Designed to suit the harshest conditions on earth!

The BF Series represents a new generation of LED beacons, LED twin beacons, and LED microbars. Constructed from premium materials including die-cast alloy, polycarbonate, ABS, and stainless steel, BF Series beacons are designed for durability, class-leading heat management, and intense light output for maximum conspicuity.

The latest in powerful high-output LEDs, intelligent heat sinking and thermal management, plus advanced computer designed lens optics, all work together to keep everyone safe while letting you focus on getting your work done.

Ranging from 18 watts to 180 watts, there’s a shape, size, and output to suit virtually any application. Almost all products in the BF Series range come with the highest possible EMC ratings (EMC: ISO13766, EMC: ISO11452–4 and ISO11452–2) and are SAE Class 1 tested and approved (SAE J575, SAE J578, and SAE J845). All BF Series beacons and microbars are IP67 rated against dust and moisture, plus come standard with a two-year warranty.

Highest standards from around the world!

The Britax BF Series LED Beacon range has undergone a series of tests and certifications by accredited laboratories. This ensures that the BF beacon you install on your vehicle or machinery will not only be bright enough to protect you and your investment, but will also stand the test of time against vibration, moisture, dust, corrosion, and even electrostatic discharge! Below are the different standards and ratings that the various beacons in the BF Series range have been tested to and certified­; in many cases far exceeding the minimum requirement.

Britax Beacons featuring this icon fully comply with all SAE Class 1 standards:

icon-sae

SAE Class 1 is the highest possible standard for omnidirectional emergency warning lighting, but it’s more than just light output. The beacons are subjected to intensive colour and photometric testing as part of the standard, however crucially, a beacon does not pass unless it ALSO passes a series of mechanical and environmental tests as well.

Only when a Britax BF Series Beacon passes ALL testing is it then certified as SAE Class 1.

Britax Beacons featuring this icon fully comply with ECE Reg 65

Icon ECE Reg 65

ECE Reg 65 is a European standard that covers labelling, light output (intensity and dispersion), flash rate, and colour for beacons, lightbars and directional warning lights. Reg 65 also takes into account durability during normal conditions of use, water resistance, and operation in temperatures between -20ºC and +50ºC.

Britax Beacons featuring this ISO13766 icon comply fully with the EMC standards:

icon-emc-ISO13766-spacer

EMC ISO13766 is the highest possible standard for electromagnetic emissions, electromagnetic radiation, and protection against electrostatic discharges. This standard is now the minimum requirement used by many heavy machinery manufacturers (including Komatsu) when producing and testing new machines.

  • Broad band Electromagnetic Emissions 30Mhz-1Ghz
  • Narrow band Electromagnetic Emissions 30Mhz-1Ghz
  • Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) ISO10605
  • Emission of Conducted Disturbances ISO 7637-2
  • Immunity of ESA to electromagnetic radiation ISO11452-4 and ISO11452-2

Britax Beacons featuring this icon comply fully with ECE R10

icon-emc-ece-r10

ECE R10 is a European standard for automotive electronics that covers a varitety of testing including RF immunity and emmisions, plus transient immunity and emissions. The standard also covers a requirement for burst, surge, harmonics, and flicker. In addition to this it has requirements for electrical vehicles.

Beacons in the Britax BF Series featuring this icon are IP67 rated
