The Francis FSP127 signalling lantern fulfils the requirements of the Solas (1997) Regulations, which states that all ships of over 150 tons gross tonnage, when engaged on International voyages, shall have onboard an efficient daylight signalling lamp which shall not be solely dependent upon the ship’s main source of electrical power. The 127mm (5") handheld signalling light can be used on all vessels, for ship to ship signalling using Morse Code. The light is of aluminium, lightweight construction and is fully waterproofed. If desired this unit can be used as a spotlight if the signalling trigger and lamp switch are both left on. The Francis Signalling Lantern is approved by the All Dimensions in Millimeters UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA.)
