Runway Guard Light (RGL)
Runway Incursion Prevention
ADB’s LED Solar Runway Guard Light System (SRGLS) is an ideal choice for an airfield that requires improved safety measures, but experiences difficulties with grid access. ADB’s SRGLS consists of an elevated unidirectional flashing yellow Solar-powered Runway Guard Light (SRGL) and a Solar Engine Power Supply (SEPS). The SRGL provides a distinctive warning to pilots that they are approaching a runway holding position and are about to enter an active runway. The SEPS incorporates the latest technology in solar technology, hardware and software to provide power and control to the SRGL. The SRGLS is typically installed in pairs, one on either side of the taxiway holding position. The SRGLS can also be used in combination with L-852G (In-pavement Runway Guard Light), L-852S (In-pavement Stop Bar Light), and L-862S (Elevated Stop Bar Light) to provide additional safety under low- visibility conditions on the airfield.
ADB’s Solar Runway Guard Light System (SRGLS) can provide 24-hour unidirectional flashing to aid in reducing airfield incursions at unmarked runway and taxiway intersections.
The SRGLS installs in minutes with no trenching, cabling, or external power, and can be relocated just as quickly.
Includes lamps, frangible column, and tether.
Fixture is controlled (flash-rate) from an intelligent lighting control system module located in the SEPS.
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.
Daily depth of discharge is sized for a minimum of 5 years of service.
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 SRGL including mode changes for enhanced visibility in poor weather conditions
Green solution: a clean, renewable and reliable energy source with the lightest environmental footprint.
The SRGL can be aimed both vertically and horizontally and has an Adjustable Light Beam: 0° to 20° vertically; ±20° horizontally
Average LED life of 56,000 hours under high-intensity conditions and more than 100,000 hours under actual operating conditions, resulting in significant reduction or even elimination of ongoing maintenance costs and periodic re-lamping expenses.
The two SRGL light sources are surrounded by a black face plate and independent visors to reduce the amount of incident sunlight, thereby maximizing the contrast during the lamp ON/OFF cycle
LED lamp replacement is achieved without tools to minimize downtime
Access to the SRGL interface is achieved through a hinged waterproof lid that permits easy connection
Fixture is fabricated from corrosion-resistant materials, and all exterior surfaces are painted aviation yellow for added protection and visibility
