Copenhagen Airport controls landing light with straton (Denmark)

Copenhagen Airport trusts in straton for the control of its landing lights. In this application straton is embedded into the modern Brodersen RTU32 hardware devices. Redundant Ethernet with spontaneous straton binding protocol offers safety for critical applications.

Control of landing light in Copenhagen Airport with straton and Brodersen RTU32.

 

In connection with a major upgrade of the control system for the landing light Copenhagen Airport and DSE Airport Division has chosen RTU32 from Brodersen. The airport wanted to use their general IT network based on TCP-IP and Ethernet also for control of landing light.

 

One of the important factors for the choice of RTU32 was the possibility of getting a redundant and event driven communication between the control tower and the distributed units controlling landing light and other technical installations like generator sets. About 60 RTUs with more than 5000 I/Os are part of the project.

 

By using the two Ethernet ports on RTU32 and RTU32s unique stratonĀ® dual binding protocol you get a very safe and reliable communication channel. All commands are send in parallel in two separate networks and the receiving RTU listens to both. In this way it is secured that a delay or an interruption on one of the network segments will not influence the application. The RTU always reacts on the information first received.

 

The administration of the huge amount of signals is automated. The list of signals is transferred directly from one single Excel spreadsheet to the straton global binding editor which is a part of the straton programming tool used for RTU32. In this away a lot time is saved during configuration and testing of the installation and later on maintenance is simplified a lot.
