The Ziztel ZAB1-M2 is a rugged explosion proof electronic flashing beacon which employs xenon light sources to selectively produce brilliant pulses of visible coloured light.


The Ziztel ZAB1-M2 is a rugged explosion proof electronic flashing beacon which employs xenon light sources to selectively produce brilliant pulses of visible coloured light. The unit is specified for safety applications where acoustic alarms are ineffective due to excessive ambient noise and provides effective high performance visual warning annunciation. ZAB1 – M2 can be specified for use on safety critical applications as part of a PAGA Public Address and Alarm System. ZAB1-M2 is designed for reliable service on both land based and marine / offshore installations. The ZAB1-M2 beacon can be equipped with up to two different colour sources within the single housing realising major cost savings over conventional discrete multiple beacon arrays. IMO SOLAS / PFEER colour set is available i.e. Red – Yellow. Colour is assigned by specially designed Fresnel optical lens which provides highly efficient light dispersion. The unit is capable of initiating colour selection by a two-pair control cable which also includes mains power supply or ZAB-M2-A can be specified allowing energisation with control over a single pair of field cable conductors. The maximum number of devices on a single circuit is dependent on the cross-sectional area of the field cable conductors and maximum volt drop tolerance, we advise no more than forty units on a single circuit in any case to improve security. The unit utilises a totally corrosion proof stainless steel construction which minimises routine service and ensures low through life  maintenance cycles.


  • Totally corrosion proof all stainless-steel construction – long through life, minimal maintenance.
  • Optional colour selection over 1 x pair cable – major cost saving over conventional multi core-based systems.
  • No moving parts - microprocessor controlled.
  • Multiple light sources – Duplicated xenon discharge tube sets for each colour – choice of flash energy - 10, 15, 21 Joules.
  • Zone 1 ATEX and IECEx certified - safe for use in hazardous areas.
