Carmanah Introduces the First Solar-Powered High Intensity Runway Light

The A704-H is the New Benchmark for Solar LED Aviation Lights
Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Carmanah Technologies Corporation, Aviation division, is pleased to announce the release of the A704-H solar LED airfield runway light. The A704-H is the first solar-powered High Intensity Runway Light (HIRL) with directional output. It can provide over 500 candela visible light in white or be switched to infrared mode for night vision goggle (NVG) operations.

Built on Carmanah’s proven 700 series platform, the A704-H features wireless control and integrates solar panels, battery, electronics, and LED light source into a compact, stand-alone unit requiring minimal maintenance. The replaceable battery extends service life well beyond five years.

Already in service with the US military in one of the most austere environments on the planet, the A704-H is ideal for airfields where the operational profile requires high intensity lighting or where a cabled/solar hybrid solution is beneficial to operations.

The A704-H is designed for emergency runways, tactical airfields, or any airfield where grid power is not available or reliable.
