Waco Airport Airfield Lighting Control System

Projects Description

This system was engineered, programmed and fabricated by Rural Electric working in partnership with the Airport staff and Project Engineer. The Color Touch Screen shown is located in the Air Traffic Control Tower and used to control the airfield lighting components via a PLC in the Lighting Vault.
The system is operated in two modes. Tower Control Mode is used by Air Traffic Control Tower personnel when they are present, and Air to Ground Pilot Control Mode when the Air Traffic Control Tower is unmanned. Rural Electric supplied all control components for this project including the Air to Ground radio. The system was commissioned on site by a Rural Electric Engineer who provided training to Airport Operations and Maintenance Staff. Training was also performed for Air Traffic Control Staff.
