824 Multi Strobe Beacon

Medium-profile Double or Quad Flash Strobe

The model 824 family is a medium profile, multi-flash strobe light which can be changed by the customer from double flash to quad flash operation. It features universal mounting, full size 360° Lexan® lens, high efficiency regulated solid state power supply, and heavy duty xenon strobe lamp. DC units have polarity protection and built-in filters to protect against radio interference and spike voltages. AC units are designed to withstand multiple line transient spikes of 6000V without damage. The model 824 strobe features a fully potted, Lexan®, multi-purpose mounting base which is vibration and water resistant, and has a plug-in strobe lamp and photocell which can be activated to automatically reduce intensity during nighttime operation.

Architect and Engineer Specifications

The visual signaling beacon shall be Tomar model 824 or approved equal. The light source shall be a plug-in field replaceable xenon strobe lamp. The beacon shall have a field selectable double or quad flash rate of 68 to 72 double flashes per minute, or 58 to 62 quad flashes per minute. The warning beacon shall have a Lexan® lens and universal mount base. The DC voltage units are to have polarity protection, and must have built-in RFI filters to protect against radio interference and spike voltages. All beacons must have fully potted power supply and base. The AC units shall be designed to withstand multiple line transient spikes of 6000V without damage. Light intensity is to be 950 effective candelas in double-flash mode, and 1300 effective candelas in quad-flash mode. Voltage ranges shall be 12-28VDC, 120 VAC, and 240VAC. Strobe light shall be designed to accept a dome guard and mounting bracket.

*ECP (Effective Candlepower) is the intensity that would appear to an observer if the light were burning steadily.
**Peak Candlepower is the maximum light intensity generated by a flashing light during its light pulse.
