Airfield Lighting Control & Monitoring System
Avimar Mida RCMS
The Avimar/Mida Remote Control System is designed for small and medium size airports and heliport, to replace traditional hardware panels giving the operator a more accurate information on the operation of the airport. A number of new features are included in the system like alarm and logging system for analyzis of malfunctions and also for analyzing incidents regarding the operation of the AFL system.
The Remote Control System is built with a bus structure using standard protocol and components.
This drastically reduces the wiring, the number of components, the space needed for the installation¬†and minimizes the time needed to install the system. A fully redundant system can be designed using a dual bus and two workstations in the tower. One or more remote monitoring stations can be interfaced to the system by a standard network connection.
The Control System can easily interface to existing equipment like multi-wire CCR’s with one or¬†several small PLC’s or remote I/O systems.
The¬†Avimar/Acams¬†Airfield Lighting control and monitoring system¬†(ALCMS)¬†is designed for larger airport, and allows the user to effectively control the various airfield lighting systems including runway, approach, taxiway, stop bars, apron etc. The lights can be switched off and on individually or in groups. The intensity can be controlled for specific lights according to preconfigured intervals.
The¬†Avimar/Acams¬†ALCMS can be easily adapted to interface to any type of airfield lighting equipment including a combination of equipment from different manufacturers. The control of several different airfield lighting systems can be integrated into a single homogeneous control panel with the¬†Avimar/Acams¬†solution.
The system can include monitoring of alarms related to the airfield lighting equipment and also other miscellaneous alarms. Data logging is available as an option allowing all operator activations to be logged and stored in a database providing valuable information in the case of an incident investigation.
