Boise, ID – AeroLEDs has completed testing on their new Sunbeam landing/taxi/recognition light that features two intense Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). Featuring a 50,000 hour life, the Sunbeams are produced in a rectangular format to fit the Cirrus SR-22, a variety of LSAs and experimental aircraft.
A leader in LED technology, AeroLEDs has created a reliable light source that requires only 25 watts of power to produce over 100 watts or 60,000 candela which amounts to 1600+ lumens. Featuring wig-wag capability, the AeroLEDs on any aircraft can be seen in hazy daylight long before people can make out the airframe and because of their long life they can be active at all times. Individual lights have a built in pulsing capability that is nearly as effective as the wig-wagging.
Sunbeams can be installed by an IA, using a 337 form for certificated aircraft. The IA will file the paperwork. In most circumstances the light will outlast the life of the aircraft.
Like all AeroLEDs products, the Sunbeam is complete sealed and is very rugged. It is protected against overheating with a built-in protection circuit and is also secured against lightning, voltage spikes, reverse voltage and under voltage conditions. The Sunbeam is 2.8” high, 4.03” wide and 1.36” deep. The Sunbeam sells for $499. For further information visit www.AeroLEDs.com or call 208.850.3294.
