As an addition to the GT Manufacturing LED beacon range, a new Twin LED beacon has been developed for increased visibility in bright sunlight with more than double the luminous intensity of the original QUASAR®.
The QUASAR®-R Twin LED features either a rotating or flashing pattern easily selectable by grounding the function wire, allowing users to change the flashing pattern with an in-cabin switch, removing the need to open the unit.
It is extremely robust, tolerant to severe vibration levels and very compact in design. Equipped with a high impact and shock resistant polycarbonate lens bolted to a heavy-duty cast alloy base, it is sealed by a neoprene O-ring against dust and water ingress.
The QUASAR®-R Twin LED warning beacon is maintenance free with no moving parts or fragile bulbs. LED beacons are highly efficient, delivering up to a 70% energy saving over conventional beacons. This greatly reduces both operating temperature and demand on the vehicle’s electrical system.
Maximum service life and light output of the high intensity LEDs is ensured by integrating the heat sinks into the cast alloy base. The Multivolt™ control module encapsulated directly into the base also protects the QUASAR®-R Twin LED against damage from overheating, reverse polarity and short circuits. (See technical section for more Multivolt™ information.)
The QUASAR®-R Twin LED warning beacon is optimized for continuous use applications on mining equipment, to ensure highly effective warning efficiency in daylight on surface operations in the extreme environmental conditions encountered in mining applications.
The QUASAR®-R Twin LED. LED beacon is available in five LED signal colors (amber, red, blue, green and white) to suit all signal applications. Installation is possible with either the standard direct mount, or an optional magnetic mount or pipe mounting kit.
