Runway threshold portable solar lights

Portable Runway Threshold End Light

Portable Runway Threshold End Light

Runway mobile lights are perfect for all the places where the installation or work of permanent lights is impossible. They are quick and easy to install and allow for carrying out flight operations even in the most remote, hard-to-reach places. Today, we will elaborate on runway threshold portable solar lights.

Regulations ofRunway threshold lights

Runway threshold lights, besides edge lights, are the most important element of runway lighting. Thanks to these lights, a pilot can identify both the beginning and the end of a runway. Just like any other lights, runway threshold lights need to meet the ICAO regulations (International Civil Aviation Organization), Annex 14. Moreover, the systems used in the United States of America need to meet the requirements of the FAA (Federal Aviation Agency). Lighting used at European airports are adjusted to the following standards: EN 61000-4-2:2009, EN 61000-4-3:2007/A2:2011, PN-EN 61000-4-4:2013-05, EN 61000-4-5:2014-10, EN 61000-4-6: 2014-04.

Type and color

Runway threshold lights give out a two-directional light. They are green in the landing spot and red in the place the landing operation should end. The lights play a key role in places where it is difficult to identify the beginning and ending of a runway due to other lights in the surroundings.

Runway threshold solar lights

As it was said at the very beginning, runway portable lights are used in places that lack in infrastructure or are hard to reach. In such cases, runway threshold solar lights are often an optimal solution. They need 8 hours for full charging. After this, they can work for 36 hours!

The use of runway threshold portable lights

Where exactly is runway threshold portable lighting used?

  1. As a non-instrument temporary lighting,
  2. As non-precision instrument temporary lighting,
  3. To mark a displaced threshold,
  4. As stopway lighting,
  5. As backup lighting.

Threshold lighting’ work time

The threshold portable lights’ work time is dependent on the light intensity it uses. If the lights are set to low intensity, they will work about 25 hours. They will work about 10 hours in the high-intensity mode.

Work modes

The state-of-the-art runway lighting systems provide different work modes:

  • Saving the last mode (the “Last” button)
  • An option to generate 30, 60 or 120 flashes per minute
  • An option to set an automatic from-dusk-to-dawn mode.
  • An option to work in a night vision mode.

Resistance to extreme temperatures

Portable lighting is often used in places with extreme weather conditions. Therefore, the lights should be particularly resistance to extremely low and high temperatures. The best systems provide a standard, failure-free performance in temperatures from -20°C o 50°C. However, a special lighting set can work in temperatures from -40°C to 80°C.

Resistance to other conditions

Runway threshold portable solar lighting used at hard-to-reach airports is not exposed to extreme temperatures only.

Therefore, it needs to be:

  • Water-resistant,
  • UV-resistant,
  • Corrosion-resistant.

Charging options

One of the most important characteristics required from runway lighting is reliability. That’s why, in this case, it is entirely justify to provide three independent power sources. The first one is OCT-102 charger. The second – solar panel. The third – an electrical power grid.

Threshold lights monitoring

Threshold portable lights monitoring is carried out remotely. The system is equipped with a multifunctional button, and ALC (Automatic Lights Control) which adjusts the light intensity when the battery level is low. Besides that, the system has an integrated microprocessor, and a system that prevents overcharging and a total battery discharge.
