Airfield - Effective solutions for runway, taxiway and approach lighting
The ever-increasing volume of passengers and freight in global air traffic makes greater demands on safety too. Because of its major impact on passenger safety, airport operators are paying special attention to the lighting of runways for take-off, landing and taxiing. 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.
OSRAM Airfield lamps are made on state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment to yield high quality lamps with precision filament alignment. The result is high performing lamps that are reliable and provide consistent light output through the rated lifetime.
The right light on airfieldis fundamental for ensuring safe landing and take-off at night and in poor weather conditions.
Airfield conditions at airport are a tough challenge for the light fixture and lamp systems have to cable of withstanding greatly fluctuating temperatures and vibrations
The light from halogen lamp is flicker-free and dimmable and provides first- class performance even in adverse conditions such as snow and fog.
