LED replacement bulb for AeroFlash-style quartz halogen flashing beacon bulbs. This is a plug-and-play bulb swap with no modications to the wiring, aircraft or otherwise. Instantly decrease your beacon current draw from a staggering 9.6amps @ 12vdc to only 1.45amps with our high performance LED bulb. That is only 15% of the current draw compared to your original bulb while retaining the same illuminance and exceeding anti-collision requirements for color/angle/intensity at all angles. No longer will you waste valuabe battery capacity operating your beacon during pre-engine start procedures; Save that power for healthy engine starts and significantly increase battery life in the process.
This new design incorporates 24pcs high power SMD chips mounted on a massive anodized aluminum housing/heatsink which keeps the lamp cool to ensure it is the ultimate long-term replacement solution for your flashing beacon. The circuit also incorporates thermal regulation as a safety feature to protect in the event your flasher fails in the on position, the led will not sustain internal heat damage.
