  • Illuminated Feedback:Carousel provides illuminated feedback showing which hook is staged for release.
  • Automatic Hook Advancement:Controller keeps track of which hooks have been released and automatically advances to arm the next hook.
  • Controller Override:Pilots can bypass the auto advance settings and drop loads out of sequence if needed, including drop-all functionality.
  • Easy to Configure:A DIP switch lets you enable or disable various custom features (such as drop-all functionality, select hook, etc.) without the need to flash new software.
  • Automatic Hook Detection:Controller senses the number of cargo hooks connected, ignoring any empty slots.
  • Designed for Harsh Environments:Controller is positively O-ring sealed with minimal potential leak points. A GORE-TEX® vent allows the system to breathe.
  • Dual Hoop Weldment:Carousel frame has been upgraded to a dual hoop weldment to provide greater hook protection.
  • 3-Wire Control:Lets you use your existing long line equipment, connections, and swivels with some minor aircraft rewiring to provide a continuous circuit to the carousel.
  • Easy Stowage:Flexible cables make it easy to store in your hangar until needed.
