Airfield Lighting Products - Lighting the way

GE Airfield Lamp Products are a very important element of your total airfield lighting system. These high quality, high reliability lamps are designed to get the highest performance from your lighting equipment. In conjunction with FAA and ICAO approved fixtures and constant current power supply systems, GE Airfield lamps constitute your front line of defence against unnecessary outages and high maintenance costs. When re-lamping, keep in mind that the substitution of lamps other than those for which the fixture was designed can result in erratic and unsatisfactory performance of the equipment.

Applications & Fixtures
The airport environment has many specific lighting locations and functions, each with their own requirement for fixtures and lamp sources. GE makes a broad range of lamps for all the major applications on the airfield. Some of these applications include:

  • Thresh-Hold
  • Runway Centerline
  • Runway Edge
  • Approach/End
  • Taxiways – Centerline & Edge
  • PAPI – Precision Approach Path Indicator and more

The lamps can be grouped by power supply systems. These systems – constant current series, are designed to deliver a set current to all the lamps independent of position on the airfield. This enables each lamp to run at its designed light output and ensuring the proper illumination of each fixture. There are typically three systems – two constant current systems (20 amperes and 6.6 amperes) and constant voltage system, sometimes referred to as a multiple design systems. The constant voltage system can be 120v, 130v or 240v.


UVC Germicidal for healthcare applications: water, air, and surface sterilisation

As our society demands a cleaner environment to live and work in, GE provides a safer and more efficient sterilisation technique. UVC Germicidal lamps' special glass transmits a spectral band of UV light effective for sterilisation. The UVC wavelength of 254 nm is proven to destroy air-borne bacteria, viruses, and mold spores by preventing DNA replication, effective even if the organism has become immune to other disinfection methods.
