LED technology in the smallest space

Date: Friday 15 October 2021

HELLA, the lighting and electronics expert is launching the smallest homologated beacon to date. With a height of just 68 millimetres, the K-LED Nano offers LED technology in the smallest of spaces, which makes it particularly suitable for municipal vehicles, tractors and large vehicles that have to comply with a height restriction or have little mounting space available.

The K-LED Nano uses flashing light to generate a long-range, amber warning signal to alert other road users and secure work sites. For this purpose, it has a particularly high light intensity, for which it has European ECE standard R65 Class 1 approval and American SAE standard J845 Class 1 approval.

"With the K-LED Nano, we are bringing a powerful beacon onto the market that optimally complements our portfolio and can be used flexibly," says Ani Stepanyan, Product Manager at HELLA.

HELLA offers the beacon in three different surface mounting variants. With a bolt circle diameter of 130 millimetres, the standard version covers the usual HELLA mounting points, enabling a one-to-one replacement, if an upgrade to LED technology is desired, for example. On request, a slim version with a diameter of 109 millimetres is also available for vehicle manufacturers and in addition, customers can also obtain a variant with flexible pipe socket mounting. Here, the shock-absorbing and vibration-damping base tilts briefly by up to 45 degrees and even cushions strong impacts.
