Flashing beacons are used in electronic home security systems and in cars as devices of indication, alarm and warning. Moreover, their appearance and “stuffing” are often not distinguished from beacons (special signals) emergency and operational services.
On sale are classic indicators, but their inner “filling” is striking in its anachronism: they are made on the basis of a powerful lamp with a rotating Chuck (a classic of the genre) or lamps of the type IFK-120, IFCM-120 stroboscopic device that flashes at equal intervals of time (pulse lights). Meanwhile, in the XXI century, when there was a triumphal procession very bright (powerful light) LEDs.
One of the fundamental points in favor of replacing incandescent and halogen lamps with LEDs, in particular in the flashing lights are the larger resource (uptime) and the lower cost of the latter.
The led chip is practically “Neubauer”, so the resource unit mainly determines the durability of the optical element. The vast majority of manufacturers use to manufacture various combinations of epoxy resins, of course, with different degrees of purification. In particular, because of this, LEDs have a limited resource, after which they begin to get cloudy.
