The Automatic Floating Strobe Light from ACR Electronics automatically rights itself when overboard and activates when in the water with the reliable gravity switch.

Provides a minimum of 3 candela of light with its 360° high-intensity Xenon strobe light and can be seen 3 miles away. The UV-stable PVC housing is waterproof and watertight. This light uses a 6V screw-terminal battery (sold separately, Model 4482451) to deliver a 60-hour signal giving an overboard crewmember a chance of being rescued. Includes bulkhead bracket mount and is USCG approved and SOLAS compliant.
