situations and can be dependent on the state of your vehicle.

A Calm Scene is a Safe Scene

Introducing Dynamic Variable Intensity Patterns (Patent-Pending)

CenCom Core™ introduces Dynamic Variable Intensity (DVI™) patterns, an innovative series of flash patterns designed to help create an advanced level of safety to calm the chaos at nighttime emergency scenes.

Building on Whelen’s situation-based nighttime mode, DVI patterns produce safer environments for first responders by gradually increasing and decreasing warning light intensity. DVI patterns help better convey visual information to approaching motorists, clearly indicating when an emergency vehicle is parked and improving their ability to navigate around an emergency scene safely.
