These navigation light panel assemblies control and monitor up to 6 marine navigation lights.

Navigation lights can be 12 VDC (5, 10 or 25 watts) or 24 VDC (10 or 25 watts).

 

Each panel assembly includes:

.

 

The QuickTime movie at the left shows a representative motoring situation, in which the port sidelight navigation light bulb has burned out.

You may have to click once or twice on the movie to initiate flashing.

 

 

Panel assemblies are fully prewired, ready for external connections to battery and navigation lights.

A separate negative return must be provided for each navigation light.
(except Panels NLI136 NLI136S, in which tricolor & anchor light negative returns connect to same current sensor)

Instructions with wiring diagram are included.

.

 

Later introduced panels NLI135S & NLI136S include a second toggle switch (2-position). This switch allows selection of either tricolor (better visibility at sea) or lower sailing lights (better visibility in close quarters with other craft), only when SAIL is selected. Separation of circuits is accomplished by poles on the switches, without the need for diodes.

The NLI136S panel slideshow at the left indicates navigation light status at the various switch positions.

NOTE 1: ON PANELS NLI136 & NLI136S, TRICOLOR & ANCHOR LIGHTS SHARE A CURRENT SENSOR, WHICH ACCOMODATES A COMMON NEGATIVE RETURN. THIS FEATURE IS ALSO AVAILABLE ON PANELS NLI135 & NLI135S, UPON REQUEST. PLEASE E-MAIL FOR DETAILS.

Panels can accommodate common negative return wiring, provided those navigation lights are never on at the same time. Current sensors will work with LED navigation lights that draw at least 250 milliamps. Panels can also be configured (and priced) without one or more current sensors. Please address questions to: lschaffer@jps.net

As an alternative to these panels, you may wish to configure a standard circuit breaker panel using our navlight INDICATORS and CURRENT SENSORS .
