Series CR2000 Small Self-Contained LED Marine Lantern
Powerful Energy System
CR2000 Small Self-Contained LED Marine Lantern shown with optional bird deterrent.
The CR2000 is a technically advanced, yet simple to use LED Self-Contained Light for marine aids to navigation. It offers up to 3 mile peak intensity visibility, contains (4) solar panels, a battery, LED drive circuitry with flash rhythm selection for up to 256 rhythms and a light sensor to turn the light off during sunlight periods. Its light-weight all plastic design on all exposed parts avoids any type of corrosion.
Light Head: CR acrylic Side Emitting Lens with One 1 watt LED directly attached to large heat sink to allow adequate cooling capability to attain manufacturer rated maximum life expectancy of 100,000 hours. We have received two U.S.A. patents for the innovation of our lens and heat sink mounting system.
Electronics: LED drive circuit utilizes the technique of pulse width modulation (PWM) to optimize efficiency. Flash circuit offers up to 256 flash rhythm selection by DIP switch accessible through the switch cover on bottom of lantern. Daylight Control circuitry automatically turns light ON and OFF at dusk and dawn to save power.
Solar Panels: Four 0.6 Watt with 16% efficiency – the highest efficiency available
Battery : Lead Acid absorbed glass mat (AGM) technology offers the widest operating temperature range among the various battery chemistries presently available. Battery is replaceable.
Amperage/ Hours: 4.5 (20 hour rate)
Allows for up to 11 days of autonomy with 12% flash rhythm duty cycle at 35% power setting. Lower power setting will yield longer days of autonomy.
Output in Candela :
Red: 25 cd
Green: 50 cd
White: 60 cd
Amber: 35 cd
Color wavelengths and output measurements based on International Association of Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) recommendations
Protective Cover: Acrylic - which is unaffected by ultra-violet (UV) radiation and is the superior plastic for optical applications. It is the most scratch resistant of the thermoplastics.
It will not degrade, yellow or get cloudy the way UV stabilized polycarbonate will. Polycarbonate with compounded ultra-violet additive begins to deteriorate immediately and only decays on a longer sloped curve than unprotected polycarbonate.
Mounting Plate: Offers industry standard 3 and 4 bolt hole mounting patterns sized 5/8” (16mm) on a standard 7 7/8” (200mm) bolt circle. Material is high density polyethylene (HDPE).
Venting: Water, dust, dirt, cleaning agents and most oils are repelled by the oleophobic membrane, thereby protecting the electronics while allowing the free-flow of gases to equalize atmospheric pressures inside the lantern.
Installation of Bird Deterrent: The stainless steel bird deterrent wire is “V” shaped. Simply press the bottom of the “V” into the slot on the top of the lantern until you hear a “click”. The “V” wire can be easily removed by pressing a blade screw driver into the slot to press the tab aside. Then tip the wire to the side to remove rather than lifting it directly upwards.
