Innotec’s LED Beacon Light is the John Deere 2020 Innovation Award Winner
The Micro Bright™ Beacon is a revolutionary new technology in the warning beacon market. The Micro Bright is 12x smaller, 10x lighter, and measurably brighter than the previous models that used incandescent or halogen lights as the standard. Even with a smaller profile, Innotec’s BoardFree technology offers a completely sealed and over-molded design with increased strength and impact resistance for the harsh environments that warning lights will experience. The Micro Bright’s patented form factor and design eliminates failures from water or dust penetration found with competitor models. The Micro Bright is smaller than a hockey puck, but just about as tough.
The Deere Innovation Award recognizes suppliers who successfully apply innovation to improve the John Deere business model with a focus on creativity, feasibility, collaboration, and impact. Projects must be in production to be considered for the award and winners are selected by a team of John Deere Supply Management employees.
According to Jon DeYoung, Vice President of Sales at Innotec, “Our Team is excited and blessed to have received the Deere Innovation Award – an award that reflects Innotec’s passion to design innovative solutions for the industries we serve. We truly appreciate the collaborative and supportive relationship we have with Deere.”
The Micro Bright Beacon is ECE R65, R10, SAE J845, and IP67 rated while also offering a choice of LED colors to meet industry requirements. Innotec offers the Micro Bright beacon in a variety of mounting options including retrofit options to replace halogen or incandescent beacon models.
