Microlux Radio Controller allows the pilot to control the helipad lighting system via VHF Radio Air Band. The L-854 radio receiver comes complete with dipole antenna, lightning arrestor and 6 meters (20 feet) of coaxial antenna cable. This field tunable radio allows pilots to activate helipad lighting with a series of 3 or 5 microphone clicks in a 5 second period. Once the system is activated, a 20 minute countdown begins after which the lights will automatically turn off; the length of the countdown can also be altered by the user from 15, 30 or 60 minutes.
