Obstruction lighting system for high voltage lines

BALISOR B 360KV and more
  • suitable for high voltage up to 550KV with fixing accessories adapted to the diameter of the cable
  • rigid capacitive element in aluminium easy to install
  • optimized distance of 300mm between the power cable and the capacitive element providing optimal power to the light
  • clamps adapted to the diameter of the cable
  • long life BALISOR lamp B49 P/N100618 with interference suppression included
  • red fixed color with light intensity higher than 10 candelas, the BALISOR® fall into the ICAO low intensity category.
  • a very long lifetime of the balisor lamp, essential to continuous operation of high voltage lines
  • robust, operates as soon as power line is turned on, no current in the conductor is required

The power supply by capacitive elements ensures a constant light intensity whatever is the value of the electric current crossing the line


High-voltage lines are major hazards for low-flying aircraft. Placing beacons on pylons is not sufficient to ensure safety due to the very long spans of cable (extract of Aerodrom Design Manual chapter 14.7 annex 4). The BALISOR® system (created by OBSTA in the 60's) is a beacon for high voltage lines. Its conductors take the power required directly from the line.
