In loud offshore environments, visual indicators are needed for effective emergency communication. According to the UK Offshore Operation Association, "Visual warnings in the form of high-intensity flashing beacons should be provided in areas subject to high ambient noise to supplement the acoustic alarm signals." Telcom & Data, a leader in offshore technology, recommends Cooper’s XB13 flashing beacon.
The XB13 flashing beacon is constructed to meet rigorous offshore requirements. Tough corrosion resistant GRP material makes the beacon impervious to the harshest outdoor conditions. The device is fully weatherproof and can operate in temperatures between -40°F to +131°F. Various colours are available, making the product adaptable for different signaling purposes.
When Ricardo Trinidad, president of Telcom & Data, was asked about the beacons, he said, "Cooper Industries is one of the most trusted names in emergency communication. I am happy to carry these beacons because they are rugged and reliable. And they are absolutely critical for safety in loud offshore settings."
