Program Interface Module For Field Re-Programming of the HEL-STAR 6 & F2

The PIM-701 is a handheld, wireless device that allows military users to re-program the four functions of selected HEL-STAR 6 and F2 models in the field. The PIM itself is programmed through a USB connection to a Windows-based computer or laptop using software that is included with and downloaded from the PIM. Setting new functions in the PIM is handled through an easy to learn, image-oriented graphical user interface.

The PIM functions wirelessly through an infrared (IR) interface with the HEL-STAR over distances of a few feet. The PIM can either re-program any or all of the four factory-installed functions (the NEW PGM button), or to return the HEL-STAR to its original factory settings (the DEFAULT button). The HEL-STAR device provides visible or visible and vibratory confirmation of both program mode readiness and acceptance of the new program or default instructions. The PIM re-programming system provides various protocols and automatic time-outs to prevent inadvertent re-programming and
conserve battery capacity.

The new HEL-STAR F2 is a indent iffy friend or foe light system. Based on the footprint of the HEL-STAR 6 strobe, it consists of a field programmable strobe light and User Feedback Module Buzzer Pad. The UFM is attached by a removable cable to the strobe and when the strobe is interrogated by an IR laser, the UFM buzzes giving a silent, yet tactile alert. That let’s you know that friendlies are in the area. In testing, the system has detected IR Lasers at 800m. The UFM can be placed anywhere in the helmet for comfort.
