The MCN-1 Aids to Navigation Monitor is Tideland’s unique approach to create a multi-purpose remote monitor and control device to suit most NavAid installations using a simple small screwdriver.


Designed to satisfy the majority of customer needs and requires no computers or programmers. No technical experience of Tideland products are required to setup most installations, furthermore Tideland lantern types are automatically detected during power-up making installation a quick and easy task.


The MCN-1 product is an advanced replacement for existing Tideland NA-1 units, yet flexible enough to monitor NavAids used on offshore platforms, lighthouses and buoys.
