Wiska MagikNUT, quick and easy solution for EMC problems!

The use of polyamide cable glands in electrical installations is constantly increasing. Metal cable glands are currently used in the field of EMC solutions. With the new polyamide EMC locknut Wiska now offers an alternative for a polyamide EMC solution. The MagikNUT can be combined with all types of entries with a metric thread and offering much more flexibility for installers. At the same time, it provides high EMC protection and quick and easy installation.

The MagikNUT has a unique design. It has a polyamide outer body and a built-in stainless-steel clip mechanism for EMC shield connections. Due to the use of polyamide, the MagikNUT has a light weight design. Available in black and grey the MagikNUT comes in three sizes (M16, M20 and M25). 

How does it work?
When the locknut is tightened, the stainless-steel clip cuts into powder coating of the housing (or switchboard) ensuring the perfect contact. The claws of the stainless-steel clip provide the necessary contact to the shield. The EMC shield protection is now closed and a continuous contact from the shield to the housing is ensured.

Be even safer at sea with the new LED blue navigation light!

The new LED blue navigation light from Aqua Signal is based on the Series 60 LED navigation lighting. Navigation lights are all about safety. Glamox has developed Series 60 to make worries about failing lanterns redundant.

Long working life

The series is designed for a working life of 100,000 hours at an ambient temperature of +45°C. That is twice as long as the working life of most of its competitors. To achieve such a long working life, the design must be robust and all components must be of high quality. It consists of a high-quality LED driver and driver technology and the use of materials that can withstand rough weather and changing temperatures, such as seawater-resistant aluminium, polycarbonate and toughened glass. The system working life of the LED light source and driver is 11 years of continuous runtime, 24 hours per day at an ambient temperature of +45°C.

Integrated countdown

You don't want to risk a lantern reaching the end of its life or failing while you are out at sea. That is why the Series 60 is equipped with a countdown system that tells you when it is time to replace the navigation light. In order to protect the system against tampering, the timer is integrated into each lantern, while the message is sent to and displayed on the control panel. The system shows the usage of the lantern, and indicates if it has been exposed to cold temperatures or rough weather, as well as conditions with less wear and tear. The system offers extra safety for the vessel.

Low EMC values

There are strict electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements for lanterns that are installed close to the VHF aerial. These Series 60 lanterns have a low emission level and have been tested and meet the emission and immunity requirements of IEC 60945.

A flexible choice

Series 60 has been designed to work with the Aqua Signal Navigation lighting control panel, but the lamps offer a great deal of flexibility since they can also be controlled by third party panels (1). The products are easy to install, are secured with just four bolts, while the internal junction box leaves plenty of room for the connecting wires. It can be installed upside down.

(1) Compatibility must be confirmed by the control panel supplier.

SOLAS and Wheelmark approved handheld LED searchlight

Bremen is the latest handheld LED searchlight from the maritime lighting brand aqua signal, and has been designed as a luminaire for nearly all kinds of search operations. The energy efficient searchlight provides morse capability for emergency situations at sea. It is certified with the internationally known wheelmark which aims to increase security at sea. The Bremen LED is suitable for life boats and also commercial crafts under SOLAS and MCA regulations. It can be used inside and outside of any vessel. Aqua signal’s searchlight comes with a 5 year warranty.

Application
Handheld search lights are vital tools for night sailing and landing manoeuvres. They can also be used for anti-collision protection when placed on the sails for visibility, and can illuminate odd items in the water or most importantly an overboard crew member. It is mandatory to have a handheld searchlight ready in a cockpit when at sea. A handheld light can fix on someone in the sea while the vessel is pitching and rolling – something which is almost impossible to do with a mounted searchlight.

Maritime requirements
The Bremen LED is designed for use on motor and sailing vessels under extreme environmental conditions. It is used by coastguards and military staff all around the world. The rubber black housing gives it a solid grip, and it is designed with an extended front edge for protecting the lens. The whole housing is impact and shock resistant, non-corrosive and non-magnetic. An ingress protection of IP68 is a requirement when at sea, and it protects the light from dust and is suitable for continuous immersion in water.

The 12 Watt LED module is covered by a clear fresnel lens. As a certified LED searchlight, it is tested for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). It is usable with 12-24 Volts.

Mounting
The Bremen LED is manufactured for hand held use, but a clamp bracket for side mounting and a slip-on bracket for deck mounting is available. This search light requires a waterproof deck plug & socket (or cigarette lighter plug & socket) in order to be installed.

Use of VentGLAND recommended

In order to prevent condensation problems, we recommend using the WISKA VentGLAND. The higher the IP value of a device, the more condensation problems arise, since due to pressure differences (e.g. due to daytime/nighttime temperature differences) inside and outside the device, humid air will penetrate into the device and condense. Using a VentGLAND which compensates these pressure differences resolves this problem.

The VentGLAND can be supplied in brass or plastic and in a range of versions. A VentPlug with the same functionality also forms part of the delivery programme.

LED floodlight for Ex zone 1: FX60 LED

The FX60 floodlight manufactured by Glamox Aqua Signal comes with the most up-to-date LED technology. It is suitable for use in hazardous areas (hazard zones 1 and 2). By comparison with conventional floodlights it needs no maintenance, has a longer service life and it is also more efficient.

As the control units are often the weakest element in LED lighting solutions, we have equipped the new FX60 with an innovative driver technology. This facilitates the optimum system efficiency it promises and makes it possible to operate the floodlight in extreme temperatures ranging from minus 50 degrees to plus 55 degrees Celsius.

Comprehensive tests have moreover demonstrated that the maintenance intervals required for the FX60 – when used on offshore facilities, for example – are at least five times as long as those of conventional floodlights. As floodlights are frequently installed in areas that are difficult to access without scaffolding or the help of industrial climbers, the extended maintenance intervals of the FX60 floodlight will reduce operating costs enormously.
