Airfield Solar Wind Cone

Airfield Solar Wind Cone

Complies with:

  • ICAO Annex 14 Volume 1, 6th Edition Section 5.1.1.


The Solar Series LED internally lighted permanent wind cone (windsock) is rugged, reliable and the most widely deployed solar windsock in the industry. With NVG compatible LEDs, a patented swivel, all aluminum construction, and convenient counter weighted tilt mechanism the Solar Series LED windsock provides easy installation and quick fabric replacement. Operating in the most rugged conditions from the frozen Antarctic to deserts in the Middle East and Africa to the tropical Caribbean, the Solar Series LED Wind Cone provides true and tested reliable performance.  Solar Series LED windsocks mount on a single concrete platform compared to alternative products that require one platform for the tower and one for the power system and trenching with conduit and cable in between.

Equipped with a 100 watt solar panel, 100 AHr battery and optional frangible mounting system, the Solar Series LED windsock continues to perform flawlessly on all 5 major continents supporting international defence forces, international airports, resource industries, humanitarian aid organizations and oil & gas facilities.  Each solar wind cones can be custom designed for various heights, basket sizes and windsock colours, converted for portable applications, outfitted with visible and infrared obstruction lights and operate with custom radio control frequencies as required. The Solar Series Permanent LED Airfield Wind Cone S3612 model provides an immediate increase to safety of operations for takeoff and landings.
