Material

Fusion & Nexus: Aluminium + 3D printed ABS based polymer.

CanopyFlasher: Aluminium PCB, heatsinks and 3D printed ABS based polymers.

FuselageFlasher: Aluminium PCB + UV-resistant super clear epoxy.

Number of LEDs

CanopyFlasher: 6 CREE LEDs, red or white.

FuselageFlasher: 16 CREE LEDs, red or white.

Luminous Flux

CanopyFlasher: ±3000 (red) – ±3400 (white).

FuselageFlasher: ±7500 (red) – ±8500 (white).

Operating modes

ON-mode: Always flashing – additional Flarm input enhances flashing sequence.

AUTO-mode: Only flashing when Flarm traffic is nearby (<3km, or causes a traffic warning).

Standby-mode: Only active on ground as a temperature protection logic.

Read more about the Flarm and AUTO-logic in the FAQ.

Flashing sequence

ON-mode: 2 flashes per second continuously.

Flarm traffic received (no alarm, <3km, AUTO-mode): 2 flashes per second.

Flarm warning level 1 (impact in 13 – 18 seconds): 2 flashes per second.

Flarm warning level 2 (impact in 9 – 12 seconds): 3 flashes per second.

Flarm warning level 3 (impact in 0 – 8 seconds): 4 flashes per second.

Voltage input

Nexus + CanopyFlasher: 10 – 20V DC.

Fusion + FuselageFlasher – red LEDs: 12 – 20V DC.

Fusion + FuselageFlasher – white LEDs: 13 – 20V DC (requires powerful NMC batteries).

Power consumption

Nexus + CanopyFlasher only: 40mA standby, ±300mA flashing (measurable 100 millisecond pulse).

Nexus + CanopyFlasher + Fusion + FuselageFlasher: 55mA standby, ±300 – 750mA* flashing (measurable 100 millisecond pulse).

Nexus + CanopyFlasher + 2x Fusion + 2x FuselageFlasher: 60mA standby, ±300 – 1500mA flashing (measurable 100 millisecond pulse).

Nexus + Fusion + FuselageFlasher only: 50mA standby, ±750mA flashing (measurable 100 millisecond pulse).

Nexus + 2x Fusion +2x FuselageFlasher: 55mA standby, ±1500mA flashing (measurable 100 millisecond pulse).

*The CanopyFlasher and FuselageFlasher never flash at the same time. They each alternate in each half-second, meaning only 1 flasher is draining power at the same time, resulting in lower peak currents.

Temperature protection

CanopyFlasher: yes, built in temperature sensor and heatsinks built-in.

Nexus: yes, temperature sensor built-in the LED driver.

FuselageFlasher: limited temperature protection with logic, airflow cooled.

Fusion: yes, temperature sensor built-in the LED drivers.

Environmental limitations

Operating temperatures: -30 – 60ºC.

Humidty: 0 – 95%. FuselageFlasher is waterproof. Please refer to the specific installation instructions in the manual more details.

Installation outlay

Nexus + CanopyFlasher: 45 – 120 minutes.

Fusion + FuselageFlasher: 45 – 90 minutes.

Flarm compatible
