Or Akiva, Israel, January 2010. Meprolight today announced new features of its Electro Flare heavy-duty LED-flashing device. Originally designed for the specific needs of law enforcement agencies, Electro-Flare can be used in virtually any emergency situation that calls for temporary marking as a safety precaution.
Electro Flare, which conforms to NATO MilSpec requirements, has been specifically designed to cope with hazards such as accidents, lane closures, traffic diversions and other occasions when traffic management needs to be fast and responsive.
Electro Flare’s trampling resistance was enhanced, making it an ultra-robust device that can withstand vehicle run-overs. In addition, the light intensity was highly increased and the bright signal emitted from this rugged, lightweight and weather resistant unit is visible from long distances under all weather conditions – one kilometer on a clear night. The signal is emitted by 36 large and super bright LEDs, flashing at once, replacing the smaller 48 LEDs in the previous version, Electro Flare is activated by turning it upside down and the signal can be emitted now at 90, 180, 360 degrees or top emission only. The user can use wide choices of colors and color combinations (10 possibilities) to meet local regulations.
Electro Flare emergency light modules are housed in a robust, fully weatherproofed case of three or six light modules that also acts as a recharging unit. This can be run from a wide range of light to heavy duty vehicles (10-36 volts) or from mains electricity. Electro Flare is completely charged in three hours, and enables 10 hours of continuous use with a fully charged battery. In the new version of Electro Flare, the charging condition is shown on each flare, not only on the charging box. The charging box can be placed vertically, saving space, unlike the previous version when it was limited to horizontal placement only.
For sensitive areas that need to be marked out, there is also an infrared version.
“Electro Flare is an ideal piece of rugged warning and lighting equipment that can be rapidly deployed. It is a modern alternative to magnesium flares, eliminating the risk of fire and health,” said Golan Kalimi, Meprolight’s Vice President Marketing. “Thousands of Electro Flare units are used by law enforcement agencies in the UK, Italy, Belgium, Spain, Israel and other countries, and the charging connections are adjusted to the various types of police and security vehicles.”
