Classic Styling with Modern Features! Photocell Anchor Light > Tri-Color > SOS
Update your current 2-wire all-round anchor light to add the functionality of a Tri-Color and SOS Strobe with no additional wiring. The proprietary Tri-Mode Smart Bulb is the heart of this fixture, which features an integrated micro-processor to switch between Dusk-to-Dawn LED Anchor Light, LED Tri-Color, and SOS Strobe mode all with your existing switch. The video below details operation and allows for increased functionality and visibility. Mounts with (3) screws and internal spade connectors.

Tri-colors are used for enhanced safety by greatly enhancing visibility of your boat when sailing offshore at night. The have Red and Green (port and starboard) 112.5° sectors facing forward, on the boats center-line, and a 135° white sector facing aft. Every offshore cruiser needs one, but many cruisers forgo installing one because of the expensive fixtures and the significant hassle of additional wiring up the mast, extra fuses, switches, and deck glands needed.
Our LED Tri-Mode has all these features in one fixture thanks to its smart LED bulb with an on-board micro-processor. Memory functions allow for the bulb to detect on/off intervals as shown in the product video. Default is the photocell anchor light mode, followed by the Tri-Color mode. The S.O.S. strobe has an additional delay required between switching to prevent inadvertent activation.
A flexible mounting arrangement allows it to be mounted on a pole (1/2" PVC pipe), or on a flat surface using the included spacer, stainless steel screws, and nylock nuts. See pictures.
The two wires going to your existing anchor light are all that is needed. Your anchor light switch will control the modes, so there are no more wires, switches or fuses to add!
This fixture exceeds all of the requirements under COLREG 72 for both All-Around Anchor and Tri-Color use on boats up to 20 Meters.

Connection should be watertight plug with leads. I understand how to switch modes, but not sure how to confirm which of 3 modes is displayed as lamp is on top of mast. That said, I was able to eliminate 3 obsolete navigation lamps and one anchor lamp with this one versatile, highly visible, affordable, low consumption, and hopefully long lasting lamp.
After my big fat Aqua light was taken off the top of the mast by a breaking backstay, I opted for this new LED for the power saving features and the fact I had a broken wire to the mast cap which I was dreading replacing.
As this new light only uses two wires, problem solved.
Contacted support for a question... response within 24 hours.
More than happy with my purchase... I would recommend to anyone wanting a quality product.
I purchased this light for a 1994 Seaward Fox 19 Catboat. Very nice light packed with features. The ability to fine-tune the tri-color light beams once the light is mounted is a great idea. This light is smaller than expected, but works well for smaller sailboats such as mine. Don't let the smaller size be deceiving...this light is bright!
You may want to use angled crimp terminals or solder your wire connections within the light housing. This will keep wires from entering the light path.
Good value and great workmanship!
