"DUAL-COLOUR" SPARK 32 L.E.D. MICRO BEACON
L.E.D. Amber Flashing Beacons
What are vehicle beacon lights ?
Beacons are usually round in shape in either mid or high-profile heights, belonging to the primary category of warning products. Beacon lights feature both flashing and rotating warning modes and are considered one of the oldest type of warning lamps available to the automotive industry.
Due to their larger profile size, L.E.D. beacons produce a powerful and seemingly larger signal light especially when viewed at farther distances away due to clever internal optical design capturing the full power of light generated by advanced L.E.D.s.
Where is the best location on a vehicle to fit amber beacons lights?
As a primary type warning light, beacons are best fitted to the highest vantage point of a vehicle as it produces a true 360 degree warning light. Larger vehicles may require two to four beacons placed on each roof top corner of the vehicle to achieve adequate 360 degree warning capability. Temporary magnetic or pole mounted solutions are also available for Beacons to be deployed quickly and effectively.
What are the major differences between strobe, halogen rotator and LED amber beacons?
Older beacons feature halogen rotator design requiring gears and belts to oscillate a mirror reflector around a light source. This later evolved into static strobe tubes generating an intense white light but was often very hot, consumes too much current and break too easily. The latest and most powerful beacons utilize L.E.D. technology in conjunction with innovative reflector optics design to maximize the effectiveness of the light produced by long life diodes. With clever solid-state design, user-select flashing and rotating patterns, and no moving parts, L.E.D. beacon lights have a longer service life and often carry a 5 Year warranty.
