SPECIFICATIONS:
Nominal Operational Voltage: .......................... 28 VDC
Input Current (with 7123403 Flasher):
LED Position Light: .......................................................... 0.25 Amps
LED Anti-Collision Light (Average): ................................. 0.53 Amps
LED Anti-Collision Light (Pulse@0.25 sec.):.................... 2.8 Amps

EQUIPMENT LIMITATIONS:
An approved forward position and anti-collision system consists of at
least two lightheads, one mounted on each wingtip mounted behind a
clear lens, and each connected to a model 71234( ) Flasher.
Certain types of installations may require additional testing.
CONTINUED AIRWORTHINESS:
The wingtip anti-collision light is designed with 24 LEDs. The position
light is designed with 6 LEDs. If any one fails, the unit must be
repaired or replaced. It is recommended that the Flasher, Model
71234( ), be changed at the same time. NOTE: To reduce eye strain,
use an optical filter (such as dark glasses or a blue covering dome)
during LED inspection.
Note: The anti-collision lights will automatically shut-off after 9-10
flashes if a failure is detected.
SHROUD REMOVAL PROCEDURE:
If justified by the Aircraft installation and additional FAA testing of
compliance to TSO-C30c and TSO-C96a the shroud may be
removed.
1. Remove and discard the two, #6 screws that are used to secure
the shroud. Carefully remove the shroud. CAUTION: Do not
touch the LED lens. This could soil and/or damage the LED and
effect the optical performance of the assembly.
INSTALLATION PROCEDURE:
The following information is to assist you in installing a Whelen anti-
collision light system.
1. The installation procedure described in the following text will be
confined to a single light installation, but is identical for multiple
light installations.
2. Connect the inputs according to the chart shown. Connections
to be in accordance with FAA approved methods.
3. Using appropriate, approved hardware, install light assembly
and insure that all leads are clear of any obstructions and ty-rap
as required. Secure light assembly, using vibration resistant
threaded fasteners.
4. Check all avionics systems for interference from this installation.
5. A flight check should be performed by a properly certified pilot.
6. Update aircraft records, complete Form 337 and obtain FAA
field approval for installation, if necessary.
MADE IN THE U.S.A.
