Sealite develops first medium-range lantern with AIS monitoring
SOMERVILLE, Australia July 11, 2017 Sealite is pleased to introduce the world's first mid-range lantern with a fully integrated AIS system inside the lanterns body.
Sealite's SL-155 series are high intensity 6-13NM medium range marine lanterns. The compact single tier lantern features extremely low power consumption, minimal maintenance and now comes available in 2.5, 5 or 10 degree vertical distributions with a class-leading integrated Type 1 or Type 3 AIS.
When fitted, the AIS is encapsulated within the body of the SL-155 so no additional mounting or cables are required for a separate AIS unit. Supporting AIS Message 6 and Message 21, users can receive crucial information such as operation status and positioning in accurate real-time messages.
With the physical lantern size unchanged, the SL-155 offers significant advantages over other assemblies. The all in one unit is significantly easier and cheaper to install than other AIS installations and its small form size is a cost effective alternative to larger RACONs, commonly used for electronic marking of navigational hazards.
Suitable for a range of port and harbour solutions, the SL-155 with integrated AIS is the space saving solution for all of your AIS monitoring needs.
