LED Obstruction Beacons from Werma making everyday industrial applications safe to operate

280 series high intensity LED from Werma
The 280 series high intensity LED obstruction beacon was introduced by WERMA following extensive development of the product with the authorities at Zürich Airport.
The result is a unique multi voltage LED Beacon which emits an extremely bright light and thus qualifies as " a Low Intensity Obstruction Light, Type "A" in accordance with ICAO Annex 14.
This approval has led to many airports around Europe installing the Beacons in a number of applications such as building warning lights and mobile apron/runway marking systems.
Better awareness of Health and Safety requirements has led to further applications being identified where this product has proved to be indispensable.
A leading UK Crane Hire Service based in Rotherham, Cranes UK Ltd, provides many types of cranes for hire and sale, many of them being large mobile telescopic cranes. In this case the operator needed to make sure that the extended jib of the crane carried a warning beacon compliant with the ICAO requirements as it was to be deployed in the vicinity of low flying aircraft.
The 280 series LED Beacon in Aviation red was easily retrofitted to the jib of the crane and allowed safe deployment on site.
The second application story resulted form Integral Systems Europe Ltd based in Gateshead needing an "aircraft obstruction beacon" for installation on the upper part of a large satellite system that is being installing across Europe.
The 280 series not only met the stringent approval criteria for the illumination of such "aircraft obstructions" but also offered virtually maintenance free operation, the LEDs guaranteeing a life of typically 50,00 hours.
