Looking to replace your MR-16 halogen landing lights?
The single LED spotlight from our "The Works" kit was designed with the same mounting holes as the globe holders that Van's supply in their halogen lighting kits.
They are a drop-in replacement for your Van's halogen lamps, with the following points to note:
- 1 amp current draw per spotlight versus 5+ amps for a halogen!
- 1200+ lumens per spotlight of nice clear 8 degree beam of white light, versus 5-600 lumens of yellow light.
- With a linear power supply design, there will be no radio or intercom noise. None. We promise!
Supplied un-assembled as the completed light PCB, heatsink, collimating lens, and mounting nutplates and rivets. Each light requires about 15 minutes of assembly time. (No soldering required!)
The typical 6-32UNC mounting screws and springs are optional. If you are replacing your Van's halogens you already have these!
The heatsinks extend 70mm behind the board, and the collimating lenses are 27mm tall. They are not specifically waterproof (or very aerodynamic!) so they would need to be mounted behind plexiglass in your DIY creations.
Add a diffuser disk to break the beam into a 20-degree flood.
** Flyleds made these to the same dimensions as Van's current halogen light fitting as found in OP-39 for the W715-1 wingtip, also used in the RV-10 lighting kit. The three aiming screws around your bulbs are just under 2" apart and are #6-32 size.
We are aware that there was an earlier version of Halogen light fitting (RV-6 vintage?) that used #8 adjusting screws and nutplates, and is larger in size overall so the screws are set wider apart as well. These lights won't 'drop in' here without you needing to make a new front plate, but the results will be well worth it!
