FEC Heliports Worldwide [Booth 9139] has received CE certification in Europe for its Remote Lighting Controller (RLC). FCC certification is imminent.
FEC's RLC is an all-new system of operator- or pilot-controlled helipad lighting systems and peripheral circuits, which not only work through the tried and tested VHF radio method, but now has added SMS control from any mobile device.
The RLC offers a flexible solution to the traditional Radio Pilot Controlled Lighting (PCL) solutions using the VHF radio control of helipad lighting and secondary circuits with its fully-digital design that integrates both traditional VHF with the addition of SMS control and monitoring.
The RLC can be used simply to control the helipad lighting, or there is now the option of automatic weather reporting (wind speed/direction, temperature, dew point and pressure) right from your helipad via SMS message to pilot. The meteorological sensors will provide richer monitoring and reporting both by helipad operators and other agencies.
The products will be demonstrated at FEC's booth.
