Archway Marine Lighting Introduces New Hi-Tech Searchlight Fixture Line

Archway Marine Lighting, St.

Louis, Mo., has introduced a new hitech searchlight fixture line suitable for towboats, oceangoing vessels, passenger vessels and other specialized workboats needing a very bright and fog-penetrating beam.

According to the manufacturer, the sanshin, solid-state, xenon searchlight design makes it easy to install, thus reducing installation expense; the solid-state electronics provides for much reduced mainte- nance expense as there are fewer electronic parts to wear out, such as transformers, capacitors.

Also, the glass-reflector with metal back provides a superior optics operation over life of fixture as the reflector is easy to clean and will not bend out of shape; the cooling system provides an ideal environment for the xenon bulk, improving its performance and increasing its life; the optics system allows the lamp to be installed and replaced with no tools, which will reduce service cost; the dip and the elevation of the fixture is accomplished without rack and pinion gear (which can be jammed with ice), thus making the sanshin an all-weather fixture; and the power supply features a variable amp control which allows the lamp candle power to be varied to need, thereby increasing the life of the lamp.

The line includes two wattages, the 1,000-watt and the 2,000-watt.

Each wattage comes in cabin-control with auto-focus and full remote control.

Archway marine carries inventory on all fixture sizes and stocks all replacement parts.
