The strobe light and Emergency vehicles go hand in hand, but there are other types of vehicle that could benefit from the use of strobe lights. Farm vehicles could possibly need strobe lights to warn they are on the move as many are slow moving, the same with construction vehicles. Many municipal vehicles do have strobe lighting on them for the same reason, they need to warn the general public that they are on the move and could stop at any time. A single strobe light is very useful for volunteer fire fighters or doctors on call as they can be attached and removed from vehicles easily. Heavy slow moving plant machinery often has several strobe lights dotted about to act as hazard warning. The thing about strobe lights is they have been around for many years. Certainly Dr. Harold Edgerton used the strobe light to huge effect in photography to capture movement. It's probably thanks to Dr. Egerton that strobe lights became so well known so he could be credited with bringing their use into the wider world. Stroboscopic lights are certainly effective and it's a testament to their effectiveness that they are still in use today in the emergency lighting business. How does a strobe light work? In short the strobe lights provide illumination by giving a series of short bright flashes, similar to a camera flash. strobe lights have two main electrical components, a capacitor and a voltage source. What happens is the voltage source builds up a charge in the capacitor to produce a spark. The capacitor is mounted in a gas-filled chamber so the spark in the chamber jumps from one side of the capacitor to the other producing bright flashes of light. The flashes of light are certainly effective and although lighting technology has moved on the use of strobes is still common. strobe light units aren't just single stand alone light units they can come in a variety of different light units and bars. Today LED bulbs are being utilized in strobe lights to give them enhanced brightness. As a secondary warning light for any kind of vehicle the strobe is ideal, even as a hazard warning light you and I could use the strobe would be useful. The use of strobe lighting may be restricted in your state so before you rush out and buy one as a hazard light do some checks first. In the main strobe lights serve to warn others and we all associate them with hazard and danger. One of the other areas strobe light is used is in the entertainment business. Clubs, theatres and bars use strobe lights to very great decorative and showy effect. Of course the strobe light is still used for photographic purposes and it goes some way into showing just how perfect they are at what they do. The different applications of strobe lighting make it one of the most versatile and easily recognizable lights on the market today. strobe lights are here to stay for the foreseeable future because they are still extremely useful.
