Obelux Heliport Beacon provides omni-directional flashing white light fully compliant with ICAO Annex 14 Volume II. The light can be controlled in many different ways, including Serial Communication (RS-485), dry contacts, and dip switches located inside the light. The beacon incorporates its own power supply unit and controller module, including photocell for automatic Day/Twilight/Night switching. It also includes infrared (IR) for Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatibility.

Please pay attention to the very short ICAO flash duration = 0.5 -2.0 milliseconds. This is very often overlooked!
