New Aviation Warning Light Signals The Way

Product development is what drives businesses such as D. G. Controls Ltd forward, and having our own full-time development engineer based at our UK office gives us a reactivity second to none when it comes to developing products to customers’ requirements. 

Recognising our position in the aircraft warning sector, orders are now in from our key distributors for the newest in the range, the SBB LED 10 Candela Aircraft Warning beacon.  Officially termed the SBB/*/*/LED/Type A/Red, this little beacon meets the ICAO regulations for low level intensity warning of aircraft.  Being a 360 degree viewing enclosure, the SBB Type A uses different LEDs from the larger SBE and SBG Type A products, offering a higher light intensity per LED, and meaning that the required brightness levels are met within the much smaller series B enclosure.

Series B is an IP65 rated enclosure, pre-moulded with M10 and M20 cable gland entries.  The lens fits with a specially designed O-ring and tightens on a bayonet-style fitting, securing with a tamper screw  into a blind hole.  Carefully designed to minimise dust and dirt build-up, and fully water-tight, Series B is perfectly suited to the outdoor environment, and with long-life LEDs, makes maintenance a thing of the past.

Changing Gear For Growth

The deegee team have always been keen to undertake training and new experiences, and Office Manager Lisa Baum leads by example. 

A 2 day Change Management course set in a beautiful location in Middle Aston, Oxfordshire took Lisa and 8 other delegates from various backgrounds through a detailed explanation of the change process within an organisation, and the best way to manage these changes.  

“Practical outdoor tasks which involved planning, strategic thinking, and crucially communication were great fun and a very useful learning tool.  We had no option but to get stuck in, as you can see from the glamorous head-gear!!   I feel the overall experience has been very beneficial to me,” said Lisa.  “By making me aware of the importance of thorough planning, in addition to maintaining good channels of communication throughout, and taking these into account, future changes will be smoother and more structured transitions.”

Closing with an open forum session which allowed all delegates to discuss issues or incidents that they have experienced within their organisation during the change process, the course remained thoroughly relevant to the real-life situations of the attendees.
