NavAid Ex Control Panel


Fully in compliance with the IALA Recommendation O-139 on the Marking of Man-Made Offshore Structures, IMT has designed its SigMare Marine Navigation Aid system.

As goes for all IMT products, our NavAid control panels are designed to increase safety while requiring an absolute minimum of maintenance. The smart electronics are in constant communication with the Marine lanterns (even when they are on stand-by), monitoring the health of the system. This eliminates the need to regularly test the system’s operation, allowing the crew to focus on their core business.

The Ex version is ATEX certified and suitable for installation in Hazardous areas, both zone 1 and 2. The control panel is made off a high (marine) grade aluminium, which is lightweight and corrosion resistant. The high IP (Ingress Protection) value ensures the components are protected against the elements.

Depending on the project requirements, it could control ILED Dorado 10/15NM lantern(s) as well as ILED Lyra 3/5NM lantern(s). Amongst others, options are the use of a 2(+0,5)NM Fog horn and Visibility detector.

The SigMare Marine Navigation aid system comes with a designated 96 hours UPS system, which again can optionally be fed through Solar and/or Wind power technology.

The use of advanced electronics also allows remote control and the complete system status to be made available in a central control room, or even onshore if required.
