Conversion Adapter

Lasercutted adapter for quick and easy conversion from xenon flashes to Thiesen EPTA-LSA and EPL LED-lights.

Our customer Horst-J├╝rgen Schnatmeyer created a 2 mm aluminium plate adapter for an quick and easy conversion to Thiesen LED-lights. With this adapter the old xenon-flash mounting holes will be covered and at the same time the new ones for the Thiesen LED-lights provided.

This adapter is availabel as bare aluminium or with a white powder coating from

The Mounting Adapter

Here you can see the white powder coated version of the adapter. In the centre is the M4 inside thread drill hole for the EPTA-LSA i.e. EPL. Also to see are the three through hole counter sunk drillings to mount the adapter to the old screw holes in the wing tip.

After the dismantling visible opening in the wing-tip. These will be covered by the adapter. In order to prevent water from entering into the wing-tip we suggest to apply some good not shrinkable silicone onto the mountig area.

Mounting the Conversion Adapter

If possible mount the adapter with the original flash screws. Make sure the screwheads do not overtop the counter sunks of the adapter and shape protruding silicone at the edge.

To prevent water from entering the wing-tip and to fix the LED-light, silicone should be applied to the underside of the light as well. Remove protruded silicone or shape it at the seam.
