The Solar Runway Light is a next-generation, self-contained solar light specifically designed to survive the harshest environments with minimal ongoing maintenance. It is a robust, completely self-contained LED solar aviation light designed for a range of aviation applications including permanent approach, runway edge, threshold, helipad aviation lighting. This fully functioning light can be controlled from the tower with no costly cabling or trenching required when fitted with RF.

The Solar Runway Light includes the latest solar technology including active MPPT (maximum power point tracking – maximising the power extracted from the solar panels) and enhanced optics for improved performance and efficiency with IR available.
