Flasher & Incandescent Beacon Alarm Relay
The FB120A and FB230A are used to monitor the
operation of one two-lamp incandescent beacon
and one beacon flasher (or auxiliary module).
The flasher and lamps are monitored by sensing
the flow of current in the circuit. If the lamp(s) or
the flasher fail to operate properly, a solid-state
output and an isolated SPDT relay energize. When
connected to a site monitoring system, this unit
provides the remote beacon monitoring protection
required by the FAA/FCC. On a multiple beacon
structure, one unit is required for each two-lamp
incandescent beacon (one unit per beacon for
LED beacons) .
For more information see:
Appendix B, page 167, Figure 32 for dimensional drawing.

Operation
If one lamp in an incandescent beacon fails, the relay
and solid-state lamp failure outputs energize after 10s.
If the flasher fails in the ON or OFF condition, the relay
and the solid-state flasher failure output energizes after
6s. If both failures occur, all three outputs energize after
their trip delays.
Note: If both incandescent lamps fail, all three outputs will
energize. The relay and solid-state flasher failure output
energizes after 6s, and the solid-state lamp failure output
energizes after 10s.

Obstruction Lamp Alarm Relay
SCR490D
The SCR490D Series is used to provide remote
monitoring of steady burning incandescent marker
and obstruction lighting. Four onboard switches
allow operator programming for lighting systems
with two through nine lamps on a single AC
circuit. The SCR490D uses a toroidal sensor and
electronic circuitry to sense the failure of one or
more lamps .
For more information see:
Appendix B, page 167, Figure 32 for dimensional drawing.
Appendix C, page 171, Figure 32 for connection diagram.
Operation
When a lamp fails, the SCR490D senses a decrease in
current flow. Then, after a fixed time delay, it transfers
to its alarm mode. In alarm mode, the LED indicator, the
output relay (SPDT isolated contacts), and a non-isolated
solid-state output are energized. Replacement of the failed
lamps resets the alarm outputs and the LED indicator.
To prevent false alarm signals, power must be applied to
the SCR490D at the same time that lamps are energized.
Features:
• Senses failed obstruction lamps
• 2 - 9 steadily burning lamps can be
monitored
• Toroidal current sensing
• Isolated, 10A, SPDT alarm output contacts
• 1A, solid-state line voltage alarm output
• 6 second trip delay prevents nuisance
alarms

Universal Lamp Alarm Relay
SCR Series
The SCR series is a universal lamp alarm relay
designed to sense the failure of flashing or steady
incandescent beacon lamps or steady side lights.
The toroidal current sensor provides isolation and
allows monitoring of more than one line at a time.
The SCR Series energizes when one or more lamps
fail. It will monitor the operation of one to four
side lights and up to four beacon lamps.
For more information see:
Appendix B, page 167, Figure 32 for dimensional drawing.
Appendix C, page 171, Figure 33 for connection diagram.
Operation
When a lamp fails, the SCR Series senses a decrease in
current flow. After a fixed time delay, the LED glows
and the two alarm outputs energize. The outputs and the
LED are reset when the failed lamps are replaced and the
current returns to the nominal setting, or when the input
voltage is removed. The SCR will sense an open flasher,
it will not sense a continuously ON flasher (see FB Series).

Universal Lamp Alarm Relay
FB9L
The FB series is a universal lamp alarm relay
designed to sense the failure of flashing LED
beacon lamps. It will monitor the operation of
one to eight beacons connected to a single flasher
and/or auxiliary modules and the operation of
the flasher. The FB Series output relay energizes
when one or more lamps fail. All monitored lamps
must be the same wattage and voltage. The 0.5A
solid-state output energizes when a flasher failure
is sensed .
For more information see:
Appendix B, page 167, Figure 32 for dimensional drawing.
Appendix C, page 171, Figure 31 for connection diagram.
Features:
• Senses failed flashing beacon lamps
• Switch selectable number of beacons
• Senses flasher failure
• Isolated, 10A, SPDT alarm output contacts
• 10A, NO line voltage alarm output
• 0.5A, solid-state flasher failure output “F”
• Self calibrating; no fine adjustment required

