SM-2 Marker Lights

SM-2 Marker Lights

The SM-2 has been disontinued and replaced with the new SM-3 Buoy Marker Light (USCG/MED Approved).

The SM-2 is a high-intensity Xenon strobe which gives 360° visibility for more than 3 miles (4.8 km). This marker light automatically activates and begins strobing when in the water, working for up to 60 hours on a 6-volt lantern battery. Perfect for commercial marine, petrol-marine, cruisers, and any other application needing a reliable Crew Overboard Marker (COB) light, the SM-2 floats upright in all conditions, ensuring it will keep shining when you need it the most.

A Matter of Balance
Marker lights, by design, need to float upright for maximum visibility. The 6-volt lantern batteries provide the ballast for these lights. Although batteries may be the same size, the different chemistries cause them to have varying weights. It is imperative that only the 6-volt battery models suggested are used. Too little ballast and the light will lie over on its side and be ineffective; too much weight and the light may sink. If there are any doubts as to the appropriate weight of the battery, test the light by placing it in shallow water. If it floats upright, it is good, however, if the SM-2 sinks, the battery is too heavy.
