Runway End Identification Light (REIL)

Runway End Identification Light (REIL)/Runway Threshold Identification Light (RTIL)

The LED Runway End Identification Light (REIL) provides rapid and positive identification to arriving pilots of the approach end of the runway. The system consists of two GPS synchronized unidirectional flashing lights.
The lights install on each corner of the runway-landing threshold, facing the approach area. Proper sequencing of the flashing lights is via onboard GPS. A selector switch inside the REIL allows for field setting of the light position, identical positions used in the case of the REIL. Power options include 24 VDC, AC (90-270VAC) and solar. Control options include wireless, wired, power line control (AC version only), and manual control.
