The choice of GMDSS Vessels Worldwide, the ACR Auto HemiLight™3 flashing survival light attaches to almost any style life jacket to safely meet USCG, MED and SOLAS safety requirements. Smaller than other approved lights, the HemiLight™3 features rounded edges to maintain the integrity of inflatable life jackets. The attachment loop accommodates webbing of up to 5 cm (2") width.
The 5-year non-hazardous Lithium battery and marine tough design ensure years of useful service life. The HemiLight™3 offers a basic strobe mode and the high-intensity flashing LED light automatically activates for 20+ hours (far exceeding SOLAS requirement of 8 hours) when it comes in contact with salt or fresh water. The light is deactivated simply by pushing the red button. Once the sensor is wet and the light is on, the light will stay on even if the sensor is dry, unless manually deactivated. Installation is quick and easy and the HemiLight™3 can be retrofitted to almost any style life jacket in a matter of seconds.
