Pfannenberg Offers Vibration-Resistant, Shockproof Flashing Lights & Sounders

Pfannenberg’s PATROL, PYRA and DS series Flashing Lights and Sounders meet the highest standards in terms of impact and vibration-resistance in a range of different protection classes. These devices have passed vibration tests conducted under DNV-GL guidelines. DNV-GL certification assures the operators of our signaling devices that they are of the highest quality and reliability.

Product Advantages

Outstanding impact and vibration-resistance
Our DNV-GL-certified signaling devices are impervious to vibration, jarring and impact. Their PCB components are attached very firmly to prevent damage from vibration. Furthermore, they are fitted with metal brackets which absorb or attenuate oscillation and vibration.

Higher resistance to impact and shock
In heavy industry or logistics, for example, signaling devices are exposed to particularly high levels of mechanical stress. For applications in these and other challenging areas, we offer DNV-GL certified signaling devices which also have IK08 protection classification. Even without a protective cage, they resist high levels of mechanical stress and are guaranteed to function reliably at all times.

Dust and water resistant, UV-stable, heat tolerant and frost proofed
Many of our DNV-GL-certified signaling devices are equipped with other features such as aluminum housing and have high protection classifications such as IP 66 or IP 67 which means that they are impervious to strong jets of water and short periods of immersion in water and to aggressive media. All this qualifies them for use in particularly challenging conditions.

Easy and safe planning: Pfannenberg Sizing Software PSS
Our Pfannenberg Sizing Software (PSS) is a cost-free and very user-friendly tool which delivers an immediate and informed recommendation on devices, avoiding expensive over-specification and risky under-specification at the planning stage or in a review of the configuration.

Immediately see device performance for a given space: Pfannenberg 3D Coverage
Our signaling devices are outstandingly efficient. The 3D-Coverage planning method along with the Pfannenberg Sizing Software provides reliable values for the length, width and height of the area guaranteed to be covered by the signal in relation to different environmental conditions.

Pfannenberg Quadro-LED-Hi : New Multifunctional Light for Industrial Applications

The NEW Quadro-LED-Hi visual alarm device is used to notify of hazardous situations and to indicate the status or fill level of machines and systems. Possible application areas include the operation of industrial machines and systems, building safety and controlling traffic on factory premises. The optical signals of the lights are created with LEDs delivering a high level of luminous efficiency.
Thanks to robust mechanical construction and categorization in high protection classes (IP 66, IP 67 and IK08), the Quadro-LED-Hi is suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Modular in design and multi-functional, these visual alarms are cost-effective, versatile and powerful signaling solutions.
“The Quadro-LED-Hi has everything an industrial light needs: not only a high light intensity but also wide coverage area thanks to its well-thought-out design. Furthermore, it is extremely robust. Neither aggressive environmental conditions nor driving rain, or condensation can effect its performance. With many functions and combination options, industrial companies can cover a wide range of applications with one flexible lighting solution which can be adapted to their requirements,” says Carsten Hippler, Signaling Product Sales Manager at Pfannenberg.
Powerful signaling

The luminosity of the Quadro-LED-Hi can be adjusted up to 75 cd. However, luminosity is not a sufficient measure of the effectiveness of a signaling device.

The actual coverage area under real environmental conditions is much more decisive and this has been shown for the first time with Pfannenberg’s 3D Coverage Approach. This takes account of factors such as the type of alert and the positioning of the device.

This method indicates that, used with a clear cover, the signaling coverage of the Quadro-LED-Hi is as follows (width/height/depth):

  • Information applications – 49.5 m x 47.5 m x 36 m
  • Warning applications – 22 m x 21 m x 16 m
  • Alerting applications 11 m x 10.5 m x 8 m

Versatile in use

Users can adjust the operating modes of the LED light at any time within a flexible range of options: continuous blinking frequencies at 1 Hz /2 Hz and flashing frequencies at 0.1Hz / 0.5 Hz / 0.75 Hz / 1 Hz /2 Hz. The Quadro-LED-Hi is even more versatile used with a multi-voltage power pack. There is a 24 V variant with a functional range of 11 V to 60 V (DC) and a 230 V variant with a functional range of 90 V to 253 V (AC) at 50/60 Hz. The lights are also equipped with an inrush current limiter. The Quadro-LED-Hi is designed for ambient temperatures ranging from –40 °F to +130 °F.

Pfannenberg Signaling Alarms Notify Personnel and Community of Chlorine Gas Leak

Chlorine Gas Detection Alarm System Works as Designed

In 2015 Pfannenberg provided signaling notification appliances (alarm horns and strobes) to the North Tonawanda Wastewater Treatment Facility as part of their new Gas Detection Alarm System. On the evening of Tuesday, September 13, 2016 there was a very small chlorine gas leak. Pfannenberg’s PATROL Signaling Alarms were triggered through the system notifying plant personnel and surrounding area. The alarms could heard up to a mile away from the facility.

>> All clear given following chlorine leak (VIDEO)

Even though the leak was very minor, everyone was pleased to know that the system worked as specified, providing adequate warning. Hopefully there will never be a larger leak, but if there were then it is reassuring to know that the personnel and community will have plenty of advanced warning to the potential hazard.
