Aircraft Lighting

Which type anti-collision light is considered to be mechanical?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Anti-collision lights are used in an aircraft to improve the visibility of the aircraft to others. The main purpose of the anti-collision lights is flight safety during the day and night hours.

Step 2

There are two types of anti-collision lights used in an aircraft:-

  1. Beacon:- These are the flashing lights mounted on the fuselage of the aircraft. These lights include LED bulbs mounted on a rotating assembly and slip rings are used to power the bulb. The rotating assembly is driven by a DC motor producing 80 to 90 flashes per second. They are used to identify...
