The box sized Daniamant lifebuoy lights are designed for automatic activation by the releasing of the lifebuoy to which the unit is attached. The light activates when pulled from the housing and can also be activated manually if needed.
The yellow L160 and L161 are MED/SOLAS approved. The orange L163 is USCG/MED/SOLAS approved. In addition to the above approvals both the L161 and L163 are also approved by ATEX and IECEx and are ETL listed under UL913 which means they are Intrinsically Safe (category 1) and can be used in hazardous zones 0, 1 and 2.
MED/SOLAS and USCG standards call for the Lifebuoy lights to be dropped from 30 meters. All these Lifebuoy lights have passed a drop test from 76 meters high. This makes these lifebuoy lights suitable for use on any platform or vessel with high bridge wings. All Lifebuoy Lights are supplied with a unique mounting bracket enabling easy fitting in all locations
