|Heliport System Controller Options
Use of a photocell is recommended for dusk-to-dawn control of operations of non-solar-powered systems. Photocell is supplied in a UL stabilized high-impact polypropylene housing which contains the cadmium sulfide light sensitive element. Surge protection is provided by a metal oxide varistor rated at 320 joule. It turns on at 1-3 foot candles, has a minimum rated life of 5,000 operations, and an operating temperature range of -40°F to 170°F. Measures 3.07" diameter by 2.15" high.
Programmable Timer Option
The programmable timer option is recommended for precise control of operating times. The programmable timer is a 12 hour, 8 event clock based timer. Multiple on/off times may be programmed into the timer. Each day can be programmed with its own unique timing pattern. An internal battery is capable of maintaining the clock and program memory for up to 3 months without external power.
Radio Control with Remote Antenna Option
The radio control option allows activation of lighting by pilots as they approach the heliport. Pilots may control the lighting with key clicks from their AM transceiver over the VHF aircraft frequency band. System features include: up to 5 mile operating range (depends on antenna height and a clear line of sight), user selected operating frequency (factory set between 118.0 and 137.0 MHz in 25 KHz increments), optional response settings (system may be set to respond to 3, 5, or 7 clicks), and adjustable activation duration (user programmable from 1 to 35 minutes in 1 minute intervals). The receiver with remote antenna option comes with an antenna, antenna mount, 30' RG58 cable, and surge suppressor.
With the dimming option, the lights can be dimmed at night to reduce glare. Three brightness levels can be selected.
Radio Controlled Dimming Option
The Dimming Radio Controller allows pilots to control light intensity by clicking their microphone on and off over the VHF aircraft frequency band. Pilots can reduce glare and adjust system brightness by selecting from low (3 clicks), medium (5 clicks) or high intensity (7 clicks) which provides 25%, 50%, or 100% output as they approach the heliport. System features include: up to 5 mile operating range (depending on antenna height and line of sight), user selected operating frequency (factory set between 118.0 and 137.0 MHz in 25 KHz increments) and adjustable activation duration (user programmable from 1 to 35 minutes in 1 minute intervals).
Output Power Options
The standard DC output model supplies up to 150 watts of power and is capable of controlling most small heliport lighting systems. For larger heliports, the power option may be added, extending the output power capability to 300 watts. The standard AC output model has a 20A breaker. The breaker size can be increased to 30A to accommodate larger loads.
||Solar Power Option
The solar power option equips the system to run with free, renewable energy from the sun. Unprecedented in the industry, this green feature is the ideal long-term investment. Ongoing savings afforded by utilizing solar energy are calculated over the lifetime of the installation. The maximum output power is 300 watts, which will drive up to 48 LED fixtures.
