Airfield Ground Lighting Monitoring and Control
MC Solutions Srl have grown on the footprint of an inventor Umberto Cazzani who strongly believed in his ideas in the ‘80s, and is now a reality of excellence in AGL Airfield Ground Lighting monitoring and control: runway lights management, automatic surface guidance control SMGCS and runway incursion prevention on Optical Fiber technology. Revolutionary ideas in separating cable, sending data on Optical Fiber granting safety, speed and efficiency. A wide product range has been developed: monitoring devices, measurement instruments to check AGL and ALCMS performance & compliance to FAA/EASA/ICAO regulations, pc based ALCMS.
AGL monitoring and control on optical fiber
MC Solutions offers a complete product range both hardware and software to monitor and remote control the Airfield ground lighting as well as the secondary services on optical fiber technology. MIA SYSTEM is the complete modular system that includes the software and remote control of field devices: MCLO modules, CDU Crossing Detection Units to prevent runway incursion and manage the SMGCS – lead-on lights- GPI General Purpose Interface and UNI-CONV Universal Converter.
The MIA System is modular: we can integrate and interface any existing monitoring structure, any kind of CCR Unit and we can communicate with any kind of protocol LonWorks, RS485, RS232, J-BUS.
The expertise in data conversion and transmission has been developed in several custom-made solutions in different kind of high tech and industrial application.
Optical fiber mastery
The mastery in the use of optical fiber has been applied to many different sectors, one of them is the distribution of data and professional high-quality video systems for conference virtual rooms and international events such as Formula 1 racing.
The ALCMS Airfield Lighting Control and Monitoring System MIA has been developed following and going far beyond the international regulations: FAA L890; EASA; ICAO 9157 Part 5.
Has been then developed a simulation program that runs on the real custom-made software, on the customer’s airfield, to simulate the real alarms and the different situations that may occur: alarm to emergency services, CCR malfunctioning alarms, runway incursion alarm, runway approaching change, taxiway viability changes just to give some examples.
This simulation program is used as a test for customer requirements, as a preliminary test before up load and then as a training tool to tower and maintenance operators.
Measurement Instruments and compliance in timing
The use of High-Tech structures has suggested the development of professional instruments to check the performance and demonstrate the reliability of the optical fiber structure and MIA ALCMS functionality.
The LTC Lamp Time Control instrument can check any kind of AGL response time due to a lamp failure, issues and prints an official report to verify the compliance of the airport lighting plant.
It is as well available KIT-FO which is another instrument to test the optical fiber quality, the correct installation and then the optimal huge amount of data that can transmit on the contrary of powerline communication.
