01 Beacon ICAO Type A Solar
- Low intensity <45m
- Intensity 10Cd
For Low Intensity beacons such as IV-10A and IV-32B, 10 and 32Cd respectively, the most suitable type of feeding (solar, electric or hybrid) can be chosen for each case. The solar beacons provide an additional advantage, since they do not need protection against lightning, as they are not electrically connected to any equipment in the tower. Towers higher than 45m will be marked with Medium Intensity beacons, such as MIB-1.1 or MIC-1.1. The “WireFree” technology used in the light modules developed by IVSOLAR for its beacons helps to minimize both the emission and reception of electronic “noise”.
Beacons are vital to aviation safety. They are visible and effective for pilots in reducing the risk of collision with overhead structures.+ info
