FTS 370w Vanguard LED L-865 Tower Lights and Obstruction Lighting System - SPX Corp -
Description: -- Designed with the customer in mind, the Flash Technology Vanguard II is more robust and easier to install than ever before. New features and options create the most versatile lighting system on the market today.
Tested by multiple lightning test laboratories, the Vanguard II has a surge suppression rating of 25kA. To put that into perspective, a properly grounded tower should take approximately 55% of the lightning energy to ground through tower steel leaving 45% to be distributed among the rest of the cables on the tower. An average lightning strike is 28kA, with a 200kA strike happening less than 1% of the time. For a 200kA strike on a tower using an average of 4 cables on the tower, the flashhead cable would receive 22.5kA. With the 25kA surge rating, the Vanguard II is built to withstand the most intense lightning strikes.
The Vanguard II provides many options for monitoring, whether it is performed by your NOC or by Flash Technology. Connectivity options include cellular for both AT&T and Verizon with supplied monitoring devices as well as an Ethernet port. The Vanguard II also features Modbus and SNMP open protocols to support 3rd party monitoring. With the variety of connectivity options and monitoring protocols the Vanguard II can truly be customized to suit most monitoring needs.
New features and options
Now with Vanguard II, there is an Infrared (IR) option for better visibility to night vision goggles (NVG) and NVIS. Our FTS 370 NVG compatible design combines Red (620nm) and IR (850nm) LEDs to ensure visibility to pilots in all circumstances.
Now standard on the Vanguard II is the ability to interface with a radar system through DC relay or Modbus. Radar systems are being increasingly used to control the lighting of towers only when aircraft are approaching.
The Vanguard II is now available with either a +/- 24 or +/- 48 VDC input option that will allow flexibility for off-grid installations.
Easier to Install
Flash Technology is proud to announce its new LED L-810 marker. At less than a pound in weight, and requiring only two adjustable straps to mount, the new Vanguard marker is the easiest marker to install on the market.
The new versatile enclosure is made out of the same power-coated lightweight aluminum used in the flashhead for easier installation and cooler operating temperatures. Other features include two lockable twist knobs for easier access, a water channel to divert water away from the door opening, and knock-out holes to assist with cable installation in the bottom of the enclosure.
With robust protection, monitoring, flexibility, and many new features the Flash Technology Vanguard II is the only choice for your obstruction lighting system needs.
