The AL-1 makes an excellent indicator light for displaying boost pump on, gear status, power on, flags, etc. Also, it can be used as a remote warning light for any E.I. instrument featuring an external warning line. The AL-1 is more attractive, operates on less power and is smaller than the old fashioned indicator lights.
The AL-1 has a service life of over 1000 times that of incandescent bulbs. Mounts in a 5/16" hole. Size: .4" diameter x 1" depth. Operates on a 12 or 24-volt system. Comes with 32" leads.
