Pulsed LED Beacons

Pulsed beacons are commonly used to warn of dangers or to signify an alarm. They work by an electronic circuit inside the beacon that controls the light source; turning it off and on constantly according to the flash rate set by the end-user, for example, 120fpm.

Here we shall take a look into the Pros & Cons of Pulsed LED beacons:
