For flash synchronisation of lanterns installed over longer ranges, Sealite has developed an advanced GPS system. Lanterns are fitted with an internally integrated GPS module which also enables the lights to maintain their high IP68 waterproof rating.
- Long range flash synchronisation via GPS satellites
- Synchronisation of independently flashing lanterns installed over longer distances to clearly mark channels & entrances
- Easy to use - simply set lanterns to the same flash pattern & they will automatically come into synchronisation
- No limitation on distances or objects between lanterns
- Each lantern operates independently (no operator intervention required)
- Internal GPS module with no external components required, maintaining IP68 waterproof rating of lantern
- Clear identification of AtoNs against confusing background lighting achieved when lights flash in unison
- Inbuilt allowing for easy installation
The inbuilt GPS receiver and advanced software of the Sealite synchronised lanterns allow for the adoption of SeaFlare channel marking – a unique system that cascades the flash synchronisation of channel lanterns in a uni or bi-directional flash pattern.
In Australia, the Port of Melbourne Corporation has adopted this technology from Sealite to clearly identify the channel leading into Station Pier – an area that regularly accommodates some of the world’s largest passenger vessels.
The neighbouring Port of Geelong utilise this technology to safely guide Afromax Tankers among other large sized vessels into harbour.
