SL-125 Series 5-9NM+ LED Marine Lantern
Introduction
Congratulations! By choosing to purchase a Sealite lantern you have become the owner of
one of the most advanced LED marine lanterns in the world.
Sealite Pty Ltd has been manufacturing lanterns for over 25 years, and particular care has been taken to
ensure your lantern gives years of service.
As a commitment to producing the highest quality products for our customers, Sealite has been independently
certified as complying with the requirements of ISO9001:2008 quality management system.
Sealite lanterns comply with requirements of the US Coast Guard in 33 CFR part 66 for Private Aids To
Navigation.
By taking a few moments to browse through this booklet, you will become familiar with the versatility of your
lantern, and be able to maximise its operating function.
Operating Principle
The solar module of the lantern converts sunlight to an electrical current that is used to charge the battery (SL125-C models only). 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
Sealite is the world’s fastest growing manufacturer of marine aids to navigation. We
employ leading mechanical, optical, hardware & software engineers to create innovative
products to service the needs of our customers worldwide, and offer the widest range of
solar-powered LED lanterns in the marketplace.
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.
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 & superior quality. Optical Performance
Sealite manufactures a range of marine LED lenses moulded from multi-cavity dies. Complex shapes such as
the SL70, BargeSafe™ and 16-segment multi-focus lenses 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.

SL-125 Series 5-9NM+ LED Marine Lantern
SL-125 & SL-125-C Models
The SL-125 5-9NM+ light fixture is the most advanced LED marine lantern on the market.
Utilising the latest software and micro circuitry developments, the lantern boasts a huge
number of features including flash-memory and the most efficient power conversion available.
This maintenance-free model is also available with up to 4 tiers of 36 LEDs to increase the light
intensity for a range of different light colours (see Specifications table below). Each LED tier
utilises the Sealite omnidirectional LED Reflector (US Pat. No. 6,667,582. AU Pat. No. 778, 918)
to increase the intensity and uniformity of the horizontal output. In particular, the SL-125 4-tier
model utilises a unique heat-dissipating domed lens to achieve maximum LED intensity output
over a wider range of environmental conditions.
The SL-125-C Complete Lantern Assembly provides a complete solution for visual navigation
requirements incorporating solar modules and battery to power the light.
Remote monitoring and control capabilities are also available for the SL-125, allowing the
performance of the units to be monitored from remote sites. System status includes battery
condition, flash characters, operational configuration, and lantern/buoy position.
The SL-125 may also be fitted with Comm-Sync. The Sealite Comm-Sync range of lanterns
utilises an internal RF module that operates on a 2.4Ghz frequency and has an operational
range of up to 1.4km between 2 lights. Should more than two lights be required to be
synchronised the range may be extended for longer distances as the lanterns transmit data to
the adjacent lantern, causing it to fall in to synchronisation. The only limitation is no lantern
should be more than 1.4km from the next lantern in series.

SL-125 Series 5-9NM+ LED Marine Lantern
Optional Configurations
RF Synchronisation (SL-125-CS)
The SL-125 may be fitted with optional comm sync RF module for short range flash synchronisation ideal for marina entrances and aquaculture applications.
GPS Synchronisation (SL-125-GPS)
For flash synchronisation of lanterns installed over longer ranges, a GPS module may be fitted.
When lanterns flash in synchronisation they can be clearly distinguished from other navaids and
confusing background lighting - ideal for rivers and channel marking.
GSM Monitoring & Control (SL-125-GSM) and AIS Integration (SL-125-AIS)
The SL-125 lantern series may also be fitted with GSM remote monitoring and control capabilities enabling users to access real-time diagnostics data and change lantern settings via cell-phone.
AIS integration enables remote monitoring of the SL-125 lantern as well as crucial Message 21
information to be broadcast to mariners within the region.
Radio Control (SL-125-RC)
Radio control may be fitted to SL-125 series products enabling users to remotely modify the setup of
their lantern via handheld radio controller (SL-RC-2.4).
For example, the operator can remotely change between different coloured LED banks (to change the
colour of the light), turn their lights ON and OFF, or change the flash setting. Perfect for remote traffic
control and to designate an area of activity.

SL-125 Series 5-9NM+ LED Marine Lantern
Selecting an Intensity/Power Setting
Intensity/power settings on Sealite lanterns operate via DIP switches, located near the rotary switches on
the flasher unit. The intensity/power settings may be used to reduce the power consumption and intensity
of the lantern. Setting the lantern to 25% intensity will reduce the power consumption to 25% of the normal
100% setting and the range by 20% - 40% depending on the maximum intensity. Refer to Sealite power
calculator to confirm reduced range. This setting may be used to adjust the current draw of the light to
local sunlight conditions. The following diagrams indicate intensity/power settings:- ON

