Optronics International has introduced of a new family of LED warning and beacon lamps.
The lamps employ a solid-state, surface-mount device (SMD) design that protects their electronics against moisture, shock and vibration, and the lamps come with Optronics’ one-diode lifetime warranty protection, which will replace any lamp if even one diode fails.
The new lamps meet Class 1 and CA Title 13 requirements. The lamps also meet their respective Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) standards: SAE J595 governs directional flashing optical warning devices and SAE J845 governs omnidirectional optical warning devices. As Class 1 optical warning devices, these lamps are for use on a wide variety of authorized vehicles, to alert pedestrians and motorists of potential hazards relating to the presence of utility trucks, wreckers and many other types of work trucks.
The entire family of LED warning and beacon lamps is designed for multi-volt applications and supports both 12- and 24-volt vehicle electrical systems, Optronics says. The lamps operate in a temperature range of between -22 Fahrenheit (-30 Celsius) and -122 Fahrenheit (-50 Celsius). The LED warning lamps have an IP67 rating, and the LED beacon lamps have an IP65 rating for dust and water resistance.
Warning lamps come in three sizes and are available in single-color, dual-color and tri-color models, offering 70 to 140 possible flash patterns. The lamps feature an aluminum housing and a polycarbonate lens, and the rugged beacon lamps are available in 5.5- and 7-inch heights and feature 30 selectable flash pattern modes. They come complete with 9-foot cords, 12-volt power plug and switches.
