Our ETL Certified L-861 LED Runway Edge Lights are used to identify the runway edge and threshold/end at general aviation and medium-sized airports. Each L-861 is constructed from a die cast aluminum body, powder coated in aviation yellow. The L-861s feature long-life LEDs that reduce power consumption, increase reliability and reduce operating costs. A rugged cord is included with a rubberized L-823 style connector to connect to the secondary of a 6.6A isolation transformer. Each L-861 includes a 1.5″ (standard) or 2.0″ frangible coupling to attach the fixture to a L-867 style base plate or mounting stake. Standard mounting heights are 14, 24 and 30 inches.
