New WFX Hybrid Launch Controller

Postby Voyager » Fri Dec 03, 2021 2:59 pm

I have recently acquired the WilsonFX hybrid launch control system. The system comprises hybrid versions of WilsonFX's LCU4W and PBU4W wireless launch control and pad units, respectively. The LCU4W-Hybrid unit has two ignition channels (CH1 and CH2) and two N2O GSE control lines for FILL and PURGE (CH3 and CH4). The LCU4W displays RF signal level, ignition channel continuity, local and remote battery levels. The PBU4W has two ignition pad outputs; FILL and PURGE outputs; momentary action buttons for each ignition output for at-pad continuity and fill/dump activation; and a battery level button.

As with all other WFX launch units, these units can be connected via a 3-core extension cable in the field if wireless connection is not required.

Bring on the 2022 launch calendar!
