The Downlink Control Panel gives the aircraft operator full control of any BMS digital microwave system. The DLC50 universally controls either the Heli-Coder III or the Heli-Coder 4. As a replacement for the HCP-50 Series, the DLC50 occupies the same 1.5” of vertical space and easily retrofits into existing Heli-Coder systems using a short accessory adapter cable (DLC-JMPR). Available with or without actuator control and NVIS compatible display. Currently releasing a new DLC50 version that will be NVIS luminance compliant with cockpit dimming circuit. Twenty presets and three definable “hot keys” make operation a breeze.

As the control center for BMS Heli-Coders, the DLC50 offers unprecedented flexibility. Its default mode is for normal operation, providing a limited, definable control set that simplifies day to day operations. The DLC50’s custom mode enables complete configuration and adjustment of transmit or relay (transmit/receive) downlink functions.

The usual controls are still there such as preset select*, channel select*, and transmit off/on. But now other useful controls such as encryption on/off/key change, receiver control, filter and external relay control are all immediately available. Channel and frequency plans can be quickly loaded through the front panel USB 2.0 port*.

DLC50-M All Weather Model: For BMS digital receive and transmit systems in harsh environments. Operates on 12 VDC for boat and wheeled vehicle installations. Typically programmed to control a Mobile-Viewer (MV4) diversity receiver but may be programmed to control most BMS digital receivers and transmitters. The splash resistant panel, bright OLED display, programmable soft keys, simple rotary control for all functions, USB port (on rear of chassis) for software upgrades and other programming. Connecting cable is ordered separately according to length and device to be controlled.

* – Functions are transmitter or receiver dependent.
