Sunbeam landing/taxi/recognition light that features two intense Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). Featuring a 50,000 hour life, the Sunbeams are produced in a rectangular format to fit the Cirrus SR-22, a variety of LSAs and experimental aircraft.
A leader in LED technology, AeroLEDs has created a reliable light source that requires only 25 watts of power to produce over 100 watts or 60,000 candela which amounts to 1600+ lumens. Featuring wig-wag capability, the AeroLEDs on any aircraft can be seen in hazy daylight long before people can make out the airframe and because of their long life they can be active at all times. Individual lights have a built in pulsing capability that is nearly as effective as the wig-wagging.
Sunbeams can be installed by an IA, using a 337 form for certificated aircraft. The IA will file the paperwork. In most circumstances the light will outlast the life of the aircraft.
Like all AeroLEDs products, the Sunbeam is complete sealed and is very rugged. It is protected against overheating with a built-in protection circuit and is also secured against lightning, voltage spikes, reverse voltage and under voltage conditions. The Sunbeam is 2.8” high, 4.03” wide and 1.36” deep
OMG! these things are a VAST improvement over the stock incandescent lights in our Diamond Aircraft. We are converting all of our aircraft over to these. The visibility is far superior to the old lights. Note: The new style lights are 6 LEDs instead of the 2 that are/were pictured. We compared them side by side and the difference was noticeable, a good bit brighter. The company (AEROLEDs) is super easy to work with and very friendly. It is rare, but if you have any problems with their products, they will not hesitate to send you out a replacement. I did ask them about putting a beam splitter on this unit, and it might happen that they make a taxi version soon. Fingers crossed! If you are on the fence on AEROLEDs, do it! You will not be disappointed.
Really disappointed in these especially for the cost. I installed two of them on my airplane and can barely see 20 yards ahead of me and with a really narrow beam.
Per the supplier: No. There is no mounting bracket available for this unit.
The manufacturer recommends that this be used as a landing light. However, it is a narrow beam, but since they are LEDs they have a wider range. This means that the light can be used as either a landing or taxi light.
Lights come with a 5 year warranty period from date of purchase.
3 conductor, 20 ga wire.
The harness consists of a male/female cpc connector and the length of wire selected (7,12,or 15 feet). The light without harness is simply the light with a 6 inche bare wire lead.
Per the manufacturer this unit puts out 80,000 candela and can be seen from 2 miles away.
This light has FAA certification. We cannot confirm EASA acceptability. Please contact your local flight administration for eligibility and legality.
