Helideck HSLS Ex Control Panel


The IMT ILED Aquarius HSLS (Helideck Status Light System) is designed to meet the latest CAP 437 and IMO Modu Code regulations. As goes for all IMT products, our HSLS control panels are designed to increase safety while requiring an absolute minimum of maintenance. The smart electronics are in constant communication with the status lights (even when they are on stand-by), monitoring the health of the system. This eliminates the need to regularly test the system’s operation (otherwise required by CAP437), allowing the crew to focus on their core business.

The Ex version is ATEX certified and suitable for installation in Hazardous areas, both zone 1 and 2. The control panel is made off a high (marine) grade aluminium, which is lightweight and corrosion resistant. The high IP (Ingress Protection) value ensures the components are protected against the elements.

Depending on the project requirements, IMT control panels can also integrate other helideck lighting such as floodlights, perimeter lights, illuminated windsocks, obstruction lights and of course the IMT CIRCLE-H Helideck Lights. Upon your request, the system can be equipped with a dedicated UPS.

The use of advanced electronics also allows remote control and the complete system status to be made available in a central control room, or even onshore if required.
