Features

  • Hand Microphone - completely with push-to-talk button on the side, just like with real radio communication devices!
  • Built-In speaker with separate volume control
  • Headset Connector for standard 3,5 mm headsets, with separate output audio volume control (headset not included)
  • Dimmable Backlight using ultra-bright white LEDs behind a laser-engraved high quality front panel
  • USB 3.0 connector used both for data and electrical supply - no external power supply needed!

Usability

The PTT hand microphone, the built-in speaker and an additional headset can be used at the same time!

  • During phases of limited workload (e.g. while flying enroute or controlling an ATC sector with little traffic), you can enjoy the comfort and freedom of an easy-to-use hand microphone - there is no need to keep your headset on all the time, and even if you leave your desk for a minute you won't miss any important calls on your active frequency
  • When workload get's higher (e.g. when starting your approach or as more and more traffic enters your sector), just put on your headset and toggle the microphone selector switch - immediately, you have both of your hands free for flying or radar scope handling!

  • USB 3.0 Hub for data and power distribution
  • C-Media USB Soundcard

  • USB powered mini-speaker

ATCBox Quick Start Guide

Details

English Version will be available soon!

Diese kleine Anleitung soll helfen, die ATCBox schnell und einfach in Betrieb zu nehmen. Solltest Du weitere Hilfe bei der Einrichtung benötigen, klick hier und kontaktiere uns!

Schritt 1 - Anstecken

Dazu einfach den USB 3.0 Stecker der ATCBox mit einer freien USB 3.0 Buchse des Rechners verbinden.

Sollte das Kabel der ATCBox zu kurz sein, kann ein handelsübliches USB 3.0-Verlängerungskabel verwendet werden.

Unter Umständen ist auch der Betrieb an einem USB 2.0-Anschluss möglich – wird aber aufgrund des Stromverbrauchs der integrierten Hintergrundbeleuchtung nicht empfohlen, um eine Überlastung der USB-Buchse zu vermeiden.

Achtung: Es wird empfohlen, die Box direkt mit dem PC zu verbinden – d.h. nicht über einen USB-Hub, da ein solcher bereits in der Box integriert ist und eine derartige Kaskadierung unter Umständen für Probleme sorgen kann!

Schritt 2 - Soundkarte einrichten

Dialogfeld "Audiogeräte verwalten" öffnen.