RF Synchronisation (Comm-Sync) Option
Sealite’s innovative RF Synchronisation System is designed to offer a low-cost short range flash
synchronisation option for applications including rivers, estuaries, marina entrances, channel marking
and aquaculture.
RF Synchronisation may be fitted to the SL-125 range of lanterns and benefits vessel operators
at night by illuminating the boundary or channel as a clear passage on entrance, as opposed to
indiscriminant flashing lights which may render the judgment of distance difficult.
Operating Principle
RF Comm-Sync products are fitted with an internal RF module, which operates on a 2.4GHz
frequency and has an operational range of 1.4km between 2 lights.
Should more than 2 lanterns be required to be synchronised the range may be extended for longer
distances as each lantern transmits the data to all adjacent lanterns - causing them to fall into
synchronisation. The only limitation is that no lantern should be more than 1.4km from the next lantern
in the series.
RF Comm-Sync lanterns operate within a peer-to-peer network topology and therefore are not
dependent upon master/slave relationships. This means that lights remain synchronised without use of
master/slave configurations and each lantern in the network shares both the roles of master and slave.
Using innovative software, the additional power consumption is minimal, and in most configurations
the solar lantern requires only 1.5hrs of direct sunlight per day to retain full working autonomy.
Synchronisation is recommended for lanterns operating with up to 20% duty cycles and in
regions where typical solar irradiation averages 1.5Kwh per day. Flash characters exceeding
this may require lantern intensity adjustment.
Synchronisation is achieved via short-range RF communication between lanterns, and relies
on line-of-sight operation.
Setup
To enable flash synchronisation of independent RF Comm-Sync lanterns, set lanterns to the same
flash characteristic (see “Selecting a Flash Code” section of this manual).
IMPORTANT: only lights set to the exact same flash pattern/code will flash in synchronisation.

GPS Synchronisation Option
This GPS option can be added to any of the SL-125 series lanterns previously outlined, and provides
the user with the ability to install independently operating lanterns that all flash in synchronisation.
No additional power supplies, aerials or control systems are required, and with its microprocessorbased system, the GPS option is specifically designed to provide maximum reliability and performance
over a wide range of environmental conditions.
Operating Principle
Each light operates independently and requires no operator intervention. A minimum of 4 satellites
need to be in view for the built-in GPS receiver to collect time data. At dusk, the light sensor will turn
the light on. If time data is available the light will come on synchronised to every other light with the
same selected flash code.
Synchronisation is achieved using an internal algorithm based on the highly accurate time base and
time data received from the satellites. The satellite data is provided from a number of earth stations
using atomic clocks as the time base. Continuous self-checking ensures that the light will continue to
run in synchronisation.
Light Activation
At power-up the microprocessor checks that the internal GPS module is programmed correctly and is
able to provide valid time base and time data.
Once outside with a clear view of the sky, valid data should become available within 20 minutes.
Daylight Operation
During daylight hours the microprocessor is in idle mode to reduce power consumption. Time data
continues to be updated once per second. The microprocessor will automatically exit the idle mode as
soon as dark conditions are detected.
Dark Operation
When dark conditions are detected the light:
•
Checks for valid time data and is turned on after a delay based on the current time and the length
of the selected flash code;
•
If valid time data is not detected the light will turn on after approximately 10 seconds. This light will
not be synchronised.
•
If the light turns on unsynchronised it will continually check for valid time data. Once valid data is
found the light will automatically synchronise.
Note: Lights will not synchronise if different flash codes are selected.

Lantern Status
Two status LED’s on the main printed circuit board (position A in image below) provide the operator
with an indication of the lantern status.
There is one red and one yellow status LED. The red status LED is used to indicate the health of the
lantern’s power system. The yellow status LED is used to indicate the operational status of the lantern.
These indicator LED’s can be viewed at the base of the lens. Separate indicator LEDs are located on
the top of the GPS circuit board (where fitted- see position B & C of figure 3.1.).

Morse code ( ) contains letter
For example, VQ (6) + LFL 10 S means 6 very quick flashes followed by a long flash, during a
10-second 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.

SL-125 Series 5-9NM+ LED Marine Lantern
Maintenance and Servicing
Designed to be virtually maintenance-free, the SL-125, SL-125-C, & SL-125-GPS require minimal
attention, though the following maintenance and servicing information is provided to help ensure the
life of your Sealite product.
1. Cleaning Lens- occasional cleaning of the light lens may be required. Using a cloth and warm
soapy water, wipe off any foreign matter before rinsing the lens with fresh water.
2. 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 (SL125-C models only).
3. 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 (SL-125-C models only).
Replacing the Battery
The SL-125-C lanterns have a sealed battery compartment, which provides the user with the ability to
change the battery after years of operation.
1. Remove the bolt/lock securing the battery box lid, and open unit.
2. Inside the battery box is an internal battery container. To access the battery, remove the four
screws and lid of this internal container.
3. Remove old battery from container and disconnect all connecting wires. Discard battery in a safe
manner.
4. Connect the “Battery Negative (-)” wire to the negative terminal of the new battery, and the “Battery
Positive (+)” wire to the positive terminal of the new battery.
5. Connect the “Battery Positive (+)” and “Battery Negative (-)” wires from the Solar Regulator to the
battery.
6. Replace the internal battery container lid and screws making sure no wires are protruding.
7. Close the battery box lid and secure with bolt/lock. Light is now activated.
8. To test place dark cover (towel or jacket) on top of light to activate sensor, light will come on within
one minute.
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.

SL-125 Series 5-9NM+ LED Marine Lantern
Trouble Shooting
Problem
Remedy
Lantern will not activate.
•
•
•
•
•
Timing codes will not change.
• Turn rotary switches several times to ensure contacts are clear.
Lantern will not operate for the
entire night.
• 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.
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.
