  • Foul Light LED Mod

    Here is a mod I came up with for a foul light unit. I was able to remove the old indicator light bulbs and replace them with ultra bright white LEDs. This should work for about any foul light unit but the LED size and mounting will be unique for each type. I used 12V LEDs here but the foul light output was about 16.5V. Easy fix with a resistor. The voltage to the LEDs is now about 9.5V which is still plenty bright enough even though they aren't at full power.

      Pretty cool Matt. Now........if your house does a ""Moonlight"" program on weekend nights......find a way to disengage the foul system while leaving the lights on. Just to add an extra lighting effect??????? Might just throw a pretty neat lighting pattern onto the approach??????

          Just a thought, but you could possibly have used LED MR16 style lamps? The white LEDs will gradually reduce in intensity over time, so just be aware of that if you get intermittent trips later. Another thought is to use other colours of light, since the only reason the original was white was because it was a tungsten source. You could also use colours like red, orange, yellow, green or blue. For lifetime consistency the red, orange and yellow are the most stable.

          I'll guess that the current requirement of the boards you've fitted is about 160mA and with about 7V being dropped across the resistor it will be dissipating about a watt of power.

            Have you thought of selling them to an airport for landing lights. Man they look bright.
