LED Strobe Addresses Safety and Security
Larson Electronics has announced the release of a permanent mount LED beacon that is both waterproof and shock-resistant, and offers 360 degrees of visibility. This strobe light features a triple strobe light pattern and 18 LED bulbs providing a total of 252 lumens, and operates on 120-277V AC.
The Larson Electronics LEDB-4-1227 is a compact LED beacon that produces 360° of illumination. This unit contains 3 modules, each containing 6 LEDs, that are specially mounted within a clear Fresnel lens. This configuration produces a full 360 degrees of signal radiation. The LED is offered in white, blue, green, amber or red, allowing users to choose the appropriate color for their operation. A special triple flash makes this beacon perfect for work, industrial, utility and security applications that need an efficient and noticeable notification light.
This compact unit is powered via a 120-277V AC VAC power source and includes a step down transformer allowing users to power the 12VDC device in high-voltage locations. 16 feet of cable is included with the beacon, equipped with the customer’s choice of connector. This waterproof and shock-resistant beacon is constructed of cast aluminum and has an unbreakable polycarbonate lens that is resistant to vibration and impact.
"This strobing LED is compact, rugged and features a triple flash pattern,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics. "The triple flash design makes the beacon a good option for notification systems and security because it is more noticeable than standard flash configurations."
