AIRBUS A330 MODIFICATIONS (402)

Underwater Locator Device - ULD - Fokker Services

Events related to aircraft missing over oceanic areas have led to several new requirements, amongst which is the introduction of a long-range Underwater Locator Device (ULD).

The ULD low frequency (8.8kHz) technology is used to increase the range at which aircraft submerged wreckage can be located.

It will be mounted on the aircraft structure free of sound absorbent materials and not in wing sections or empennage. The installation is in accordance with ARINC specification 667, which describes the removal, installation and maintenance aspects of an ULD installation.

Note that the ULD is not to be confused with the Underwater Locator Beacons (ULB) as installed on the CVR and FDRs. The ULD is complementary to the ULB and is mounted to the aircraft structure.

ICAO states that by January 1st 2018 aircrafts flying long range over water with a MTOW>27.000 kg must be equipped with an ULD. Long range over water is determined by the exceedance of the distance from a suitable emergency landing spot. The distance corresponds to 120 min at cruise speed or 400NM whichever is the lesser.

EASA states that by January 1st 2019 Passenger aircraft flying long range over water with a MTOW>27.000 kg and cargo aircraft with MTOW > 45.500kg must be equipped with an ULD. Long range over water is determined by a distance >180 NM from shore.

Other authorities have accepted similar rules.

LED Sealed Beam Replacement Lamps for Part 25 aircraft

LED Sealed Beam Replacement Lamps from Talon

Get Light-Years ahead of your competition!

Talon Aerospace sealed beam replacement lamps are designed to allow for plug and play replacement of the existing sealed beam lamps fitted on an aircraft. Talon has 3 sizes available, with replacements for the Par 64 landing, Par 46 taxi and Par 36 logo, runway turn-off, engine and wing scan applications. The existing sealed beam lamps have a design life span between 25 and 300 hours while the Talon LED replacements are designed for 20,000 in service hours.

Light output is comparable to OEM lamps and the Par 64 landing light and Par 46 taxi light are designed to meet Mil Spec standard MIL-L-6503H. The LED replacements work with the existing transformers on the aircraft and are designed to minimize the overall LRU count within an operator inventory. The LED replacement lamps are designed with cool white LEDs to maximize light output but the Par 36 logo is also made available in warm white. Par 36 LED replacement lamps operate on both 13V and 26V AC, while the Par 46 and 64 operate on 26 VAC. All lamps can also operate on 28VDC, allowing for rotorcraft applications.

Talon LED sealed beam are designed at comparable weight to existing sealed beam lamps of equal size, allowing them to be used in existing fixtures. The current draw for the LED lamp is significantly lower compared to the existing units. Landing light Q4559X draws 650W while Talon LED replacement TAE0728-1 draws only 104W.

The LED replacement lamps are fully repairable and operator can replace individual components like the LED board, power supply and lens in case of failures, reducing cost of ownership.

LED Logo Light to replace Halogen based logo lights

Talon Aerospace LED logo light Assemblies to replace Halogen  replacement.

Do you recognize the following problems with your existing logo lights?

  • Halogen bulbs are replaced frequently
  • Lights are installed in difficult to reach areas and requires use of cherrypicker or lift
  • Lens sealant does not have sufficient time to dry, leading to moisture ingress within horizontal stabilizer
  • Transformer requires frequent replacement
  • Incandescent bulb color temperature changes appearance of corporate logo

Get Light-Years ahead of your competition!

Talon Aerospace LED logo light assemblies are designed to allow for plug and play replacement for the existing HLX64621 halogen bulb based logo lights. Talon uses a rack to replace the OEM logo light housing. The LED module and transformer assembly are mounted to the rack. The OEM aircraft connector is mounted on the transformer assembly, making the LED logo light assembly plug and play.

The lens, lens gasket and hardware can be retained from the OEM unit, but Talon does make replacement lenses available for most applications. The Talon logo light assemblies operate on 115VAC 400Hz aircraft power. A transformer within the assembly steps the voltage down to 14V to power the LED module. All internal connectors are circular mil-spec connectors.

 Approved Model List:

  • Airbus A320
  • Airbus A330
  • Airbus A340
  • Boeing B737NG
  • Boeing 757
  • Boeing 777
