FTS 370i-2 Vanguard Integrated Wind Turbine Lighting

L-864 LED Obstruction Lighting System for Wind Turbines

The Vanguard Medium FTS 370i-2 IR is available as an FAA L-864 or ICAO Type B medium intensity aircraft warning light specifically designed for wind turbines. The FTS 370i utilizes LED technology, advanced optics and industry-leading surge protection to ensure long-term reliability and compliance. For wind turbines with a rotor tip height between 500’ and 700’, two Vanguard 370i-2 IR units can be used together on one nacelle to meet FAA AC 70/7460-1L specifications.
