MBLD2 Multi-function LED Beacon

The MBLD2 is a multi-function L.E.D. beacon featuring a robust, fire retardant, IP66 & IP67 enclosure; suitable for the harshest of environments.

The MBLD2 LED status light & beacon utilises an array of high power Cree® LED's, orientated to optimise visibility in any direction. The beacon can be configured as a steady beacon for status indicator use, with a light output of up to 87 candela. Alternatively one of the five flashing modes, with a light output of up to 160 candela, may be used for warning applications. DC voltage versions feature three remotely selectable stages enabling multiple warnings to be signalled from one device. The UV stable colour filter enhances the light output and is field replaceable.
