Obstruction Lighting

Solar and Powered LED Obstruction Lighting Solutions

Now part of US based SPX Corporation, Carmanah's Obstruction products will now be part of  Flash Technology, another SPX Corporation business.

Flash Technology has been making Obstruction lighting products in the USA since 1970. As such, we are able to offer a complete range of Obstruction lighting products from the smallest solar powered Obstruction marker light up to High Intensity powered lights, including Remote Monitoring options.

Our self-contained solar powered Low Intensity obstruction marking lights are perfect for marking towers and other obstructions for aerial and ground navigation, such as telecom towers, powerlines, windturbines, fence and barricade lighting, construction tower cranes, equipment marking and more. For Medium Intensity and High Intensity Obstruction requirements, we can offer traditional powered products for these applications to meet FAA and ICAO requirements.

All products are ideally suited to withstand the harsh environments typically encountered in oil and gas development projects, mining operations and other industrial development sites around the world. With our Solar Powered products no power cables needed, installation is quick and doesn't require specialized electricians.

Why Choose Flash Technology ?

We recognize that today there are many choices for Obstruction Lighting products, from cheap inferior generic products to alternative world class obstruction lighting solutions. Below is why we believe that you should carefully consider Flash's range of Solar LED products for your Obstruction Lighting Applications.

1. Latest Solar and LED Technology

Flash products are engineered to survive the rigors of industrial environments. We select and develop the best hardware, software, and firmware to achieve better energy efficiency, more robust design, and superior performance in a smaller size and lighter package. Flash products use the highest power LED's, high-grade VRLA AGM batteries, premium monocrystalline solar panels and rugged aluminum/polycarbonate enclosures. Our stringent standards and passion for our work differentiate us in a market where performance is crucial.

2. High Performance Optics

Flash Obstruction lights use the latest in visible and IR LED technology combined with custom optics to ensure that chromaticity is maintained over the entire range of operation – from low-intensity steady-on to high-intensity flashing. The smaller physical size of our LEDs allows for more precise placement, dramatically increasing product performance efficiency. Low-voltage drivers ensure that LEDs receive a constant drive level regardless of the battery system’s state of charge and ensure consistent and predictable illumination at all times

3. Proprietary Energy Management Systems

Effective energy management is essential for light performance and battery life. In cloudy or inclement weather, solar panels may be exposed only intermittently to the sunlight required to generate power. Flash Technology lights incorporate several unique energy management systems including Temperature Compensated Maximum Power Point Tracking and our patented Automated Light Control. These systems maximize the solar charging abilities of our products and manage energy expenditure throughout the calendar year to perform under the full range of weather conditions.

4. Well Proven Technology and Reliability 

Since 1970, Flash and Carmanah lights have been deployed around the globe providing critical lighting systems at industrial sites, on airfields, in marine environments and more. With over 400,000 lanterns sold worldwide, our products have been well tested and proven in some of the world's harshest environments for over 30 years, and as such Flash happily stands behind our products with multi-year warranties and extensive post-sales support.

All Flash Technology products are made in the USA, and come with either a 3 Year (Solar) or 5 Year (Wired) Warranty
