Along with being a self-stabilising, intelligent searchlight, Searchmaster accesses your AIS, radar, GPS and compass to create a night search and rescue or work system.
While your Searchmaster acts as a normal searchlight and work light, it’s when conditions are tough or things go wrong that it comes into its own.
The searchlight beam remains stable, no matter the pitch and roll of your vessel, up to plus or minus 40 degrees.
If you lock it on a target, whether manually or from your radar, it will track it no matter how much you turn, pitch or roll.
When you get close to your target, the beam automatically widens.
The LED light source can be dimmed or brightened and the beam width can be adjusted to suit your conditions.
You can set it in autoscan mode so that it covers an arc (40º, 90º or 180º) at a preset distance. It’s like having an extra hand in the wheelhouse.
If a Search and Rescue Transponder (SART) is activated within it’s range, the screen will flash a visual warning and the searchlight will turn on and automatically track the target. This works both for vessel based and personal AIS beacons.
The Searchmaster system is easy to learn and intuitive to use.
