Part 1 Installation data
1.1 Product info
The MorpheusTM logo light is a high-powered LED light used in GA and transport category aircraft. It has been designed to be lightweight and with a low power draw to meet the highest requirements of all certified aircraft.
MorpheusTM 28 VDC
When installed on the aircraft, using the aircraft’s power (28 VDC), the light will be at its maximum intensity. The operating voltage range is 18 36 V DC.

Use the diagram below defining the wiring size depending on the current and the wire length. Make sure you add up the current for all connected lights. If the current is not given, then divide the power by the voltage.c
Morpheus™28 VD C should only be powered by 18-36 V DC.
Care and Cleaning of Lights
Aveo Engineering Aviation Lights are factory polished and delivered as ready to install on the aircraft.
If the lights need deeper cleaning, they should be polished with a quality lamb’s wool sheet that is suitable also for deeper polishing. Under no circumstances should any petroleum-based product be used to clean the lights.
Testing of the light before installation
All Aveo Aviation lights undergo rigorous testing prior to being released from our engineering manufacturing department. This testing involves burn-in time as well as another functional testing. No light is released for sale without undergoing this extensive operational testing.
When you receive the Morpheus™28VDC light and wish to test the function of the light prior to installation on your aircraft, please note the following:
- Please review the written information that is enclosed in the packaging. Warranty information, as well as a cautionary note about power supply removal, is enclosed with each package.
- Remove the light from the package. Note that there are three wires:
3. Testing of the function of the light can be done with a regular 18-36 V DC power supply (not a battery charger). Connect the black wire to the ground (negative) leads of a power supply, and then connect the red wire to the positive (+) leads on the power supply. The logo light should start lighting. When installed on the aircraft, using the aircraft’s power (28 V DC), the light will be at its maximum intensity. After testing, the light can be installed on the aircraft.
- Under no circumstances should any power supply other than an 18-36 V DC be used to test the light. Do not use Battery chargers, battery backup power devices, or other bench avionics testing methods to test the aviation light. The light is functional between 18 and 36 Volts. The use of a battery charger or other power unit to test the light will void the warranty and may damage the light.
If you have any questions about the installation of the lights, please refer to our website: www.aveoengineering.com
Notes on Installation
Spread the tightening forces evenly around the mounting hole. Stainless steel screw is recommended. The length depends upon the placement location of the aircraft.
Continued Airworthiness Information
Each Morpheus series light features a Negative Temperature Coefficient (NTC) circuit that limits internal temperatures by attenuating the operating current (with a corresponding reduction of brightness) when internal temperatures reach a certain threshold. This proprietary circuitry serves to protect the light itself, and associated aircraft wiring, against a thermal runaway condition.
Periodic Inspection Procedure
The Morpheus light is maintenance-free. Periodical checks that the light is functioning are to be done as required by the aircraft documentation. The light only contains one LED so the light is either fully operative or not. The problem of loss in intensity by partially failing LED is therefore not applicable.
RoHS Compliance Statement
This statement clarifies Aveo Engineering’s compliance with European Union Directive 2015/863/EU on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (“RoHS”) that took effect on June 4, 2015.
