ILED Dorado Helideck Status Light

The ILED Dorado is hermetically sealed, so as to ensure that environmental conditions do not affect the functionality of the light. The housing is manufactured from marine grade aluminium alloy – making the product extremely resistant to seawater.

The purpose of the Helideck Status Light System is to warn a pilot of a condition that can be hazardous for the helicopter, its occupants, or others. In essence, the Status Light tells the pilot not to land on the helideck. Such hazardous conditions can be a gas release (the gas could cause the engine to stall, while the hot exhaust could ignite a flammable gas mixture with disastrous consequences.

As the Status Light System should not be activated during normal operating conditions, and the consequences of the system not operating properly when it is activated (by F&G alarm), it is paramount the system is as reliable as possible.

In addition to meeting all CAP437 mandated requirements, the Tideland Helideck Status Lights incorporate smart electronics which are in constant communication (including when the lantern is not activated) with the Tideland Status Light Control Panel. Thus, the system continually checks itself, foregoing the need of regular testing while ensuring the highest possible reliability; and contributing significantly to increased operational safety of the installation and allowing the crew to focus on the job at hand.

The housing is manufactured from AlMg(5)Si, a very corrosion resistant alloy – making the product extremely resistant to seawater. To further increase corrosion resistance the housing is hard anodized and finished with a Teflon coating. A special and unique thermal management system ensures that the cooling fins of the ILED Dorado provide for highly efficient cooling – even at high ambient temperatures. The Ex e mb method of protection, which consists of completely encapsulating all electronics, not only makes this fixture suitable for hazardous area (the fixture is certified for zone 1&21) but also protects if from corrosive environments.

The smart, innovative design, extremely low maintenance requirements and exceptional reliability and life expectancy of the Tideland Status Light System allow you to minimize costs while at the same time increasing operational helicopter safety.
