With improved optic technology and exterior design, the next generation of Whelen’s popular lightbar is tougher than ever.
Chester, Connecticut, (June 12, 2014) - Already a favorite of Police fleets worldwide, Whelen’s Liberty™ lightbar has been redesigned from the ground up, creating the all new Liberty II. With an enhanced optic design, the Liberty II builds on the Liberty’s reputation for excellent reliability and performance. The Liberty II is available in SOLO™ and DUO+™ models and in WeCan® or Low Current models.
This new generation Liberty II is 1" less in depth, allowing for contiguous light. It features Whelen’s exclusive Collimator™ patented design which captures, collects, and focuses light for unbeaten optic output. When dwell time is extended, Advanced Thermal Design reduces the stress on LEDs.
Whelen’s DUO+ technology allows each lighthead segment to operate independently or at the same time, without loss of intensity. DUO+ models feature single color or DUO+ interleaved modules. SOLO models feature single color inboard modules.
Photocell will automatically dim the lightbar at night and still meet SAE Class 1 requirements in low power mode. Photocell is standard in DUO+ models and available in SOLO models.
The exterior of the new Liberty II has many unique benefits. The aluminum top shield repels hail and other environmental damages while directing heat away from internal components. Hard coated lenses resist sun and road chemical damage and stay clear far longer than traditional lenses. Center dividers with LIM (liquid injection molded) wiper seals assure lightbar integrity in all conditions.
At only 2.8" tall without mounting feet, the new Liberty II is designed to keep fleets inconspicuous. Low profile mounting kits are available to keep the bar close to the roof for a quiet ride.
Standard lengths: 44" (110cm), 48" (123cm) and 54" (136cm)
Liberty II SOLO models feature single color inboard modules to front and rear with four angle mounted single color corner modules. Straight corners provide 360° of warning light, meeting SAE Class 1 requirements.
Liberty II™ DUO+ models feature single color or two color interleaved inboard modules to front and rear with four single color or DUO+ interleaved corner modules. Angle mounted corner modules provide 360° of warning light, meeting SAE Class 1 requirements.
Complete customization is possible with color filters and a variety of alley and take down light options. An optional rear single color or DUO+ Traffic Advisor™ is available.
The Liberty II is offered with Whelen’s five year HDP® Heavy Duty Professional warranty.
