ATG Launches IRIS, the World’s Latest LED Airfield Ground Lighting

ATG airports officially launched IRIS, the world’s latest internationally compliant AGL (airfield ground lighting) LED.

The UK based airfield lighting specialist unveils its new IRIS lighting system to UK airport professionals in a series of events throughout July 2013. Those events have already been held at Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester and Heathrow Airports but two more are scheduled at Edinburgh and Belfast which will respectively take place on Wednesday July 10, 2013 and Thursday July 11, 2013.

The company says the product will then be available worldwide after the issuing of final FAA compliance certification. The FAA testing is already 95% complete and final FAA paperwork is anticipated by the end of August 2013.

Kevin Armstrong, ATG’s Sales Director, said: “Our objective was to create a brand new LED fitting that would not only be world class in terms of performance, but also ultra-reliable and easy to maintain. At a time when airports everywhere are making an effort to reduce their carbon emissions and airfield maintenance costs, IRIS will help them achieve this.”

The company says one of the major attractions of IRIS is the environmental benefits it brings to airport operators looking to adhere to green standards set by the ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation Programme. IRIS is designed to be recycled, LED’s reduce power consumption (resulting in less carbon dioxide emissions) and the fitting uses an internal closed loop control system, which monitors LED parameters, maintaining a consistent light output throughout the life of the fitting.

The company also emphasizes that a great deal of consideration has gone into the design of IRIS in order to reduce maintenance costs. The new product is assembled with minimum parts and interchangeable arrays, allowing airfield engineers to save on maintenance time and reduce the amount of spare parts needed. ATG also points out how IRIS fits into existing airfield architecture, saying it allows a quick changeover from old tungsten halogen to the new IRIS LED lights.
