Beacons

pBeacons, also known as beacon lights, are electronic devices used as a signalling device to alert people of a hazardous area or potentially dangerous situation e.g. for a fire alarm system. These visual alarm devices are extremely important in industrial and automation applications as they keep people informed of what to expect and how to respond safely./ppThere are many different types of beacon lights and they all have a specific role to play in safety depending on their colour, light effect, and duration of signal or alarm./ppRS Components offer an extensive range of high-quality warning beacons from industry-leading brands including Werma, Moflash, Klaxon, Schneider Electric, Clifford & Snell, and of course RS PRO./ph3What do the different colours mean?/h3pBeacons will all have a lens colour and each colour has a specific meaning. Choosing the right colour is critical. It ensures your site runs smoothly, but more importantly allows you to keep your people safe during their working day./ppRed - Danger, act immediately./ppAmber – Be aware, warning of a dangerous situation or condition is imminent. Requires monitoring or human intervention./ppBlue – A change. Usually requires a defined action by an operator such as equipment or machinery powering down./ppGreen - Normal conditions and all is running well with no problems or issues./ph3What are the different types of warning beacons?/h3pBeacons can be categorised into five main types:/ppRotating – These types of beacons have a motor-driven reflector that revolves around a bulb that is continuously lit. They produce a powerful beacon range of 360 degrees./ppFlashing - This type of beacon technology uses internal circuitry that cycles the bulb on and off continuously./ppStatic – These are permanently illuminated with a steady light output once the beacon is energised./ppXenon – Xenon beacons contain a discharge capacitor that operates through a converter circuit inside the beacon housing. This ignites the Xenon gas inside the tube creating a bright flash of light./ppLED – These types of beacons contain a semiconductor device called a light-emitting diode. The beacon will illuminate when an electric current passes through it./p
