AeroLEDs has developed a larger, more powerful light that can be used for landing, recognition and taxi purposes. It only consumes 70 watts maximum in power while producing 4000 lumens. (For comparison, the GE4553 draws 250 watts and develops 3750 lumens when new.)
The larger SunSpots are available in two models, the 46 HX and 46 LX. Both lights have screw terminals that can be connected in either polarity for steady on light, and the HX has three additional wires that support a built-in pulse mode that can be set up for individual pulsing or synchronized with other lights for wig-wag. The weight (11 ounces) and dimensions (5.6 inches in diameter by 1.7 inches in depth) of the SunSpot 46 are no greater than the legacy lights they replace. As with all AeroLEDs, SunSpots have a rated life of 50,000 hours and will withstand temperatures of -67° F (-55° C) to 158° F (70° C). Both versions of the SunSpot can operate on 14VDC or 28VDC systems.
The SunSpot 46 LX sells for $650, and the 46 HX is priced at $750. At this time, they can be installed in Experimental aircraft, special use aircraft and LSAs. A PMA for certified aircraft is expected this summer.
