45 Million Beam Candlepower projects beam 4 miles on a clear night

500 Watt Xenon Yacht Searchlight

45 Million Candlepower and Electric Beam-size Focus

  • Beam Intensity: 45 Million Beam Candlepower – Illuminates an object/person approximately 6708 meters (4 miles) on a clear night
  • Electric Beam-Size Focus: Beam can be widened and narrowed electrically, throughout a continuous spectrum.
  • Beam-Size Focus Knob: External Knob changes beam-size with no tools, and provides back-up should the focus motor fail.
  • Proportional-Speed Joystick: Speed and Direction are controlled by Joystick… i.e. “Move Joystick to the first position and Beam moves slowly… move Joystick further and it speeds up!”.
  • “Multi-board Safety Back-up”: Electronic power supply design incorporates two boards in parallel, and if one fails, the beam will still operate in back-up mode.
  • Bullet-Resistant Reflector: Virtually indestructible Nickel Material helps prevent breakage if fixture is struck by bullets or rocks.
  • Finish: Chrome Finish or White Powder (Custom Colors Also)
  • Anti-icing Heater: (optional): Thermostatically-controlled heaters are located in the Base to prevent ice build-up.
  • Azimuth Position Indicator (optional): Position Indicator Panel displays the Beam Aiming Position in Degrees.
  • NightFINDER™ Thermal Camera (optional): Embedded Thermal Camera provides greater Night Vision Capability and the Searchlight Beam and Camera Track on the same target.
  • SmartVIEW™ Control (optional): Micro-processor controls provide switching throughout a BUS Network, with multiple protocols: TCP/IP, RS232/422, RS485 and NMEA 0183.
  • High Powered Strobe (optional): Powerful Nonlethal Deterrent disorients intruder and denies Night Vision.
  • LED Hybrid (optional): Auxiliary LED Light Modules project a “Wall of Light”, 150 Meters Wide and 200 Meters away, for strategic short range and wide area lighting.

Electronic Power Supply with Multi-Board Safety Back-up

GO GREEN with the new CFx 500 Watt Xenon Power Supply. Less than 1/3 the weight, less than 1/3 the size, and 15% more efficient than previous models.

Qty(3) Electronic Boards in Parallel Provide Immediate Safety Back-up.

Features:

  • Light Weight
  • Small Footprint
  • Improved Efficiency
  • *Multi-Board Safety Backup Design
  • 120 & 230 Vold Models Available
  • Integrated Hour Meter and Ammeter
  • Optional Outdoor Models Available
  • Backward compatible with previous generation of power supplies

*Multi-Board Safety Back-up Design: The unique Carlisle & Finch design has multiple electronic boards connected in parallel which provide built-in redundancy. If a board fails, the searchlight will still operate in ‘back-up’ mode. This feature insures greater searchlight reliability, and is offered by no other searchlight company in the world. Other searchlights have a complete outage if an electronic board fails.

Proportional-Speed Joystick Control - Provides Single-Hand Operation

We offer a “Proportional-Speed Joystick”, which controls the Beam-Speed and Beam-Direction by moving the Joystick with a single hand… i.e. “move the Joystick to the first position, and the Beam moves slowly… move it further and the Beam speeds up!”.

Since the need for an additional Speed-Dial or Fast/Slow Switch has now been eliminated (which requires the user to use two hands of operation), the operator can now use his/her free hand to steer the vessel, hold binoculars, or hold a fire arm.

Additional Control Functions are: Beam-ON, Beam-OFF, Electric Beam-size Focus, Proportional-Speed Joystick (described above), and Beam-On Indicator light (offered on Indoor Stations-only).
