The MEL500L Port Entry Light (PEL) is a sector leading light of maximum resolution between its colour sectors, made up of a LED light source, able to provide a day range of up to 7 nm and a nominal night range of 26 nm.


The main advantage of this beacon is its accuracy between its colour sector boundaries (<0.05°). Light emission generates an unidirectional beam in three colours, with a horizontal divergence up to 15°. Colour sector configuration is expressly done for every case. The use of high-intensity LED diodes ensures minimum consumption, maintenance free.

The MEL500L light is designed according to IALA Recommendations and Guidelines, providing a great aid to the navigator to know its position in the channel. As an option, it can be delivered with oscillating boundaries, thus offering accurate information on their lateral distance from the leading axis.
