Larson Introduces a New Forklift Safety Device

The LEDWL-FKLT-BLUE Forklift Warning Spotlight is designed to warn pedestrians and bystanders when in the path of an oncoming forklift. This ultra compact LED light produces a 2,250 lumen output with low amp draw, 50,000 hour service life, and 9 to 60 V compatibility providing operators with a versatile and powerful forklift warning safety light.

The LEDWL-FKLT-BLUE Blue LED Forklift Safety Light from Larson Electronics produces 2250 lumen of sharp blue light while drawing 2.09 A from a 12 V electrical system. Five 5 W blue LED producing 450 lumens each are combined with high output parabolic reflector to produce a narrow 5° spread spot beam, providing a high intensity center beam which is visible during daytime and nighttime operations. This particular unit is ultra compact at only 6" tall by 3.91" wide by 3.36" deep, which makes it ideal for applications where electrical power and mounting space is at a premium.

Standard forklift warning systems consist of strobe lights or audible alarms. Strobe lights may not always be visible with high illumination settings. The strobe lights on forklifts, depending on the position of the light, can be a hindrance to the forklift operator by reducing the visibility due to continual contrasting from the strobe light. Audible alarms, such as backup alarms, are the most disliked warning system for forklifts, especially operators and pedestrians within work forces that have to listen to this alarm continually throughout the work day. Both strobe lights and audible alarms are often ignored due to conditioning of the warning system from day to day exposure. The LEDWL-FKLT-BLUE addresses both the above issues, providing a new system that is not obnoxious and will not get on the nerves of employees, while providing the warning indication required by OSHA to keep employees and pedestrians within the work force safe.

The LEDWL-FKLT can operate in temperatures of -40°C to 80°C, are waterproof to 1 m and resist ingress of dust, dirt and humidity. The housings are formed from extruded aluminum and the lenses are unbreakable polycarbonate. The LEDs offer inherent LED resistance to shocks and vibrations contributing to these units 15.6 Grms rating of vibration tolerance.
