Dialight Launches Beacon with Sharpest Cut-Off Beam in the Industry

Dialight takes light control in the U.S. to the next level to meet the same stringent standards as in Europe by applying its patented Accubeam LED optic technology to achieve almost zero light pollution from its medium intensity red beacon.

Farmingdale, NJ - March 19, 2009 - Applied LED technology specialist Dialight now manufactures its D264 Series LED based medium intensity red beacon in the U.S. utilizing state-of-the-art optical design to achieve the most compact, efficient, FAA compliant L-864 device in the market while also meeting the stringent light pollution requirements of ICAO. Dialight's patented optic creates the sharpest cut-off beam in the industry to achieve almost zero light pollution at ground level while ensuring that 2,000 candelas are still visible to aircraft.

Dialight's D264 Series high flux LED based beacon is designed to replace 300mm incandescent obstruction lighting fixtures and uses 90% less energy. Resistant to shock and vibration and with a 5-year performance warranty, it lasts years longer than incandescent fixtures and its robust, low power design makes expensive maintenance a thing of the past.

The compact D264 Series beacon, which can be flashed or steady burned and weighs less than 32 lbs, is designed to mount onto existing bolt pattern installations and allow simple replacement of the light engine. With a cast aluminum base and stainless steel hardware, the UV resistant acrylic dome is sealed to withstand the dynamic conditions experienced in the most severe environments around the world in temperatures from -40 to +55 Celsius, direct sunlight, wind blown rain, wind in excess of 150mph, high humidity and salt fog.
