This new self
contained 14 Volt beacon uses surface mounted LED (Light Emitting Diode)
technology and meets FAA requirements for anti-collision light systems in
both airplane and rotorcraft categories. This rugged little unit measures
1.7 inches in diameter, 3.5 inches tall and weighs 8.4 ounces. The average
current draw at 14 volts is 0.6 Amps with a peak input current of 1.2
Amps. It has a flash rate of 60 per minute and will not produce EMI or RFI
interference. The color is Aviation Red LEDs through a clear Polycarbonate
Fresnel lens. The manufactures projected life for their LEDs is up to 100K
hours. Mounting is accomplished by a #10-32 stainless steel stud that is in
the bottom center of the base.
Red LED 14 VDC Aircraft Beacon
is proud to introduce the latest addition to our LSA and
EXPERIMENTAL aircraft line of lights. Made in the USA,
we call it the LTR which stands for Landing-Taxi-Recognition.
The LTR consists of 9 extremely bright LEDs, focused
through special lenses. This results in a white beam of light that has
been measured with a light meter to be 2 1/2 times the brightness of a 55 watt
halogen lamp while drawing 1/3 the current and 1 1/2 that of an HID lamp
at about the same current. Powered by 12 to14 volts
DC it uses only 1.35 Amps of power. The LTR
dimensions are 3” Dia. X 1” deep and weighs less than 6 ounces.
Flashing one or two LTRs on & off can be accomplished with our
WIG-WAG circuit (see below). You
must see the LTR in operation to believe the light
output. Sold with a money back satisfaction guarantee.
VDC Landing-Taxi-Recognition Light
This 3” dia. by 1” deep sealed unit
is made of anodized aluminum with a polycarbonate face and resembles a
hockey puck. The rear
surface is flat and has two #10x32 studs 1” apart for mounting and
negative electrical connection, it also has the positive 12VDC wire
coming out of the back.
