Heads Up Technologies of Carrollton, Texas, is providing upwash, downwash, aisle and toe-kick LED lighting as standard equipment in Cessna’s Citation X, XLS and Excel production aircraft. Work lights and accent lights in the galley make use of the same technology. The LED system was on display last year in the Citation XLS and Citation X aircraft on static display at the NBAA Convention. According to Heads Up Technologies, the 28-volt DC system reduces electrical noise associated with traditional lighting systems and is capable of dimming from zero to 100-percent brightness. The optical design incorporates color correction to achieve any desired color temperature, allowing for very natural lighting conditions.
