LED aircraft obstruction lighting
With FAA certification for all tower and aircraft obstruction heights, the new Vigilant obstruction lighting line provides lower power consumption, smaller size, less wind load and lighter weight. The L-864/L-865 dual medium intensity red/white strobes are offered in the same small and lightweight housing as the L-864, which results in a 5-pound weight reduction. This generation of LED obstruction lighting also adds the red L-864 beacon that is 25 percent smaller and 22 pounds lighter than the previously white-only version. Dialight’s Vigilant beacons and strobes are the first product line to be fully tested and verified by Intertek ETL to the 2012 Transport Canada CAR 621 specification. With the use of diamond-cut tooling and Dialight’s patented reflector-based optics, the new lights provide an absolute razor sharp light cutoff that essentially eliminates light pollution. Ruggedized for harsh conditions, the strobe is designed for operation in ambient temperature range of -40 degrees C to +55 degrees C and is highly resistant to lightning, vibration and shock.
