AeroLEDs has introduced an upgraded version of its AeroSun for use in Experimental Aircraft and LSAs. It is designed for wing mounting in aluminum and composite aircraft for landing, taxi and recognition purposes. It 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, according to officials with the Boise-based company. The LED has a life of 50,000 hours, meaning it can be on at all times and will never have to be replaced, officials add.
AeroSuns are completely sealed and will operate in temperatures ranging from -55C to +70C. They are 2.25” high, 5” wide, 1.5” 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 provide a 50% increase in the amount of light emitted. 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. AeroSuns sell for $325.
