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.”
Rationale: 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.
