The Purivox DA-RC System (Double Airport – Radio Controlled System) is a radio remote controlled gas cannon for successful and effective bird control on airports.
The radio remote controlled Purivox DA-RC System will produce several very loud bangs (up to 146 dB(A)/1m in front of blast tube) to scare away birds from the area around the unit. By the special design, the Purivox DA-RC System is especially usable along the runway. The blast will scare away the birds on and along the runway. This makes the unit perfect for long areas. Due the special design the Purivox DA-RC System can protect up to 6ha (60.000m²) on your airfield.
Example plan for a runway with a length of 3,2 kilometer (2 miles) with recommended number of units (4-5 units; Type: Purivox DA-RC System).
The DA-RC System is controlled by the decades-long proved Purivox electronic unit which is installed in all of the Purivox Airport devices. This electronic regulates the shots and many other things like:
- Number of shots -2 shots-
- Number of shots -4 shots-
- Volume 2 levels
- Group setting
The remote control of the Purivox DA-RC System is done by the remote controller Purivox TX-H1, which is also a Purivox made device (not included in the Purivox DA-RC System). The range of the Purivox TX-H1 is up to 8km (in a line of sight and good weather).
The Purivox DA-RC System is operated with a standard 11kg forklift gas cylinder (Other gas cylinders are also possible, they only have to fit in the unit and must have the possibility by using in a vertical position). The power supply is given by a 12Volt battery which is charged from the solar panel which is located on the top of the unit and showing towards the sun.
The Purivox DA-RC System is available in two different blast tube versions.
