LEDs and Aircraft Applications
This document presents minimum criteria for the design and installation of LED assemblies in aircraft. The use of “shall” in this specification expresses provisions that are binding. Non-mandatory provisions use the term “should.”
LED technology is finding widespread use in aviation applications. Given the significant differences between LED light sources and traditional technologies, developing successful products with LEDs requires a different design approach. This document provides general guidance on using LEDs. It therefore can serve to provide a basis for design evaluation and help designers avoid common pitfalls.
