Operating Principle
The solar module of the lantern converts sunlight to an electrical current that is used to charge the
battery. The battery provides power to operate the lantern at night.
The flasher unit has very low current requirements. A microprocessor drives an array of ultra bright
LED’s through a DC/DC converter, which enables the LED’s to operate within the manufacturer’s
specifications. The battery is protected from over-charging within the circuit to ensure maximum
battery life.
On darkness, the microprocessor will initiate a program check and after approximately 1 minute begin
flashing to the set code.
Technology
Electronics
Sealite employs leading in-house electronic engineers in the design and development of software and
related circuitry. All individual electronic components are sourced directly by Sealite procurement
staff ensuring that only the highest quality components are used in our products.
LED Technology
All marine lanterns use the latest advancements in LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology as a light
source. The major advantage of LED’s over traditional light sources is well established in that they
typically have an operational life in excess of 100,000 hours, resulting in substantial savings to
maintenance and servicing costs.
Moulding Techniques
Sealite’s rotational moulding experience is reflected in the wide range of buoy products offered and
their unique structures designed to increase overall strength and ease of use, including in-moulded
cross bracing and in-mould graphic applications.
Precision Construction
Commitment to investing in the design and construction of injection-moulded parts including optic
lenses, light bases and a range of other components ensures that all Sealite products are of a
consistent and superior quality.
Optical Performance
Sealite manufactures a range of marine LED lenses moulded from multi-cavity dies. Complex shapes
such as the SL70 lens are a testament to the company’s superior in-house lens manufacturing
capabilities and outstanding optical performance.
Award-winning, Patented Technology
Several United States and Australian patent registrations are held on Sealite’s range of innovative
designs, with other regional patents pending in Canada, United Kingdom and Europe.

SLC310 Model
The Sealite SLC310 compact 3nm solar marine lantern is completely self-contained, and specifically
designed for a range of low maintenance applications. The light boasts a large internal battery
compartment, a 20 LED flasher unit, and 4 premium-grade solar modules mounted to collect sunlight
at all angles.
The battery and driving circuitry is conveniently accessed from the top of the lantern assembly –
allowing for easy battery replacement at any stage of the products life.

1. Remove the four socket-head screws on the top lens assembly and open.
2. Adjust the Intensity setting using the DIP switches (detailed below)
3. Adjust the Flash Code with the rotary switches located on the underside of the light head.
4. Adjust the rotary switches (A and B) to desired flash setting (see ‘Selecting a Flash Code’,
below).
5. Connect the 4-pin connector ends together to power up the unit.
6. The unit is now ready for normal operation, once placed in darkness.
7. Close the light head, and replace 4 socket head screws.
8. To test place dark cover (towel or jacket) on top of light to activate sensor, light will come on.
9. Ensure that the unit is bolted to an even, flat surface.
Selecting an Intensity Setting
Pulse settings on Sealite lanterns operate via DIP switches, located near the rotary switches on the
flasher unit. The pulse settings may be used to reduce the power consumption and intensity of the
lantern. Setting the lantern to 25% pulse will reduce the power consumption to 25% of the normal
100% setting and the range by 50%. This setting may be used to adjust to local sunlight conditions.

Selecting a Flash Code- Rotary Switches A and B
All lanterns have 2 rotary switches marked A and B on the flasher unit, as below. Turning the small
arrows to the appropriate number or letter will set the code (see ‘Flash Code’ section, page 8). The
unit may take up to one minute to activate a new flash code. A comprehensive list of available flash
codes is listed on pages 8-14 of this manual.

Maintenance and Servicing
Designed to be almost maintenance-free, the SLC310 requires minimal attention, though the
following maintenance and servicing information is provided to help ensure the life of your Sealite
product.
1. Cleaning Solar Panels- occasional cleaning of the solar panels may be required. Using a cloth
and warm soapy water, wipe off any foreign matter before rinsing the panels with fresh water.
2. Battery Check- inspection of batteries should be performed every three years (minimum) to
ensure that the charger, battery and ancillary electronics are functioning correctly. Using a
voltage meter, check that the battery voltage is at least 12 volts under 100MA load, and ensure
all terminals are clear of foreign matter.
Replacing the battery
The SLC310 has an internal battery compartment which provides the user with the ability to change
the battery after years of operation (see figure 2 on page 5).

Remove the four socket-head screws on the top lens assembly and open.
Disconnect the positive and negative wires from the battery.
Remove battery retaining plate and lift battery from cradle.
Discard old battery in a safe manner.
Reattach positive and negative wires to the new battery.
Replace the battery into the cradle, and re-affix retaining plate with two wing-nuts and washers.
Replace the lens assembly back onto lantern housing ensuring that no wiring is protruding, and
screw four socket cap screws firmly. Ensure the o-ring seal is clean and clear from foreign matter.
8. To test place dark cover (towel or jacket) on top of light to activate sensor, light will come on.
Care must be taken to observe the polarity of each wire before they are connected.
To ensure waterproofing of the unit, make sure that no wires are protruding and that there is
an even seal.
Always discard old batteries in a safe manner.

Flash followed by number eg. FL 1 S, one flash every second
Fixed
Quick flash
Very quick flash
Occulting; greater period on than off
Isophase; equal period on and off
Long flash long
Morse code ( ) contains letter
For example, VQ (6) + LFL 10 S means 6 very quick flashes followed by a long flash, during a 10second interval.
The amount of power your lantern draws through the night depends on the duty cycle, i.e. the amount
of time on as a proportion to the timing cycle. For example, 0.5 seconds on and 4.5 seconds off
equals a 10% duty cycle.
It is best to operate at the lowest duty cycle appropriate to the actual needs of the application.
Please note, Sealite models will retain full autonomy in normal operating conditions with duty-cycles
up to approximately 30%. In applications whereby duty cycles exceed this limit, a reduction in lantern
intensity is recommended. Please contact a Sealite consultant if assistance is required.

Trouble Shooting
Problem
Remedy
Lantern will not activate.
Timing codes will not change.
Lantern will not operate for the
entire night.
• Ensure lantern is in darkness.
• Wait at least 60 seconds for the program to initialise in
darkness.
• Ensure switch setting is on a valid code (not unused flash code).
• Ensure battery terminals are properly connected.
• Ensure battery voltage is above 12volts.
• Turn rotary switches several times to ensure contacts are clear.
• Expose lantern to direct sunlight and monitor operation for
several days. Sealite products typically require 1.5 hours of
direct sunlight per day to retain full autonomy. From a
discharged state, the lantern may require several days of
operational conditions to 'cycle' up to full autonomy.
• Reducing the light output intensity or duty cycle (flash code) will
reduce current draw on the battery.
• Ensure solar module is clean and not covered by shading during
the day.
