“HYBRID” Obstacle Warning Lights advantages
In 1999 IVSOLAR launched its first obstacle warning lights with LED technology, powered by solar energy, on the European market, all in a compact unit, without additional external panels, boxes or sensors. This launch represented a technological leap in a time where the incandescent lamps connected to the greed were the standard for the obstacle warning lights (high consumption, low reliability of the lamps, need for periodic maintenance, etc…).
The beacons with LED technology powered by solar energy have been on the market for more than twenty years, some, such as those developed by IVSOLAR, complying with the most demanding technical and reliability standards, set by ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization), body belonging to the UN.
Its advantages over traditional electric beacons are remarkable, of course, in latitudes where the sun’s rays allow its operation throughout the year (more than 80% of the inhabited planet). But what happens in areas where solar radiation is minimal or non-existent during winter (areas of the planet near the Poles, for example)?
IVSOLAR, the developer of compact solar beacons, has given an effective response to this situation: hybrid beacons, powered by solar energy plus electrical energy.
Why choose hybrid beacons?
In some cases, the hybrid beacons can be powered by solar energy, autonomously, and, if necessary, be recharged with grid connection.
They can also be installed with a (fixed) grid connection, so that they can be powered indistinctly by solar or electric energy, preferably solar whenever possible.
In addition, in the event of a power failure and the absence of solar radiation for a long time, the beacon will continue to illuminate thanks to the built-in batteries, so that it is the beacon with the most operational safety on the market.
– Double feeding capacity.
– Autonomous (temporary) operation even in total absence of power.
– Easy repositioning capacity (mobility).
– Maximum ecological conscience without loss of reliability.
– The most reliable equipment on the market, thanks to its outstanding power supply possibilities.
– Those indicated for places with a need for greater reliability of signaling equipment, in any place and circumstance.
IVSOLAR is the brand of obstacle signaling lights developed by de JVV GRUP, S.A.
