Our LED floodlamps are designed to last at least 50,000 hours which reduces maintenance. Savings on maintenance will be approximately $238 per year which includes bulbs and labor. The floodlight only consumes 60Wh, which reduces the power consumption by a factor of five. In two years, the electrical bill can be reduced by $240 (will vary depending on usage and actual cost per kWh).
With our surface floodlights, the pilot will see a lighted stage when beginning his descent from about 4,000 feet away. The pilot will actually see the center of the pad, not just a dim green outline that he would get if only perimeter lights were used. Perimeter lights are only marginally visible at that distance.
Our surface floodlights provide reflected light for added visibility. The surface floodlight is specially designed for helicopter landings and reflects the surface, whether it is plain concrete or painted with reflectorized paint. Perimeter lights alone do not reflect the surface of the pad.
There are two high intensity LED floodlights, each having a very wide horizontal and very narrow vertical beam spread, that are adjacently mounted in one fixture so that their combined beams are projected over a 75° broad path across the surface of the heliport. To provide uniform lighting for landing and loading activities, our floodlights are installed equally spaced around the heliport, slightly above the surface level.
Our floodlights provide uniform lighting without glare. The low vertical beam, combined with a new cover extension design, prevents blinding of the pilot and crew. The LED lamps cannot be seen, even when standing in the center of the pad (proper aiming of the floodlights is necessary).
Our floodlights can be inexpensively wired, with all the lights in one circuit, making it possible to add or subtract floodlights where indicated for the utmost in flexibility. Input voltage may be 90 to 300 VAC, 50-60Hz.
