FEC Heliports to exhibit newly launched HEMS-Star Helipad Lights at Heli-Expo 2016, USA

At the forthcoming HAI Heli-Expo in USA, FEC Heliports will be exhibiting HEMS-Star, their new Portable Battery Powered Rechargeable LED Helipad Lighting System.

The HEMS-Star® Helipad Light is an advanced battery powered, microprocessor controlled light designed for rapid deployment in temporary and emergency situations to provide safe and effective marking at designated or ad-hoc helicopter landing areas.

HEMS-Stars are capable of showing, at programmable intensities, white, green, blue, red and infra-red (IR) or a combination of visible colour and infra-red to support pilots wearing Night Vision Goggles (NVGs).

The HEMS-Star can be individually programmed to display flash patterns to include Helipad Identification Beacon and Morse Code, and have the ability to detect light levels for automatic sunset and sunrise switching.

HEMS-Stars are fitted as standard with an 868 MHz (915 MHz in USA) UHF transceiver and each individual light or set of lights can be programmed, interrogated and controlled by wireless commands. Using this function, HEMS-Stars can be operated by Remote Lighting Controller or using a PC/Tablet with the Zulu "dongle" transceiver with USB connector provided with each case as standard. Wireless can set up, test and control groups of lights via the UHF transceiver operational up to 2km away.

Each set of 8 HEMS-Star is supplied in a toughened 'Nanuk' resin case incorporating a power cable to simultaneously charge all units in the case from mains at 100-240V AC or in vehicles at 13.5-28VDC, from solar panels or wind turbines. Each light has an integrated advanced charge management system to ensure optimum charging and battery condition and life, whilst ‘Traffic Light' LEDs indicate the state of charge of each battery and further indicators give confirmation of correct charging.

Typical battery life depending on colour, light level and flash pattern, can be up to 30 hours.

HEMS-Star is IP65 rated and fitted with rubber soled solid stainless steel bases to ensure stability under the toughest rotor-wash conditions.

HEMS-Star will be demonstrated on the FEC Stand Number 9139 at HAI Heli-Expo from 1st March 2016 to 3rd March 2016 Kentucky, USA
