ODALS (Omni-Directional Approach Lighting System)


Complies with:

  • FAA Advisory Circular 150/5345 – 51
  • Transport Canada K312


The Solar Series ODALs (Omni-Directional Approach Lights) are used to identify the approach end and centerline of the runway. The omnidirectional horizontal beam pattern, bright flashes and a sequential strobing flash pattern that rolls toward the runway threshold helps the pilot identify the runway in use. Three intensity settings allow the approach to be used under changing weather conditions.


  • High Intensity: 5000 effective candela nominal
  • Medium Intensity: 1,500 effective candela nominal
  • Low Intensity: 300 effective candela nominal
  • 60 flashes per minute – day
  • 360° horizontal coverage
  • 8° vertical beam


  • Portable LED Unidirectional Approach Lights
  • Emergency LED Unidirectional Approach Lights
  • Temporary LED Unidirectional Approach Lights
