Cyclops Light

The safety luminaires of the series “Cyclops” are innovatively manufactured with a matrix of LEDs of high luminosity. The brightness range is between 250 and 1000 lumen depending on the model.

All models provide effective illumination for long and narrow corridors and escape routes. The innovative design enables chassis to be implemented in the form of heat dissipation surface. This allows direct contact to the LEDs panel, resulting in easy heat- flow to the environment. Three distinguished characteristics also are incubated to this unique model. First comes the waterproofness grade of IP66. Second comes the quick mounting and releasing base. And third the axis with horizontal and vertical rotation capability, Up-Down from -90 to +90 degrees and Right-Left from -70 to +70 degrees of angle, resulting in a wide perimeter coverage. All the above advantages become a new standard in many cases where flexible safety lighting is required.

Cyclops comes in three models that cover power supply voltages CBS and ADR demands: (CLP-200/CBS/WP/230V), (CLP-200/CBS/WP/24V), (CLP-200/CBS/WP/24V/ADR)
The Construction materials are ABS/PC, PC.

The “Cyclops” is the latest offering from Olympia Electronics in adjustable emergency lighting for large areas. The light source illumination is between 250 and 1000 lm, depending on the model.

The “Cyclops” is comprised of an innovatively designed chassis that cools the high luminosity-equipped LED matrix, offering a long lifespan for the emergency luminaire. The IP66 rating of the “Cyclops” is suitable for protecting heavily polluted areas or outdoors, providing the required illuminance to industrial areas. The highly adjustable mounting base enables a range of motion from -900 to +900 vertical and -700 to +700 horizontal. This adjustability makes the “Cyclops” emergency luminaire suitable for large and hard to illuminate spaces, such as airport halls and warehouses.

The “Cyclops” emergency luminaire is constructed in three main variants, depending on the power supply voltages and addressable options:

  • CLP-200/CBS/WP/230V for 230V AC CBS
  • CLP-200/CBS/WP/24V for 24V DC CBS
  • CLP-200/CBS/WP/24V/ADR for Addressable 24V DC CBS

The “Cyclops” is constructed with ABS and PS thermoplastics and complies with European standards for emergency lighting.

Cutting-Edge Firefighter Safety Innovations from MSA

MSA Safety has always been a pioneer in modern safety equipment and technology. Recently, the company launched new solution LUNAR a breakthrough technology for firefighter safety, to enhanced safety of fire and rescue services these days involved in increasingly complex and unpredictable fire and rescue operations.

LUNAR is a small and wireless multi-purpose search and rescue device created to provide additional levels of protection for firefighters. Versatile in design, LUNAR uses Cloud technology to deliver breakthrough fire-scene management capabilities for incident commanders and can be used as a stand-alone device or as part of an MSA SCBA system. Key features include:

  • Exclusive Firefighting Assisting Search Technology (F.A.S.T.), which combines distance and direction data enabling firefighters to locate separated teammates faster;
  • Personal thermal imaging enhanced with edge detection for improved situational awareness;
  • Direct cellular cloud connectivity to send real-time stats, including estimated air pressure, time remaining, and battery life, to Incident Command and remote monitoring personnel for a complete safety point-of-view; and
  • A unique LUNAR-to-LUNAR network that automatically keeps each device connected to all others on-scene.

LUNAR is designed for every firefighter on-scene, both those on air and off, and represents the latest addition to a suite – or ecosystem – of MSA products the company has branded as “Connected Firefighter.” When used together, MSA’s suite of Connected Firefighter products create greater visibility, increase efficiency, promote situational awareness, and enable accountability, all while creating an enhanced network of safety.
