ELL80is - Electronic Landing Light - Intelligent Synchronization


To see and be seen

The use of the ELL80is – the Electronic Landing Light – facilitates a better perception for light sport, experimental and ultra-light aircraft even during day time. The unique feature of the LED based Landing Light is the integrated Anti-Collision Light (ACL). The ELL functions thus as a normal Landing Light as well as an Anti-Collision Light in the direction of the flight (i.e. towards the front). The aircraft is instantly visible during its flight.

The landing light ELL80is is the enhancement of our approved ELL80is and is ready for integration into our family of "Intelligent Synchronization".

By using new LEDs, the light output of the ELL80is is four times higher then the light output of its predecessor. Mounting and weight are simular to the predecessor, so a replacement will not cause any problems.

The ELL80is 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. It has a separate connector for the Landing Light and for the ACL. An instructions manual and the required shrink tubing are included in the package.

Thanks to its advanced construction the ELL is water and seawater resistant and, therefore, ideally suited for use in seaplanes. It has temperature controls and is corrosion and UV resistant.

Intelligent Synchronization

The integration of our well proven Intelligent Synchronization allowes a chronological sequence of power consumption for the connected anti collision lights and prevents battery and generator from becoming overloaded.
