Pel Sector Light
LED sector leading lights are aids to navigation that display different colours and/or rhythms over designated arcs, providing directional information to the mariner.
Depending on the viewing angle, the light colour (red, white or green) and rhythm indicate whether the vessel is on the centre of the navigable channel (white sector: safe passage) or near to one lateral limit (red or green sector: port or starboard).
In case a higher precision is required, oscillating boundaries can be included as an option. Avimar delivers leading lights with LED light sources and high-precision sectors (<0.05°).
Through the oscillating boundaries, the light alternates between two colours in proportion to the deviation of the vessel from the channel axis.
Avimar´s MEL leading lights assist to the safe guidance of big vessels through narrow channels. Nominal ranges up to 23 nautical miles can be achieved
The AVM-MRL are long-range LED Range Lights, especially designed to mark port approaching and entrance channels, rivers and straight lanes in bays.
They are commonly used in traditional leading stations of two lights, in both day and night modes. The navigator can move forward by the centre of a narrow channel when the two lights are aligned, separating them when the vessel strays from one side; this provides information on his position outside the leading line. When these lights are synchronized, they are much more conspicuous to distinguish them in locations with strong background lighting.
The AVM-MRL light produces an unidirectional beam with a horizontal divergence from 1.7° to 4.3°. Its luminous source, consisting of high-power LEDs of 100,000 hours average life, makes it a maintenance-free beacon
