Redtronic are a UK manufacturer that specialise in designing vehicle warning and safety solutions for emergency and safety services. Today, Redtronic have launched the brand-new Star-M1 R65 Covert LED Directional, which is an industry first!
The Star-M1 is an extremely small, ultra-bright warning light that is specifically designed to fit in compact areas of the vehicle and is designed primarily to be integrated into vehicle wing mirrors, front and rear lamps or pod mounted internally on the windscreen and rear window. This product is the ideal solution when a discreet covert light is required. The new Star-M1 is design registered by Redtronic (Reg. Des. 008317283-0001).
This versatile product can be fitted in almost any desired location thanks to its innovative small design and IP rating. This product features one ultra-bright LED, meeting R65 Class I approval in blue (four units required per vehicle), multiple unit synchronisation, two-year warranty, seven flash patterns, inhibit feature to disable blue light when indicator is active and guarantee no risk of backflash.

Steve Redfern, Technical Director at Redtronic said: ‘The Star-M1 is a small but mighty product from Redtronic. We have developed a product that gives extraordinary light output but has also been carefully designed to be discreetly covert. There are plenty of products in the market that flash and have different mounting options but none quite like the Star-M1. We wanted to simplify the installation process as this is critical for many of our customers as technology systems become more complex and space becomes an issue, especially if the vehicle is intended for covert operation – all of the products are hidden away. With our industry-first micro-designed Star-M1, installation of this product becomes less of a complex task to find space for the product and its mounting hardware – the Star M1 requires only an 8mm hole for the LED to fit and the ultra-small body can be held in place with fast-curing silicone, so no screws or space for them are required. Our latest innovation also comes with a built in inhibit circuit for when the Star-M1 is fitted in wing-mirrors or headlights to temporary disable the flash whilst the indicator is active. To reduce limitations of where the Star-M1 can be mounted and function, our engineering team were able to design Redtronic’s latest innovation to IP69K meaning that our product can be mounted internally and externally without the worry of water ingress.’
