Made in Germany.
The new Thiesen landing light, the Thiesen Electronic Landing Light 60 (ELL60), with its 60 mm diameter, and at 130 grams (including connecting cables) is much more compact than its forerunner model ELL80, but has a much greater luminous efficiency. The power input of the ELL60 is only 60 watts, with the light output equal to a 190 watt halogen lamp. Again, Thiesen’s state of the art molding techniques guaranties weather resistance and therefore it can be mounted virtually anywhere on your aircraft even in the wheel pants! Consider the Viking Nose Wheel Spacer and you can add a landing light to the side-wall of your spacer.
Do you want more innovation – do you see that hole in the middle of the light assembly? That’s a little ram-air duct that directs the relative airflow over the cooling heatsink pins at the rear of the unit. And that is how you get this much performance packed into such a tiny footprint.
And all Thiesen Electronics lights are built tough. All of the electronics are completely molded into the casing to guarantee absolute vibration and environmental protection. Sea water, rain water, pressure cleaners – no problems. Vibrations? Go for you life.
You can install these units anywhere on the aircraft you like – so long as they have relative air flow for cooling.
The integrated anti-collision lighting of the ELL60 is also prepared for the intelligent synchronization.
The unique feature of our landing light is the integrated anti-collision light (ACL). You can’t really do this well with halogen technology as the constant cycling of the lamp will drastically reduce it’s life. LED technology is not affected by rapid cycling. In Anti-Collision mode, the LEDs of the landing light can be controlled as an anti-collision light and is therefore integrated into our system of “intelligent synchronization”. Thus, the ELL acts both as a normal landing light as well as anti-collision light in flight direction (ie forward) and increases the visibility of the aircraft in flight significantly.
The ELL60 can be easily connected to a cable of minimum 1.5 mm² cross section and is prewired with a 0.5 mm² highly flexible cord. An instructions manual and the required shrink tubing are included in the package.
Thanks to its advanced construction the ELL60 is water and seawater resistant and, therefore, ideally suited for use in seaplanes. It has temperature controls (safety cut-out if it’s overheating) and is corrosion and UV resistant.
The integration of our well proven Intelligent Synchronization allows a chronological sequence of power consumption for the connected anti collision lights and prevents battery and generator from becoming overloaded. Basically, if you have your ELL60 switched into the strobe function then the electronics that are already incorporated into the wing-tip lights will synchronize the ELL60 with the wingtip strobes to make sure that only a single lamp is ever ‘on’ at once – greatly reducing any spikes to your electrical system. No other manufacturer includes this feature as standard. You do not need the optional ILC unit for this capability.
The ILC is only needed if you want the ‘wig-wag’ function.
Mounting-Instruction – ELL60 – Please note that I have included the correct mounting system with this order as standard. You just need to vent the hot air from the rear of the mount to atmosphere in such a way that there is a clear flow (like any other cooling duct you have for your engine).
