Narva's rotating beacons

Narva's new Aeromax LED Rotating Beacons are said to offer big performance and durability.

The beacons feature six, 1-watt LED’s paired with an engineered reflector designed to promote a concentrated light pattern that can be seen on all surrounding surfaces, providing additional visibility.

By comparison, traditional strobes produce directional light, which can be lost in some working environments, Narva says.

Furthermore, the new beacons feature quiet operation and CISPR25 Class 2 rating for Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) suppression that won’t disturb vital radio communications or electrical items around them.

To provide consistent and stable rotation regardless of the conditions, the single-piece reflector is driven by a software-controlled stepper motor with CISPR25 RFI protection to ensure super quiet operation with no interference to electrical equipment being used in the same area. A non-reflective back also ensures that any reflection from the sun or other light sources doesn’t cause the beacon to appear on when it is not operating.

For added durability, a heavy-duty, die-cast aluminium base dissipates heat and resists vibration and combines with virtually unbreakable polycarbonate lenses and a fully sealed and weatherproof construction to IP67 and covered by a five-year warranty.

Mounting options include a flange base and three-bolt system for permanent installations or vacuum magnetic base variants, enabling the beacons to be moved among vehicles if required. The latter option includes a 3-metre cable for use with a vehicle’s accessory socket, available in 12V or 24V options, with amber, blue or red outputs.
