OCT-401 – ChARGING STATION for solar airfield lights

OCT-401 stationary charging station is designed to re-charge SP-401 solar powered airfield lights. OCT-401 can charge up to ten aviation lights simultaneously. Charging station is required to be connected to a standard electrical socket. It can operate on both 110 or 230 VAC. Charging time is 7 hours for completely discharged battery.

Key Features

  • Universal AC input / Full range
  • Protections: Short circuit / Overload / Over voltage / Over temperature
  • Forced air cooling by built-in DC Fan
  • Built-in fan ON / OFF control

Why does S4GA support solar AGL with charging station? Our customers often ask us – what happens with solar-powered airfield lighting system in case of a long period of sunless (cloudy) weather. Solar panel is used NOT to power BUT to charge the battery so there is no risk of system being inoperative during the night time. Assuming “worst case scenario” we can’t always rely on sunshine availability. Therefore S4GA system offers two additional ways to charge airfield lights (apart from solar-based charging). (#1) Charging station, (#2) Stationary cable ( light can be connected to electrical grid that provides 24V, 1.5A DC power).

sp-401 lighting unit

SP-401 lighting unit is key element of hybrid airfield lighting. This intelligent lighting unit is solar-powered and wirelessly controlled. ICAO-compliant optics generates correct light output in terms of intensity and chromaticity.

mounting for concrete

This mounting is designed to fix SP-401 lighitng unit to concrete or asphalt surface. Mounting is made of non-corrosive steel. Aviation-yellow, UV-resistant paint additionally protects mounting and extends its lifespan.

Mounting platforms is made of 3 elements: top platform – to fix the unit, surface platform to fix mounting to the concrete or asphalt surface and frangible coupling. Both platforms are made of steel however coupling is fabricated using non-corrosive aluminium to ensure ICAO-required frangibility parameters.

mounting for grass

This mounting is designed to fix SP-401 lighitng unit to grass or ground surface. Mounting is made of non-corrosive steel. Aviation-yellow, UV-resistant paint additionally protects mounting and extends its lifespan.

Mounting platforms is made of 3 elements: top platform – to fix the unit, spiral to fix structure to the grass or ground surface and frangible coupling. Platform and spiral are made of steel and coupling is fabricated of non-corrosive aluminium to ensure ICAO-required frangibility parameters.
