Compliance and Applications
The FTS 370D Vanguard II is a dual (red and white) FAA L-864/L-865 medium intensity LED aviation obstruction lighting system for structures between 200' and 700' AGL (FAA E-type towers). The system also meets CAR 621 2nd Edition standards for medium intensity CL-864/CL-865 flashing obstruction light as well as ICAO 6th Edition standards for medium intensity type A/type B obstacle lights.
The Vanguard II uses a single cable for beacon power, marker power and communication. Firmware can be upgraded for future compatibility with no need for controller modification and includes programming that allows the lighting system to be avian friendly. The single enclosure houses a low voltage environment that removes the need for an interlock switch, allowing alarms to remain active when the door is opened.
• Interleaved LEDs and bypass circuitry provide longer life by allowing the loss of individual LEDs up to the 25% limit
• Industry-leading IEC 61000-4-5 surge immunity to 25kA
• Patented Fresnel optics to minimize ground scatter
