Installing the correct airfield lighting is fundamental for ensuring safe landings and take-offs at night and in poor weather conditions. Lighting is used to mark out the important areas of the airfield. The light sources are integrated in appropriate obstacle lights, either set into the ground or installed above ground. This calls for lamps that are shockproof and can withstand the vibrations that occur when aircraft take off and land. In addition, special safety regulations require a uniform and durable light output to ensure that aircraft movements run smoothly.
Halogen lamps are perfect light sources for airfield lighting. Light sources for this application need to highly reliable and durable and relatively low installation costs. They provide instant and constant light output and have an impressively long life of up to 6000 hours. The light from halogen lamps is absolutely flicker free and dimmable and provides first-class performance even in adverse weather conditions such as snow and fog. Thanks to their small bulb size and high luminance these lamps are ideal for the compact design of airfield lights.
