Luma Technologies expanding product line


Cockpit panel and switch lighting is already available for the King Air line, and now Luma Technologies has plans to certify panel lights for the BeechJet 400A/XP platform, Cessna Citation 500/CJ family, older Falcons, and various rotary-winged programs as well. All Luma products are drop-in replaceable.

Luma Technologies introduced its LT-4500 line of integrated LED Caution Warning panels at this year’s NBAA Convention in Atlanta, Ga. Initial emphasis is on a two-panel suite specifically tailored for the King Air 200, 300/350, 350i, and 1900D aircraft.

One of the key benefits of the new panels over the aircraft's existing annunciators is the use of the latest light-emitting diode technology in lieu of incandescent lamps known for their low operational life and problematic cap/lampholder assemblies. Luma’s LT-4500 line offers noticeably improved lighting and visual appearance combined with the benefits of low-temperature operation and dramatically increased panel reliability.

The LT-4500 line includes six separate panel sizes, which are installed as a drop-in replaceable two-panel suite for the model in question. They also provide enhanced EMC/EMI protection.
