Grote 7620?

Very curious about this beacon. I have a real soft spot for four beam beacons, so this one caught my attention mostly because I can get one NIB for pretty cheap. I've seen a few on YouTube and two of the three seem to have a rather high rotation speed while one had a nice and slow rotation speed. What I really want to know is if this beacon is a Grote rebrand. If so, I'm guessing a Fed Sig beacon. If this is the case, did this beacon come in fast and regular speed variants? Also, if I wanted to find replacement domes for this beacon, what could I replace them with? I want to replace one with a clear dome, but am having trouble finding replacements. Any info about this beacon would be very much appreciated!

From what I've read, Grote beacons have nothing in common with Federal Signal, and are often regarded as a lower quality, economy product. Grote domes are taller than most and not interchangeable. They're currently produced in amber only.

They have a few rebranded products, mostly Whelen Responder LPs and a few other LED minibars IIRC. I'd posted about a red Grote single rotator beacon that I have and replies said that it's a rebranded FS Model 100. The vendor that I was looking at has it for sale in blue, amber and red. Have to call for pricing for red and not a fan of amber lighting much at all, so I figured that I'd go with blue and hopefully find clear domes. That concerns me that the domes aren't interchangeable. Looks like I'll pass on this beacon. I'd rather spend the money on something more worthwhile, in every sense. Thank you everyone for your info! It saved me a few bucks!
