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.

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

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

* The CanopyFlasher (Nexus) and FuselageFlasher(s) (Fusion, DUO) never flash at the same time. They each alternate every pulse, meaning only 1 flasher is draining power at the same time, resulting in lower peak currents.

** These are preliminary calculated values.

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.
