Vanguard® Red FTS 371 SMART Lighting System

LED MET Mast Tower Lights

The FTS 371 SMART is a low-power FAA L-810/L-864 red obstruction lighting system for FAA type A0/A1 structures and meteorological (or MET mast) towers. The system can be integrated with a solar power plant where grid power is temporarily or permanently unavailable. The solar plant will provide the minimum 7-day autonomy and 2,000 ECD output per FAA Engineering Brief 76.

 

Standard Features

  • Dry contact relay for integration with Aircraft Detection Lighting System (ADLS) interface
  • Patented Fresnel optics to minimize ground scatter
  • Red and infrared (IR) beacon LEDs for compliance with FAA AC150/5345-43J and low power consumption
  • Modbus RTU Serial RS-485 monitoring capability
  • 4 dry contact relays (beacon, marker and photodiode alarms and MODE status)
  • Field configurable flash rate for 20/30/40/60 fpm or steady operation
  • Photodiode for mode change
  • Impact-resistant polycarbonate enclosure
