Searchlight Intensity. The beam of light is produced by a xenon arc lamp with a color temperature of 6000 degrees Kelvin and is rated at 45 Million Candle Power.

Lamp. Xenon-arc, 1500 hour average life, warranted for 1500 hours. Warranted hourly lamp cost is considerably less than non-warranted hourly carbon cost and non-warranted hourly cost of many incandescent lamps.

Adjustable Beam Size. The horizontally mounted lamp combined with the deep parabolic metal reflector gives the capability of changing from the most concentrated intense beam for long reaches to a much larger beam for lighting large areas at closer range. Beam size can be adjusted manually at the searchlight or electrically from a remote control station as an optional feature.

Reflector. Precision, parabolic, constructed of virtually indestructible nickel with corrosion resistant rhodium finish. Short focal length deep parabola captures a higher percentage of total light from the lamp than do most conventional reflectors thus producing a remarkably intense beam.

Cover Glass. Extremely strong impact and thermal shock resistant heat tempered clear glass.

Starter. Simple, reliable, and compact. Produces the high voltage necessary to start the lamp instantly. It is readily accessible and replaceable as a single unit.

Bases. Standard and pedestal for manual control. Motorized base for distant electric control (DEC) can be controlled from one or more remote stations. All are constructed of high strength corrosion resistant aluminum and contain a sliding stop allowing horizontal rotations in excess of 360 degrees without damaging the electric cables.

Drum. Constructed of marine grade corrosion resistant material with a hinged front door for easy lamp replacement. Rear dome is removable for ease in servicing.

Finish. Drum interior finished with heat resistant flat black paint. Exterior surfaces are white enamel and mechanical control shafts inside pilot house are polished brass. The control parts that are normally polished can be chrome plated (see optional features).

Wiring. Three conductor (one ground) power cable and multiconductor control cables extend through watertight stuffing tubes in drum and are clamped to rotating base. Sufficient length is supplied to terminate in a junction box (not supplied) near the searchlight without causing mechanical stress when searchlight is moved through its entire horizontal and vertical travel.

Electrical. A power supply to produce the required ballasted DC for the searchlight, control station, and DEC components are required.



Power Supply 4198PS

Operates on AC 120/1/50-6- to provide ballasted DC power to the searchlight. Also contains fused disconnect switch, contactor, DC ammeter, and time meter.

Net weight 99 lb (50 kg), shipping 131 lb (59 kg).

Optional Desk Stand Kit 6810X.

Available at extra charge to permit power supply to be mounted on deck instead of bulkhead.

See Configuration Guide

Searchlight can be tailored to your exact needs by specifying these features at time of order at extra charge.

Special control length. longer or shorter than standard. Specify length from bottom of base (vertical centerline of base if DM) to centerline of lever handle or large wheel.

Special pedestal height. higher or lower than standard. Specify height from bottom of base to centerline of beam.
