We regret to inform you that this product is DISCONTINUED; please find our current products here

E602 is a set of equipment units enclosed into a stainless steel cabinet, performing all functions
needed for the automated control of a high power lighthouse and for communication with
the remote monitoring and control centre. The set consists of main system for the control
of lanterns up to 1000W power and of reserve (secondary) system E601 for the control of reserve
lantern up to 100W power. The actual configuration of  the system is to be specified by the customer.
It is designed for the long-term operation in field conditions.
  • Flashing control of the main and reserve lanterns and control of the lampchanger
  • Data exchange with the remote monitoring and control centre 
  • Daylight control of the flashing and immediate sending of the ON/OFF switching times to the monitoring and control centre and to the VTS 
  • Synchronisation of flashing by the GPS signals with a given time delay
  • Sending timing signals to the internal units, connected by the local area network
  • Internal diagnostics of the system components and testing of the power supply voltages, and sending warning or emergency messages to the monitoring and control centre, if necessary

  • Automatic switching over from the main system to the reserve system E601 in case of failures
  • Control of power supply units and optimal charging of batteries
  • Analysing of the state of 220V mains and giving warning messages to the remote monitoring and control centre when the voltage is less than 150V or greater than 270V
  • Automatic switching over to the accumulator batteries and, if needed, to the reserve Diesel-Generator Station E179 in case of failure of mains supply
  • Remote setting up of the system from the monitoring and control centre
