The Heliport TAXI lights are steady omnidirectional blue lights designed for marking the taxiway path.
TAXI lights shall be installed on the edge of the taxiway from the helipad to the parking area to show the designated taxiway route.
The mounting system is elevated, fixed on a base plate with a frangible coupling
The casing is made of powder-coated aluminum
The diffuser is made of clear polycarbonate UV protected
The power supply can be a heliport controller. In this case, the control is also made in three steps from the heliport controller. Power input can be low voltage, 48 V DC or it can work in constant current when the distance from the heliport controller to the lights is long and this will generate a big drop of voltage on cables.
Optionally it can be powered at 90-230V, 50/60Hz but the light fixtures will no longer have the dimming function
The total power is just 2W
TAXI elevated lights were tested for working environments from -50 to + 50 °C
The degree of protection is IP 67
The exposed surface to the wind is low so it can withstand strong wind
UV protected polycarbonate makes it resistant to sun radiation
The light source is made with BLUE LEDs and special lenses to obtain the ICAO specifications
The color and lights distribution passes the tests according to ICAO into an external recognised laboratory
The expected lifetime for LEDs is more than 100000 working hours
