— Second generation VisiBeam® halogen searchlight highlights
wireless remote control for improved ergonomics and greater
convenience along with exceptional illumination —
UNIVERSITY PARK, IL – Federal Signal’s newly released Wireless VisiBeam® searchlight couples wireless remote control with powerful halogen lighting performance for a clear, even light beam that is superior to anything on the market today.
The Wireless VisiBeam’s high polished reflector design and durable polycarbonate dome offer a combination of exceptional halogen lighting performance and reliability in the harshest conditions. The wireless remote control is capable of operating at over 100 feet. Advanced wireless technology provides an infinite number of key lock codes for optimum security. Heavy duty, rugged construction and industry standard beacon mounting holes make Wireless VisiBeam ideal for a diverse range of applications.
In order to focus light precisely where it is needed most, Wireless VisiBeam offers an innovative “graduated start” feature that enables pinpoint light beam placement with continuous 360-degree horizontal and 140-degree vertical adjustment.
Fitting comfortably in the palm of the hand, the Wireless VisiBeam’s oversized controller buttons permit operation even when wearing gloves. Up to four transmitters can be programmed to operate one light, making it possible for multiple users to operate the same light. A standard belt clip, designed into the back of each remote, allows users to attach the controller to belt or sun visor when not in use.
The Wireless VisiBeam controller uses two standard AA batteries (user supplied). To conserve battery life, the FCC-approved remote incorporates a 20 second time-out feature that automatically shuts off the controller after 20 seconds of unintentional transmit time. The searchlight uses a commonly available standard 100-watt, H3 bulb (12-volt model) that facilitates easy lamp replacement. Wireless VisiBeam is also available in a 65-watt, 24-volt model.
