Narva has released a new range of Optimax LED Rotating Beacons at a price point that’s similar to lower performing halogen products
Narva Optimax LED Rotating Beacons have broken through the price point of lower performing halogen lights and will give users the durability and many benefits that LED technology is known for.
And to prove that point, these latest release Optimax beacons were engineered with tough local conditions in mind and have been extensively tested by Narva and independent accredited labs.
LED technology is inherently more reliable than halogen, with LEDs achieving a life of over 50,000 hours compared to only around 650 hours for a standard H1 globe.
In demanding applications, extreme vibrations can also damage lighting, but in the
case of the Optimax range, the beacons have been vibration (IEC 60068-2-64) and mechanical shock (ISO 16750-3) tested.
In addition, aiding the lights’ durability is a diecast aluminium base and a virtually unbreakable polycarbonate lens that’s UV protected.
For added peace of mind, the Optimax line-up has also been tested and certified to IP67 for dust and water ingress, making the lights suitable for use in wet and dusty conditions.
This latest release Optimax LED range provides an extremely high light output that is two times brighter than SAE standards.
This ensures high visibility and added safety for on and off-highway applications including civil works, roadside assistance and agricultural work.
The impressive output is generated by 6 x 5 watt high power LEDs and an innovative reflector optic design, that also assists the Beacons to produce a smooth rotating pattern, further aiding visibility while allowing the lights to meet Heavy Vehicle Regulation 2013 No.77.
As a comparison, the Optimax range offers visibility similar to halogen beacons with large 55W or 70W globes, but with a fraction of the current draw. This latest Optimax range also debuts Australia’s first dual colour LED rotating beacon.
There are some brands that claim to offer dual colour strobes, however none provide the smooth rotating pattern of a true rotating beacon. The Optimax dual colour beacon can be switched between two colours depending on the application.
For example, some sites require green output when working at low speeds but amber in other situations, so Optimax eliminates the need for two beacons while still producing a rotating beacon pattern.
Other benefits of the Optimax LED Beacon range are that they are rated 10-33V and have over-voltage protection to ensure no failures due to voltage spikes. Such spikes are a common occurrence that can easily blow a halogen globe.
Additionally, the Optimax range is equipped with a stepper motor that provides stable rotation speed; many halogen beacons use belts to create their rotating pattern and these can fail resulting in downtime.
With Flange, Single Bolt, Pole, Flexible Pole and Vacuum Magnetic mount options to suit agricultural, civil and municipal applications, the Optimax range is versatile.
And as with all Narva warning lights, it’s available fitted to utility or mine bars, allowing the user to customise the bar with accessories to suit their requirements.
Optimax also offer a lower profile design than halogen counterparts, making them less likely to suffer damage from knocks on the job site.
This latest release Narva Optimax LED Rotating Beacon range is backed by a generous 3-year warranty on both LEDs and the rotating mechanism, and is available from leading construction, agricultural and transportation outlets nationwide.
