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.
