Reference ENV 50234:1997
Title Aeronautical ground lighting electrical installation - Flashing lights: Equipment specifications and tests
Project Number 7221
Abstract/Scope This prestandard specifies general requirements for classification of flashing light systems used on airports or for ground based aviation lighting systems, for the luminaries, for the control cabinets and for their mechanical and electrical construction erection, together with the related tests. This prestandard is applicable to flashing light systems used for: - Sequential flashing approach lighting systems; - Runway threshold identification lights; - Runway lead-in lighting systems; - Medium and high intensity obstruction lighting systems. Alternately flashing lights used as runway guard lights are excluded from this prestandard. Attention is drawn to the fact that this prestandard covers all aspects of safety (electrical, thermal and mechanical). The purpose of this prestandard is to provide a set of requirements and tests which are applicable to the luminaries and their control equipment. In general, this prestandard covers safety requirements for all components of the system.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
