The PWI LED Ice Light is designed to be much more efficient and effective as well as a benefit to overall safety. It features many improvements over incandescent bulbs including enhanced visibility as well as eliminating the radiant heat that comes with incandescent bulbs; less heat means less lens cracking and distortion over the life of the light.
“This is an LED that lasts much longer than the factory installed incandescent lights that burn out quickly,” said Robi Lorik, President and CEO of PWI. “The PWI Ice Light lasts 100,000 hours which means less time and money replacing bulbs.”
Replacing incandescent bulbs
PWI’s LED Ice Light is a direct drop-in replacement for several incandescent bulbs. Bulb #A7079B24 is compatible with Baron 55 and 58, King Air model 90 series, 100, 200 series, B200 series, 300, 300LW, B300, B300C and the 99. Part #MS25338-7079 is compatible in Cessna Centurion 210, P210, T210 and Conquest 441. Part #A7079B24 is compatible in Cessna Caravan 208 and 208B, Citation 550 Bravo, 560, 560XL and 650 CVII. Part #WA7079B24 is compatible in the Cessna 680 Pylon Flood Light.
“We all know the Ice Light is valuable to pilots, not just for use in icy weather situations, but also for the overall safety of the aircraft,” added Lorik. “This LED Ice Light provides added visibility and more peace of mind for pilots.”
LED lights are also being used for helipad lighting, which is proving to be an invaluable addition to air ambulances landing.
