Dialight Corp. introduced a 48 VDC version of its D264 series of medium-intensity LED red beacons for marking radio and television towers and other obstacles that pose hazards to aircraft navigation.
The beacons had previously been available only in 120/240 VAC fixtures.
Designed to replace 300 mm incandescent obstruction lighting fixtures, the beacon mounts onto standard bolt patterns, requires no additional wiring, controllers or monitors and allows simple replacement of the light engine, according to the company.
Dialight says the high-flux LEDs last longer than incandescent lights, extending replacement intervals and reducing maintenance costs; and use 90 percent less energy than incandescent lights, so the beacon can be operated in flashing or steady-burning mode.
Highlights include a cast aluminum base, stainless steel hardware and UV-resistant acrylic dome.
