E2S, an independent manufacturer of Visual and Audible life-saving signals, has completed a significant development with the introduction of beacons having output enhancing field-replaceable color lenses and LED light sources. These latest features, previously introduced with the GRP GNEx and stainless steel STEx families, have now been applied to the popular LM6 alloy BEx family. The lenses, molded in UV stable polycarbonate for long life and toughness, with integral prismatic structure for enhanced light output, are available in a choice of colors to suit each application.
Whether on-site or in stores, being able to replace a lens without special tools is a benefit many will no doubt soon be taking for granted. The LED version beacon has a high output Cree array, orientated to optimize visibility in any direction. It is user configurable as a steady light for status indicator use, or one of five flashing modes for warning signal duties. DC voltage versions feature three remotely selectable stages enabling multiple warnings to be signaled from one device. While some “in bright daylight” applications will only be satisfied with a Xenon lamp light source, the performance of the E2S high output LED in combination with the new lens provides a practical low power with high output (effective intensity candela) option suitable for many applications.
