Kopp Glass, Inc., an ISO:9001 certified company, releases a new digital catalog of their incandescent product line as well as key technical information to support LED innovation in airfield and obstruction lighting applications

PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania - Airports demand reliable airfield lighting solutions to ensure safety throughout varying operations and visibility conditions. The industry is accelerating the replacement of incandescent lighting systems with new Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology, which offers many advantages including reduced maintenance and utility costs. However, LED technology comes with many design challenges to ensure safety and reliability as compared to traditional incandescent fixtures. While new requirements are still being developed to address the many challenges associated with LED technology, the demand for high performance LED lighting solutions is growing.

Kopp Glass helped develop the original industry standard for airfield and obstruction glass optics, having engineered solutions for the very first civilian standards. Drawn from this extensive experience, Kopp Glass releases this new catalog with key design considerations to help engineers overcome common challenges associated with LED technology and to support safe adoption of LED technology in the airfield and obstruction lighting industry.
