Compliance with Standards
FAA: Designed to meet L-858Y, L-858R L-858L and L-858B AC 150/5345-44 (Current Edition) and the FAA Engineering Brief No. 67 “Light Sources other than Incandescent and Xenon for Airport Lighting and Obstruction Lighting Fixtures.”
CE: Complies with the requirements of the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC
ADB’s LED Solar Sign System (SSS) is an ideal choice for an airfield that requires improved safety measures, but experiences difficulties with grid access. ADB’s SSS sign (SS) and a Solar Engine Power Supply (SEPS). The SEPS incorporates the latest technology in solar technology, hardware and software to provide power and control to the SS.
L-858Y SS: Direction, Destination, and Boundary (Informational Sign)
L-858R SS: Mandatory Sign
L-858L SS: Runway/Taxiway Location Sign These signs are designed to guide pilots to a particular point on the field, identify holding positions, identify taxiway and runway intersections, and prohibit aircraft entry into designated areas.
L-858B SS: Runway Distance Remaining Sign The L-858B SS is used at 1,000-foot intervals adjacent to the runway edge in order to provide runway distance remaining information to pilots during takeoff and landing operations.
Virtually eliminates runway shutdowns due to LED light source
Direct replacement for existing sign
Creates a highly uniform distribution of light, eliminating hot spots and shadows
Operates on solar energy
Eliminates re-lamping expenses and reduces on-going maintenance costs
The SSS installs in minutes with no trenching, cabling, or external power, and can be relocated just as quickly.
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 a solar sign including mode changes for enhanced visibility in poor weather conditions
Green solution: a clean, renewable and reliable energy source with the lightest environmental footprint.
Easy Installation: no specialized work crews required; limited air traffic disruption and functions immediately upon installation
Compact, self-contained design; easy deployment and relocation
Significant cost savings: no fuel or electrical billsReduced maintenance cycles: no scheduled maintenance for up to five years
