The Honeywell MALSR System is a medium intensity approach lighting system that provides a visual lighting path for landing aircraft.
The MALSR system usually is a 2400-foot-long array of lights but can be longer or shorter depending on local terrain and requirements.
A typical MALSR system consists of the following light fixture components:
• 9 light bars each with 5 steady burning white PAR38 fixtures
• 5 sequence flashing white PAR56 fixtures
• Threshold bar of 18 steady burning green PAR56 fixtures.
The MALSR system can be mounted on 2-inch EMT, up to a 6-feet mounting height or on frangible towers over 6 feet.
System control of the sequence flashing lights is accomplished through the master controller selecting one of three light intensities: low, medium, or high. Both the sequence flashing and the steady burning light systems provide for either local or remote control.
The MALSR System is equipped with the Remote Monitoring Subsystem (RMS), which meets all FAA specifications required for operation with the FAA Maintenance Processing System (MPS). It is based upon a design modem and computer processor that has been proven in the Honeywell PAPI system developed under contract with FAA. RMS meets the requirements of NAS-MD-790 and NAS-MD-793.
