AeroLEDs has completed testing on its 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 SR22, a variety of LSAs and experimental aircraft.
The light requires just 25 watts of power to produce over 100 watts or 60,000 candela, which amounts to 1,600+ lumens, according to company officials.
Featuring wig-wag capability, the AeroLEDs on any aircraft can be seen in hazy daylight long before people can make out the airframe. Because of their long life they can be active at all times, company officials add.
Sunbeams can be installed by an IA, using a 337 form for certificated aircraft. The IA will file the paperwork.
Like all AeroLEDs products, the Sunbeam is completey sealed and is protected against overheating with a built-in protection circuit and is also secured against lightning, voltage spikes, reverse voltage and under voltage conditions, company officials said. The Sunbeam sells for $499.
