FEATURES: , The ARB-18 is a versatile stand alone high range gearless
revolving Airport Location LED Beacon.
LED PANELS : The octagonal shaped rotating assembly is made of 8 alumunium
plates. Upto 8 LED panels cab be fitted on the alumunium plates to suit the required
light characters and with the selectable rotation period, variety of light
can be achieved.
LED PANELS DRIVE :The LED panel assembly is rotated by a low power
microprocessor controlled gearless system. the drive systems are duplicated. If one
drive fails, the standby drive switches ON automatically. Also the standby drive can
manually be switch-ON from the front control panel.
LED CONTROLLER:The LED controller is microprocessor based unit incorporating
all the controls. Also it has solar charge
regulator for the battery protection from over / under charge. The beacon switches
LIGHT CHARACTERS/ROTATION SPEED SETTING : The speeds are pre-set for 20,25
and 30 flashes per revolution as per ICAO. By selecting the no. of LED panels and
setting required speed can create all the desired light characters. (other speeds
can be set on request.)
MONITORING : (OPTIONAL):The system is suitable for remotely monitoring of all
the necessary functions of the beacon by using GPS and GSM system.
CONTROL PANEL :The control panel is fitted on
the front part of the beacon body containing all the manual controls and indication
POWER SUPPLY :The beacon can be supplied
with solar supply system or AC/DC unit with battery standby for mains supply system.
