LED lighting technology provider Dialight says its L-864 LED medium-intensity beacon system has achieved certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for wind turbine applications per the FAA's AC 70/7460-1K specifications for wind turbine farms.

According to Dialight, the Vigilant system features a GPS controller and monitoring system inside the beacon housing for a more rugged, weather-resistant unit. Global GPS synchronization ensures precise synchronized flashing of multiple beacons, and Dialight's precision, patented optics design offers a sharp cutoff angle for a community-friendly lighting solution with maximum aerial visibility and safety.

The Vigilant Series offers quick payback and faster ROI with significant energy and maintenance savings compared to traditional Xenon and incandescent technology, and even compared to older LED products which have been installed since approximately 2001, the company notes.

The vibration, static and high-voltage resistant system delivers exceptional long-life performance in a maintenance-free solution backed by Dialight’s five-year, full-performance warranty covering the entire fixture. The high-efficiency system can draw just 3.3 watts average for a more efficient lighting solution to complement the sustainable wind energy production.
