X501-500 Industrial Xenon Flashing Beacon

The X501-500 series are suitable for industrial signalling applications where a very powerful signal is required.

These beacons are of the Flashing mode type (single stage alarm) Xenon beacons (sometimes called strobes) are controlled via a PCB and put out a very brief but very bright flash of white light by ionizing and then discharging a large current through the xenon gas. The design allows for termination inside the enclosure.

This range of beacons incorporates an internal Fresnel lens designed to maximise the light intensity and has a double flash option (activated by a jumper link on the PCB) that extends the signal duration making it more noticeable to the human eye.

The DC unit is factory set at 24v but a jumper link on the PCB can change it to 12v operation. The DC version is also supplied with a bi-lateral current limiter that must be used on all installations to protect the PCB from inrush current damage. Due to the power rating of the beacon it is not recommended for use in excess of 12 hours in any 24 hour period.
