The Microsun is a very intense light source that uses three high powered LED’s to produce 1800+ lumens of light using 30 Watts of power. It is a small compact light that projects a lot of light and was designed for landing, taxi and recognition. The MicroSun can be installed in the leading edge, wingtip cutout, landing gear or in the cowl on an aircraft and has a built in “wig-wag” or “pulse” feature
Each MicroSun light uses less than half the power of an equivalent 55W halogen light while producing more 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 MicroSun 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 from a number of third-party suppliers. The narrow profile (1 1/4"x3") makes installation in tight places a snap.
Definitely brighter than the AeroLEDs Sunray light, but not quite bright enough for real night operations, in my opinion. Bright enough to work great as recognition lights, but would need a bit wider field lens to work as a taxi light.
I own two of them on my plane and I am very happy with. Very bright! Low current draw I consider this landing light as a safety device since other pilots told me that they saw the light before seeing the airplane itself
This unit, 11-07779, is both moisture and shock resistant and capable of being exposed.
Per AeroLeds, this unit does not come with a bracket and they do not offer one.
These are priced and sold each, one light.
