IEC 61820-1:2019 covers principles of design and installation requirements for AGL systems including control, monitoring and transformation of energy, the cables and any electrical component utilized to produce the light intended to be used as a visual aid for air and ground navigation. This document defines in general the fundamental principles to provide safe, reliable and efficient operation of AGL systems independent of the particular system design. Where certain aspects of design are specific to a particular type of system (e.g. series-circuit), these are supplemented in the applicable part.

IEC 61821:2011 applies to the maintenance of AGL constant current series circuits. This International Standard: - covers constant current series circuits for AGL installed at aerodromes and heliports; - concentrates on providing the safety requirements for the maintenance of an AGL constant current series circuit. It is recognized that AGL constant current series circuits of different design characteristics and parameters are in existence; - is mainly concerned with safety to persons by specifying the rules and fundamental principles for the maintenance of AGL constant current series circuits; - is not intended to apply to AGL primary series circuits supplied directly from a mains constant voltage source; - is not intended to be used for public street lighting, roadway lighting or any other installation requiring the use of constant current series circuits. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2002. It is a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: a) addition of references to normative references; b) addition of notes in Clauses 5, 6 and 7; c) modification of pre-work procedures in item e) of 7.2.2.

IEC 61822:2009 specifies the requirements for a Constant Current Regulator (CCR) having a nominal output of 6,6 A for use in an aeronautical ground lighting constant current series circuit. However, CCRs may be manufactured which have a different power rating (kVA) and current steps than those specified in this standard in order to be used on existing circuits. This standard should be applied where appropriate for these CCRs. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2002. It is a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: a) revision and update of terms and definitions; b) addition of new paragraphs, such as 'Nominal output current range and tolerances'; c) modification of some paragraphs, such as those related to 'Local control' and 'Remote control'; d) deletion of some paragraphs, in particular 'Power transformers' and 'Output current indicator'.

This European Standard is intended to give general minimum frame requirements for units that are independent of the technology used for switching and/or monitoring of individual or group of lamps in an AGL series circuit. This European Standard • applies to the units that are directly electrically connected to the primary or secondary side of an AGL series circuit and are needed to provide the selective switching and/or monitoring of lamps, • does not cover communication protocols and application procedures, • does not treat system aspects that influence the AGL operation. NOTE These units may be used forming part of either a SMGCS or A-SMGCS to guide and/or control the surface movement of aircraft by means of visual aids.

This standard specifies the characteristics of aeronautical ground lighting series trans-formers (AGLST) used in aeronautical ground lighting for 6,6 A series circuits, at a service voltage of up to 5 kV, supplied by constant current regulators up to 30 kVA in rating. AGL series transformers provide power to airport lighting luminaires or other loads (resistive) from their secondary circuits. The AGL series transformers provide continuity of the series circuit in the event of a loss of the load on the transformer, and electrical isolation between the primary circuit supplied by a constant current regulator, and the secondary circuit connected to the load under conditions defined in this standard.

This standard covers signs installed in the movement area to provide pilots and vehicle operators with information. The Standard is applicable to signs with built-in illumination arrangements using tungsten filament, tubular flourescent and other discharge lamps on supply voltages not exceeding 1000 V. The standard shall not apply to non-illuminated signs or signs illuminated by external light sources. The object is to provide design and construction specifications for the signs that are considered necessary to meet the operational standards adopted by ICAO and to cover all aspects of safety (electrical, thermal and mechanical). The signs may be energised from parallel power supply or by connection to a constant current series circuit used for taxiway or runway lighting systems.

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.
