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 between 1° and 10°. 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.
