SOTECC COLLISION WARNING SYSTEMS
The advantages at a glance
Red means danger
Red is quickly perceived by the human eye. Due to its high contrast red stands out compared to white gliders. After several flight tests the colour red was chosen for the CREE®-LEDs to fit the canopy flash. Even on sunny days with a bright sunshine the SOTECC canopy-flash is visible.
Protection against aircraft without flarm
Unfortunately there is still a high number of aircraft without any anti-collision devices. As the canopy flash is always flashing throughout the whole flight it gives you protection against aircraft without flarm. The device flashes at a battery saving frequency to guarantee it will keep going the whole flight. All this fully automatic, without a switch so no cause for distraction.
Canopy Plug Interface (for installation in sailplanes with side opening canopies)
With side opening canopies, it is of fundamental importance that in the event of an emergency release, it is not blocked by cables or other connections.
That is why SOTECC has invested a lot of time in the development of hood contact that combines functionality and safety with uncomplicated installation.
The package includes a template and easy to understand installation instructions with pictures.
