This pedestal-mounted fixture replaces a 2-wire anchor light with our proprietary tri-mode LED, which allows you to switch between a dusk-to-dawn photocell anchor light, a tri-color, and a high intensity SOS strobe. Circuitry-based operation allows for plug and play compatibility with your existing switch without having to run extra wires.
An optional built-in dusk to dawn photocell turns the anchor light on and off to conserve power (active only in anchor light mode). Please note that due to this fixture being sealed, this option must be pre-selected at time of order.
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.
Tri-colors are mounted at the masthead and used for enhanced safety by greatly enhancing visibility of your boat when sailing offshore at night. They have Red and Green (port and starboard) 112.5° sectors facing forward, on the boat's 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.
