ILED Aquarius Helideck Floodlight


The traditional main purpose of the helideck floodlight, assisting the pilots with visual cues regarding the location of the deck and their relative position, is diminishing as the CIRCLE-H lighting system, which is far superior for this purpose, is obtaining worldwide adaptation.

However, helideck floodlights still play an important role in providing illumination for passenger movements, refuelling operations and as a back-up lighting system. Fortunately the steady enhancements in LED technology now make the maintenance intensive, expensive and often glare-causing Xenon variety obsolete.

The ILED helideck floodlight is made of an extremely corrosion resistant alloy which has been hard anodized and Teflon coated. The use of high-powered precision LEDs and PMMA Fresnel lens allow for a very well defined light distribution, minimizing glare as well as energy consumption, while at the same time providing superior illumination of the helideck surface. The combination of the alloy’s high thermal conductivity with the integration of hermetically sealed cooling ducts, which keep the LEDs backside cool through convection, prevent thermal degradation and maintains the light output during its exceptional 100.000 hour life expectancy.

The ILED Aquarius helideck floodlight is suitable for installation in Ex-hazardous areas. The method of protection of choice, Ex-e (mb), not only guarantees explosion safety, but, as an additional benefit, by encapsulating the units sensitive electronic circuits they are also protected from humidity and corrosive influences. As the unit is completely sealed, the only required maintenance is an annual visual inspection. The lantern as a whole, including the integrated (Ex-e) junction box, is IP66 certified.
