TOPIC: Searchlights?

Searchlights? 2 years 5 months ago #119

Hello

Just looking for anyone who can provide a bit feedback on the searchlights they are using. We currently use the Spectrolab SX16 but plan to upgrade in the near future. At HAI and Houston ALEA we looked at the 3 main brands; Spectrolab, Thommen and Trakka.

Can anyone provide any feedback regarding the Thommen (w/ IR filter), the Trakka, or the new Spectrolab Nightsun XP w/ IR LED's?

Any help is appreciated. We know the track record of Spectrolab... but Trakka and Thommen are unknowns to our unit.

While I don't have any experience with the Thommen we have operated SX16s for years and installed two Trakka units a couple years ago. I know there were some problems with the early units but we have had zero problems and the light does everything well. Couldn't be happier. Call me if yo need more 850-528-8431

We are in the process of moving from the SX-16 to the Thommen lights. We have purchased the lights and currently waiting on approval for the installation. We installed the Thommen light on our old aircraft (MD500E) and tested it for 2 weeks. Its is very fast 60 plus degrees per second as compared to 18 on the SX-16. Our pilots liked the brightness of the light over the Trakka beam. Tulsa PD has been the test bed for the Thommen light and their pilots like it. We will hopefully have one up and running by end of Oct.

Anyone using this latest IRLED Nightsun XP offering from Spectrolab ? The capability difference between it and a competitor look significant.
