The MaxPulse is a solid state landing light controller. The small size and one ounce weight places this controller in a class of its own. Extreme long life, low temperature operation, high current capability, noise free operation and small size makes it a ideal landing light controller for all aircraft. This new STC version sports eight functional pulse, flash and steady state modes of operation. It is also an ideal replacement for old technology controllers requiring large heavy heat sinks and or noisy relays as part of the installation.

MAXPULSE LAND LGHT CNTRL STCD
I have installed four or five of these now in the past five years. Theyve always worked great, Ive used them with hid, LED and incandescent. They arent cheap but the installation is much easier than most pulse Lighting systems. 1 versatile switch, one power wire, one ground and a left and right power wire out to the lights. You can wig wag and or pulse at different speeds.
I am now out of decals. Thank you to all the nice folks that asked for one. “ I had my graphics company make me new decals, adhesive type, with L & R instead of P & S, if you want one contact me and I will send you one free.”
Installed for a pair of Whelen 71125 recognition lights in the wingtips. Works fantastic and as advertised. It does not feel cheap as others have stated. I would like to see a unit made that had some backlighting for the mode selection.
Just completed installing the MaxPulse in a PA12. 2.5 hrs. from the time I opened my tool box to the time I closed it. I thought it was a straight forward, easy install that was the best bang for the buck when I compared everything else out there. The plastic housing was a no brainer, make sure the nut isnt cross threaded before you put a tool too it. Love it, easy install and works as advertised. As a midair survivor I believe anything you can do to be seen is worth it.
Cheesy Plastic - Yes Pricy - Ohh Yes Port & Starboard - Yes Does it work as advertised - Yes Would I buy another - Yes I just purchased another one of their products and will soon be happy with it. I had my graphics company make me new decals, adhesive type, with L & R instead of P & S, if you want one contact me and I will send you one free. email@example.com
After reading the previous comment I was thinking that this unit would be sub-par. It is true that the threads are plastic, but that means that you don't crank down on the nut and strip the threads. The anti rotation pin on the unit makes up for the threads being plastic in my mind. The quality of the knob seemed fine to me. The placard labeling is not very intuitive in my mind, using port and starbord as to which lamp is supposed to be on. The operation works great. The installation (including wiring) is probably one of the easiest in the pulse-light market from the other units available.
I received the switch and had my A&P install it. The lights did not work as advertised. The STC holder was contacted but was not much help. He simply said he bought the STC so he could fabricate and sell the switches but did not do any of the engineering so he could not help us troubleshoot the problem. Another switch was sent and installed, and this time the lights performed as advertised, so first switch was defective. Haven't had the switch long enough to add anything else that might be helpful.
I cant comment on the reliability of the electronics but the mechanical quality is extremely sub par to what I would expect of an STC part. Its completely plastic, including the threaded shaft which is how it has to be mounted using a brass nut. Thats the biggest problem - I have a modern aluminum panel - I was barely able to get the nut started and get close to 3/4 turn after that. I cant imagine why the cheap plastic shaft is so short that it barely protrudes through the thickness of my panel. Is another 2 or 3 threads that expensive? I feel for sure it will eventually strip the single thread holding it in the panel and fall out. Other than that, it does work.
