Provision for an additional 8 custom patterns
Available as three or single color units, using high brightness LEDs and advanced micro-electronics
to provide a range of pre-programmed and user field-selectable operating modes with on-board
switches to enable different maximum light output levels to be set and to enable control which
quadrants of light are active
There may be situations where an operator requires that the beacon is only visible from certain
directions (for example, to avoid dazzling pilots or causing a distraction).
Usually this would require the operator to fit screening or similar but with the FEC Programmable
Location & Identification Beacon this is simply achieved by disabling the relevant array(s) by means of
simple switches on the main circuit board.
To disable a particular array simply slide the switch to ON (Disable) using the tip of a ball point pen or
similar tool. The relevant array(s) will remain permanently disabled in all programming modes until the
switch(es) are turned off again.
As shipped, all of the arrays are enabled
