Details Q-HAPI LED
The Q-HAPI system consists of a single lighting to provide a visual indication of the correct approaching path of the helicopter. In compliance with ICAO requirements, the Q-HAPI System is located adjacent to the nominal aiming point and aligned with the preferred approach directions. The angle of elevations setting of the Q-HAPI System is easy to adjust by the build in monitor showing the actual angle. The Q-HAPI System is below 25 cm and it is therefore approved for all helidecks installations, forming no obstruction for the helicopter. Each flight approach path is required to have a HAPI system.
A) This product must be connected to the Q72RI03C – Q-HAPI control system. The Controller is sold separately. B) When a complete helideck/heliport package is offered, the Status Light Controller can be built-in theQ-Control X series.
HAPI LIGHTThe Q-HAPI System has a module with l ight s which has a lens system that divides the light into 4 separate segments: 1. Flashing Green Light = Helicopter above the optimal approach slope (too high) 2. Fix Green Light = Helicopter on the slope 3. Fix Red Light = Helicopter slightly below the optimal slope (slightly too low) 4. Flashing Red Light = Helicopter below the optimal slope (too low) Depending on the viewing angle of the pilot in relation to th is system, he sees either the Flashing green or the Fix green or the Fix red or the Flashing Red light. The signal repetition rate of the flashing sectors must be greater than 2 Hz. In accordance with ICAO, the HAPI is capable of adjustment in elevation at any desired angle between 1 and 12 degrees above the horizontal with an accuracy of +/- 5 minutes of arc. The Q -HAPI System will switch off atomically when the vertical misalignment of a unit exceeds ±0.5 degrees (±30 minutes).
OFFSHORE / ONSHORE USAGEIn compliance with ICAO requirements, the Q -HAPI System must be located adjacent to the nominal aiming point and aligned in azimuth with the preferred approach directions. The angle of elevations setting of the Q -HAPI System must be such that, during appr oach, the pilot of the helicopter observing the upper boundary of the “below slope” signal (flashing red) clears all objects in the approach area by a safe margin. The Q -HAPI System is below 25 cm and it is therefore approved for all offshore helideck and onshore applications.
The signal repetition rate of the flashing sectors must be greater than 2 Hz.
In accordance with ICAO, the HAPI is capable of adjustment in elevation at any desired angle between 1 and 12 degrees above the horizontal with an accuracy of +/- 5 minutes of arc. The Q-HAPI will switch off automically when the vertical misalignment of a unit exceeds ±0.5 degrees (±30 minutes).
