CONTROL LIGHTS AND
OTHER EQUIPMENT

- USING YOUR EXISTING
MFD DISPLAY.

We are proud to present a new way to control and monitor your lights – and other equipment.

THE LOPOLIGHT CONTROL HUB
Monitoring of navigation lights is a requirement for larger vessels and commercial vessels in general, the rationale behind this requirement is sound and correct - as incorrect signaling can contribute to accidents at sea.

During 2023 Lopolight will introduce a Navigation Light Control and Monitoring system for small vessels that meets their requirements for simple operation, compact installation, and good economy.

APPROVED
MFD BRANDS

We have entered into a collaboration with Raymarine, Garmin, Navico (B&G, Simrad, Lowrance) and Furuno around an ’app’ for their MFD, so that the Lopolight navigation lights can be controlled directly from the multifunction screen on board.

OUTPUT AND "CONSUMER"
There are 16 outputs, these can be used for all types of power consumers such as lanterns, deck lights, boom lights and more. The individual ’consumer’ must not exceed 2A and the whole unit has a maximum load of 10A. The unit operates at 10-32 VDC.

OUTPUT CONNECTIONS
The output terminals are presented in a direct cable terminal block at the bottom of the box. Power enters through the same terminal connection which also contains the outputs. Including alarm output etc.

ALARM INDICATIONS
The monitoring is performed as a current monitoring, and an alarm is given in the event of a lack of power consumption. The unit has an output for an audible alarm, which can be placed freely and controlled via the MFD interface.

MFD NETWORK

In addition to this ’app’, the core of the system is a device to which the individual nav lights are connected and powered, this device has an output to the MFDs that are on board - via an Ethernet connection. The unit is compact (approx. 150 x 150 x 40mm), it does not have to be installed visibly in the card table, but as it has a basic emergency operation function, it must be easily accessible.
