What is a Beacon?

What is a Beacon?

What is a beacon? What applications would require a beacon?? Let us enlighten you!

A beacon is a purposely noticeable device that is designed to attract attention to a certain location. Beacons are undeniably one of the most beneficial devices that we have that helps not only in providing safety, but also security.

In today’s modern age of technology, beacons have been used to assist and support many different applications and continue to work well as they draw the attention required to create a safe and secure environment.

The top applications/areas beacons are most commonly used are:

Industrial/Marine Applications; for example, loading bays, warehouses, factory floor and marine ports/docks.
Since industrial and marine environments can be hazardous, it’s important to consider a product that can withstand harsh weather conditions, shock and vibration.
Within an industrial environment they also need to be bright and loud enough to be seen/heard over the machinery that may be in place.

Fire Warning Applications; for example, fitted to ceilings and doors to alert to fire exits and assembly points, pointing to the location of fire-fighting equipment.
These warning signals are usually installed in commercial buildings and other establishments that require added public safety measures such as hospitals and schools.

Automotive Applications; for example, slow moving vehicles, forklift trucks, emergency vehicles, tractors and airport baggage vehicles.
Automotive applications generally use amber, flashing warning signals however there are some instances when this needs to be changed, for example emergency vehicles require a coloured flashing light, mostly blue or red.
