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.

Nexus MINI + CanopyFlasher: 10 – 18V DC.

PowerBox (PRO): 10 – 20V DC.

Fusion + FuselageFlasher – red LEDs: 11 – 20V DC.

Fusion + FuselageFlasher – white LEDs: 12 – 20V DC (we recommend powerful NMC batteries).

Power consumption
System situation & setup Standby current

(not flashing)

AUTO-mode, average consumption per hour with moderate traffic*. ON-mode,

per hour.

Nexus only 30mA ± 60 – 100mAh 130mAh
Nexus + Fusion 30mA ± 100 – 300mAh 405mAh
Nexus + Fusion DUO 30mA ± 150 – 450mAh 680mAh
Fusion FLARM 20mA ± 100 – 250mAh 285mAh
Fusion DUO FLARM 20mA ± 200 – 400mAh 560mAh
Fusion LITE N/A, OFF N/A – no AUTO mode for LITE 285mAh
Fusion DUO LITE N/A, OFF N/A – no AUTO mode for LITE 560mAh

*These are theoretical values only and strongly depend on actual traffic conditions; quantity and height/direction of traffic (when the FuselageFlasher does not need to be activated it drains no power). Moderate traffic implies flashing activations lasting several minutes, multiple (5 – 10) times per hour, with various Flarm warnings.

“Nexus” implies: one Nexus device and one CanopyFlasher.

“Fusion” implies: one Fusion device and one FuselageFlasher.

“DUO” implies: one Fusion DUO device and Two FuselageFlashers.

PowerBox (PRO) systems:

Due to the efficient technology and smart synchronised flash-sequencing we incorporated in PowerBox (PRO) and all AeroFlash products, power consumption is very reasonable and should not be an obstacle to installing AeroFLASH systems. Typical power consumption will result in an average power consumption of only 210-720mAh (milliamps per hour).
