MCBX05X05 Dual Xenon Strobe Beacon

The MCBX05X05 is a dual 5 Joule Xenon strobe beacon featuring a robust, fire retardant, IP66 & IP67 enclosure. The two Xenon beacon circuits can be connected to operate from the same power source or individually. The 1 Hz flash rate is automatically synchronised between the beacons or can be set to 'flip-flop' mode to create an alternate flash.

The 'M' series of products have been designed to withstand the harshest of environments. Constructed from lightweight, impact and fire resistant ABS, the range features stainless steel, ratchet adjustable mounting brackets and has been third party tested to IP66/67.
