Safety products: Larson Electronics has announced the release of a 25-watt blue forklift LED warning spotlight. This fixture is designed to expand safety measures in a hazardous work area by actively providing early notifications for nearby workers and pedestrians.
The EPL-TN-FKLT-BLUE blue LED forklift safety light from Larson Electronics is an explosion proof light that produces 2,250 lumens of sharp blue light while drawing only 2.09 amps from a 12 volt electrical system. This LED spotlight is designed to be mounted on the front and back of a forklift or other heavy machinery to warn pedestrians and bystanders when in the path of an oncoming forklift. Five, five-watt blue LEDs producing 450 lumens each are combined with high output parabolic reflectors to produce a narrow five degree spread spot beam, providing a high intensity center beam that is visible at night and during the day.
This LED warning light can operate in temperatures ranging between -40°C and 80°C. It is also waterproof (up to one meter) and resistant to the ingress of dust, dirt, and humidity. The housing is formed from extruded aluminum and the lens is constructed of unbreakable polycarbonate. The light is enclosed in a Class 1 Division 1 casing constructed of copper-free aluminum with a thermoset powder coat finish. The lens on the casing is constructed of ¾” thermal shock and impact resistant tempered glass. This LED safety light is permanently mounted with a yolk type mounting bracket with a single through hole.
“This new blue LED spotlight was designed to meet the demands of customers who have requested a light to extend the safety operations of forklifts within a hazardous work area,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics. “The light eliminates the need for strenuous strobe lights and audible alarms that could cause more of a distraction rather than assist with safety precautions.”
