Product Description

Intelligent Lighting Controller (ILC) is an electronic controller designed specifically to operate the lighting circuits used in homebuilt or experimental aircraft. ILC provides control of up to four (4) lighting circuits and each circuit can control up to 10 amps of load. ILC also includes three (3) dimming circuits for instrument and cockpit/cabin lights. Each dimming circuit is independently powered and controlled and can control incandescent or LED lighting up to 1 amp. ILC also provides a wig-wag function between two of the lighting circuits, such as landing and taxi lights for increased aircraft visibility. 

ILC operates from 10-30 volts DC.
