Airfield Fixture AV-426 Radio-Controlled Solar Aviation Light

Radio Controlled Solar Runway or Approach Airfield Light – AV-426 Series II

The AV-426 is a robust, completely self-contained LED light designed for a range of aviation applications including permanent approach, runway edge, threshold, helipad and tactical airfield lighting. Fitted with RF radio control, this fully functioning light can be controlled from the tower with no costly cabling or trenching required.

The AV-426 Series II is designed with next generation solar technology including active MPPT (maximum power point tracking – maximising the power extracted from the solar panels) and enhanced optics for improved performance and efficiency
