Airfield Category: View All
Tower and Obstruction Categories: Low Intensity / Medium Intensity / High Intensity / Accessories


The Universal HORIZON Controller (UHC) combines the finest in digital circuitry with rugged construction to yield the industry’s most comprehensive obstruction lighting controller. The UHC is designed to operate a FAA Type A1, D1 or E1 lighting system by the push of a button. One-button calibration allows the user to order just one model to operate and monitor any configuration. The UHC is available in different input/output voltage configurations – AC/AC, DC/DC, or AC/DC. All models have a NEMA 4 outdoor housing Universal-HORIZON-Controller-UHCwith the option to upgrade to 304 Stainless Steel. A calibrated switched-leg photocell is used for automatic day/night switching. The UHC will provide over 20 Fault Codes for quick analysis of system condition. User programmed System Configuration Switches allow for modification of controller to meet site requirements. The UHC provides comprehensive status indicators and alarm contacts for easy connection to remote monitoring systems.
