  • Lightning Arrestor – Sheriff (Pat. Pending) , the first ever compact and affordable lightning stand-alone protector to shield the airfield lighting secondary circuit components against high voltages induced by lightning 
  • Two new adapter kits to facilitate easy and secure installation of primary circuits: With U29 adapter fitting primary cables and connectors in tight spaces becomes easy. EA29 adapter kit eases up connecting Efla transformers and primary connector kits to other connectors of another brand
  • EMC protector retrofit kit (KDCA.EMC1) will help when LED electronics might be causing interference with radio communications or other circuits:


EFLA CEO, MSc/Eng. Ilari Anttila comments: ”We at Efla are truly excited to be able to showcase so many new things here at Munich. Our R&D team has worked very hard to develop these products in close cooperation with our customers and partners to whom we are very thankful for their excellent input.

This time our team has exceeded themselves with these ingenious brand new products and services.”


In deed Efla is not only be showcasing the brand new products described above, but also launches:


  • Brand new mobile friendly web site site enabling

  • And last but not least Efla has developed a set of new methods to start Electronics encapsulation service, which will enable protecting sensitive electronics components and PCB boards in the hostile environment of airfields against extreme temperatures, water immersion, chemicals and nature forces.


Area Sales manager and head of Efla Marketing, BSC/Eng. Ms. Minna Kreivi, who is the driving force behind the new web site and e-Learn explains: ”Smartphones have become so popular and they enable to carry the installation instructions in your pocket. With our new mobile friendly web site it will be easy and quick to download the necessary instructions when and where you need them.
