Whelen Vertex side-mounted LED strobes give work trucks another level of visibility when in inclement weather
Side visibility is a critical aspect of work trucks and job site safety. Good strobes, well-placed, take on an even greater role when rain, fog, or snow limit visibility.
Most contractors and utility company fleet managers only think about having roof-top and front/rear strobes.
But another mounting location can also be of great help: on the truck’s front side corners.
A good strobe for that application is the Vertex Series Super-LED hemispheric LED light head (#VTX609) from Whelen Engineering.
Only 7/8″ in height, it’s perfect for most work truck applications where size and intensity are critically important.
We found these Vertex LED strobes are ideal for placing on the fenders just rear of the headlight assembly.
The self-contained strobe unit uses an in-line combination lamp driver/flasher so there’s no need to wire into a remote-mounted control unit.
Just wire in a ground and a hot lead to a switch and you’re ready to go. A third lead synches two or more lightheads, and the fourth wire changes the pattern.
This new self-contained Whelen Vertex LED Hide-A-Way strobe unit requires only a 1″-diameter hole to mount.
So if you want to maximize fleet pickup visibility and crew safety, these new dome-shaped Whelen lightheads are tough to beat.
