The Headset Converter (Twin Jack) is for use with aviation headsets or helmets fitted with standard twin jack plugs and allows the headset or helmet to connect to a Lynx Micro System Radio/Power Interface.
The converter will allow virtually any twin jack military or general aviation headset or helmet to be used in aircraft which have Lync Micro System equipment installed.
The converter can be configured to work with speaker impedance from 8 to 600 Ohms and dynamic electric or carbon (Amplified) microphones. Active Noise Reduction (ARN) headsets can be powered form the converter using the tip of the microphone jack plug.
The Converter is backwards compatible with all Micro System products and maintains all of the power/radio interface functions including selective PTT operation and microphone muting.
The Converter effectively transforms the Micro System Radio/Power Interface into a high quality general aviation intercom system and is very useful in syndicated aircraft where some users wish to retain the use of the general aviation headset or helmet
The Converter is also useful for pilots of Vintage aircraft as it allows classic helmets to be used with State of the Art intercom system and modern radios including hand held radios.
My old hand-held radio and headset date back to the 80s. Theyre GA (I was using them for sailplanes/motorgliders), and now I have a new interest in ultralight trikes to get back into soaring. Turns out that micro-systems are popular/standard in LSA, so this is exactly what I needed for some dual-time in a 2-seater. It just plugs right in and works!
