What does performance test EN50293 mean?
You may have come across it before, the performance test EN50293. It relates to certain lighting in traffic. Not only for on the road, but also for off the road lighting has a huge contribution. Most people take part in traffic every day. That is why it is important that there are different requirements and rules regarding public roads. Most rules are intended to increase road safety. It is therefore not surprising that products used in traffic have to meet strict requirements.
LED flashlights are widely used in and around traffic and therefore also have various requirements laid down by CROW. CROW stands for Centre for Regulations and Research in Ground-, Water- and Road Construction and Traffic Technology. These requirements include the safety standard EN12352 and the performance test EN50293. The LED flasher may not be used on public roads without complying with these.
What are flashers used for?
You have probably already come across a flasher. Flashers can be found on action windows or action frames. Action windows are often used when working on the road. Slow moving vehicles also sometimes use action frames. The signs indicate that you can pass on the left or what the new situation is. To make the action frame more visible, flashers have been mounted in the corners. The flashers make it easier to see the sign.
