Carmanah’s internally illuminated LED solar wind cones use proven solar technology to provide a flexible and adaptable wind direction indicator that can easily be placed wherever needed for quick installation and minimal ongoing maintenance. Featuring crisp LED illumination, Carmanah wind cones improve the visibility of wind direction in night and low-light conditions. Carmanah wind cones come in both permanent and portable designs.

Easy Installation and Relocation
No specialized work crews required. Limited air traffic disruption; functions immediately upon installation. Optional handheld controller allows for wireless operation including mode changes for enhanced visibility in poor weather conditions up to 4 km (2.5 mi) away.

Rugged, Weatherproof Design
Sealed bearings for precision vaning and true wind direction in all types of weather and wind conditions. Additional bearing covers provided for protection against dirt and moisture. Water-repellent and color-fast nylon sock is resistant to rot and mildew. Standard orange or white/orange sock.

Reliable Performance
The SPS provides power to the wind cone in a simple-to-install package. Nominal 10-day autonomy (operation without solar charging) ensures consistent performance with a minimum 5-year battery service life.

“Carmanah airfield lights saved lives in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom II at Balad Air Base. Your sturdy maintenance-free self-contained lights were deployed in one day, lighting our parking pads, refueling areas, taxiways and four landing pads for our 140 plus helicopters. They instantly made our operations safer. Great product.”

“We tested the A704 and I must say it is nice. It was on this morning when I pulled in. Yesterday we had a midday thunderstorm and it came on due to the overcast. I was surprised at how little darkness it needed to trigger operational mode.”

“We have received great feedback from our range control officers and the aircrews alike. The lights have truly lived up to and far exceeded our expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend them to our fellow ranges.”
