Forward Congratulations and thank you for purchasing the ACR SM-2 Automatic Crew-Overboard Light. The combination of superior design, high quality raw materials and quality controlled manufacturing produces a product that will perform for years to come. The Test Facility at ACR can reproduce some of the harshest environmental conditions known to man.
SECTION 1 - CHARACTERISTICS GENERAL This section describes operating instructions and operational characteristics of the SM-2 Automatic Crew-overboard light. The information presented herewith is in conformance with U.S. Coast Guard Specification 46 CFR 161.010 and 161.110. The SM-2 is a lightweight, compact, battery operated, portable unit which uses modular construction for basic circuits to simplify maintenance and replacement procedures.
CONSTRUCTION The SM-2 Light essentially consists of a case with a battery, switch, electric circuit, flashlamp, globe, lanyard attachment flange, a mounting bracket, and a buoyant, non-absorbent unicellular polyfoam, used as filler material. LANYARD The size, weight, and shape of the light are suitable for conveniently throwing overboard, while attached to a life ring buoy by means of a lanyard.
1.14 STROBOSCOPIC FLASHING LIGHT The SM-2 Flashing Light uses a capacitor discharge xenon flashtube and meets the following requirements. A. A completely sealed solid state circuit converts power from the battery and supplies it to the flashtube. B. A suitable capacitor discharge, xenon flashtube is provided which is compatible with the electronic flashing circuit and lens which will provide the required light output.
SECTION 2 - INSTALLATION INSTALLATION PROCEDURES The installation procedure requires that the mounting bracket be securely fastened in any convenient location which would provide immediate access in the event of emergency situations. Suitable length ¼ - 20 stainless screws should be used for mounting the bracket. Screw heads should not protrude inside the bracket surface.
3. Inspect O-Ring seal for proper fit. Lubricate with silicone grease. F. Replace the battery by securing the two terminals to the battery posts. Assure tightness. NOTE: Connect black lead to center (-) post of battery. Connect red lead to outer (+) post of battery. G.
