XeVision™ HID lighting system installations though certified professional shops
Please contact the shop, which is closest to your location or a preferred FSDO. Competent maintenance technicians have experience with our XeVision HID system installations and 337 approval procedure. The list below shows the involved FAA FSDO's, shop and contact person, examples of installations with approved FAA 337 field approval documents.
Please see also list of selected approved FAA 337 by clicking here.
Below is an example of a typical 12 VDC installation. The existing aircraft (a/c) switch, CB and wiring may be used if rating is equal or greater than 10 A. We like to see 18 awg or 16 awg wires. New installations please follow diagram below.
Power input for the super thin XeStrike™ ballast, XV4D
There are two distinct XV4D ballast models: SPM: Single power mode, setup for one single output power, like 35 W or 50 W
DPM: Dual power mode allowing switching between the preset dual output power setting
The input power connector of the two models are wired differently. The input connector consists of three pins with + power, ground, and trigger. Please see the wiring diagrams below representing SPM and DPM model required wiring.
XV4D ballast models power input wiring
Wiring of SPM and DPM models are different. SPM standard on/off wiring with a two pin connector (or open trigger wire) is shown in the generic HID wiring diagram here. SPM remote on/off switching (SW) is done between + power (red) and control wire (white) DPM is remotely switched by SW is between trigger wire (white) and ground wire (black) to select 35 W or 50 W. on/off switching is done by a switch (and CB) in the + power (red) wire.

Installation example by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott (AZ)
We got a fleet approval with FAA form 337 for our certified aircraft from the Scottsdale, AZ FSDO.
The pictures show how we attached everything to an aluminum plate and used
existing mount holes in the nose bay of the aircraft and aircraft wiring.
We did have to use the noise suppressors for this installation. They were
done back in July and August 2003 and have given us excellent service with
NO defects or failures of any kind.
