Series 60 and Series 61

Aqua Signal’s Series 60 and Series 61 are LED navigation lights for vessels from 20 to 50 m and above 50 meters in length. Long product lifetime has been an essential priority when designing the two single tier lanterns. A smart, tamper proof countdown system will also give the user a warning when it’s time to replace the lanterns. Even at an ambient temperature at +45°C the lifetime is 100 000 hours.

Navigation lights are all about safety. Glamox has developed Series 60 and 61 to make worries about failing lanterns redundant.

Item No: Series 60 and Series 61

Long product lifetime
The Series 60 and 61 are designed to last for 100.000 hours at an ambient temperature of +45°C. That’s twice the lifetime of most competing products. To achieve this kind of longevity the design must be sturdy and all components must be of high quality. This includes a high-quality LED driver and driver technology and the use of materials that can withstand rough weather and varying temperatures, such as seawater resistant aluminium, polycarbonate and hardened tempered glass.

The system lifetime of the LED light source and driver is 11 years given a continuousruntime, 24 hours a day at an ambient temperature of +45°C.

Integrated countdown system
Having a lantern come to end of life or fail while you’re at sea is something you don’t want to risk. This is why the Series 60 and 61 are equipped with a countdown system that will let you know when it’s time to replace the navigation light. To make the system tamper proof the timer is integrated in each lantern while the message is communicated and displayed in the control panel. The system reflects the use of the lantern, whether it is exposed to cold temperatures and harsh weather or conditions with less wear and tear. This system provides added safety for the vessel.

Low EMC values
There are strict requirements for electromagnetic computability (EMC) for lanterns that should be installed close to VHF antenna. Our lanterns type 60 and 61 have a low emission level and were tested and comply with the emission and immunity requirements of the IEC 60945.

A flexible choice
Series 60 and 61 are designed to work with the Aqua Signal Navigation light control panel, but they offer a lot of flexibility because they can be operated with third party panels (1). The products are easy to install, only four bolts to fastenand the internal connection box offers a lot of space for connection wires. It can be installed upside-down for all variants, with exception of Port, Starboard and Masthead due to visibility angels in COLREG requirements.

(1) Compatibility must be confirmed by control panel supplier. For vessels above 50 meters, using Series 61, a dual installation is required (for Masthead, starboard, port and stern). To be according to COLREG requirements.
