This exceptional durability ensures a long lifespan, even in rugged environments.

What sets the Ascencioné-Defense™ flasher apart is its outstanding performance, surpassing competitors by a wide margin. It is the only transistorized flasher specified as standard original equipment (OE) in the heavy-duty truck industry. With its exceptional track record, this flasher has gained a reputation for being the most reliable and cost-effective flasher available, making it the preferred choice for military vehicles.

Largest electronic flasher builder

Ascencioné-Defense™, as the largest electronic flasher builder globally, ensures superior quality and reliability in their products. The 1100 Series transistorized flashers feature Nar-tron’s exclusive filter circuitry, providing failsafe operation in demanding conditions. These flashers can handle a rated load of ten 32-candle-power lamps or 25 amperes resistive at 12.8 volts DC. They can flash from one to ten lamps and are non-load sensitive. The flasher’s output is normally open, and its weatherproof high-impact case ensures durability in various weather conditions.
