With a number of different types of AtoN marine signal on the market it can be difficult deciding where to invest your money – particularly when establishing new ports and fairways or upgrading existing marine lighting solutions. Our latest guide focusses on leading lights, omnidirectional sector lights, and high-precision projector sector lights (PEL lights) and on helping you choose the right solution for your specific application.
There are a number of factors to consider when choosing the best fit, including the size of the port, the width of the fairway, types of vessel served, local geography, and prevailing weather conditions.
It’s probably no surprise to learn that we are frequently approached by customers looking for guidance on what option best meets their needs. Questions we often hear include:
- What type of AtoN signal do I need?
- What are the pros and cons of each type?
- How much power will the solution consume?
- What level of accuracy do I need?
All these questions, and more, are answered in our new paper, “AtoN Signals – A quick guide to equipment selection for fairway managers and port authorities.”
