STROBON v2 Navigation Light
This product is compatible with the latest FAA and CAA anti-collision lights rules for drones. It can be seen from at least 3 miles at night.
STROBON Lights are the most powerful navigation lights on the model market for years.
Now, it's configurable for 5 different patterns!
- Strobe (Legendary Strobon v1 strobe effect. 3 fast flashes like xenon wing tip flashlights)
- Blink (Simulates belly or tail lights. Continuous ON/OFF)
- Heartbeat (standard beacon light pattern, ramp up/ramp down/off)
- Rotating Beacon (perfect simulation of rolling beacons. ramp up/flash/ramp down/off)
- Static (you can use it as landing headlights or static wing-tip lights)
It allows 2 different working modes;
RC Controlled Mode: Plug it on your RC receiver’s any channel for RC mode, then you can enable/disable it over the selected servo channel.
Each Strobon counts the servo signals. So, you can plug more than one Strobon into the same RC channel to synchronize them. (check the schematic below)
Standalone Mode: Power it directly from the battery (3.5-6v) it works on Standalone mode and works continuously.
Because of the human eye's limitations, Every colour has different visibility and energy transfer rate.
Also, every LED colour has different chemical compounds and efficiency.
According to our experience in years;
|WHITE:||The best visibility and efficiency.|
|YELLOW||Same as White but has better mist penetration.|
|RED||2th in the visibility, efficiency is the same as white but the best for the warning.|
|GREEN||3th in visibility and efficiency. Best for Standard RED/GREEN (Left/Right) navigation usage.|
|BLUE||4th invisibility and also efficiency. We are not suggesting this colour for warning or navigation but special usage.|
|IR 850nm||Visible for Night Vision Goggles and surveillance cameras with night mode.|
|IR 940nm||Visible for Night Vision Goggles only. Completely invisible to the naked human eye. Some cameras can see in the short-range.|
Bottom line: White and Red is the best option if you need long-range visible strobes. And you can use green to identify your flying platform direction. Blue is only for special applications.
- Supply Voltage: 3.5 - 6 volt
- Current Consumption per hour @5V
Strobe: 60mA (~1A when flashing)
Blink: 70mA (150ma ON)
Rolling Beacon: 170mA (~1A when flashing)
- Diameter: 21.5mm
- Height: 6mm
- Screw Holes: 1.5mm diameter & 18mm distance
- Weight: 1.50 gram without wires
- Wire Length: 30cm (only for "with wire" option)
We are strongly suggesting our specially designed polycarbonate lenses for this product.
All you need is a piece of wire or a tweezer to change the pattern.
Connect two small pads of the Strobon v2 board while it's working (it will not change the pattern when it's OFF)
It will stop working when you connect these pins. then jump to the next pattern when you release the connection.
