|ORION 360 Beacons are the 4th Generation LED beacons for fixed wing aircraft. These are designed to replace legacy 2.6" and 3.75" round beacons. ORION 360 beacons are lower profile than legacy product by 60%. Please see documents for more information on this product.|

I replaced the rotating beacon on my 1957 182 with this light. It was a real easy install and it is a much brighter light. Well worth the cost.
Extremely bright. Easy installation get rid of expensive cessna parts. Winner!
Perfect fit to replace an original beacon on a 1967 Citabria 7KCAB. Much brighter than the original with a fraction of the amperage draw.
Nice piece installed in 10 min. Works great no more motor or bulbs to worry about. Oh yes very bright !
This LED style flash beacon replaced an old flash tube style that utilized a power supply. The power supply was failing to produce sufficient power to operate the flash tube. The increase in visibility of the aircraft is greatly improved with the LED Orion 360 and the need for a power supply has been eliminated.
Very bright beacon for the small size, easy to install...
I really like this beacon which is extremely bright, and increases my hangar clearance since it is mounted on the top of the vertical stabilizer and is much lower profile than the one it replaced. I was really surprised by how easy the installation was.
This was a replacement fir a mid-80â€™s Whelen strobe that had finally failed. Installation was simple and straightforward, aside from accessing the fasteners inside the aircraft. The three threaded mounting holes on the light housing did not line up to the original light holes. Two were perfect, but the 3rd was off by 15 degrees. This meant drilling a new hole in the base to line up with the 3rd threaded hole on the light. While not necessarily a problem with this light, the Whelen to Whelen compatibility issue was surprising. Please note that this light does require a base in usable condition, as it slides inside an existing base and a new one is not provided. Once operating, the LEFs are daylight-visible and the entire unit looks great!
It is 100 candle power.
The larger size is 3.75" per the technical drawings. We have updated the web page to reflect the correct size.
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.
The Whelen Orion 360 series is FAA TSO approved for certified aircraft.
They all flash at the same time.
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.
The TSO should make it just a logbook entry/minor alteration.
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.
Per Whelen: You would need to measure the diameter of the current beacon. It is likely either 3.75 or 2.6".
