This kit is for one single combo light unit. If you're planning to use these in both wings, you will need two kits.
Designed as an oversized square board so that you can drill and/or trim it to fit your application, the circle shown around the spotlights is 100mm in diameter, showing that it will fit into place where a PAR36 globe was fitted in a leading edge light bay, for example.
Note the top LED is separately powered and adjustable for angle. We supply an adapter lens that can be used to transform the normal 8-degree beam into a 20-degree wide flood lens for taxiing. This lens can tilt downwards around 20 degrees, making it especially suited for tail dragger aircraft.
For 12 volt systems only, each genuine Cree XHP35 LED draws 1 amp of current, which results in:
- 1200 lumens of light from the single LED flood light.
- 3 amps and 3600 genuine lumens of nice, clear 8-degree beam of white light from three LEDs.
- You can, of course, wire all four LEDs together, making it a 4800-lumen tarmac melter!
- No radio or intercom noise. None. We promise!
This item requires assembly. Supplied as the light PCBs, heatsinks and collimator lenses. You need to spend 30 minutes or so to assemble the heatsinks and lenses to the circuit board, and rivet the nut plates (supplied) to the single LED board. No other mounting hardware is supplied. We leave that up to you!
It's common for our customers to use these lights with the Duckworks mounting brackets. This will work best with the round Duckworks kits; the rectangular Duckworks kit will require some cutting to fit.
Obviously, this is not a direct replacement for a PAR36 globe that is otherwise space constrained in a light fitting. However, this does give us the advantage of being able to use bigger heatsinks, which means we can deliver far more lumens! Yes, you can buy cheaper lights in this size, but none of them will have the light output these have. Please let us know if you think we've been outdone!
The board size is 130x120 mm and is made from easily shaped and drilled 1.6mm aluminum.
The heatsinks extend 70mm behind the board, and the collimator lenses are 27mm tall.
