Programmable Location & Identification Beacon Available from FEC Heliports

FEC Heliports has added a new range of innovative Programmable Location and Identification Beacons to their range of heliport lighting equipment. These medium intensity beacons, which are available as three or single color units, use high brightness LEDs and advanced micro-electronics to provide a range of pre-programmed and user field-selectable operating modes. The beacons can be programmed without any special knowledge, skills or tools, by means of on-board switches either before or after installation. Additional on-board switches enable different maximum light output levels to be set and control which quadrants of each light are active. These new beacons are housed in FEC’s existing, field-proven range of robust cast aluminium and glass housings, providing simple installation and upgrade. Depending on beacon type, the modes which may be selected include:

• FAA L-802H Civil Helipad Beacon - 36 Flashes per Minute [FPM], 75ms pulse width

• FAA L-802M Military Helipad Beacon - 17.3 FPM, 100ms pulse width

Two Location beacon modes:

• Modified ICAO pattern (short [2mS] and long [ 25mS] pulse) - 30 FPM

• 25 FPM UK CAA and Transport Canada timing compliant

Two Morse beacon modes: 4 - 6 WPM (Words Per Minute):

• 1, 2 and 3 character code options (defined at time of ordering)

• Rotating (simulated) and flashing beacon modes

For installations requiring light shielding to prevent pilot glare or distraction, arrays are individually selectable enabling any combination of 90-degree quadrants to be enabled or disabled. The Beacons are powered from a 48V DC source making them safe to install and operate and suitable for powering from a suitable 110/240V AC power supply or batteries. Custom versions of the beacons are available (e.g. IR, non-standard modes, automatic night-time switching).
