LED Optical Units for Railway Crossing Warning Signals E530

Our engineering team has developed LED optical units for replacing the conventional incandescent lamps in red and white railway crossing warning signals to help the proper authorities to achieve improved railway crossing safety and reduced long-term maintenance costs.

While the power requirement of our LED modules enables five times lower power consumption at the similar optical output compared to traditional incandescent lamps, the maintenance costs will be further reduced due to the extended lifetime of the system. Expected usable service life of a LED light unit is ten to fifteen years, so forget the regular "bulb change"!


  • No "Phantom colour" effect (colored reflections from the intensive sunlight) - LED units are colorless by itself and provide red ight beam only when the power is applied to a unit. 
  • Compactness - each unit's circuitry is fully integrated into a transparent polycarbonate enclosure with a circular metal rear plate. The enclosure itself serves as a front lens. 
  • Universal connection polarity for DC applications (common "+" or "-")
