In fact, the use of a new LED generation and of the reflector internally designed has allowed the reduction of external dimensions to Ø176x205mm. The red XLFE-MIB series lighting fixture, with an intensity of more than 2000 candles and flashing operation, complies with the requirements of the ICAO Annex 14 for aviation obstruction warning lights of medium-intensity B type (corresponding to the FAA type of initials L- 864). The XLFE-MIB series has been designed for Zone 1 with an ‘Ex db’ optical source. The particular design avoids any type of optical error typical of the glass globes. As required by the ICAO regulations, the XLFE-MIB series has a flashing operation, standard at 20 fpm, upon request at 40 fpm. The light source also complies with EN/IEC 60079-28 standard (“op is” protection). The installation is facilitated by the reduced dimensions, the wiring is done with cable gland in a ‘Ex e’ enclosure, avoiding the use of sealed cable glands or the resin finishing at high heights. The signalling device is not a stand-alone device but it is part of a system that provides power from a panel. This choice reduces maintenance operations by making the power supplies accessible from the management panel.
