Based in Birmingham at the heart of Great Britain, Moflash Signalling is the largest independent manufacturer of signalling devices in the UK. Formed from the Moflash Company Co Ltd in 1998, the company has grown dramatically over the last 17 years with the introduction of a number of new product lines and with the acquisition of signalling products from other manufacturers such as the Klaxon range of hooters and horns, now produced in the Moflash factory. The company produces the following types of devices: Incandescent Beacons - both flashing and static, LED (Light Emitting Diode), Xenon...

SELECTION & APPLICATION Selection & Application Audible&Visual Warning Signals The environment in which the warning signal is to be installed will determine the product selection. A signal designed for heavy industrial applications, incorporating a high decibel (dB) rating & high light intensity (20J) would not be suitable for local signalling at a control panel. Alternatively a low dB & light intensity (2J) would be ineffective for a large factory environment. Moflash can supply warning signals to cover all applications and listed below are some of the main market areas. Industrial &...

SELECTION & APPLICATION Note: Every time the distance is doubled the decibels will be reduced by 6. Note: This chart displays the theoretical decibel attenuation in perfect conditions in an open area without obstruction. In addition, the sound frequency of the signal used will have a marked effect on the decibel reading at any given point. A much lower the sound frequency will achieve a higher dB rating over longer distances (say + 3dB against this table) than a much higher sound frequency (say -3dB)

SELECTION & APPLICATION Types of Warning Signals - Visual Incandescent Beacons Produces light with a wire filament heated to a high temperature by an electric current passing through it, until it glows and creates a bright light. These lamps have been incorporated into warning beacons in the following ways: Rotating Beacons A parabolic reflector, driven by an electric motor, revolves around a continuously illuminated bulb on the vertical axis of the beacon creating a powerful beam of light travelling through 360 degrees. In general, this type of beacon has a greater degree of light output...

SELECTION & APPLICATION IP Ratings The IP ‘Ingress Protection’ rating system provides a means of classifying the Degrees of protection from dust and water afforded by electrical equipment and enclosures. The system is recognised in most countries and is set out in BS EN60529 1992 Degrees of Protection. Protection Against Solids IP 0 1 Protection against solid objects over 50mm eg accidental touch by hands Second Number Protection Against Liquids IP Test Protection against vertically falling drops ofwater Protection against solid objects over 12mm eg fingers Protection against direct sprays...

SELECTION & APPLICATION Equipment Protection Level In recentyears also the Equipment Protection Level (EPL) is specified for several kinds of protection. The required Protection level is linked to the intended use in the zones described below: The above table tells us that the surface temperature of a piece of electrical equipment with a temperature classification of T3 will not rise above 200 °C.

SELECTION & APPLICATION Type of Protection To ensure safety in a given situation, equipment is placed into protection level categories according to manufacture method and suitability for different situations. Category 1 is the highest safety level and Category 3 the lowest. Although there are many types of protection, a few are detailed below: The types of protection are subdivided into several sub classes, linked to EPL: ma and mb, px, py and pz, ia, ib and ic. The a subdivisions have the most stringent safety requirements, taking into account more the one independent component faults...
