LED Obstruction Lights Family E59

The LED Obstruction Lights of the E59 family  are designed for marking buildings, poles, towers, smokestacks, and other potentially hazardous obstructions to air traffic with steady red safety light.  Units with green light signal can be supplied if needed. Light fixture of the lights  consists of  circular printed circuit boards with light emitting diodes (LED’s) and necessary electronics circuitry mounted on an aluminium shaft fixed to a circular base plate, covered by a clear UV-stable impact resistant polycarbonate or glass  cupola, which is compounded to the base plate.  The assembly is fully sealed and has no user-serviceable parts inside.
