Sealite, a global manufacturer of marine aids to navigation and headquartered in Australia, is enhancing marine safety by assisting navigators in determining their position, safe course, or to visually identify marine hazards with the use of the new SL-300 Series Long Range Lanterns.

Sealite has introduced the new SL-300 series 13–21NM Long Range Marine Lanterns with a 1.5 degree vertical divergence. These lanterns are suitable for a range of applications such as long range shore based beacons, fixed beacons or lighthouse optic replacements and upgrades.

Long range lanterns can be used to mark treacherous coastlines, hazardous shoals, reefs or indicate a safe passage for vessels entering a shallow or dangerous channel and other applications.

"The response to the new SL-300 Series long range marine lanterns has been really pleasing, and today we are thrilled to offer a lantern with a smaller form factor design, the brightest intensity per tier in the industry and the best in class PC programming tool to the new SL-300 series 1.5 Degree Long Range Marine Lanterns," said Michael Walker, Sealite's Head of Global Sales & Marketing.

Sealite's SL-300 series 13-21NM long range marine lanterns are available with a variety of power configurations. The new SL-300 series lanterns now come with next-generation circuitry and optics making it 22% more efficient in power consumption per tier.

The unit will accept voltages between 20–58VDC. Sealite's lanterns are fully self-contained, have a 7 stage powder coated aluminium body and corrosion resistant, acrylic lens specially designed for use with LEDs to maximise light intensity and uniformity. Optional GSM monitoring and control, AIS type 1 or type 3 along with GPS synchronization for flashing multiple lanterns in unison.
