Navigation lights are a set of illuminators intended for designating a vessel and specifying the type and the nature of movement or parking at night.

Navigation lights data helps make an appropriate decision and reduce the collision risk at night or in restricted visibility conditions.

Navigation lights are signal and distinguishing lights of different colors and beam direction. The useful data is derived from the light color and their relative position on a vessel. Even if we assume that no one vessel is fitted with modern electronic navigation systems, one can be guided by light data, preserving high security when steering and relative maneuvering.

The navigation light system consists of the following components:

  1. Masthead light is a white light located in the centerline plane of a vessel and continuously illuminating the horizon arc at 22.5° and installed so as to illuminate along the snout up to 22.5° behind the traverse of every side.
  2. Broadside lights include a right-side green light and left-side red light. Each of them continuously illuminate the horizon arc at 112.5° and installed so as to illuminate along the snout up to 22.5° behind the traverse of the respective side. On a vessel less than 20 m in length, broadside lights can be arranged in a single light installed in the centerline plane.
  3. Tail light is a white light located as closely to the tail as possible, continuously illuminating the horizon arc at 135° and installed so as to illuminate along the tail up to 67.5° toward each side.
  4. Hauling light is a yellow light having the same features as the Tail light (see "c" of this Rule).
  5. All-round light is a light continuously illuminating the horizon arc at 360°.
  6. Flashlight is a light that flashes with regular intervals (120 or more flashes per minute).

C50 LED navigation lights are designed for vessels over 50 m long. The light effective range is 3 nautical miles.

The light source is LED modules with 24V effective voltage and 11–36V range.

Body: brass alloy (admiralty brass Л070-1).

Running Temperature: -40°С to + 55°С.

Transparent lens: shockproof borosilicate glass.

Every light is powered from an individual high-reliability 230V/24V DC supply unit installed in an individual IP68 body.

Lights can be controlled with the help of a navigation panel.

Navigation lights C50 conform to all the requirements stipulated in International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea 1972 and COLREG-72 published by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

Navigation lights C50 have the Type Approval Certificate and Form 6.5.30 of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping.
