NEW 5050 WATERPROOF
FLEXI STRIP SURFACE MOUNT LIGHTING
AVAILABLE IN RED, GREEN COOL WHITE & YELLOW
SUPER BRIGHT AND THIN!

These are NOT standard LEDS mounted on a strip but surface mount components.


SMD 5050 can offer a light output over 3 times that of the 3528 strip and therefore the 5050 LED is well suited for lighting up areas that may be subject to high levels of ambient light. 5050 LED strip can also be used as a replacement for fluorescent tube in general task lighting and in light boxes. As a result, logically, they are more expensive, but for installations with high luminosity requirements they are preferred since their cost per lumen is generally lower.
Photo above shows strips mounted on new UAV DIY frame and can be powered by a 12v LiPo OR LITH Ion.


A full 5m strip 300 lights can be powered by 12v

Only 2mm thick! Brilliant lights as shown in photo above.






REFLECTORS



You will NOT find these in your local model shop.
These are made in two versions (for 3mm and 5mm lighting devices) and are of really well made chromed plastic.
These reflectors work very well with the 5mm and 3mm lighting devices as the lights are ALL wide angled.

They have a bowl max diameter of 12mm.
The total length of the reflector from front face to collar rear face is 8mm.
The bowl is a highly polished "chrome" plastic and enhances the fitted light quite effectively.
The front face has a lip to allow placement of a QUALITY lens cover.


LENS COVERS NOW AVAILABLE IN RED, GREEN, FROSTED WHITE for 3mm..5mm and 18mm reflectors


Available with or without cover
and when used,fits pefectly over the front lip of the reflector


40mm REFLECTOR Fits 10mm diameter Led.
A really large, intense light



18mm DIAMETER REFLECTORS

Other types available (look like torch reflectors) 24mm AND a 40mm available (the latter with high polish finish) (These will also accept 5mm type devices as a loose fit.)

It should be noted however, 24mm is a metal type - 24 and 40mm DO NOT FIT the SUPERLIGHT OR ULTRALIGHTS







SUPERLIGHTS-POWERLIGHTS and ULTRALIGHTS


WILL COME with connecting power leads already soldered to them as soldering wires to them is quite tricky..

They are outstanding sets of NAV LIGHTS showing TRUE COLOURS with superb, brilliant white landing lights.




3mm DIAMETER TYPES
A VERY INTENSE SET


These are HIGH intensity 3mm types. ( RED, GREEN WHITE)
The WHITE very suitable for models requiring engine cowling mounted
landing lights (Cessna or other types) - or, main/nose oleo lights or even wingtip white "strobes".

Reflectors for these 3mm lights are available (as shown above). .

The (RED, GREEN) navigation lights are ideal for fitting into helicopter stub wings on rear of fuselages (Agusta 109 etc.,)
4.8v to 6v

TAMING VOLTAGE FOR LIGHTING


Some of these lights make quite a demand of a battery pack.

4.8v is quite adequate but should be 1200 milliamps or more.
You CAN NOW OBTAIN AAA NiMH cells of 2500 milliamps which will be quite adequate for lighting.
YOU DO NOT NEED A HIGH VOLTAGE FOR LIGHTING as most devices use less than 4 volts

Voltages above the max voltage of a device without use of a resistor (or similar)
WILL result in destruction of the device.
Please state the voltage the lights will be operated from (4.8V TO 6V)

The resistor value / wattage is mathematically worked out. This allows the lighting devices to operate at maximum brilliancy and efficiency. it should not be changed for any other value or wattage.
YOU SHOULD USE CORRECT HEATSHRINK TUBING OVER ALL SOLDERED CONNECTIONS..NOT STICKY TAPE.
CORRECT HEATSHRINK WILL NOT WORK LOOSE IN WARM WEATHER.





NOTE: SUPERLIGHTS/HYPERLIGHTS/ULTRALIGHTS/POWERLIGHTS
If not controlled by a resistor when battery operated or a special pcb circuit if a regulated voltage is used, can run quite hot. These lighting devices now included the appropriate voltage/wattage resistor for cool operations FROM 4.8V TO 6v. You just connect them up to the device and power supply as per the leaflet/diagram that comes with the devices.


These are superb NAVIGATION and LANDING LIGHTS as hundeds of modellers in the UK and overseas have already found out.
