Combination of Position Light, Tail Light and Anti Collision Light with FLARM-Interface
In the event of detecting an aircraft on a potential collision course, a connected PowerFLARM unit accelerates the flashing sequence of the EPTA-NG according to the FLARM alert level. This makes your aircraft more conspicuous and therefore helps to increase the safety in the airspace.
The new LED technology allows an incredibly brilliant red and green position lights with only 10% of the input power consumption compared with conventional lights.
The electronics are entirely encased in high optical plastic - which not only looks amazing, but it makes the EPTA absolutely insensitive to vibrations, water, dust and other environmental influences.
The EPTA-NG is provided with an internal overload protection. In case of over voltage the protector switches the EPTA-NG off. When the voltage drops or the EPTA is reset by disconnecting from the power supply the light is fully functional again. The overload protection will be activated by exceeding 17 V DC.
To make installation easy, the EPTA-NG wing tip lights are pre-wired. They are easy to mount with screws and coloured silicone. For a quick and easy conversion from xenon flashes to our EPTA lights there is a conversion adapter available.
All systems are integrated into the light units so there is no need for external controllers, power conditioners, or power supplies. This can provide a significant savings of weight, complexity, and cost.
With this interface (19.200 Baud, 8 Bit, No Parity, 1 Stop-Bit) a connected Power-FLARM unit can send the emergency levels 0 – 3 to the EPTA-NG and thus regulate the flash sequences of the lights. This increases the visibility of your aircraft in flight significantly and can help to prevent a collision.
Our developed "Intelligent Synchronization" schedules the light pulses so there is no overlap of the individual lighting flashes. This ingenious pulse shifting reduces the battery and generator requirements as there is only one light on at any given moment. It prevents battery and generator from becoming overloaded.
