ERB2 - Electronic Rotating Beacon for Ultra-Light Aircraft
ERB2 – Thiesen`s new development with Intelligent Synchronization and FLARM-Interface
Technology carries on - so we developed the new ERB2 for you. With LEDs of the newest generation we were able to boost the brightness by about 25% compared to the earlier version. Also we were able to reduce the power consumption giving an increase in overall efficiency of about 50%!
As a world`s first, we integrated a FLARM-Interface into an anti-collision light for powered aircraft in order to increase conspicuity and therefore safety. The input from the Power-FLARM increases the light pulses of the ERB2 and therefore raises awareness.
All Thiesen LED position lights / ACLs are water and seawater resistent. Since the electronic parts are completely integrated in the ERB2, no black box or other items are needed.
Our ERB2 complies with FAR23 regulations. Therefore, home builders now have a genuine alternative to Xenon-Flash lights.
The extremely bright, red rotating sequencing light flash has a beacon angle of 360° and is visible at 30° below and above the horizontal plane.
Like all our other ACLs, the ERB2 is completely sealed in high-grade optic plastic. As all electronic components are in the ERB, there is no additional location needed for ancillary components.
For easy connection, the ERB2 is already provided with a 1,5/0,25 mm² four-wire-cable. It can be installed on the fuselage or tail by its flange footing and some additional silicone.
A detailed installation instruction and heat-shrink are included.
As world`s first we integrated a FLARM-Interface in an anti-collision light for powered aircraft in order to increase conspicuity and safety. If a Power-FLARM unit (not supplied) is connected to the Power-FLARM its signal will increase the rate of light pulses and make the aircraft more visible.
The integration of our well proven Intelligent Synchronization allows sequencing of power consumption for the connected anti- collision lights and prevents the battery and generator from becoming overloaded.
