High-visibility, long-life signal towers use LED technology

Patlite LME and LCE model signal towers, which are available from Techdrives, feature long life and increased visibility thanks to the use of LEDs. Furthermore, the LED bulbs have energy consumption as low as 1.7W. The towers are available in a number of colour combinations and mounting options. A high enclosure level permits installation in virtually any application.

Techdrives teamed up in 2002 with the Japanese company Patlite, which has a reputation for innovation and manufacturing excellence. Patlite designs and manufactures indicator and warning systems and has captured a large share of the American and Far East markets. This alliance has opened the UK market to Patlite and enabled Techdrives to increase its portfolio of safety products.

The LME and LCE models are part of a large range of signal towers now offered by Lenze. The two towers use an LED lighting system that provides more than 100,000 hours life, which is equivalent to 11 years' continuous operation. The innovative double-reflection system enhances the LED light diffusion to create a full and brighter light, suitable for installation where bright ambient light may be present.

Manufactured from ABS resin, the light towers benefit from IP65 protection for applications in harsh environments. Both models are CE and UL compliant and are available in 24V DC supply or 100-220V AC on the LME only.

The LME and LCE towers are 60mm and 40mm diameter, respectively. Options include silver or ivory body, mounting poles, brackets, base modules with an 85dB alarm and two selectable tones. Up to five colour elements can be built in, with a choice of red, blue, green, yellow and white. The sequence of colours is open to customer choice, and can even be changed after installation.
