The new TEF 9980 Status lights is designed to fulfil the latest requirements of CAA UK CAP 437, as well as operator’s needs for products that are cost-effective, reliable, requiring no maintenance and applicable for use in all environments.
Maintenance and Inspection free
The maintenance and inspection free design translates into a light that is never to be opened by the owner. The manufacturing process includes flushing and filling the inside with slightly over-pressured nitrogen, which eliminates the risk of condensation. The lamp is fully monitored, also in standby mode, ensuring correct function and light output. An alarm will arise in the control system in case of a system failure.
The new TEF 9980 is made of powder-coated seawater resistant aluminum and a durable glass dome, resulting in low weight. The stainless steel mounting bracket ensures a quick and safe installation, and the external junction box allows large sized power cables to be terminated. Total height of TEF 9980 is less than 25cm, which means that the customer can easily install the light directly on the helideck.
