Whelen Engineering Introduces Arges® Remote Spotlight at PFE 2019

Savannah, Georgia, August 14, 2019 – Whelen Engineering introduced the Arges Remote Spotlight at PFE in Savannah, Georgia.

Whelen’s new remote spotlight, Arges, is designed with officer safety in mind. Engineered from the ground up and packed with Whelen’s most innovative technology, Arges will make you rethink what a remote spotlight is capable of.

Arges has a small footprint which, when combined with Whelen vehicle specific mounts, can help create zero blind spots while driving. Its all-new collision-safe control head eliminates the need for an internal handle.

Precision and Control
Arges features revolutionary control, with 360° of continuous rotation and a 180° tilt range.

Optic Innovation
Proclera® Silicone Optics are engineered to provide less light distortion and up to a 3x brighter light output, better directing light wherever it’s needed.

ProFocus™ LED technology delivers versatility with just a single optic. Switch from spotlight or floodlight with no moving parts, and customize ProFocus to meet every need, increasing your visibility in any situation.

ProFocus™ models feature a 5° spot to 60° flood variable beam width. Spotlight models feature a 5° spot. All models feature Proclera® Silicone Optics

Arges and CenCom Core™
Arges works seamlessly with CenCom Core, Whelen’s newest control system created to enhance officer safety with advanced automation. CenCom Core is powered by WeCanX™, the smartest and most powerful CAN-based communication system we’ve ever engineered.

When paired with CenCom Core, Arges can be programmed with Whelen’s newest software, Whelen Command™. Featuring an advanced user interface, Command is engineered to streamline the entire programming process and allows Arges to be programmed for optimal situational awareness.

Rugged Design
Arges features a Black die-cast aluminum housing. Its drivetrain is electronically and mechanically protected for optimal durability.

Control Head
Arges features an all-new control head with a paddle and three push-buttons. Intuitively designed, its small size provides versatile mounting options. Control multiple lights with a single controller.

The paddle rotates and tilts Arges for full control and maintains a 1:1 relationship with the lighthead. The home button moves Arges to the home position. When Arges is not in use, the home position is aerodynamic and inconspicuous. Double-tap the home button to auto-sync the controller position.

Argus installs quickly and requires no A-pillar drilling or airbag interference.

Arges Remote Spotlights are offered with a five year warranty. There is a two year warranty on the motor.
