We love light.
All kinds of light. Metal halide lamps, LEDs, and especially laser diodes get us going. But all light sources come with unique challenges and opportunities, which we harness in inventive ways like:
Thermal Management: Light energy produces heat, and the heat production process is different for each type of light source. Since excessive heat reduces system life expectancy and can impact other system components, RSL manages heat accordingly, building systems as unique as the light they emit.
Chromaticity: Especially in marine environments, the “color” of the light must meet specific requirements according to international navigation Rules to Prevent Collison at Sea (72 COLREGS). RSL has developed both metal halide and LED light systems that consistently meet this narrow and unique chromaticity range.
Packaging for Durability: When it comes to housing the light unit, RSL has considered various environmental and operational factors including vibration, shock, electromagnetic interference, temperature cycling, and salt spray to design units that are reliable in adverse environments.
