says its XR series Xenon Searchlights
and Solar-Ray Searchlights, designed to meet the needs of workboats, emergency vessels and military
craft that operate in rough conditions, offer superior light output and
lamps in Perko's XR series are designed to produce an extremely far-reaching,
narrow beam of intensely bright white light. The 15-inch short arc Xenon XR operates
continuously at 500W to produce 35 million candlepower over 3 nautical miles. The
19-inch XR operates at 1,600W to provide over 100 million candlepower up to 5.5
aluminum housing, yoke and base, the lights are completely sealed and
waterproof. Timkin ball bearings allow for frictionless 380° rotation. Integrally
cast cooling fans prevent bulb overheating and an optional heater system is
available when operating in icy conditions.
control devices are available. The
remote electric panel features a joystick control with a variable speed
function for both horizontal and vertical positioning. Other options include a lever/gear and
distant electric control.
convenience, all XR series components are available as spare parts, the
Miami-based manufacturer of marine lights, hardware and other accessories says.
To inexpensively upgrade or repair an older unit in the field, power supplies
can be traded in for credit on factory-rebuilt units. Ordering information is
in the operator's manual.
Solar-Ray Searchlight is made to take a beating with a reinforced aluminum body,
heavy-duty castings and shock-resistant reflector. For added strength, the
ribbed yoke mounting is fixed to an extra-large cast aluminum base. The white
Perko-Kote finish resists chipping and scratches, Perko says, and may be
painted to match a vessel's color.
A choice of
traditional incandescent or brighter quartz-halogen bulbs run on 32V, 120V or
230V. Light output ranges from 500-2,000W, producing 2 to 5.8 million candlepower. Light is projected up to 2 nautical miles.
light output is achieved with halo deflectors and parabolic glass mirror reflectors.
The housing is vented to prolong bulb life, Perko says, and quick-release
mechanisms on the door allows for easy bulb replacement.
A variety of
bases and controls are available, including deck, wheel, distant electric and
lever/gear. The base has floating stops for 400-degree rotation.
