I had one problem. On the install of this item. The bulb I was replacing was a filament type where the polarity was not significant. The first hookup, the LED bulb did not light up. I reversed the wiring and it lit up. So I marked the bulb, with a marker, with Pos and Neg for future replacements.
Very bright, and a much smaller power draw than the GE4509. Install was very easy in an AA-5. The fit is a little tight in the retaining ring with the silicone gasket, but a very light application of silicone lubricant allowed a tight fitment and seal in the retaining ring.
What a difference this Led light makes. Very happy with it if you donâ€™t have one you should get one.
Exactly as advertised. Bolted right in with no fuss. Much brighter than the 4509 it replaced with a fraction of the current consumption.
Very Bright. No radio noise. Great product.
Excellent light! We just installed it in my Cessna 185, together with the taxi light, and theyre super bright! Also compliments on your super speedy delivery!
Works well and is very bright. Easy install.
Excellent product. Dropped right in the my C172N
This Whelen LED 14V landing light appears to be extremely well built. It has a solid and reassuring presentation with electric diodes on the connectors that are not present on the replacement bulb. I am told that this product will draw less current and display a broader beam than the bulb it replaces. Like all LED bulbs, it displays a blue-white hue rather than the yellow-orange beam it replaces. I can not speak for the length of service but anticipate a vastly longer (as advertised) service life.
Part number 11-08294 is Whelen Part number PLED1L. Part number 11-12976 is Whelen Part number P36P1L.
Per Whelen: This is actually measured in candlepower. The Parmetheus Plus would have 60,000 candlepower.
This has a 5 year warranty that will cover all manufacture electronic defects.
The landing light will have a 10 degree spot light and the taxi light will have a 40 degree spreader optic.
This unit alone does NOT have a pulse mode option. An aftermarket pulse system would need to be installed on the aircraft to put the light into pulse mode.
Whelen does have an STC, but it is not included in the box. The STC can be viewed on the Whelen web site, www.whelen.com .
This is just a replacement lamp, that the aircraft owner should be able to replace with a log book entry, but we always recommend you consult with your A&P to verify there are no other requirements.
Yes, the GE4509 is a 14v Par 36 bulb. This is also a 14v Par 36 bulb and will be a direct replacement.
PER THE MFG. - Replaces GE 250 watt lamps. 1500+ lumens
As viewed from the rear of the light, the terminal on the left is ground and the right terminal is positive. The polarity is also shown on the part number label affixed to the light.
