Lighting for emergency vehicles could be available in plenty of varieties including visor lights, dash lights, mini light bars, single beacons, corner strobe lights and flashlights. Each of these has their own purpose and light intensity and hence comes good for different scenarios. LED lighting is extremely reliable compared to other light sources. Part of the reason for this is that LED lights do not go out abruptly like most other light sources. Rather they get dimmer and dimmer over a period of time, providing plenty of opportunity to replace them in preparation for emergency scenarios.
One of the most popular lighting fixtures for emergency vehicles is the beacon. In terms of functionality, there are two kinds of beacons, the fixed ones and the gyrating ones. The mounting technique is also different. The best variety of beacons comprise of those which can be mounted easily on the roof of any vehicle with the help of powerful magnetic mounting systems which are vibration resistant up to speeds of 50 – 60 mph. These beacons operating on 12 24 V DC sources can flash up to 100 times in a minute. They are also manufactured with multicolored dome casings, which help in emanating multiple colored beams of high intensity to send a cautionary signal across 360 degrees.
emergency vehicles can also use dual purpose dash lights with super bright LEDs assembled together. Each of the LED units is accompanied by suction cup mount and loop adhesive mounting for flat surfaces. The compact lights also have flashback shield which comes to good use even when the lights are deckmounted. A single light alternately flashes in different colors, most popular being red, amber and blue.