Operation
When a LED beacon lamp fails, the FB senses a decrease in current flow. After a 10s lamp failure trip delay, the
isolated SPDT (4-5-6) and non-isolated SPNO (3-1) relay contacts energize. These contacts are used to indicate a
Available Models:
beacon failure has occurred. The “L” onboard LED indicator flashes green during the trip delay and glows red
after the output relay energizes. Connected to a site monitoring system, it provides remote beacon monitoring
FB9L
required by FAA-AC No: 150/5345-43E.
The FB also monitors the operation of the flasher. If the flasher remains in the ON or OFF condition for more than
6s the solid-state output energizes and the “F“ flasher failure, onboard LED glows red. This output is normally
used to energize an external flasher bypass relay. The contacts of the bypass relay are used to route voltage around
the failed flasher and to indicate an alarm condition.
Note: In a single flasher, single beacon system, if the beacon lamp fails, zero current flow is detected. This will
cause the flasher failure output to energize after 6s and then the beacon failure outputs after 10s. This is normal
operation and can be expected anytime zero current is flowing through the monitored conductor.
Calibration
The alarm relays must be calibrated after initial installation and each time the LED lamps are replaced. In order to calibrate or re-calibrate the alarm relay, the internal memory
must be cleared .
Clearing Memory:
Remove input voltage, transfer the calibration switch to the off position, re-apply input voltage. The LED will flash Red to indicate the memory is clear and the relay is ready
for calibration.
Calibration:
1) Perform visual inspection of the structure’s lighting to assure all lamps and flashers are operating properly.
2) Remove input voltage, and check to ensure the calibrate switch is in the OFF position. Adjust the lamp selector switches for the correct number of similar (see note a) lamps
to be monitored .
3) Reapply input voltage, the LED should flash Red. After confirming the LED is flashing Red and the lamp selector switches are properly adjusted, transfer the calibrate switch
from OFF to ON. The LED will alternately flash Red & Green. Within 30 seconds the LED will glow Green indicating input power is applied and the unit is calibrated. Leave the
calibrate switch in the ON position. Reapplying input voltage when this switch is in the ON position does not affect the calibration settings.
Calibration Failed:
4) If the relay is unable to establish trip points for the setup conditions within 60 seconds, the LED will double blink Red. Remove input voltage and repeat steps 2 and 3.
Notes:
a. Monitoring a mixture of LED beacons and LED obstruction lamps is not possible with the SCR9L.
b. This alarm relay is not designed to monitor incandescent lamps.
c. This alarm relay must be recalibrated each time an LED lamp is replaced.
d. Due to LED lamp aging, recalibration every 12 months is recommended.
e. Applying input voltage when the calibrate switch is in the OFF position, erases the previous calibration settings. The LED will flash Red. The output relays are OFF and the
unit will not sense lamp failures.
f. Only one (1) temperature compensated LED Beacon can be monitored with this product. A combination of temperature compensated and standard LED Beacons cannot be
monitored .

Universal Lamp Alarm Relay
SCR9L
The SCR series is a universal lamp alarm relay
designed to sense the failure of flashing or steady
LED beacon lamps or obstruction lamps. The SCR
Series energizes when one or more lamps fail. It
will monitor the operation of one to eight beacon
or obstruction lamps . All monitored lamps must
be the same wattage and voltage When connected
to a site monitoring system, it provides the remote
lamp monitoring protection required by the FAAAC No: 150/5345-43E.
For more information see:
Appendix B, page 167, Figure 32 for dimensional drawing.
Appendix C, page 172, Figure 35 for connection diagram.
Features:
• Monitors LED lamps for failure
• Senses failed flashing or steady beacon or
obstruction lamps
• Switch selectable number of lamps
• Isolated, 10A, SPDT alarm output contacts
• 5A, NO line voltage alarm output
• Self calibrating; no fine adjustment required
• Meets FA-AC No: 150/5345-43E

SCR9L
Operation
When a lamp fails, the SCR Series senses a decrease in current flow. After a 10s trip delay, the onboard LED
glows and the two alarm outputs energize. The outputs and the LED are reset when the failed lamps are replaced
and the unit is recalibrated. The SCR will sense an open flasher, it will not sense a continuously ON flasher (see
FB Series). Removing input voltage de-energizes the output and the LED‘s. It does not change the calibration.
Calibration
The alarm relays must be calibrated after initial installation and each time the LED lamps are replaced. In order to calibrate or re-calibrate the alarm relay, the internal memory
must be cleared .
Clearing Memory:
Remove input voltage, transfer the calibration switch to the off position, re-apply input voltage. The LED will flash Red to indicate the memory is clear and the relay is ready
for calibration.
Calibration:
1) Perform visual inspection of the structure’s lighting to assure all lamps and flashers (if used) are operating properly.
2) Remove input voltage, and check to ensure the calibrate switch is in the OFF position. Adjust the lamp selector switches for the correct number of similar (see note a) lamps
to be monitored .
3) Reapply input voltage, the LED should flash Red. After confirming the LED is flashing Red and the lamp selector switches are properly adjusted, transfer the calibrate switch
from OFF to ON. The LED will alternately flash Red & Green. Within 30 seconds the LED will glow Green indicating input power is applied and the unit is calibrated. Leave the
calibrate switch in the ON position. Reapplying input voltage when this switch is in the ON position does not affect the calibration settings.
Calibration Failed:
4) If the relay is unable to establish trip points for the setup conditions within 60 seconds, the LED will double blink Red. Remove input voltage and repeat steps 2 and 3.
Notes:
a. Monitoring a mixture of LED beacons and LED obstruction lamps is not possible with the SCR9L.
b. This alarm relay is not designed to monitor incandescent lamps.
c. This alarm relay must be recalibrated each time an LED lamp is replaced.
d. Due to LED lamp aging, recalibration every 12 months is recommended.
e. Applying input voltage when the calibrate switch is in the OFF position, erases the previous calibration settings. The LED will flash Red. The output relays are OFF and the
unit will not sense lamp failures.
f. Only one temperature compensated LED Beacon can be monitored with this product. A combination of temperature compensated and standard LED Beacons cannot be
monitored .
