Code 3 has announced its latest Matrix Enabled lightbar, the Covert. Measuring only 1.6 inches high, the Covert features dual- or tri-color LED light heads and offers improved off-angle performance.

"The Covert is engineered to withstand tough conditions and reliably perform a variety of jobs," Code 3 says. "The build and materials set this lightbar apart from the competition." The Covert has thicker lenses and stronger frames so that it can resist wear, tear and warping, extending the overall service life, the company adds. The lens also includes an upgraded design to reduce moisture build-up, ensuring clear light output even while working under extreme weather conditions. Additionally, a built-in photocell can be used to trigger dimming functionality, improving visibility at night. There is adequate space available in the lightbar housing to install an emitter and solar panel. 

Available in nine lengths and five top-cover colors, the Covert can be customized for a variety of applications. The dual- or tri-color light heads can be fitted with combinations of red, blue, white, amber and green colors. "Limitless" flash patterns are available. The patterns can be easily configured and synched with other Matrix-compatible products using the intuitive software interface.

Code 3 says Installation is easy with multiple mounting options available and a simple CAT-5 connection to the Matrix Z3 Siren or serial interface box (SIB).

The Covert offers a durable and reliable solution for agencies that require a robust, low-profile emergency warning system, the company says. "Code 3 understands that each fleet has unique operational needs. Not only can customers configure their lightbars to order, but the tool-free chassis allows for quick reconfigurations throughout the lightbar’s duty life. The Matrix software provides fleet managers complete control to program flash patterns and functionality based on vehicle actions."
