An all-weather LED obstruction beacon from WERMA
16 May 2013
The new LED based 281 obstruction beacon from WERMA provides reliable warning, even in the most extreme condition, thanks to its robust construction.
The powder coated aluminium, die-cast housing provides effective resistance to salt water, fuels such as aviation kerosene and UV radiation. The lens is made of toughened borosilicate glass for maximum durability.
Using the latest LED technology, the 281 beacon is virtually maintenance free. The LED lights have a life typically in excess of 50,000 hours, or approximately 50 times the life of conventional bulbs. Not only does this offer a significant cost saving in terms of lower running costs, but also means that operators will not have the additional costs of replacing defective light bulbs.
The beacon has been extensively tested by the marine and shipping authorities in Germany to validate brightness and colour and has been awarded appropriate certification.
The 281 meets the requirements of the "General Administrative Provision for the Identification of Aviation Obstacles" in Germany, and the specifications of the international civil aviation organisation ICAO ("Low Intensity Obstacle Light, Type A").
The beacon is easy to install – simply feed the cable through the cable gland and attach to the terminals whilst the two housing parts are held loosely together with a retaining strap. It is available in two voltages: 230Vac and 12-50Vdc.
