• Low Intensity Type A Obstruction Light, ICAO Annex 14 Volume 1, 'Aerodrome Design and Operations', Fourth edition July 2004, table 6.3.
• Integrated solar/battery system.
• User-replaceable solar modules.
• IP68 waterproof rating.
• Available in two power supply sizes to suit various locations.
Avlite's solar powered ICAO LIOL Type A is a robust, completely self-contained solar powered LED obstruction light.
The AV310 model has four 3 watt (12 watt total) premium-grade solar modules integrated into the solar chassis, and mounted to collect sunlight at all angles. The AV410 model has four larger 5 watt panels (20 watt total) for use in areas of lower sunlight to maximize solar collection.
The solar array charges an internal battery during daylight hours, and at dusk the light will automatically begin operation.
The rugged design of this self-contained light ensures up to 12 years of reliable service with minimal ongoing maintenance. Specifically designed for the harshest of environments, this light features a 7-stage, powder-coated aluminium top, base and internal chassis in high visibility colors for daytime recognition. The rubber, extruded corners provide additional impact resistance.
The advanced light optic uses a single power LED. The tough polycarbonate aviation lens is specifically designed for use with LEDs to maximize light intensity and uniformity. The light optic is interchangeable between units, and can be replaced onsite in the unlikely event of damage.
These models can be fitted with an optional, external ON/OFF switch; this means, when in position, the light can be turned on with the flick of a switch. The light can also be fitted with an optional external charging port for charging the battery while it is stored for extended periods.
The unit can be supplied in varying color outputs to suit other applications including runway edge lighting. For military applications, the unit is also available in infrared (IR).
