New Product Release - SL125 GPS Synchronised Lantern
Utilising latest advancements in GPS technology, Sealite Pty Ltd has developed an internal synchronisation system for the popular SL125 5 & 6 nautical mile range of LED lanterns. The SL125-GPS represents the next generation of marine lighting - as it is built within the unit, and requires no external wiring, aerial or operator intervention. If the lanterns are set to the same flash character, their flash rates will synchronise over an unlimited distance within a few minutes of operation. Full product details can be found on the SL125 section of the online catalogue.
Synchronisation is the preferred choice of sea pilots wishing to see a clear outline of a channel or entrance to a harbour surrounded by background lighting. It is the future for channel and entrance marking. A major advantage of the internal GPS based system is that the GPS is not limited by range or line-of-sight and the lantern maintains its IP68 water immersion rating. A number of Australian ports have already commenced conversion programs, and many are evaluating the new SL125-GPS against their requirements.
