The Nova-65 features unique and proprietary optics which provide a 360° beam at 5°, 10°, 20° or 30° vertical divergence. Utilizing a highly efficient compact lens, the Nova-65 is a one of a kind, small, lightweight marine beacon.
The 10° divergence lens is ideal for fixed or floating aids to navigation while the 20° and 30° lenses provide exceptional performance on buoys.
The 5° lens can be used to meet specific needs that require a much longer range while still using a minimal amount of power.
The 20° and 30° options are ideal for use on tension-leg and spar platforms.
New for 2012 is the Nova-65 HI. This has been specifically designed to provide over 10Nm range with a vertical divergence of 3 degrees. It is available in white only.
Two options of housing are available: standard general marine use and a ruggedized metal version. Both are designed to withstand the harsh marine environment including: ice buildup in extremes of latitude and the high temperatures experienced along the equitorial plane.
IP-66 and IP-68 make Nova-65 the choice of professionals.
