The Nova-65 features unique and proprietary optics which provide a 360° beam at 3°, 5°, 10°, 20° or 30° vertical divergence.
Utilizing a highly efficient compact lens, the Nova-65 is a one of a kind, small, lightweight marine beacon. The 10° divergence lens is ideal for fixed or floating aids to navigation while the 20° and 30° lenses provide exceptional performance on buoys. The 5° lens can be used to meet specific needs that require a much longer range while still using a minimal amount of power. The 20° and 30° options are ideal for use on tension-leg and spar platforms.
In 2012, the Nova-65 HI was specifically designed to provide over 10NM range with a vertical divergence of 3°. It is available in white only.
Two options of housing are available for general marine use (GMU): polycarbonate and a ruggedised metal version. For NEC Class 1 Division 2, housing is only available in polycarbonate. For ATEX/IECEx (Category 3), housing is available in ruggedised metal only and with a 10° lens. Both housing options are designed to withstand the harsh marine environment including: ice buildup in extremes of latitude and the high temperatures experienced along the equatorial plane.
