Application

A Heliport beacon is a powerful light, omnidirectional intended to signal the presence of a heliport. The Heliport beacon flashes in Morse code the letter H.

It is used especially when the helipads are surrounded by lights like in a city where it is hard to distinguish the heliports from the other lights.

Electrical Characteristics

The beacon must be powered and controlled by a special controller which creates the flashing sequence and alow the brightness control. The Heliport Beacon can be also controlled by the main heliport controller.

Maximum pick power consumption is 120 W.

The average consumption is less than 20W.

Optical Characteristics

The heliport beacon uses OSRAM White LEDs.

The beam is omnidirectional and the vertical distribution is from 0 to 10 degrees.

The brightness intensity values comply with: ICAO Annex 14 Vol.2 fig.5-11/1

The measured trichromatic coordinates correspond to color range requirements in:
ICAO Annex 14 – Aerodromes Vol.1, fig. A1-1-1b – Colors for aeronautical ground lights (solid-state lighting).
