Measurement Procedures for Strobe Anticollision Lights
This SAE Recommended Practice (ARP) provides the user with standardized guidelines for the measurement of effective intensity of strobe anticollision lights for aircraft in the laboratory, in maintenance facilities, and in the field. A common source of traceability for calibration of the measurement systems, compensation for known causes of variation in light output, and recommendations which minimize sources of errors and uncertainties are included in this document. Estimates of uncertainty and error sources for each class of measurement are discussed.
This document recommends the test methods and equipment necessary to perform photometric measurements used to determine the effective intensity of red and white strobe type anticollision lights for aircraft.
