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.
