FAA Lighting Towers Rule: You Must Monitor Obstruction Lights
How and why FCC Regulations Affect You
FAA legislation and strict standards have drawn attention to the benefits of implementing high-quality monitoring solutions.
It also brings forth the argument that alarm monitoring is more critical in its application for antenna towers than any other area of your network.
By taking a look at just two of the lighting tower rules from the FCC's regulations for tower light monitoring, you will be able to see how implementing a monitoring system can offer a solution to growing FAA concerns among tower owners.
How The FCC's Lighting Towers Rule Set Affects You
Sec. 17.47- Inspection of antenna structure lights states that the owner of any antenna structure must make an observation of antenna's lights at least once every 24 hours.
Sec. 17.48- Notification of extinguished lights. This regulation requires immediate notification of any extinguishment or improper functioning of any burning light or any flashing obstruction light.
