RCL-100 LED Searchlightearchlight (12 to 24V) with Remote Control Options
Model Number: RCL-100 LED / Part Number 1950/1951
The LED version of our most popular RCL-100D searchlight provides high intensity
LED performance that pierces through night and low lighting conditions with a
blazing 220,000 candela. The RCL-100 LED’s traditionally sleek design makes it
an attractive and cost effective choice for sport yachts, mega-yachts, sport
fishers as well as light commercial vessels. With more efficient LEDs, the
RCL-100 LED now has reduced power consumption demand by up to 50% on 12V
The RCL-100 LED
continues to utilize the same rugged design as the original RCL-100, but
incorporates a new efficient 9 LED array that produces over 220,000 candela of
light. The die cast aluminum housing and glass lens are sealed against the
elements for years of trouble-free operation. Other features include a wired
remote control operation that allows users to rotate the light 360 degrees
continuously at either a fast or slow speed without the hassle of a hard stop.
With a 7 degree beam angle, the light also provides elevation angles at 9
degrees up and 17 degrees down to make lighting draw bridges, buoys and docks a
searchlights are created equal. The die cast aluminum case is triple-primed and
painted with UV stabilizer to withstand years of exposure in the harsh marine
environment. The light’s internal elevation mechanisms are fully enclosed and
provide precise pitch control of the beam while staying protected. The LED
bulbs are efficiently designed to provide over 40,000 operating hours. The
light also includes our Exclusive XRCiZ™ feature that is pre-programmed and
allows for the light to independently rotate every 30 days from activation to
ensure all bearing surfaces are free of corrosion and all electrical contacts
functional. The RCL-100 LED is weather resistant and operates with 12 or 24 DC
The new ACR RCL-100 LED light is sold in a
convenient kit configured as follows.

LED version of the RCL-100?
The URC-102 Master Controller (RCL-100D) has a slow turn on voltage for the
halogen bulbs which the LEDs do not need. The voltage for the halogen bulbs,
after switch on, is continuously regulated, which induces noise in the LED
