Keeping The Power Flowing at This Year’s Winter Olympics

08 April 2018

These panel mount LED beacon and buzzer modules from Auer helped keep the power flowing at this year’s Winter Olympics in South Korea. Installed in mobile generator control panels the units were carefully selected to give an audible visual warning when fuel levels are running low.

The LED beacon can be configured through the wiring connections to be steady or flashing and the buzzer to be continuous or pulsing tone. This feature has been utilised to give operators a 2 stage warning of fuel levels. Flashing LED and pulsing tone for low level, steady LED and continuous tone for critical level.

As the beacons were located outdoors in a cold environment then ingress protection and temperature rating were key considerations. These were satisfied by the lower operating temperature range of -25°C along with IP65 protection rating.

Any concerns about hearing the buzzer during operation in a potentially noisy environment were eliminated thanks to a sound pressure rating of 103 dB (A).

High performance LED’s offer great performance and lifetime making these beacon sounders suitable for a wide range of industrial applications.

• Operating temperature range -25 to +60°C
• Ø65 mm panel mount buzzer beacon
• High performance steady or flashing LED
• Configurable 3 tone 103 dB buzzer
• Ingress protection IP65
