Hoffman Paradigm Series LED Landing Lights: Drop-In Replacement for Quartz Halogen Lamps


Compatible with commercial, civil, law enforcement, aero-medical and military aircraft, Paradigm™ Series LED Landing Lights from Hoffman Performance Lighting are ruggedized, drop-in replacements for existing quartz halogen lamps. Hoffman’s PAR64 and PAR46 are fully qualified to RTCA DO160, MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-461, and other requirements for fixed-wing aircraft and rotorcraft.

Paradigm™ lights are rated for more than 50,000 hours and maintain the initial candela output over their entire service life. Innovative control electronics and LED technology eliminate the abbreviated service life and premature failure of incandescent lights from exposure to extreme temperatures, shock, vibration and weather.

Paradigm™ lights feature three independent LED light sources, providing triple redundant reliability. Higher color temperature light output and superior brightness improve visual acuity and aircraft visibility. Unlike filament-based lighting LEDs will not cause structural damage from thermal radiation. Paradigm™ lights consume less power than other LED lighting solutions by using parabolic reflection to form the beam pattern. Hoffman’s parabolic technology provides peak efficiency while minimizing losses due to heat and optical transmission losses compared to other LED solutions that use discrete optics and/or optical clusters.

Micronor Offers MRI-Compatible Absolute Rotary Encoder System

Newbury Park, Calif.-based Micronor has released an MRI-compatible fiber optic absolute rotary encoder system. The optical MR338 passive sensor provides precision absolute angular measurement from zero to 360 degrees with 13-bit (8192 count) resolution and 12-bit multi-turn tracking. A duplex multimode fiber optic link connects the passive MR338 Sensor to the active MR330 controller module installed outside the MRI area. This absolute encoder system is designed for use in functional-MRI research, MRI training phantoms, EMC test facilities and other challenging electromagnetic environments where EMF and RF transparency is required.
