The lower cover consists of a treated aluminium casting; it is fastened to the dome by
means of three screws HSFH M5x12 (Fig. 1 - n 3). An O-ring is provided between dome
and lower cover too.
Inside the lower cover the lamps, on the lampholders, are connected to the insulating
strips or the electronic relays.
The cover is outside provided with one or two cable leads with plug L-823 and bush, a
grounding screw with yellow-green cable lead (with male faston terminal) and a valve (with
removable cap) for leak test.

The optical assembly consists of two prisms, two lamp and two coloured filters.
The prisms are mechanically clamped into the light dome by means of a mounting plate
with a gasket; the mounting plate is fixed by means of three screws HSFH M5x12 (Fig. 1 -
n 17). An additional teflon gasket is placed between the mounting plate and the prisms, to
avoid glass-metal direct contact. The prisms replacement is quick and easy and doesnt
require any sealing.
The lamps are of tungsten-halogen type, 48 W, 6,6 A, 1000 hour rated life, with dichroic
reflector and cable leads (with male faston terminals); they are mounted on a suitable plate
surely fastened to a mounting by means of a spring for easy and quick relamping. Plate,
mounting and sping are stainless steel.

J ust one optical assembly is available for this fixture (P/N 152.1700), infact RCLF hasnt
particular beam toes, in compliance with FAA 150/5345-46.
The lamps plate assembly, with a identification label, are always secured in a fixed position
on the lower cover, attached by means of four vibration-damping blocks.
One dichroic filter is placed in the rear side of the prism. The filter holder box is fixed to the
dome by means of two screws CH M5x10 (Fig. 1 - n 24).
Lamps, prisms and coloured filters are factory assembled; they may be field replaced if so
desired (parr. 3.4 - 4.3 - 4.4).

The light unit is supplied with one or two cable lead with plug and bush; it consists of two
single-pole teflon leads, size 2.5 sqmm, 0.500 m long, which end with a threaded bush
including two rounded male faston terminals. The plug is in compliance with FAA L-823 for
very quick coupling with the receptacle mounted on the shallow base.
If light unit is equipped with one cable lead with plug, both the lamps will work
simultaneously; If it is necessary to operate independently the two lamps, then two cable
leads with plug are necessary.

Bidirectional fixtures - one cable lead with plug and bush
The bush of the unique cable lead is screwed to the lower cover in correspondence to the
entry "A" (Figg. 4/6).
Each lamp is connected by means faston terminals to the relevant insulating strip, which is
fixed to the lower cover (one of the lamp male fastons is connected to one of the insulating
strip female ones). The insulating strips are connected to the bush of the unique cable lead
by means a pair of wires (one cable for each insulating strip) equipped at one end with
two female rounded terminals for connection to the bush male fastons and at the other end
with two female terminals for connection to the strip male fastons (Figg. 3/4 - n 2). A
third wire realizes the series connection between the insulating strips (Figg. 4/6 - n 3).

allow the series of more light fixtures on the secondary of one isolating transformer .
As alternative each insulated strip can be replaced by an electronic cutout relay (option
E) directly fixed to the lower cover (Fig. 4). In this case the lamp male terminals are
connected to the relay female faston, while the relay male fastons are connected to the
rounded cable lead male faston through the above described pair of wires. The third wire
realizes the series connection between the relays.

Bidirectional fixtures - two cable leads with plug and bush
Both the cable entries of the lower cover are used: the bush of the lamp A cable lead is
screwed to the lower cover in correspondence to the entry "A" and the bush of the lamp
B cable lead is screwed to the lower cover in correspondence to the entry "B" (Figg.
5/6).
Each lamp is connected by means faston terminals to the relevant insulating strip, which is
fixed to the lower cover (the lamp male fastons are connected to the insulating strip female
ones). The insulating strip is connected to the bush of the relevant cable lead by means a
pair of wires equipped at one end with two female rounded terminals for connection to the
bush male fastons and at the other end with two female terminals for connection to the
strip male fastons.
Each strip is suitable to seat a fuse cutout (option F), which on request can be supplied to
allow the series of more light fixtures on the secondary of one isolating transformer .
As alternative each insulated strip can be replaced by an electronic cutout relay (option

perpendicular to the pavement surface. The bottom surface must be flat or slightly
concave to assure that the shallow base rest securely and in true position. The
recess can best be drilled using a diamond-faced core drill in a sturdy, stable drill
rig.

3.0.2. Before installing the shallow base, be sure all surfaces of the recess are clean and
dry. If any of these surfaces is damp, it is desirable that it be dried and blown clean
with a compressed air blast.

3.0.3 Mark on the pavement surface the aiming direction of the light by chalk, nails or
other devices.

NOTE 1: For further information about location and connection circuit of the fixtures see
FAA AC 150/5340-30 specification.


3.1 INSTALLING SHALLOW BASE WITH THRU-FEED SYSTEM (MOUNTING
SYSTEM B) WITH CABLE LEADS TO BE LAID IN WIREWAYS

The wireways should be sawed using a diamond-faced saw, as shown in Figg. 11/12.
When wireways cross construction joints, the sawcuts should extend at least 25 mm below
the existing joint for a distance of 15 cm each side of the joint. In this case, the top 25 mm
of the wireway will have to be filled with an appropriate joint sealing filler. Before installing
the shallow base, be sure all surfaces of the wireways are clean and dry. If any of these
surfaces are damp, it is desirable that they are dried and blown with a compressed air
blast.

ATTENTION: do not handle the fixture by the lead wires.


3.1.1 Remove the light unit from the base, by unscrewing the two locking screws
complete with washers. Raise the light unit, by using the two lifting tools (or two
screwdrivers) inserted in the suitable slots provided on the dome.

3.1.2 Before placing the shallow base in the drilled hole, all external surfaces which will
be bonded to the pavement (except the feed-thru zone) should be slightly
sandblasted and must be cleaned with solvent to assure an adequate bond
between base and sealer. Do not handle the base by the lead wires.

4.10.2 Cleaning

Regular cleaning is necessary in order to ensure that in-pavement lighting fixtures operate
at maximum efficiency. The outside of the polycarbonate ring and channels for beam
output should be cleaned periodically as per paragraph 4.2.1. The regularity and type of
cleaning will be dictated by the weather and the location of the fixtures.

Snowplow operators should exercise extra care not to strike the light fixtures with
snowplow blades. After snow removal operations, inspect all light fixtures to locate and
replace, if necessary, any damaged light assemblies.
Passes over the light rows should be made with a power broom only if practical. Whenever
snowplows must traverse in-pavement light fixtures, they should be either travelling at less
than 10 km/h or have the blades lifted clear of the fixtures. Recommended snow removal
techniques are described in Airport Services Manual - Part 9 - Airport Maintenance
Practices or described in Faa AC 150/5200-30.



4.10.4 Monthly inspections

This light unit is designed to exclude both ground and surface water from entering. If the
lights are not properly maintained (e.g. screws not properly tightened and O-rings or
gaskets in bad condition) water may enter inside the fixture and create serious problems.
To prevent this from occurring, it is recommended that each fixture be inspected from the
presence of water at least once a month. More frequent inspection is desirable during and
following rainy season.


4.10.5 Screw tightness

Light unit locking screws should be checked for proper torque at least once every three
months or more frequently during the two-four weeks following the reinstallation of a
serviced light unit.


4.10.6 Leak testing

If any fixture contains water, remove the water and clean and dry the entire fixture.
Pressure test the fixture to find the leak. Inspect the O-ring and gasket grooves and clean.
The O-rings and gaskets should be replaced, the fixture repaired and reinstalled as
specified herein.
