The latest addition to HELLA’s popular ValueFit range is the Slim Beacon, delivering safety and visibility in an incredibly sleek design with a height of just 50mm. Equipped with single or double flashing functions, the beacon is maintenance free and fully sealed and operates with both 12 and 24-volt supplies.
Impact resistance is a given and the resilient polycarbonate lens and robust aluminium base ensure that, despite its minimal dimensions, the Slim Beacon is tough enough to cope with the most arduous of conditions. It also offers an extremely high level of electrical protection from voltage spikes and polarity reversal.
In keeping with HELLA’s reputation for product versatility and to maximise the beacon’s fitting options, in addition to the surface mounted version, a second variant with a flexible tube allows the beacon to be situated in a slightly elevated position, clear of possible sight restrictions, thereby delivering the highest level of visibility. This shock absorbing and vibration damping tube also affords some flexibility to cushion the beacon from impacts.
Another considerable benefit of this new product is that alongside the standard amber lens, which conforms with specific UK legislation concerning safety and visibility of vehicles and equipment in the construction sector, a green lens version is also available. In this format, once the driver has secured their seatbelt, the green light then flashes, confirming that the operator is compliant with the latest regulations introduced in 2019.
HELLA’s complete ValueFit work lamp series, which provides a cost-effective solution that complements its premium range, is suitable for trucks, trailers, construction and agricultural vehicles and naturally conforms to the same tests and approvals, such as electromagnetic compatibility and overvoltage protection, plus vibration, temperature and chemical resistance, as more expensive offerings.
