Narva has expanded its unique-looking AeroTech range of strobes/rotators with the recent addition of brighter and more durable heavy duty models to the line-up.
Designed and engineered in Australia, the new range was developed with local conditions and applications in mind, combining superior lighting performance, eye-catching looks and rugged construction to produce Narva’s most visible strobe.
AeroTech heavy duty strobes combine high-power LEDs, precision reflectors and optics, as well as a larger footprint and taller profile than the original Aerotech strobes, delivering light that’s up to six times brighter than SAE Class 1 requirements for rotate and flash patterns. Narva said this performance ensures superior visibility even in extremely bright conditions.
Also helping visibility is the lamps’ unique ‘trilobular’ shape, characterised by a greater front surface and tapering from the front to the back of the lamps which improves aerodynamics, resulting in reduced in-cabin wind noise.
The lamps also feature an integrated light sensor that automatically switches the strobe between high and low power modes, ensuring the lamps are not too bright for other road users, workers at night, or during low light conditions. For added flexibility, a switch allows the user to alter between modes manually if required.
Narva said attaining high level durability was an important goal when designing the new AeroTech heavy duty LED range. To achieve this, the lamps use diecast aluminium bases that make the lights more resistant to vibration and shock, allowing them to pass IEC 60068-2-64 vibration testing and ISO 16750-3 mechanical shock testing. Additionally, the lamps have been put through the more stringent military spec vibration test, MIL-STD-810G.
Also helping the lamps’ longevity are ultrasonic welds that seal the strobe from water and dust, allowing them to meet IP67 and the more demanding IP69K, which means equipment can be pressure-washed at high heat without concern.
AeroTech Heavy Duty’s solid-state circuitry also removes moving parts to eliminate mechanical failures, while the lamps’ “virtually-unbreakable” polycarbonate lenses include Makrolon 2607, a material resistant to UV. The lamps also meet CISPR 25 Class 3 standards for EMC, ensuring there’s no annoying electrical interference in the cabin.
Amber models are available in two heights (100mm and 160mm), whilst additional colour configurations (green, red, blue and blue) are available in 160mm height with clear lens, making them suitable for a wide range of industries and applications.
For added flexibility to fit a range of vehicles and equipment, an adapter plate is also included with every lamp, allowing the use of existing bolt holes made for traditional strobes or beacons.
The AeroTech heavy duty LED line-up is backed by a seven-year Narva warranty. The lamps are available from leading transport, construction, agricultural and trade outlets nationwide.
