ACR Electronics has released a new automatic buoy marker light, a high-intensity LED strobe that provides brighter light in all directions for clear marking of a man-overboard site.

The SM-3 provides 360° visibility for approximately 2 miles and is suitable for all global commercial and leisure users requiring a reliable crew overboard (COB) marker light.

Mikele D’Arcangelo, vice president of global marketing and product management, said, “With its small size and rugged design, the SM-3 sets the industry standard for buoy lights. Our SM-2, and now the updated SM-3, is well proven as the most effective product of its type for the commercial marine sector and any application needing a reliable COB light.”

When thrown in the water, the new light automatically activates and rights itself to float upright in all conditions, strobing approximately once per second for over 24 hours at -1°C on two user-replaceable AA L91 Lithium batteries, with a minimum light intensity of over three candelas. The SM-3 weighs 406g including batteries and bracket and measures 253mm in length with a 56mm diameter.

Housed in a UV resistant polycarbonate case, the SM-3 is supplied with a mounting bracket which fits the same hole pattern as the company’s current SM-2 market light, making retrofit easy for users wishing to upgrade.

The SM-3 is USCG, MED and SOLAS-approved and is suitable for commercial maritime applications including petro-marine, workboats, cruise liners, tugs and workboats, supply vessels, cargo vessels, passenger vessels and fishing charters.
