FAA: L-806 and L-807 AC 150/5345-27 (Current Edition).
CE: Complies with the requirements of the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC
ADB’s LED Solar Wind Cone System (SWCS) is an ideal choice for an airfield that requires improved safety measures, but experiences difficulties with grid access. ADB’s SWCS consists of either an L-806 or L-807 solar-powered wind cone (SWC) and a Solar Engine Power Supply (SEPS). The SWC provides visual surface wind direction and velocity information to pilots in flight or on the ground at airports and heliports. The SEPS incorporates the latest technology in solar technology, hardware and software to provide power and control to the SWC.
The L-806 SWC is a low-mass, frangible-designed wind cone available in two lighted styles, internal or external, with an eight-foot wind sock
The L-807 SWC is a non-frangible designed wind cone available in two lighted styles, internal or external, and in two sizes, eight-or twelve-foot wind socks
The SWCS installs in minutes with no trenching, cabling, or external power, and can be relocated just as quickly.
L-807 12-foot pole is available with either a centre hinge or bottom hinge. Center hinge allows easier pole lowering. Bottom hinge includes a swing-out support leg that allows the mast to be lowered to a convenient servicing height for light source replacement.
Sealed bearings allow precision vaning for true wind direction in all types of weather and wind conditions
Bearing covers are provided for additional bearing protection against dirt and moisture
The nylon fabric sock is treated for water repellence and resistance to rot and mildew
The standard colour is orange and the colourfastness exceeds Method 5671 of Federal Standard 191. Other colors such as alternate orange/white banded are available as a special order.
daily depth of discharge is sized for a minimum of 5 years of service.
Unprecedented reliability: microprocessor Energy Management System (EMS) monitors and adapts the brightness to environmental conditions for consistent operation and long life under the toughest conditions.
The minimum autonomy or operational period without charging is 7 days.
Protect personnel and assets: Optional hand-held wireless control allows for remote operation of an SWC including mode changes for enhanced visibility in poor weather conditions
Green solution: a clean, renewable and reliable energy source with the lightest environmental footprint.
