A High Definition Sector Light Model MEL250L has been recently installed at the Locquemeau Lighthouse (near Lannion), supplied satisfactorily to the Subdivision des Phares et Balises in Lézardrieux, France.
This light allows and improves the access to this small port of Côtes d’Armor, thanks to its sectors of high definition. The main advantage of this beacon is its accuracy between its colour sector boundaries (<0.07°). Light emission generates an unidirectional beam in three colours, with a divergence in this case of 1º in the white sector and 5º in the red and green sectors respectively.
This Light has been tested by CEREMA Technical Service, which has duly validated it.
This follows the CEREMA validation of three other models of lanterns manufactured by MSM:
The High-resolution LED Sector light with o boundaries, model MEL500L-Osc, CEREMA confirming thus the accuracy of this equipment for the maritime navigation.
The LED Compact Lantern, model MCL330, whose vertical divergences at 10% and 50% of intensity allow a use on fixed and floating supports and can be used in France for maximum ranges of 2 to 4 nautical miles, according to the solar conditions of the site and the duty cycle of the lantern.
The LED Compact Lantern, model MCL250 which can be used in France for maximum ranges of 3 to 5 nautical miles, according to the solar conditions of the site and the duty cycle of the lantern.
Several other Lights of this type are in project of installation in the coasts of Armor, the next to be delivered will be the Sector Light of Morsalines, model MBL400S, which will be installed in front of the port of Saint Vaast la Hougue.
