Seaton Engineering
We honestly could not find any dimmers that were comparable to the MaxDim  in terms of size, installation simplicity, lack of heat sinks, current capacities, external package mountings, etc. that were fully STC'd and PMA'd for a wide range of aircraft.  
Need to comply to Cessna  AD 93-24-15?
We now have the FAA AMOC allowing this installation.

The MaxDims are simply in a "league of their own".
But here is one comparison

wiring means that this function is accomplished with extra wiring and/or switches, diodes, or other parts.  MaxPulse is fully self-contained and has no need for external heat sinks, boxes or other mountings, extra switches, diodes, or other special parts.

* Device STC/AML - Does the device itself carry an STC and associated AML?
Be sure to check carefully on this front as some claims are incorrect, limited, or intentionally misleading. 

* Avtek Pulsar is STC'd.  Check the STC, PMA and AML for your aircraft.  To see the STC for the Pulsar Click here.

* Xevision has two different models to cover the voltage ranges shown. The power handling is 14V - 250W total and the 28V - 500W total. 

* All in Box - Are the parts required for a full install in the box?  Does the box contain all documentation required for your installation?  Use existing or obtain circuit breaker separately.
