Medium Intensity MIB-200
Obstacle warning lights
Medium intensity beacons
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has defined the specification for installation of Obstacle Warning Lights in the Annex 14 to the convention on international civil aviation, Volume 1 «Aerodrome design and operations» (July 1999).
The following structures are considered as obstacles to civil aviation:
- High Voltage overhead cables
- Electrical power generation stations
The ICAO recommends the installation of medium-intensity obstacle warning lights for structures above 45 m. For height above 150 m, the lighting of the structure should be completed with red and white marking.
The medium-intensity BA200 and BA202 obstacle warning lights are conforming the ICAO requirements for night beaconing (BA200 model with a luminous intensityInstallation
For structures not exceeding 105m, a single level of medium-intensity obstacle warning lights is
required by ICAO (Annex 14, Volume 1, figure 6.1).
Above 105 m, several beaconing levels are requested, with a maximum interval of 105 m between
For factory chimneys, the obstacle warning lights must be installed from 1.5 m to 3 m maximum from the top
of the structure. Three lights should be fixed regularly at 120°along the chimney circumference.
Lastly, the MIB-200 and MIA-202 models are flashing according to the ICAO requirements (20 to 60 flashes
per minute). Depending on the obstacle location (above a take off climb surface for example), the ICAO
requires uninterruptible beaconing in every circumstances ie. uninterruptible power system.Power supply and service continuity
The MIB-200 and MIA-202 obstacle warning lights are delivered with a driving box and a 5 m power
supply cable between the lamp and this box.
This cable is including a IP 68 fast connector on the driving box side. 48V and 230V-50Hz input voltage
are available. In case of beaconing of several tall structures on the same site (such as towers, wind
turbines…), a synchronized operation is available on request via optical fibre (optical fibre connection
A UPS cabinet with 12 h autonomy (0/ 20%) is available as well according to ICAO requirement for
uninterruptible beaconing in every circumstances.
