Reading Light Pinouts Posted on November 10, 2016 by Ben 5 Comments Overhead Reading Light Pinouts Backlight B/C Floodlight D/E (Rheostat, 12v minimum) Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
Is 12V sufficient or do I need a higher voltage (24V) to illuminate the lamp bright?
Thanks and regards
Depends how bright you want the lamp to output. 12V maybe sufficient for you, and would rate the bulb for a longer life. However I believe they are originally rated for 24 V.
Cockpit reading and flood lighting bulbs are 28V, 11.5W. They get quite hot! No wonder there’s so much ventilation behind the panels.
Hello, Ben! Do you by any chance know what t the required voltage is for the backlight? Can I use the same 24v 1a adapter?
Hi Valentin, the backlight bulbs operate at 5V; https://soarbywire.com/lighting-and-colour-specifications/
