The AeroSun™ is a wing-mounted LED (Light Emitting Diode) landing light with a built-in wig wag mode in addition to its standard operation as a landing/taxi light. The AeroSun™, constructed of extruded aluminum, is a very intense light source that uses 12 high power LEDs to produce up to 1200+ lumens of light using just 24 Watts of power. The product is ideal for installations in aluminum aircraft or composite aircraft where some airflow within the wing cutout exists. Typical installations include aircraft such as RV8,9,10; Zenith, Kitfox and Sonex.
Each AeroSun™ light uses one fourth the power of an equivalent 100 Watt halogen light while producing as much usable light. The LED light sources last up to 50,000 hours of constant operation, so you will never have to replace this light once it has been installed. It will outlast both Halogen and HID lamps.
The unit is completely sealed and is very rugged. To date we have completed and passed formal DO-160E testing for chapter 21 RFI and conducted emissions to category H, which is the most stringent level required. Additional DO- 160E testing will be completed as we work towards approval for certified airplanes. Currently we are selling this product for installation on experimental category airplanes.
The AeroSun™ is protected against overheating with a built in protection circuit, is protected from lightning transients and ESD, voltage spikes, reverse voltage, and undervoltage conditions. Polycarbonate leading edge windows are commonly used with wing-mounted landing lights, and are typically available for most airplane types.
