Broadcast towers and wind turbines are among the targeted applications for a new beacon from Dialight.
The company says this is the world's first LED medium-intensity red-white beacon.
The product, it said, is designed to overcome problems affecting conventional lighting systems. “Current Xenon and Incandescent technologies are severely affected by vibration and extreme weather conditions and offer a relatively short product life that in turn leads to attendant high maintenance costs,” it stated. The new LED obstruction light is solid-state; it provides 20,000 candela flashing white combined with a 2,000 candela steady or flashing red. The beacon also reduces light pollution, the company said, with an optical design that focuses light selectively and avoids spilling excess light towards the ground.
