ILED Aquarius CIRCLE-H Helideck Lighting System

ILED Aquarius CIRCLE-H Helideck Lighting System

Helicopter deck signalisation lighting has now taken off into a new direction with the Tideland CIRCLE-H Lighting System.

Throughout the industry, it is now fully agreed and accepted that the old method of illuminating the TD/PM Circle and H with flood lights results in the common dangerous problem of creating the disorientating “black hole” effect and at the same time being a source of glare to the helicopter pilots.

Developed with close guidance from the CAA and HCA certified as in full accordance with the requirements of CAP 437, Tideland’s CIRCLE-H TD/ PM Lighting System provides the optimum solution to these problems. Cleanly and clearly indicating the TD/PM Circle and H, the Tideland CIRCLE-H is the only fully certified system of its type – providing optimised safety – without compromise.

The unique integrated mounting plate is able to be customised to suit specific requirements and with a choice of fixing and installation methods to suit all deck types, the CIRCLE-H can be installed as a standalone system or as a fully integrated total helideck lighting and status light safety system solution.

In line with CAP 437 requirements, our CIRCLE-H system has being independently tested and certified – by DEKRA – Attestation of Conformity No: 2168390.01 AOC

CIRCLE-H is less than 25 mm high, even with the mounting plate. The system is comprised of just 4 main parts. The light unit is easily connected by an Ex-certified, patented plug system. Only cables and conduits are variable – to the D-Value of the helideck.

Tideland’s CIRCLE-H system is manufactured from marine grade aluminium – which is by far and away the best material for marine applications and for temperature management control. The one-piece mounting plate is designed so that it can easily be adapted to suit all types of deck construction.

ILED Aquarius Illuminated Windsock

ILED Aquarius Illuminated Windsock

The ILED Aquarius Illuminated Windsock is manufactured out of corrosion resistant materials. All exposed material, with the exception of the lighting fixture itself, is Stainless steel AISI 316L. Also available as an optional extra is an integral Red obstruction light.

The ILED Aquarius Illuminated Windsock provides pilots with an indication of the wind direction as specified by IMO Modu Code, CAA CAP 437 and ICAO Annex 14. These regulations require the presence of at least one windsock, which, if the helideck is intended for use at night, must be illuminated. Utilising Tideland’s ILED technology, the windsock is illuminated internally, thereby minimising glare and thus increasing safety.

The ILED Aquarius Illuminated Windsock is just one of the products in Tideland’s complete range of ILED helideck signalisation and lighting solutions, which includes the CIRCLE-H and Helideck Status Light (Wave-Off) Systems as well as perimeter lights, obstruction warning lights and floodlights.

The ILED Aquarius Illuminated Windsock is manufactured out of corrosion resistant materials. All exposed material, with the exception of the lighting fixture itself, is Stainless steel AISI 316L. For the lighting fixture aluminium was chosen because of its excellent thermal conductivity, ensuring that the LEDs have the longest possible service life. The alloy used is extremely corrosion resistant and recommended for offshore use.

Also available as an optional extra is an integral Red obstruction light – which also uses Tideland’s ILED technology. Available as either certified to ATEX Zone 1, or as an industrial Safe Area-version – the windsock system is also ideal for onshore installations such as petro-chemical works, helipads and airports. As with all Tideland products, the ILED Aquarius Illuminated Windsock is designed to require an absolute minimum of maintenance.

Tideland’s sealed unit philosophy, which keeps all contaminants and corrosive influences away from sensitive electronics, combined with the ATEX/ IECEx Ex e certification means that only a periodic visual inspection is required, whilst smart design and the use of the highest grade materials and components enables excellent heat management that ensures the longest possible operating life.

An example of the smart design that sets the windsock apart from all others is the unique reflector mechanism which completely removes the need to use moving electrical parts – such parts being highly prone to failure, especially in the corrosive environment encountered offshore. The innovative design and use of extremely durable materials result in increased operational safety and a lower total cost of ownership.

ILED Dorado Helideck Status Light

ILED Dorado Helideck Status Light

The ILED Dorado is hermetically sealed, so as to ensure that environmental conditions do not affect the functionality of the light. The housing is manufactured from marine grade aluminium alloy – making the product extremely resistant to seawater.

The purpose of the Helideck Status Light System is to warn a pilot of a condition that can be hazardous for the helicopter, its occupants, or others. In essence, the Status Light tells the pilot not to land on the helideck. Such hazardous conditions can be a gas release (the gas could cause the engine to stall, while the hot exhaust could ignite a flammable gas mixture with disastrous consequences.

As the Status Light System should not be activated during normal operating conditions, and the consequences of the system not operating properly when it is activated (by F&G alarm), it is paramount the system is as reliable as possible.

In addition to meeting all CAP437 mandated requirements, the Tideland Helideck Status Lights incorporate smart electronics which are in constant communication (including when the lantern is not activated) with the Tideland Status Light Control Panel. Thus, the system continually checks itself, foregoing the need of regular testing while ensuring the highest possible reliability; and contributing significantly to increased operational safety of the installation and allowing the crew to focus on the job at hand.

The housing is manufactured from AlMg(5)Si, a very corrosion resistant alloy – making the product extremely resistant to seawater. To further increase corrosion resistance the housing is hard anodized and finished with a Teflon coating. A special and unique thermal management system ensures that the cooling fins of the ILED Dorado provide for highly efficient cooling – even at high ambient temperatures. The Ex e mb method of protection, which consists of completely encapsulating all electronics, not only makes this fixture suitable for hazardous area (the fixture is certified for zone 1&21) but also protects if from corrosive environments.

The smart, innovative design, extremely low maintenance requirements and exceptional reliability and life expectancy of the Tideland Status Light System allow you to minimize costs while at the same time increasing operational helicopter safety.

ILED Aquarius Helideck Floodlight

ILED Aquarius Helideck Floodlight

The ILED Aquarius Helideck Floodlight is made with an anodized, marine grade aluminium casting, making it highly resistant to seawater environments and therefore perfectly suitable for marine applications. The integral mounting bracket allows the unit to be easily fixed and the direction of the beam in the horizontal to be adjusted.

Sand cast out of an extremely corrosion resistant AlMg(5)Si alloy, hard anodized and finished with a Teflon coating, the ILED Aquarius helideck floodlight will keep performing in even the most extreme conditions. The use of a PMMA Fresnel lens which is mounted on toughened glass results in a very tough, impact and vibration resistant fixture with a focussed light beam which minimizes glare.

The fixture is hermetically sealed, and all electronics are encapsulated, completely protecting them from the corrosive influences of a marine environment. The innovative internal cooling duct draws in cool air behind the LEDs, keeping them cool and ensuring an exceptionally long life expectancy without the degradation of light output over time common high-output LED fixtures are subject to.

The result of the use of durable materials, smart and innovative design choices results in an extremely reliable helideck floodlight which requires an absolute minimum of maintenance.

The ILED Aquarius Floodlight is available as either an Ex-hazardous Area or Industrial Safe Area version.
