For flash synchronisation of lanterns installed over longer ranges, Sealite has developed an advanced GPS system. Lanterns are fitted with an internally integrated GPS module which also enables the lights to maintain their high IP68 waterproof rating.
SeaFlare „¢ Technology
The inbuilt GPS receiver and advanced software of the Sealite synchronised lanterns allow for the adoption of SeaFlare „¢ channel marking €“ a unique system that cascades the flash synchronisation of channel lanterns in a uni or bi-directional flash pattern.
In Australia, the Port of Melbourne Corporation has adopted this technology from Sealite to clearly identify the channel leading into Station Pier €“ an area that regularly accommodates some of the world €™s largest passenger vessels.
The neighbouring Port of Geelong utilise this technology to safely guide Afromax Tankers among other large sized vessels into harbour.
