HEEDS Light

Government pricing available. Please contact us today.

The HEEDS light is a water-activated LED beacon light intended to guide personnel to emergency air bottles in the event of a vehicle being submerged in water. It was originally designed for use by SOCOM.  The standard version has a Lithium battery and a 5-year standby life.  If the Lithium is a problem, then a newer alternative has an option for an alkaline battery (although the use of an alkaline battery will restrict the operating temperature range).  The light source is an LED, with a very wide viewing angle. This safety light complies with the 0.75cd output specification and 8-hour duration required by IMO SOLAS regulations.
