The design of IMAX Searchlights is based on many years of experience and extensive research in the field of professional Marine lighting. Carefully selected materials are used to ensure maximum performance, low maintenance and a long troublefree life. The perfect combination of mirror/reflector and lightsource is determined through advanced computermodels. Instead of aluminium reflectors, often used in conventional searchlights, IMAX uses brilliant mirror/reflectors, heat resistant, made of superclear glass to achieve the maximum reflectivity of 92%!!

A clever ringfilter prevents glare and straylight. Every part of the IMAX Searchlight is of course protected against the environ- mental circumstances at sea. IMAX mirror/reflectors maintain their superior brilliance during many years. The IMAX Marine type pan and tilt unit has the following features: SS-shafting, strong gears, sealing to IP66. The reinforced housing is protected by a heavy layer of powder coating. The controlpanel containing the 8-position joystick is designed for flushfitting in the ship's bridge console.
