High Intensity Xenon Obstruction Lights

High intensity Obstruction LightsHigh intensity xenon obstruction lights are used mainly during night marking. The xenon lights are credibly known for their gift to infiltrate poor visibility and foggy conditions. It provides an output in multiples of an equivalent neon light filament.

A high intensity white strobe light (FAA) is used on structures that are greater than 150 meters. Unlike a medium intensity xenon light, a high intensity one doesn't provide 360˚ coverage, which requires the use of at least 3 high strobes at each level.

The common high white strobe flashes 40-60 times in a minute, at an intensity of 200,000 candelas for daytime, 20,000 candelas at twilight, and 2,000 candelas at night-time.

The operation of our xenon lights will not be affected even in temperatures ranging from -20°C to +55°C. They will withstand wind-speeds of 240 kph, blown from any direction, along with rain and fog.
