Control and Display Systems
LED light plates & EL light Plates
We have vast experience in the design and production of integrated panels for both civil and military application. The technology used for backlighting can be incandescent lamps, LED (Light Emitting Diode) or electroluminescent (EL) and the backlight colours can match all requirements.
Illuminated Control Panels
Illuminated switches, control panels and displays are used wherever there is a requirement for an operator/machine interface. From the driver in his car to the most sophisticated fighting machines operated by the world’s leading armed forces.
Stop-choc have more than 30 years experience in supplying custom illuminated control panels for aircraft, marine and vehicle applications. We have the facilities and capabilities to design, develop and prove all our solutions in house providing greater control and flexibility of supply.
Our range of aircraft fit equipment includes light plates, illuminated control panels, bezels, displays and flood lighting systems. These units can include a vast range of special features such as programmable switch legends, annunciators, toggle switches, rotary switches, miniature filament lamps, LED or electro-luminescent lighting.
Illuminated Aerospace Panels
We have extensive experience in designing and manufacturing custom illuminated aerospace panels. We have the facilities and capabilities to develop and test all our solutions in house providing greater control and flexibility of supply.
Attention getting indicators may be a feature incorporated within the control panel. These would be hidden until lit and sunlight readable. Backlit liquid crystal displays (LCD), light emitting diode (LED) and electro-luminescent (EL) displays may also be integrated within the aerospace panel.
NVIS Panels & NVG Panels
NVIS Panels designed and manufactured by Stop-choc, night vision compatible (NVIS) display specialists. Compatibility with pilot night vision equipment conforming to MIL-L-85762A or MIL-STD-3009 is a common requirement. New designs or modification of existing equipment and cockpits to this standard is achieved by matching the filter to the light source.
NVIS Illuminated Control Panels
- Our range of NVG compatible control panels meet the exacting requirements and specifications which cover NVIS lighting. These include:
- MIL-STD-3009 Classes A, B and C
NVIS Cockpit Panels
In addition to our NVIS illuminated panel range (Class 1, NVIS Green A), we also design and manufacture a complete array of NVG Compatible lighting products.
As well as many new NVIS panel installations we also have extensive experience undertaking NVIS cockpit conversions.
We have our own comprehensive in house testing facility compliant with industry standard testing.
Our comprehensive range of NVIS panels and cockpit displays are used across the globe in both Civilian and Military applications.
Simulated instrument Panels
We supply a full range of equipment for aircraft and vehicle simulators. These systems are used for pilot and operator training and need to accurately mimic the real life installations including identical illumination and tactile accuracy. Simulated instrument panels can be supplied complete with any required electronics, RS422, 232, 485 or CAN Bus interface systems.
Our enhanced product capability is illustrated by our involvement in many current civil and defence programmes including Boeing 787, A400M, Hawk, NH90, Super Lynx, Tornado, F16 and Eurofighter Typhoon.
