New to the range, a tough and efficient ice buoy lantern
300 x 300

The NOVA-IB is specifically designed for use on an ice buoy or spar type river buoy. Manufactured from heavy-duty bronze with a strong acrylic lens, the NOVA-IB is highly efficient and naturally completely waterproof. For the occasions when it is pulled under ice or pulled under water from floating debris, Tideland offers a tilting control option that will turn the light off to increase efficiency.

Rated at IP68, The NOVA-IB is available in all IALA colors and has a 10 degree vertical divergence with ranges of up to 7 or 8NM depending upon color of choice. It has a “best in class” performance rating and is up to 50% more efficient than comparable products.

The NOVA-IB has a wide input voltage range of 12V to 30V DC and is compatible with most primary battery packs. Designed with greater efficiency, the NOVA-IB will outlast other products and provide options to select a greater NM range.

Potential debris may cause considerable damage to conventional buoys and lanterns. Trials have shown that using a spar type buoy with a NOVA-IB can limit damage. On most ice buoys, debris builds up against the buoy until it is pushed under, whereby using a spar type buoy with a NOVA-IB, tests have shown the debris floats over and the buoy returns to its normal position.

NOVA-IB can also be programmed with a simple remote control that is also available as an option.
