Patria LDG Light is a modern landing light solution for the NH90 helicopters. Designed to provide improved performance and maintainability to the original equipment manufacturer, the landing light is a single configuration solution with improved white light power, IR power, turn rate and power consumption.
Patria LDG Light can support modern day annunciator requirements such as LAND, IR on and Stow. The landing light also provides contactless Hall-type position sensors to eliminate exposed microswitches, and brushless motors increase reliability.
Patria's knowledge and competence has already been put to practice by providng Finland national maintenance capability for current legacy LDG Lights. Patria has been able to deliver a turnaround time of 70 days per light compared to over 300 days typically provided for the factory fitted landing light.
Patria LDG Light is a one-configuration solution as opposed to the two-configuration offered by the OEM, replacing all three landing lights and one search light. Due to the simple configuration, the installation, maintenance and replacement is merely a normal line maintenance task with a plug and play installation kit. The installation also requires no H/C system modification.
