Furst unites industrial automation principles and civil construction to provide a unique airfield control and installation service.
Airfield Electrical Control Design
The knowledge we bring stems from a background devoted to industrial monitoring and process control. For airfield operators, it means a lighting control system designed with the latest technology for control, safety, and reliability.
We’ve designed airfield lighting control systems for the department of defense, regional and private airfields, and international airports.
We can deliver:
Remote monitoring for AGL lighting systems
Ambient light level control for runway & taxiway lights and PAPI
Single stage intensity control for IWDI
Multistage intensity control for runway & taxiway lights, PAPI
Surge protection for high voltage MIT’s
AFRU/PALC monitoring and control
Redundant PLC systems
Electrical Control Cubicle Fabrication
A reliable lighting system is more than a smart design. It is fabricated to last. We fabricate our designs in-house. We make certain the right equipment is selected to meet technical specifications and MOS139 standards.
Our cubicles have:
25% spare capacity for future expansion and ease of breakdown resolution
Enclosure materials selected to withstand harsh environments
European components designed for more than 1 million accusations
Independent chambers to house each branch of control including MIT’s, control devices, distribution equipment, surge suppressor, user interfaces, and spare capacity
Airfield Electrical Lighting Installation
Our industrial A grade electricians see your project through from design, fabrication and installation. It means operators can expect the same industrial quality that our customers in pharmaceutical, hazardous manufacturing and hygienic food environments require. Our team have the right experience of highly complex technical specifications to ensure your engineering design is honored.
Airfield Civil Construction Installation
To safeguard the quality of your electrical lighting system – and guarantee a smooth construction program – we have an in-house civil team working hand-in-glove with our electrical team. The prerequisite to a high quality electrical installation is a strict adherence to civil specifications. Having an in-house civil team means that our people collaborate on site to deliver airport operators with the highest quality job. The cooperation also means we are more efficient to honour your construction program.Our civil team ensures:
Duct banks are correctly installed – the right MPa concrete and reinforced steel mesh is selected to ensure the integrity of the runway
Furst conducts inspection and Testing as part of our quality system. We conduct progressive system testing and commissioning before cubicle delivery and throughout the installation. A comprehensive commissioning program is also carried out at the completion of all work. This includes insulation tests, resistance and continuity tests and point to point tests. It also includes a CASA flyover for operational commissioning. For airfield upgrades we make sure the existing runway lighting circuits remain serviceable during installation.
