LUXSOLAR Radio Receiver/Decoder for Heliports L854-LXS

A radio receiver/decoder is a device used by pilots to communicate by air to the ground (Type I).

FAA L854 is a device that enables pilots to switch on and control heliport lighting systems. This system is essential for landing areas unattended by ground personnel, making it easy and quick to control lights such as FATO, TLOF, floodlights, windsocks, heliport beacons.

LUXSOLAR, according to FAA AC 150/5345-49, has developed its L854-LXS radio received/decoder which through a series of microphone clicks allows pilots to switch ON and set the intensity of heliport lights.

The system is also designed for automatic shutdown after 15 minutes, this avoids wasting energy and helps reduce light pollution; other shutdown timing settings available.
