Solar Obstruction Light - Approved Lighting for FAA

MAPPS™ OB Series solar powered FAA obstruction lighting
Solar Powered Obstruction Lighting
Utility Transmission Tower
Due to FAA Regulations, LED warning beacon lights are required on many utility transmission towers. MAPPS systems are the most cost effective way to power these critical loads.

LED Obstruction Light Solar Systems

MAPPS™ OB Series solar powered FAA & ICAO obstruction lighting for utility transmission towers, telecom towers, wind farm testing, airports & tall structures.

Solar Electric Supply MAPPS™ OB Series are stand-alone photovoltaic power systems, designed to power medium intensity and low intensity FAA & ICAO LED obstruction lights. Applications include utility high voltage towers, wind farms, telecommunication towers, MET towers, airports, and FAA obstruction hazards.

All MAPPS™ OB Series Solar FAA & ICAO lighting systems are designed to meet or exceed the specifications of the 2008 FAA Bulletin on Solar Power Obstruction Lighting. Contact us for a free sizing analysis and quotation for your project today.
