Quantec Sensors GmbH

Aircraft Detection Lighting Systems for wind turbines

What we do

Say good-night to light emissions

While wind turbines play an important role in driving the energy transition, the continuous blinking of obstruction lights is considered light pollution and has emerged as a significant concern for nearby residents. In response to this growing annoyance, the Aircraft Detection Lighting System (ADLS) offers a solution to mitigate unnecessary light emissions and to restore the natural darkness of the night sky.

Quantec Sensors leads the way in developing and implementing ADLS technology, having deployed numerous systems for on-demand activation of wind turbine obstruction lights. As a key player in Europe, we have established ourselves as the premier provider of ADLS services.

With a wealth of experience dating back to 2008, we collaborate closely with esteemed wind turbine manufacturers such as Vestas, Nordex, GE, Enercon, Siemens Gamesa, Vestas and others to ensure seamless integration of ADLS solutions.


The Quantec Sensors Aircraft Detection Lighting System (ADLS)

Reliable detection

Securing the identification of pertinent flight objects and reliably discerning them from entities such as bird flocks or high-altitude commercial aircraft within the detection range optimizes the duration of light-off periods.

Radar -based technology

Our Aircraft Detection Lighting Systems are built upon high-end radar systems sourced from top Scandinavian manufacturers. These systems ensure longevity, reliability, and optimal performance, delivering unparalleled quality and functionality.


The Quantec Sensors Light Control Unit (LCU) facilitates the management of obstruction lights in wind farms of any scale and even from mixed manufacturers, allowing for the maximization of light-off periods for each unnecessary lamp.

Once the Aircraft Detection Lighting System has been commissioned, Quantec Sensors provides detailed performance reports documenting the light-off times achieved.

In addition to comprehensive daily analyses, which show each individual activation of the lighting with the exact time, the standard reporting package also includes summarised analysis in weekly and annual views.

Our convenient online interface offers our customers real-time access to the functional data of the ADLS and thus optimised performance monitoring.
