CanopyFlasher LITE

 

 
 
A simple, cost-effective CanopyFlasher system. No Flarm interface. No Bluetooth.
One CanopyFlasher. One PowerBox.

 

Stand alone. Super simple. We call it LITE.

CanopyFlasher – canopy mounted, forward-facing flasher

Six extremely bright red CREE™ LEDs built into an elegant, low profile Space Grey (Nextel like) enclosure, mounted in the front of the canopy. CanopyFlasher is made from a high strength, UV resistant ABS based polymer. Out of sight for you, but not for others:

Extremely bright

The heart of the CanopyFlasher is the array of 6 extremely bright CREE LED’s emitting approximately 4000-4500 lumens, with powerful, oval lenses; two beams orientated vertically, and 4 beams orientated horizontally. This makes the Flasher well visible at distances of even up to 3500m, ±30 degrees above and below- and up to ±45 degrees left and right of the nose.

Safe to install

The CanopyFlasher system incorporated many safety features, like heat sinks, a temperature sensor to prevent overheat conditions and two status LED’s for indication of the operating mode and warnings.

Suitability

CanopyFlasher is suitable for almost every glider, with canopies opening vertically and sideways.

 

The CanopyFlasher LITE system comes together with PowerBox:

 

PowerBox

 

PowerBox is fully stand-alone. It powers the CanopyFlasher LEDs and provides flashing sequencing logic (3 flashes per 1,5 second). This PowerBox is not connectable to Flarm, does not have Bluetooth features, and is not connectable to a FuselageFlasher. It’s the most simple, cost-effective solution for those who do not need all the “luxury” features.

Temperature protection

 

PowerBox continuously monitors the temperature of the CanopyFlasher system. If an overheat situation is present, it automatically shuts down the system to prevent damage to the system and to your expensive canopy. After a short cooling the system will restart automatically if conditions permit. Don’t worry, the system generally doesn’t get very warm in flight, but in summer conditions on ground without air flow your glider is well protected.

Easy Connection

 

A neat removable screw-terminal system allows a quick connection of the power wires, and easy removal when needed. No need for soldering; everything is plug-and-fly.

Compact

 

PowerBox is super compact and lightweight: it measures 50 x 63 x 31mm (including mounting flanges) and weighs only 100 grams.

Power Consumption

 

Due to PowerBox’s smart technology, power consumption is very reasonable and should not be an obstacle to installing AeroFlash.

 

 

 

Red or white LEDs? Your choice…

Let’s explain the pros and cons:

Red:

+ Better visibility of a white glider against a grey/white background. This is the most dangerous situation. Red clearly stands out.

+ Red means danger.

– Slightly less brightness than white LEDs.

White:

+ Slightly better brightness compared to red LEDs.

+ Better visibility against a brown/green background.

– Reduced visibility of a white glider against a grey/white background (in clouds, haziness, snowy terrain, etc).

Conclusion:

We recommend RED. This gives the best result in the most dangerous situations, where it would be very difficult to be seen otherwise.

Canopy opening directions – different cable harnesses

Vertical opening – universal

Vertically opening canopies need an easy to attach, but most importantly, easy to DETACH connector. When jettisoning the canopy in case of an emergency, our connectors are designed to easily separate.

The AeroFLASH installation consists of commonly seen male and female DB9 (D SUB 9) type connectors for the data cables (status LEDs and temperature sensor), and for the power supply of the CanopyFlasher. It is sturdy, easy to attach, separate, and highly suited for the currents.
