This text below applies if you wish to buy the new database

The next free mandatory firmware update to all Flarm devices is scheduled for Spring 2015. Flarm units can be upgraded using Colibri cables, of which the Cable COL-AC-DC is very popular. Bespoke update (power/data) for Swiss Flarm can be purchased from LX avionics Ltd for £19.00 plus VAT (£22.80 incl VAT) but note that updates can be done by SD card instead.

LX Flarm "red box" - stand alone system

FLARM Red Box - click for a larger view.This unit was created for use in any glider and requires no interface with any other equipment; it is not in any way dependent on there being an existing LX product installed. Supplied complete it requires only a 12V, approx 50mA, power supply in order to function and the equipment does not require any panel space for installation. Unlike Swiss Flarm units, the LX version has all the electronics in a small separate box that can be installed remote from the Flarm external display. The latter is dual colour and can be mounted on the instrument coaming or surface mounted on the panel.

The system is supplied with a GPS antenna and a dipole antenna that can be positioned where required.

System offers the same as Swiss Flarm but in a different configuration. The LX voice module can be added and the GPS in the Flarm can be used to provide a feed to other instruments by use of the appropriate splitter. The logger (currently non-IGC) is an option.

LX Flarm Mini Box
Selected by RAF Air Cadets for fitment to its glider fleet

FLARM Mini Box - click for a larger view.A compact stand alone Flarm unit for coaming top installation

Overview
The unit has been designed as a compact and small Flarm compatible unit for mounting on the coaming above the instrument panel. There are no external parts to be connected or wired apart from the 12V power connector (6P telephone type) to the glider power supply. Flarm and navigation data can also be fed through the same connector; this makes it possible to connect secondary units, such as displays and PDAs, via suitable splitters. The version with an SD card interface also supports a flight recorder function and is an option. (Mini Box can also be supplied as IGC approved). The LEDs are dual colour (red and green) and offer precise information about nearby Flarm equipped gliders.

Features

  • Robust metal case
  • Very small; 53 x 29 x 83 mm
  • Dual colour LEDs
  • Capable of driving secondary Flarm displays, PDA and also LX Voice Module (via LX Flarm Splitter or Splitting Unit)
  • Three versions; one with SD card and flight recorder and one without and one with IGC approval
  • Dipole RF antenna as standard; other antenna types on request (add £10 plus VAT for stubby antenna as illustrated)
  • GPS antenna integral and fixed to the unit

PowerFlarm Core Pure

PowerFlarm CorePower Flarm Core Pure is a simpler version of the regular Power Flarm series (see Collision Warning Systems section) and is a Flarm only with no ADS-B or Transponder warning capability. It can be enabled to IGC and ENL standard by simple activation code (pay for addition). Supplied with all required antennas and cable. USB stick not included.

PowerFLARM® CORE is a rugged PowerFLARM® solution for fixed installation without ADS-B/Transponder receiver. It is installed "hidden" behind the instrument panel, or in the avionics compartment, and passes PowerFLARM® traffic information to third party display systems. Many specialized display solutions are available, additionally nearly all leading Moving-Map Systems are capable of displaying PowerFLARM® Data.

To obtain full collision warning it is essential that Core is used with a suitable Flarm display; using a Moving Map system alone will not achieve this.

PowerFLARM® Core can operate two independent FLARM® antennas (optional) and features amplified range, in contrast to normal FLARM®-systems, it features enhanced range and better coverage. So it has applications in fast aircraft and aircraft with metal fuselages.

The PURE-Version does not include an ADS-B/Transponder receiver.
