E2S Warning Signals has developed a range of LED beacons for use as warning beacons and status indicators for systems installed in hazardous areas and industrial environments. According to the company, the LED units, using a multiple array of high-power white Cree LEDs, offer significant advantages over traditional Xenon strobe technology. The typical light output level from the LED units is a very bright 338 candela, higher than the 120 candela effective intensity of a 5J Xenon tube unit.
E2S LED beacons have five flash rates for warning beacon uses: 1, 1.5, and 2 Hz and double and triple flashes. They also have high- and low-power steady modes for status indicator uses. DC voltage versions feature three remotely selectable stages enabling multiple warnings to be signaled from one device.
The same light engines and control electronics are at the heart of beacons available in all the product families in the E2S range. The STEx (316L stainless steel), the GNEx and E2x (GRP), and BEx and D2x (marine grade LM6 aluminum enclosures) are all available with the new generation of LEDs providing a variety of mechanical protection, corrosion resistance, and weight to suit different environmental requirements and applications.
The polycarbonate, UV stable lenses are available as spare items in amber, blue, clear, green, magenta, red, and yellow. While enhancing light output, the lens filters are also field replaceable.
