HEL-STAR 6 Strobes come in many models. Some of which cannot be reprogrammed meaning you're stuck with the light settings you initially selected.
All our HEL-STAR 6 Strobes are the field programable base model (HS-640-36)
This means we will program your strobe prior to shipment, and you can change the function settings at any time by sending it back to us for program service.
Expect 1 week handling time to allow for initial programming.
HEL-STAR 6® is a purpose-built helmet mounted LED light designed for airborne/MFF, tactical and other military operations.
HEL-STAR 6® combines the basic features of the earlier HEL-STAR 4® & HEL-STAR 5® multi-function marker lights into a compact, integrated design with enhanced omni-directional visibility, easy battery replacement, and waterproofness to 130′ sea water.
Improved sliding switches enhance tactile feel and provide positive, intuitive control between the two operating modes and four user-defined functions. Functions can be selected from virtually any combination of White, four different color options, and IR – either flashing or steady. Variable flash rates, intensities and coded signals provide expanded IFF capability.
Independent testing has confirmed that the HEL-STAR 6® exceeds the FAA’s 3 statute mile visibility requirement. HEL-STAR 6® is built on a platform that allows new technology to be incorporated as it becomes available. As mission demands shift and expand, HEL-STAR 6® can evolve with changing user needs.
The HEL-STAR 6 is very user-friendly; even in the blind. It is a true full-spectrum signal light whose modes can be quickly switched in the field to accommodate various mission requirements. The nose of the HEL-STAR 6 contains the mode switch, allowing the user to change between “A” and “B” functions. The function/power control switch is located at the tail of the unit and moves perpendicular to the mode switch. This provides the user a clear indicator as to what switch they are activating without having to look.
There are two series of HEL-STAR 6: 620 and 640. The 620 features a lock clip in the nose that requires a tool for removal. When the arrow on the clip is facing the nose, the HEL-STAR 620 will be locked into two functions. The clip must be pried up, flipped and replaced to switch to the other two functions. This provides extra security for the user so that he/she can choose either Overt Visible or Infrared functions only, eliminating the possibility of accidentally flashing a visible strobe in the field.
The HEL-STAR 640 Series provides a simple detented switch at the nose for changing modes on the fly.
