Werma has extended its 280/281 series of obstruction beacons and now offers a type-B low-intensity obstruction beacon. The beacon has a brightness of 32 candela.

There is also a 230V version with monitoring function. If up to two of the total of 12 LED strips should fail, the beacon switches to a fault status or ‘shutdown’ mode. This can be easily identified with the aid of, for example, an additional current monitoring relay.

After the condition has been checked, the beacon remains in fault status for 30 minutes and is checked again.

The 281 beacon is claimed to be extremely robust and resistant to all sorts of adverse conditions, making it an essential element of flight safety. The materials used are saltwater and aviation fuel resistant and the lens cover is made of borosilicate glass.

It is suitable for use in and around airfields, as in such areas there is a legal requirement to fix obstruction beacons to structures above a certain height — masts, high buildings, chimneys and so on.
