COMET S presented for the first time at GPEC in Leipzig
The GPEC General Police Equipment Exhibition & Conference® opened its doors from 7 June to 9 June 2016. GPEC is Europe’s largest specialist trade fair for visitors from the authorities and other fields of public safety. The focus here is on police equipment, safety technology and services.
Hänsch was once again exhibiting at this year’s event and took advantage of this platform to present its new COMET S LED beacon to a broad specialist audience for the first time. Whether fixed mounting, stand mounting or magnetic fixing, the various designs of the COMET S LED beacon offer a solution to meet every requirement.
Feedback from trade fair visitors was extremely positive. Visitors were particularly impressed by its flat design with a total height of 85 mm, maximum luminous intensity (class II approval) and a fully illuminated light dome, all of which provide optimal visibility.
This year, Hänsch had another stand space located opposite the main trade fair stand, where a VW Passat with products for covert police operations was on display. Alongside the SPUTNIK SL front flashers, trade fair visitors also had the opportunity to examine and get hands-on experience with the CAN 447-ready products, LED sun visor and rear stop signal generators, MOVIA SL, TFA 624 signalling system, as well as an HBE 300 manual control unit.
As a result of the flat design and consequently reduced overall height of the vehicle, the DBS 5000 enjoyed enormous popularity in the transport sector, where stop signal generators tend to be fitted externally. The modern design and wide-ranging field of use also fascinated trade fair visitors.
Furthermore, the tried and tested DBS 4000 was also on show once again at all reputable vehicle manufacturers. Trade fair visitors were able to get an overview of the different fields of application for the DBS 4000 as soon as they stepped into the entrance hall, where two police vehicles and one customs vehicle by Mercedes (C-Class, Vito, Sprinter) were on display with the DBS 4000. The Mercedes Benz Sprinter was symbolically presented to the BMI (Federal Ministry of the Interior). Further orders and deliveries of the DBS 4000 are planned for the near future.
All in all, the specialist for optical and audible warning systems can draw very positive conclusions from the GPEC. Over the course of the trade fair, Hänsch was able to make new contacts both nationally and internationally, hold some fascinating conversations and build further upon existing business relationships.
As part of the 2016 trade fair season, Hänsch is still due to appear as an exhibitor at the IAA Commercial Vehicles Show in Hannover from 22 September – 29 September 2016 as well as at Florian in Dresden from 6 October – 8 October.
