Kuntzleman Electronics new Triple Magnum strobe system driver box "will fire three strobe lights in a double flash pattern," the company says. The Triple Magnum system is available only in a 12-volt DC model.

Keeping a sharp eye out for other aircraft is the first part of the aviation safety adage, See and be seen. Having a functioning anticollision (strobe) light on your ultralight goes a long way toward fulfilling the second part of that adage.

When it comes to visibility, for pilots who believe "more is better," Kuntzleman Electronics is selling a strobe system that "will fire three strobe lights in a double flash pattern," the company says. "The tail, or third light flashes are synchronized to flash every time one of the wing tip strobes are flashing." The net effect is  "about 140 flashes per minute," Kuntzleman indicates. The Kuntzleman Triple Magnum strobe system is available only in a 12-volt DC model, and is sold either "as a complete three-light system or without the strobe lights [driver box and wiring only]," notes Kuntzleman Electronics president Dick Kuntzleman. The strobe system draws 3 1/2 amps of electrical power (peak) or less than 3 amps average, according to Kuntzleman. Driver box weight is 17.2 ounces, and measures 4 1/2 7 by 1 5/8 inches. Price for the Kuntzleman Triple Magnum strobe system (complete with three strobe lights and necessary wiring) is $375. Price for the Triple Magnum driver box alone is $230.
