Sotecc ACL LED-canopy flasher
Sotecc Anti-collision LED-Canopy flasher for enhanced flight safety.
Besides the proven Flarm systems, you now have the option to be way better visible in the air.
And since we fly VFR, this might even be better as Flarm for flight safety (off course both is best).
With its six LEDs, the canopy flasher is the ideal combination of visibility and efficiency.
The inconspicuous, black design, makes it adapt to most modern glider cockpits.
The canopy flasher does not reflect in the canopy and does not restrict the field of view!
When purchased as a standalone, the canopy flasher will flash with a certain predetermined frequency (which cannot be changed) when power is supplied.
In modern glider cockpits there are now countless buttons, switches and displays. Our Sotecc canopy flashers can now work fully automatically in combination with the connectBOX.
We therefore highly recommend combining the canopy flasher with the Sotecc connectBOX.
When switching on the avionics of your glider, the canopy flasher is armed, but still not flashing and is waiting for your take-off.
Once gaining speed on your take-off roll, the canopy flasher starts flashing with a battery saving flash frequency.
If a potential collision threat is recognized (depending on several parameters, Flarm for example), the canopy flasher automatically switches into the alarm-mode, the flashes are getting more remarkable and more aggressive.
After landing and coming to a full stop, the canopy flasher automatically stops flashing and is then again ready and armed for the next flight.
All this without increased pilot workload and without any switch. It´s as simple as that.
Glider pilots are individualists, that's why the canopy flasher can be configured individually.
With the "Sotecc-Configurator" provided, depending on your preference the connectBOX settings can be easily adjusted, such as; the flashing frequency, the alarm threshold and the visibility of the LED's.
