Farmingdale, NJ - Dec 21, 2007 - Dialight Corporation has introduced a 48Vdc version of its D264 Series of medium-intensity LED red beacons for marking radio towers and other obstacles that pose hazards to aircraft navigation. Until now, the beacons had been available only in 120/240Vac fixtures.
Designed to replace 300mm 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. Using 90 percent less energy than incandescent lights, the beacon can be operated in flashing or steady-burning mode.
It is certified to FAA AC NO: 150/5345-43F and Canadian Aviation Regulation CAR 621.9 (Transport Canada) and complies with ICAO (Annex 14 - Fourth Edition, July 2004). Its unique design optimizes LED performance, resists shock and vibration, and provides 360-degree visibility, while minimizing unwanted ground-lighting effect.
