Racon Light #4657

Current stock: 0

This amazing piece is a RACON light. The name is an acronym for RAdar  beaCON. 

Racons are receiver/transmitter devices operating in the maritime radar frequency bands, that enhance the detection and identification of certain radar targets. A Racon responds to the presence of a ship’s radar by sending a characteristic pulse train.

They are often used to marl lighthouses, oil platforms, or coral reefs. 

A really unusual find, it would make an amazing feature piece, or have it wired by a qualified electrician to create a light feature with a nautical look. 

We have another available, and they would look spectacular as a pair. 

Measures approx: 78cm x 33cm  (tube 22cm diameter)
