Strobe lights are an effective way to get light on an area quickly. They are used in a few places. Television, radio towers, and aircrafts themselves. They help prevent the collision of aircrafts. One of the high quality strobe lights we offer is the ACR MS 2000. This light is a waterproof (up to 33ft) strobe light that keeps up with extremely cold environments or long storage times. There is a new braided steel retainer that keeps the battery door from being lost. The awesome strobe is bright, compact, and durable. This specific light is a distress marker light, but we do have other options that you can see above. Strobes usually flash at a speed of about 1 flicker per second. Strobe lights are considered anti-collision lights, which makes them vital in the aircraft scene. So consider them a tool, because the use of this light can be used for a variety of different tasks. Each light serves a different purpose, so be sure to contact us with questions on deciding the right light for you.
Some other ways to use strobe lights
Strobe lights can also be used for taking motion studies from multiple images on one exposure. They can also be used for slow motion studies. The most common use of strobe lights would be in discos, although I don't recommend that for these lights. They are great for looking at repetitive events to slow them down, stop, or reverse them, all depending on the speed of the strobe of course. We do offer other strobe lights for different purposes as well. For example, the ACR-L8-3 Water Activated Personal Rescue lights is great for life vests. It has a water activated battery and can operate in fresh and salt water. The standard battery life is 8 hours and the storage life is about 5 years. This is a great option for your life vest. Did I mention that it is Coast Guard approved? Be sure to check out our other options above, as we do carry 5 different ACR products.
