ERB - Electronic Rotating Beacon for Ultra-Light Aircraft


Due to continuous development of our Anti Collision Lights we now can offer an ACL in LED-Technology which allows a longer lifetime and less weight at same brilliancy compared to a conventional Xenon-Flash based ACL.

As a matter of course it is water and seawater resistant like all of our LED-Positionlights / ACLs. As well as the ACL, the ERB is cast in a high-optic and scratch-resistant plastic module. The entire control element is integrated into the ERB module where the ERB's dimensions determine the required space – therefore no „Blackbox” is needed.

Our ERB is worldwide the first ACL in LED-Technology which accords to the FAR23 regulations. Thus, the manufacturer of experimental aircraft have also a alternative to conventional Xenonen-Flash.

The light is prewired to allow easy connection to a 2-lead cable of minimum 1.5 mm² cross section. Flanges allow simple fixture. In addition, it can be affixed to the fuselage or rudders by means of a silicone adhesive. An instructions manual and the shrink tubing required for the assembly are included in the ERB package.
