Marl introduces the 743 series of ruggedized, long life carriage step light
Ulverston, UK, 20 January 2009. Marl has introduced a ‘fit and forget’ solution to meet the Rail Vehicle Accessibility Regulations (RVAR) for carriage entry door step lighting, with the introduction of its new 743 Series LED specifically designed for this application.
Marl LEDs not only offer industry leading lighting efficiency, but have such long lifetimes that they are essentially maintenance-free devices. The 743 Series step light from Marl has a life time of 50,000 hours continuous illumination, equivalent to over five and a half years. This LED meets the RVAR Guidelines 1998: 6 (1) d, and is an ideal, low maintenance, energy efficient replacement for halogen type fittings. It also complies with the Technical Specifications for Interoperability (TSI) regulations for the European Railway network.
The 743 Series is supplied with a constant current driver allowing it to be connected through a rail approved power supply unit to the carriage wiring loom. Extension cables are available if required. It is housed in black anodised aluminium, with a hardwearing chrome aluminium bezel. The lens is made of toughened glass, and the whole assembly is resistant to vandalism and accidental damage.
Marl has specialised in the design and manufacture of visible LED indication and illumination components and systems for over 35 years, to customers in the electronic, power generation, defence and telecommunications industries. Its highly trained and experienced team of over 100 design and manufacturing specialists operate from a dedicated technology park in Ulverston, England and stand ready to offer its customers a solution to any requirement.
