The WM-L350C high intensity LED beacon is primarily designed to be deployed as a long-range beacon for lightbeacon or lighthouse applications. The effective range is typically 18 nautical miles @ T=0.74 (or in excess of 50,000 cds) but is capable of achieving beyond and up to 24 nautical miles.
WM-L350C uses a special customised multiple-chipset LED light source (high intensity powerful light source within a single component assembly), coupled individually with a WM-patented lens optic for high efficiency light projection. The configuration is completely flexible to suit end-user’s unique requirement of luminous range.
WM-L350C high intensity long-range LED beacon housing is constructed of corrosion-resistant, cast aluminium alloy material that holds an array of toughened, WM-patent designed, UV-stabilized, high precision-molded acrylic fresnel lens ensure minimum variation in output intensities. Lantern housing with UV-stabilized acrylic cover and be able to withstand high temperature outdoor exposure.
The WM-L350C never needs to be opened for servicing and maintenance because the light is factory sealed to IP68 and with no moving parts and lamps to be replaced. The WM-350C can be an omnidirectional or directional (sectored) light beacon.
The heart of the WM-L350C is the intelligent digital controller module accepts a wide range of input voltages. Essentially for LED technology, it regulates and maintained constant distribution of current to each tier and sub-groupings of LED array. Precision controlled to ensure the LEDs are operated and produces constant intensity with highest efficiency.
Flash characters are programmable via an InfraRed programmer unit (SYD-1 MASTER). Up to 256 preprogrammed flash codes are available and other commands available are FORCING ON / OFF, RESTORE to PHOTOCELL operation and BEACON ADDRESS (for telemetry purposes).
Telemetry tap-off / Communication with the WM-L350C high intensity long-range LED beacon is done via RS485/RS232 serial communication leads (provided upon request). This feature applies to all WM’s LED light models.
