OL800 Temporary Solar Obstruction Light

Wind Turbines Under Construction

The OL800 is a temporary FAA L-810 solar LED obstruction lighting system for temporary installations like MET mast towers and during wind turbine construction. The compact, integrated design is stand-alone, maintenance-free and includes a high-efficiency LED light source, solar panels and battery.


Standard Features

  • Patented Energy Management System (EMS) for increased autonomy
  • Top-mounted LED user interface with simple tap-to-activate functionality
  • Long-life Luxeon Rebel LEDs
  • Solar panels on all 4 sides simplify installation and reduce battery charge time
  • Replaceable and recyclable batteries to extend product life
  • Ships pre-programmed for FAA L-810 applications unless otherwise specified


System Options and Accessories

  • Infrared LEDs for compliance with FAA AC 150/5345-43J
  • Standard and extended mounting brackets
  • Infrared programmer for remote control
  • Choice of battery pack sizes to meet desired autonomy


Regulatory Compliance

  • FAA L-864 per FAA AC 150/5345-43G
  • ICAO Medium Intensity type B
  • CAR 621 CL-810
  • Australian CASA low intensity obstacle light



  • 3-year warranty
  • 1-year warranty on battery

Per section 13.8 of FAA AC 70/7460-1L: a steady-burning red L-810 is required during construction if the permanent flashing L-864 is not in place. If power is not available, structures should be lit with a self-contained, solar-powered, steady burning red LED light meeting the photometric requirements of an FAA L-810.


Per FAA Engineering Brief 76, temporary solar lighting systems must have 7 days of autonomy at 32.5 candela. Autonomy refers to how long the light will last if all solar charging is removed. A light with 7 days of autonomy should shine for 7 consecutive nights if there is no sunlight or charging during those days.
