Urbana, Ohio (4/25/16)—Hughey & Phillips (H&P), a global leader in the obstruction lighting industry, announces the new DC HORIZON™ line of medium-intensity strobe LED based obstruction lighting solutions for daytime and nighttime lighting on tall structures such as communication, television and radio towers, wind turbines, smokestacks and other obstructions to aerial navigation.
Intertek (ETL) certified and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved the DC HORIZON™ L-864 which provides nighttime red light to light various structures as aeronautical obstructions, and is part of the newest addition to H&P’s obstruction lighting portfolio. The DC powered series will be available in L864 (Red), L865 (White) and L864/L865 (Red/White). Daytime white strobe eliminates the need to paint the structure with aviation orange and white stripes, and nighttime red flashing beacon lights are community friendly. The HORIZON™ L-864/865 is best suited for structures between 150’ (45 m) and 700’ (225 m) above ground level and operates at a range of -/+ 48VDC.
The new microprocessor controlled LED strobe system boasts a self-contained power supply that simplifies wiring but also accepts external signals if necessary. Its compact design, built-in testing, GPS sync, automatic day/night sensor and wiring compatibility make the product easy to use and install. Like other products in the HORIZON™ line, the units are compatible with existing cable systems in most cases, allowing users to retrofit to LED without purchasing entire new systems.
“Our customers have come to rely on Hughey & Phillips to provide the next generation of cutting-edge LED obstruction lighting solutions. The new H&P DC HORIZON™ LED Series fills the need for both daytime and nighttime strobe lighting technology, and outperforms legacy incandescent fixtures by substantial margins. We’re proud to add another offering to our HORIZON™ line that provides our customers with significant cost- and power savings,” said Jim Sullivan, Vice President of Sales for Hughey & Phillips.
H&P HORIZON™ system uses 90 percent less power than incandescent medium intensity models, and is designed, built and sourced in the United States, using U.S. suppliers. There are more than 20 patents pending on components and features of the HORIZON series. The system comes with a five-year warranty and has an expected life of more than 15 years. It is the only unit in the market to be completely serviceable, ensuring a longer life than any competitor models. To receive more information please visit our website, www.hugheyandphillips.com
