Dialight Unveils First-of-its-Kind LED L-866/L-885 Catenary Strobe for Canyon, River and Valley Cable-Crossing Applications

Oct 27, 2010 Dialight has unveiled its new Vigilant™ Series L-866/L-885 LED Dual Catenary Strobe, the first-ever LED white/red obstruction beacon designed to warn aircraft of power line and cable crossings above canyons, valleys and waterways.

In addition to its long life - up to 10 years, the Vigilant L-866/L-885 is the most energy-efficient catenary strobe on the market, consuming just 120 watts per unit to produce 20,000 candela (cd) on white for daytime operation, and just 20 watts for 2,000 cd on white nighttime operation. Red nighttime operation draws just 45 watts to deliver 2,000 cd.

Ideal for use in naturalized areas where light pollution is a concern, the Vigilant L-866/L-885 leverages Dialight’s precision optics to delivering optimum visibility at altitude for small planes and helicopters, with minimal light scatter above and below.

At just 28 pounds, the low-profile, lightweight unit also reduces wind resistance and makes for easier, safer installation. The Vigilant system operates on a low-voltage power supply and control box that can be placed at the base of the tower, eliminating the need to work with and in close proximity to high-voltage wiring and transmission lines.

The system is compatible with multi-unit synchronization from any single GPS controller. Each unit is backed by Dialight’s industry exclusive 5-year warranty.
