Red LED forklift warning spotlight makes safer hazardous work areas

Larson Electronics has announced the release of a 25-watt red forklift LED warning spotlight. This fixture is designed to expand safety measures in a hazardous work area by actively providing early notifications for nearby workers and pedestrians.

The EPL-TN-FKLT-RED red LED forklift safety light is an explosionproof light that produces 2,250 lumens of sharp red light while drawing just 2.09 amps from a 12-volt electrical system. This LED spotlight is designed to be mounted on the front and back of a forklift or other heavy machinery to warn pedestrians and bystanders when in the path of an oncoming forklift.

Five, five-watt red LEDs producing 450 lumens each are combined with high output parabolic reflectors to produce a narrow five-degree spread spot beam, providing a high-intensity center beam visible at night and during the day.

The housing for this unit formed from extruded aluminum, and the lens is constructed of unbreakable polycarbonate. The light is enclosed in a Class 1 Division 1 casing constructed of copper-free aluminum with a thermoset powdercoat finish. The lens on the casing is constructed of ¾-inch thermal shock- and impact-resistant tempered glass. This LED warning light can operate in temperatures ranging between –40° and 80° C. It is also waterproof (up to one meter) and resistant to dust, dirt and humidity. This LED safety light is permanently mounted with a yolk-type mounting bracket with a single through hole.
