Hydrosphere offer a variety of self contained navigation lights with ranges of between 2NM-6NM as well as stand alone lights with ranges up to 12NM, which are all suitable for lighting navigation buoys.
For ranges of 5Nm or less then a self-contained solar powered light is often the best option. These programmable LED lights comprising solar panels, battery, battery housing, regulator, electronic controlsand light source in a single compact package are simple to use and easy to maintain.
Simplicity and ease of use are the main advantages of a self-contained light. By definition they do not need a separate power supply installed.
If the range is greater than 5Nm then a stand-alone light with a separate solar power supply will probably be required. The exact range possible and the size of the solar power supply will vary with the flash character.
