Constant Current Regulator

Constant Current Regulator


Thycon Constant Current Regulators are designed to provide high-quality, regulated, single phase power to achieve maximum performance and lifetime of airfield lighting systems.

Remote monitoring
Modem connection enables the MC2 to dial and notify Thycon or a remote user automatically whenever an alarm condition arises.

Thycon’s Service Centre automatically logs data, performs analysis and diagnostics and then alerts our 24-hour staff if further intervention is required.

All MC2 utilisation and incidents found or reported are logged and a full report is provided for each occurrence.

The report highlights remedial actions, cautions and follow up recommendations. Alternatively, the remote user can interrogate the MC2 at will.

Thycon power system monitor
The MC2 monitor offers the user a web-based interactive diagnostic tool and database management system for continuous real-time monitoring of MC2 system utilisations, alarms, events and variables. The database management logs data to your PC’s hard disk for future analysis and display.
