AIRCRAFT LANDING LIGHTS / HALOGEN LANDING LIGHTS

Aircraft lamps are exposed to extreme climatic and vibration conditions, which can result in short life expectancy and frequent lamp change – outs. Amglo Kemlite addresses this problem head on due to its flexible manufacturing, which allows for off – line processes to be implemented that can greatly enhance product performance on aircraft. Over the past years Amglo’s exterior aircraft lamps have gained significant market acceptance as Amglo has updated many of the outdated incandescent designs to halogen technology. Amglo is heavily involved in the design of next generation landing light systems to use (filament – less) metal halide lamps that will increase reliability and safety in the years to come. All Amglo lamps are FAA – PMA approved and are shipped with 8130-3 tags. If you haven’t yet tried the Amglo brand, be sure to ask your current distributor of aircraft parts for Amglo’s improved Q4559X and Q4635 technology.

Amglo Q4559XX

AMGLO KEMLITE LABORATORIES, INC.
Subject name: Q4559X Aircraft LAMPS
Samples from Amglo and Competitor
Project type: Random Vibration Test
Report Date: June 2012

AMGLO VS. COMPETITOR
TEST REPORT

STI Vibration Table
Frequency Range: 15 – 2,000 Hz
G-Force (G): 2.7 RMS

Amglo’s Q4559X Aircraft Lamps are made to better withstand the intense mechanical shock and vibration that an aircraft landing lamp experiences during operation. This is achieved using Amglo’s special filament design technology and a tripod-mount of the inner quartz burner.

Test Methodology: Five Amglo-made and Five Competitor-made Q4559X’s were tested on Amglo’s STI vibration table for 3 minutes or until failure. PARs are mounted in Amglo’s custom-designed fixture where the filament is positioned in the Horizontal plane. All PARs are monitored for failure by measuring open and shorted circuits, broken, distorted, or shorted filaments, and broken or damaged supports. Each batch of Amglo’s Aircraft lamps are vibration-tested and monitored to ensure the highest quality lamp and longest operating flight hours are achieved by our customers.
