All of the Coast Guard lighted navigational aids are lit if there are 56 or less. If a chart has more than 56 lit navigation aids represented, 56 are chosen to form an even balance of flash patterns and colors across the chart.
A custom designed microprocessor (enclosed within the framed chart) sends specific light patterns to designated LED’s via soldered wires. The DC powered microprocessor is run by transformed AC 110 (household) power. Battery power is not an option at this time.
Yes. All charts have a discreet On/Off switch located on the lower outside portion of the right side of the frame. The power cord exits from the back of the chart. This allows for the chart to be hung over a built in wall outlet to effectively hide the cord. The option to have the switch located anywhere else on the frame is available.
LED’s (light emitting diodes) are good for 85,000 plus hours per the manufacturer. They will be good for 10 years of continuous use and more. Many customers opt to keep their charts on 24/7.
All frames are expertly handcrafted by a custom furniture artisan using handpicked, solid Mahogany, Cherry or Walnut wood with clear Minwax coating. Also, frames can be painted black or white (smooth or grained), stained using Cabot stains or handcrafted as gold antiqued.
