The FA-249 Marine Lantern is a rugged, compact and lightweight signal lantern constructed to withstand the mechanical stresses of service on buoys; it includes a number of features designed to endure harsh marine elements while maintaining structural integrity and reducing the need for maintenance. Available in white, red, green and amber.
A 3‐piece lens mounting system engineered to eliminate lantern failures from cracked or broken components at the lantern hinge point
Candlepower output of the acrylic lens exceeds that of larger conventional pressed glass lenses because acrylic has a higher color transmission factor and better optical characteristics
Fittings in base for electrical connection
2 options for a tool‐less entry system: Stainless steel thumb screws, Stainless steel latches (The SS latch can be secured with a padlock to deter vandals)
Silicone rubber gasket for air‐tight seal
Candelabra, pre‐focused, marine signal lamps mounted on a rotating mechanism (Flash changer) that automatically brings the next lamp into precise focal position when the operating lamp fails.
External photocell, which limits lantern operation to hours of darkness only
Cat optic insert designed to catch light lost in top of lantern and redirect it to horizontal plane, increasing horizontal candlepower by 5%
TR-3 Power Supply with 120/240 VAC Input and 3 amp 12 Volt flashed output
Uniflash® Series wireless synchronization system
UHF/VHF radio for monitoring status of buoy lighting system or radio receiver for self-test actuation
