AeroLEDs Offers Upgraded Landing/Taxi/Recognition Light


AeroLEDs has introduced an upgraded version of its AeroSun for use in Experimental Aircraft and Light Sport Aircraft. It is designed for wing mounting in aluminum and composite aircraft and has built-in wig-wag and pulsing modes in addition to its standard steady beam.

Each AeroSun uses one-fourth the power of an equivalent 100-watt halogen bulb while producing an equal amount of light, the company says. The LED has a life of 50,000 hours, meaning it can be on at all times and will not have to be replaced.

AeroSuns are completely sealed and will operate in temperatures ranging from -55° C to +70° C. They are 2.25 inches high, 5 inches wide, 1.5 inches deep and weigh 8 ounces.

The upgrade from the previous model includes an increase from eight to 12 LEDs within the same size mount, which provides a 50% increase in the amount of light emitted, according to the company. The new units feature four bezel mount positions in addition to two side-mounting ports.

The AeroSun is protected against overheating with a built-in protection circuit. It is also sheltered against lightning, voltage spikes, reverse voltage and under-voltage conditions. The price is $325.
