Stop and Go Loading Dock Safety Light SG20

“The “”Stop & Go”” Loading Dock Safety Light with Switch and Flasher (SG20) consists of a housing and two lamps designed for use beside the loading dock door on the inside of the building. Three leads exit the back of the light; a common shared by both lights, a hot for the red lamp and a hot for the green lamp (115 VAC also have a ground.) It includes a three way toggle switch on the bottom of the housing. Flip the switch one way and the green light comes on; flip it the other way and the red light illuminates. The center position turns the light off. The SG20 also has a flasher built into the unit. Electrical installation consists of two power leads (plus a ground for 115 VAC.)

The SG20 is also available without a toggle switch (indicated by “”NS”” in the part number) for installations utilizing a remote switch for automation of the light. When installed this way, the light can be set to automatically change colors after a door is opened. Remote switches can be obtained from an electrical contractor or installation professional; they are not offered by Tri Lite.”
