Our very new LIDSTM Technology is your solution. Our Lighting Intensity Dimming Solution dims the lighting equipment based on the visibility around the wind farm.
Our solution maintains a safe acquisition distance for pilots, while greatly reducing the intrusiveness of the light to the surrounding community. The community will be able to regain a much more serene environment.
LIDSTM offers a safe and low-cost alternative, and it will greatly reduce the nuisance of the lights for surrounding communities.
85 % OF THE TIME – IN LOW MODE
The science involved in determining visibility with the sensor we are using is called the Forward Scatter Principle. This equipment allows us to make a visibility reading at Point A and extrapolate as to the visibility at Point B (5 km out) and at Point C (10 km out).
The sensor is robust, stable, heated, and almost maintenance-free (in our case, we must clean the lenses every six months.)
Not reinventing the wheel – FAA currently allows this technology to establish Runway Visual Range (RVR)
- ± 50 m up to 600 m
- Between 600 and 1500 m the accuracy is 10%
- Above 1500 m the accuracy is 80%
- To ensure consistency and reliability regarding the measurments, many sensors are installed around the wind farm.
