The first LED-based flashing red beacon for marking radio and television towers and other obstacles that pose hazards to aircraft
navigation, the new light is designed to meet the requirements of the
FAA, Transport Canada, and ICAO. Designed primarily as a replacement
unit for 300mm incandescent red flashing beacons in existing
installations, the L864 flashing red beacon mounts to standard bolt
patterns and requires no additional wiring, controllers, or monitors.
It uses high-flux LEDs and uses 90 percent less energy than standard
incandescent beacons that consume a minimum of 1240W. Its unique design
optimizes LED performance, resists shock and vibration, and provides
360-degree visibility, while minimizing unwanted ground-lighting
effect. The L864 flashing red beacon carries a limited five-year
A revitalized version of the Aural Exciter, the new Model 204, which replaces the older Model 104, features an Optical Big Bottom for
enhanced low-end response; two independent channels; new packaging with
a revamped front-panel layout; internal power supply; XLR and
¼-inch I/O connectors; plus updated circuitry for improved overall
sound quality and user flexibility. The Model 204 features a
new-Millennium front-panel design and operator controls, plus a custom
light-dependent resistor as the gain-control element. As a result,
dynamic range is increased by 10dB with increased flexibility. The
patented Big Bottom circuit dynamically shapes the bass response in the
20Hz to 120Hz range, increasing the perception of low frequencies
without boosting the maximum peak output.

Universal telephone interface
This single pack provides audio connections to cell phones, PBX phone systems, and plain analog phone lines. For use with cell phones,
simply plug ComPack into the 2.5mm headset jack of your wireless cell
phone. The phone will recognize ComPack as a headset, which will
disable the mic and speaker in the phone. For PBX systems, unplug the
handset from any analog or digital PBX phone and plug the coiled cord
into ComPack. With analog phones, plug ComPack into an RJ-11 jack, go
off-hook and dial, or answer an incoming call. ComPack also functions
as a simple telecom interface for a beltpack intercom system. This
allows users to connect the three-pin XLR to a beltpack intercom group
for a full duplex, always-on connection to any telephone network.
