Federal Signal’s Model 121S is a compact, rotating warning light designed for in-plant use. It features a parabolic reflector which rotates around an incandescent lamp, providing 60 flashes per minute in all directions. 

Federal Signal’s 121S comes ready to mount on a 1/2-inch NPT pipe or surface mount. Optional brackets simplify installation on walls or in corners (see pages 128-131). The enclosure is also rated Type 4X for a water-tight and dust-tight seal. 

The lamp projects an intense, fixed beam onto a parabolic reflector which rotates 360°, producing 60 flashes per minute. The 121 features a twist and lock dome which allows for fast and easy access to inspect and change the lamp. 

This light is particularly useful as a signaling or warning device in high ambient noise areas where it can supplement audible signaling devices. It is also effective alerting for hazardous conditions or dangerous areas. 

Federal Signal’s Vitalite is an economical rotating warning light for emergency warning or status indication in noisy areas.
