Part number is 7108000, it’s their latest strobe. It is missing the base that will adapt it to piper or Cessna so essentially it’s just the strobe assembly.
New they are $599, looking to get $200 for it.
I was told the adapter for piper or Cessna is around $125 but not sure.

There's no way this will run on 12v? (The few I've seen have an input range of 5-32v)

I would suspect it would as your right most led will have a range. I am afraid to test the theory!

I think Whelen has a voltage-specific driver on it, dang.

There is the 718000 series. There should be an other number after the 718000-?? This will actually indicate what beacon you have.
Or, you could call Whelen (860) 526-9504, ask for aviation service and give them the model & serial number to verify exactly.
