1. The waterproof, anti-corrosion and explosion-proof performance

The marine lighting have waterproof, anti-corrosion and explosion-proof performance, ensure reliability and safety in the night boating

2. Lighting persistence

Lighting persistence of the lamp is important, due to the suddenness and uncertainty of the work The length of the working lighting is unable to accurately discriminate. Only if the lighting time is enough long to deal with the need for emergency lighting.

3.Multi-purpose and multi-function

The space is relatively narrow at the operation platform. The high-efficiency multi-function marine lighting is the best choice.

Why Should Choose Marine Searchlight For Night Boating

At present, there is a short life of navigation light, short irradiation distance, small light range, single traditional control method, which extremely affect the safety of night boating.

What is a marine searchlight

The marine searchlight is a device, with a strong light source and a concave mirror which can concentrate the lighting and project in a specific direction, widely used for long-distance lighting and search. It can be concentrated at a small stereoscopic angle with a mirror or lens. The search light is waterproof with good heat dissipation, small volume, lightweight, easy installation and maintenance, safe and reliable application.

Outstanding advantages of a marine searchlight for night boating

1.Suitable for both distance and close lighting
In the long-distance, the powerful xenon lamp searchlight has an effective range of 2000m, which can illuminate the forward route for night navigation, playing a warning effect on the passing ships. Nearby, high-brightness and wide-angle marine LED searchlight provides a good lighting environment for working on board.

2. Intelligent control
Intelligent search lights are divided into two specifications: wireless and wired, and suitable control methods can be selected according to the ship’s own installation characteristics. The wireless remote control can be carried with you and can be controlled anywhere on the boat, which is convenient for controlling the irradiation at any time and providing safety and convenience for night boating.
The irradiation direction can be adjusted at will through the wireless remote control according to actual needs. Compared to the traditional single control method, intelligent control can save more human resources.

3. Multi-function
The ship searchlight has a variety of cruise modes for choosing from to meet the different environmental needs of navigation. It also has features such as preset positions, guard positions, automatic start and stop, radar alarm linkage, etc, to meet the diverse marine needs, and can also maximize ensure the safety of night boating.
