Applications

There are a number of applications for our approach lighting products. We have provided several examples below based on FAA regulations. In addition, we have deployed our products internationally for both civilian (commercial and private) and military applications. We would be happy to discuss your specific requirements and assist in selecting the right products for your site.

REILs

(Runway End Identification Lights) are used to identify the approach end of the runway. The horizontal bean pattern and bright simultaneous flashes help the pilot identify the runway in use. Three intensity settings allow the approach to be used under changing weather conditions.These lights are compatible with most approach lighting systems (e.g. ALSF, SSALR, and MALSR).

ODALS

(Omni-Directional Approach Lights) are used to identify the approach end and centerline of the runway. The omni-directional horizontal beam pattern, bright flashes and a sequential strobing flash pattern that rolls towards the runway threshold helps the pilot identify the runway in use. Three intensity settings allow the approach to be used under changing weather conditions.

MALSR

(Medium Intensity Approach Lighting Systems with Runway Alignment Indicator Lights) are used by pilots during instrument landing approach to align the aircraft with the centerline of the runway. Up to 63 steady-burning lights are used to create a reference plane, and up to eight lights create a sequential strobing flash pattern that rolls toward the runway threshold. Three intensity settings allow the approach to be used under changing weather conditions.

There are also several configurations of Approach Lighting Systems (ALS) as specified by the FAA, including ALSF-I, ALSF-II, and SSALR, described below.

ALSF-I

(Approach Lighting System with Sequenced Flashing Lights) is used on Category I runways during instrument landing approach to align the aircraft with the centerline of the runway and to establish vertical orientation. Up to 21 white lights create a sequential strobing flash pattern that rolls toward the runway threshold.

ALSF-II

(Approach Lighting System with Sequenced Flashing Lights) mode is used on Category II runways during instrument landing approach to align the aircraft with the centerline of the runway and to establish vertical orientation. Up to 174 steady burning white lights serve as a reference plane, and two rows of red side row barrettes increase the pilot's horizontal perception. Up to 21 white lights create a sequential strobing flash pattern that rolls toward the runway threshold. Three intensity settings allow the approach to be used under changing weather conditions.

SSALR

(Simplified Short Approach Lighting System with Runway Alignment Indicator Lights) mode is used during instrument landing approach to align the aircraft with the centerline of the runway. The white steady burning lights of the ALSF-II are greatly reduced to conserve power under improved visibility conditions and the red side row barrettes are not powered. Up to 63 steady-burning lights are used to create a reference plane, and up to eight white lights create a sequential strobing flash pattern that rolls toward the runway threshold.
