AeroLEDs has announced its latest contribution to aviation lighting products. The new Pulsar was designed from a “clean sheet,” using advanced mechanical/electrical computer modeling and optical ray-tracing software to accurately predict the performance of the final product. “The approach was a no-compromise design that was intended to address all shortcomings of the existing line of competitive products and is intended to meet or exceed all of the FAA requirements for certification,” says company co-founder Nate Calvin. The product is currently in the certification process with approval expected by the first quarter of 2009.
AeroPulsar LED-based nav/strobe lighting products meet TSOs C30C and C96C. When installed per FAR Part 91.205§§ c-2, 3, Pulsar lights will exceed the requirements of traditional legacy technologies such as Xenon strobes and incandescent lighting, the company says.
According to AeroLEDs, Pulsar features include life expectancy that will match the life of the airframe, zero maintenance, low power consumption, a product manufactured with no environmentally harmful substances, elimination of RF noise, low weight (less than 12 ounces), low drag, direct retrofit and multi-voltage inputs (9 to 30 VDC).
The AeroPulsar price is $995 per pair. For more information, visit AeroLEDs.
