Somerville, Victoria, Australia – 22 October 2020 – Avlite’s new and certified obstruction lighting is now available for pre-order. The latest AV-OL-LI, MI and CMI lights are available in AC and DC versions retaining best in class power consumption. Solar systems are also available to provide power without the need for cabling or generators.
All lighting now features concurrent IR, allowing pilots using night-vision goggles to see obstructions.
Predefined general-purpose input and outputs (I/O) add versatility for the integration of the product into new and existing systems.
Our new obstruction lighting is now certified to more regulations. These include:
Every light connected to our recently released AV-OL-CTRL-T1, T2 or T3 standard controller or bought as part of our AV-OL-KT range is now available with remote monitoring via SATCOM or GSM. Customers can now utilise this connectivity via our Star2M Web Portal. It provides the user with the ability to manage, monitor and control lights with access secure and reliable data. The portal can provide status reports to users when needed, simplifying the monitoring process.
The Avlite Obstruction Lighting range has been developed by our Engineering team to meet new FAA and extended ICAO regulations.
Michael Walker, Head of Global Sales, Marketing and Digital, explains that the release of Obstruction Lighting range completes months of research and development, completing our wired range.
“Avlite is proud to have developed a full line of certified wired obstruction lighting. Adding on from our Obstruction controller release, our new range is feature-rich and meets the latest FAA 43J and additional ICAO standard of LIOL Type E. Our new Obstruction lights are available for pre-order now,” said Walker.

It is a great benefit to our community to have this [Avlite’s helipad lighting system] installed and commissioned at CareFlight’s Toowoomba base. Avlite’s particular type of lighting lends itself to a lot of applications given that it’s easy to install, doesn’t require electricity as its solar powered and can be remotely controlled. It’s a fabulous technology, obviously a world leading technology and from my point of view, it’s great to see an Australian Manufacturing success story.

For an aerodrome operator to provide equivalent night-use runway standards for the RFDS and other fixed-base users at around one-third of the cost of a traditional mains-powered runway and taxiway lighting system, there has to be greater recognised merit for this (solar-powered) alternative especially in a location like ours where it is sunny most days of the year.
Our industry appreciates the on-going support of this Australian owned and operated company whose solar powered airfield and helipad lighting systems assist in the improvement of safety for both fixed and rotary wing aeromedical flight crews and passengers around the country.
As the busiest Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) based in the State [of Queensland], the benefits [of Avlite’s helipad lighting] are many. Not only does it [the system] enhance the safety of our operations, it also helps us to continue to improve our level of service delivery to the community and to our customers.

These lights [AV-70s] have been a great asset to many outback communities that previously we were not able to access 24/7.
Just to let you know the new airport floodlight has now been installed for several weeks and the medical staff and Power and Water staff [who look after the airport] agree it has made things much easier and safer for night-time medivacs. Your assistance with enabling us to have this basic but important infrastructure is much appreciated.
Since starting our distributorship with Avlite, we have gone from strength to strength with the great range of solar products and of course the fantastic support of the Avlite staff. It’s been a good year for us. May it continue.
Re: Avlite AV70 taxiway lights, are working really well. Thank you for your assistance in getting our ramp up and running.

The lights are installed and are operating beautifully.
We did install all of the lights. We even used a few red lights as obstruction markers on top of 68 meter power line towers. I finally found a high quality camera and took some photos. I will send them to you as soon as I can download them. We submitted some additional light orders to our contracting office, so you can expect to receive a bit solicitation from them soon. The lights are working great and we appreciate the support.
