AeroLEDs SunSpot 46 LED landing and taxi lights consume less power, output more lumens (total light output), and are not affected by vibrations compared to incandescent bulbs. These attributes make the SunSpot ideal for experimental, certified, commercial and Military aircraft. The SunSpot series outputs a wider beam that illuminates the color of an object due to the blue-green color temperature as opposed to “grayed” out images from the orange-red color temperature of an incandescent lamp. AeroLEDs offers several SunSpot 46 (PAR 46) drop in replacement options that are PMA and STC certified.
LX vs HX
The SunSpot 46 Series LX performs as a standard light with the constant “on” mode. The HX version includes an integrated Pulse or WigWag feature that helps significantly increase recognition in broad daylight as well as night operations to help avoid midair collisions. Additionally, while in the pulse or WigWag mode, the SunSpots draw half the current. AeroLEDs recommends that the pilot switch to Pulse or WigWag after takeoff and remain in this mode throughout each flight. The SunSpot series lights are mounted in the wingtips, leading-edge, cowling, or on the landing gear. If you have a PAR 46 ring mount, the SunSpot 46 series will fit on your aircraft!
