External photocells

Orga’s explosion proof photocell provides automatic control of the marine lights, aeronautical obstruction lights and the helideck lights at dawn and dusk, when used in conjunction with the Navaids Central Control Panel (NCCP). The photocell measures the outdoor light level and relays this information to the NCCP, which subsequently controls the activation and deactivation of lighting fixtures at dusk and at dawn respectively. Orga’s explosion proof photocell is one of our cutting-edge marine aids to navigation systems.

Why do you need an explosion proof photocell?

Essentially a peripheral device, the photocell is mainly needed for security purposes. The adequate marking of man-made offshore platforms is vital to ensure the safety of navigation and to protect the structure and its personnel. By determining the level of available light, the photocell will ensure that your platform or rig will be automatically illuminated and visible to shipping at dusk, at night or during periods of poor visibility. Thanks to the control provided by the photocell, the average life of the light source will be extended and power savings will be being made.
