Improved Noise Susceptibility
Incoming command signals must follow each other by less than one second. After receipt of last signal, signal gate will close reducing the possibility of false triggering from random radio transmissions on the frequency.
Power Failure Recovery
After a temporary power failure, system operation will recover to the last mode of operation eliminating the need for a pilot to re-command the desired operating mode.
Selectable Operating Time
The airport operator may select various operating times from 15 minutes (standard setting), 30 minutes, 45 minutes or 1 hour. This setting may be made via switches on the Timer Card.
During troubleshooting or system checkout operations, a ‘Timeout’ switch on the chassis may be used to terminate the clock setting, rather than wait for the commanded time to run.
By tuning the aircraft VHF transmitter to the assigned frequency, a pilot may activate the connected airport lighting system by keying his mike button.
These keying operations must occur within one second of each other. Seven ‘clicks’ will set the lights to the High or ‘bright’ setting. Five ‘clicks’ will command the medium brightness setting, and three ‘clicks’ will command the low or dim brightness setting.
The system will go from the bright mode to any lower setting without intermediate steps, and within one second of the final ‘click’.
Several features have been added to the RC-1T5A to improve Safety of Operations and to improve Maintainability.
Models RC-1T2A, RC-1T4A, and RC-1T5A Receiver Controllers are designed to allow maximum utilization of airport runway lighting systems during hours when the airport may be unattended.Runway or Approach lighting systems may be activated, controlled or dimmed remotely by using the radio controllers. This is accomplished by keying the microphone button of the aircraft VHF communication transmitter in the approaching aircraft. No special equipment is needed in the aircraft.
