Kuntzleman Triple Magnum Strobe System
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.
