12 Feb The 2000+ lux LED Aiding Bendigo Railway: An Application Note
Located in Victoria, the Bendigo Railway Workshop has been in service for over 100 years, which during that time has led to a range of projects. The Bendigo workshop now operates under SSR (Southern Shorthaul Railroad), completing a range of maintenance and recovery services.
A railway coupling/coupler is used to connect railway rolling stock, such as the carriages of trains. In a dark environment without a sufficient light source over the coupling equipment, a safety issue is presented and therefore a need for safety equipment.
After getting to know Innovec’s high quality products through the LEDMLD – Dual Marker Light, Bendigo Railway enquired about a coupler light for their rolling stock.
The Innovec LEDCL – Coupler Light was designed with the safety of the railway staff and railway patrons in mind. With a 2000+ lux output and an IP66 rated weatherproof housing, the LEDCL was able to adequately lighten the coupler links and create a safer environment for the railway staff.
The strong light output, paired with the reliability of Innovec products, left the LEDCL as the best solution for Bendigo Railway’s safety problem.
LEDCL – Coupler Light
The LEDCL is a 12-36VDC or 55-140VDC powered LED COUPLER LIGHT supplied in a surface mounting enclosure made from Random co-polymer Polypropylene with 1% UV Stabiliser making it a suitable housing for outdoor use, with an IP66 weatherproof rating intended for the illumination of coupler equipment on rail cars and locomotives.
