A650 Taxiway Light

A compact and extremely robust Solar LED light suited to Taxiway and Barricade Lighting applications. Available in both Wireless and Non Wireless versions, these lanterns have proven their reliability under the most extreme conditions in some of the most remote and unforgiving locations on the planet. The A650 is one of Carmanah's most successful lanterns ever, and there are thousands of these lanterns installed all over the world.

A650 Taxiway Light
  • Compliance: Meets current FAA and ICAO regulations for airfield Taxiways (blue).
  • Easy installation: No cables mean no specialized work crews required for installation, limited air traffic disruption and lights are immediately operational.
  • Highly Durable Construction: Premium grade UV resistant, polycarbonate/polysiloxane co-polymer body and lens material.
  • Long Lasting Batteries:  Batteries last 5-10 years in the field, withstanding operating temperatures within -45° F to 190° F (-43° C to 88° C).
  • Self-contained: all components are incorporated within a compact, stand-alone unit for easy deployment and relocation.  
  • Bright and Low Maintenance Lighting: LED lights last 100,000+ hours and never need a change. Green light peak intensity reaches up to 10 candela.
  • Low maintenance: Replaceable battery pack extends service life beyond five years, reducing total cost of ownership and resulting in significant cost savings.
  • Designed and tested to the toughest industrial standards: MIL-STD-202G: Humidity, Immersion, Vibration, Shock; MIL-STD-810G: Solar Radiation, Salt Fog; EN 60945: ESD, EMI, EMC; IP68; L70.
  • Secure and long-range wireless control (optional): Wireless signal encrypted in 256 bit for added security and controllable up to 4 km. Extra signal strenth increases reliability in poor weather or when not in line-of-sight.
  • Infrared NVG Mode (wireless model only):  Infrared LEDs that makes the light visible with Night Vision Goggles (NVG) for military operations.
High powered LEDs. Colour-specific temperature corrected LED drivers provide consistent intensity under all operating conditions.
ICAOand SAE25050 (FAA) compliant chromaticity.
NVG-compatible infrared (IR) LEDs (wireless model only).
