RCL-100 LED Searchlight

RCL-100 LED Searchlight


The LED version of our most popular RCL-100D searchlight provides high intensity LED performance that pierces through nights and low lighting conditions with a blazing 220,000 candela. The RCL-100 LED’s traditionally sleek design makes it an attractive and cost-effective choice for sport yachts, mega-yachts, sport fishers, and light commercial vessels. With more efficient LEDs, the RCL-100 LED has reduced power consumption demand by up to 50% on 12V vessels.

Owners of the RCL-100 LED searchlight and the older halogen RCL-100D searchlight have the option to purchase the Wifi Remote Control Module which provides the flexibility of controlling your RCL-100 LED and RCL-100D using the free ACR Searchlight App. The Privacy Policy for the ACR Searchlight App can be accessed via this link.

Note: The ACR Searchlight app is available for iOS and Android. See “Description” tab below for instructions on installing the app on your mobile device.

The RCL-100 LED searchlight continues to utilize the same rugged design as the original RCL-100D, but incorporates a new efficient 9 LED array that produces over 220,000 candelas of light. The strong and light aluminum housing along with glass lens are weather-sealed for years of trouble-free operation.  Other features include a wired remote that allows continuous 360 degrees of rotation at fast or slow speed without the hassle of a hard stop.  With a 7-degree beam angle, the light also provides elevation angles at 9 degrees up and 17 degrees down to make lighting draw bridges, buoys, and docks a breeze.

Not all searchlights are created equal and the body is triple-primed and painted with UV stabilizer to survive years in the harsh marine environment.  The RCL-100 LED searchlight internals a fully enclosed and provide precise pitch control of the beam while staying protected. The efficiently designed LED array provide over 40,000 hours.  The light also includes our Exclusive XRCiZ™ feature, independently rotating every 30 days from activation to ensure all bearing surfaces are free of corrosion and all electrical contacts functional.  The RCL-100 LED is weather-resistant and operates with 12 or 24 DC power.

How can I obtain a replacement bulb for my ACR searchlight?

Usually, you can purchase the bulb from your local ACR dealer. If your dealer is not able to supply the bulb, you can always obtain it from ACR by emailing service@acrelectronics.com or using our Contact Us Form.


Can I switch my RCL-100D light unit with the new LED Version?

Yes, but you will also need to replace your existing master controller with a new URC-103, which is included in P/N 1951.


Why do I need a new Master Controller if I am just switching to the LED version of the RCL-100?

The URC-102 Master Controller (RCL-100D) has a slow turn-on voltage for the halogen bulbs which the LEDs do not need. The voltage for the halogen bulbs, after switch on, is continuously regulated, which induces noise in the LED powerhead.


Is there any wiring difference between the ‘old’ and new RCL 100/LED?

The same coax cable, point pad and wire harness colors are used.


Is the RCL-100 LED light compatible with 12V or 24V systems?

It is compatible with both 12 and 24 V.


How long will the LED lights last on the RCL-100 LED?

The LED’s are rated to last over 40,000 hours each.


If one LED bulb fails, can it be repaired?

The complete LED Power Head Assembly must be replaced.


Can the URC 103 controller for the LED version be used on the RCL 100D halogen unit?

This controller will blow the halogen bulbs at switch on.


Can I find a troubleshooting guide for the RCL-100 LED?

Yes, please review the manual. (In the Downloads Section below)


What is the maximum current (Amp) that the light needs to be supplied with?

The light uses a maximum of 3.5 Amp and has a 5 amp fuse installed.
