The recommendations given to me were spot on. It is bright and the amp meter does not move at all

Looks good, easy install. Brighter and lower profile than original rotating beacon. Draws less power too. Whats not to like?

WHELEN OR36R2WL RED LED BEACON 28 VDC 3.75" LOWER

October 25, 2023

It goes without saying that WAT is very proud of this beacon. This unit replaced a traditional strobe beacon on a 73 Piper PA28 235 that was starting to go bad. After a bit of research, I decided on this unit. I am pleased with the brightness and lower power consumption. Not to mention, zero noise on the comm radio. installation was easy and the unit fit perfectly.

WHELEN OR36S1W RED/WHITE SPLIT LED BEACON 14 VDC 3.75" UPPER

Looks good works great. Very bright for daytime visibility for other aircraft and to avoid birds. I have noticed birds getting out of my way more after installing this beacon. If flying at night a piece of aluminum tape might be needed on the front side as it really lights up the baggage area in my C150. In my experience Whelen products do not produce radio noise when properly installed and there is no radio noise from this beacon either.

Q&A

Please note, Aircraft Spruce Canada's personnel are not certified aircraft mechanics and can only provide general support and ideas, which should not be relied upon or implemented in lieu of consulting an A&P or other qualified technician. Aircraft Spruce Canada assumes no responsibility or liability for any issue or problem which may arise from any repair, modification or other work done from this knowledge base. Any product eligibility information provided here is based on general application guides and we recommend always referring to your specific aircraft parts manual, the parts manufacturer or consulting with a qualified mechanic.

Q: What is the light output for the 2.6 in base 14 Volt red beacon - in lumens or candle power?

It is 100 candle power.

Q: What is the diameter of the larger base Whelen 360? Is it 3.75 or 3.67? The email ad says 3.67 while your online ordering says 3.75. My existing beacon is 3 5/8 or 3.67

The larger size is 3.75" per the technical drawings. We have updated the web page to reflect the correct size.

Q: I have a 1968 PA-32. Are these strobes self contained or do you need the Whelen strobe power supply that I currently have running the tail strobe. Also I have a Whelen self contained belly strobe (SA800EA?) that Id like to replace. Which models would work for the belly? What model would work for the tail?

They are self contained. As for the replacement we would need to know what is currently installed on the aircraft. SA800EA is an STC number that covers several lights.

Q: Is this a PMA part?

The Whelen Orion 360 series is FAA TSO approved for certified aircraft.

Q: Is this Whelen Orion 360 a rotating style LED or do they all flash at the same time?

They all flash at the same time.

Q: Will this beacon work on the top of the rudder of a C172N?

If the aircraft is 1967 through 1977 and has factory fin cap, then yes it will work. 1978 is the transition year from 12 to 28 volt, so you will need to verify voltage.

Q: Does the installation of the Orion 360 on a certified AC require a form 337, or does the FAA TSO allow it to be considered a minor alteration? PA28 161 181 etc. What does FAA TSO imply? 337 or simple logbook entry? I see no STC Documents for these lights.

The TSO should make it just a logbook entry/minor alteration.

Q: How often does this flash? I understand there is a synch cable to make other same beacons flash at the same time, but is there a way to guarantee that they flash at different intervals to aid visibility?

The flash rate of the 01-0772010-50 will be 45 +/- 4 flashes per minute. In regards to synchronization the LED beacon will flash at its own rate and will go in and out of phase with the remainder of the strobes as there is no means of syncing this product.

Q: Which Orion 360 beacon will work on my 1965 172F? My rotating beacon on the tail has died (motor)

Per Whelen: You would need to measure the diameter of the current beacon. It is likely either 3.75 or 2.6".

Q: what beacon replaces the grimes model 30-0437-100 belly strobe in a PA28-180?

14VDC Platform : OR36S1W Or 28 VDC Platform : OR36W2WL
