Kahlenberg M-512 Signal Controller

The new Kahlenberg M-512 Sound and Light Signal Controller significantly improve safety by producing automatic sound and light signals required for navigation as specified by IMO COLREGs, SOLAS, and USCG. It supersedes our popular M-511C model with greater functionality plus a user friendly and more compact control panel (upgrade adapter plates available). Producing automated restricted visibility (fog) codes, maneuvering codes, and general emergency alarm codes per IMO and SOLAS requirements, the new M-512 sound and light control can control up to two horns, and/or two Morse signal lights. It can also be configured for use with external alarm systems and sound surveillance systems. The M-512 Signal Controller is one of the several marine signal controllers available from Kahlenberg, and provides extensive functionalities to suit the needs of almost any arrangement combination onboard modern ships, as follows:

  • At-Will and Automatic Control of up to two horns and/or two Morse lights
  • Connects to any additional external push buttons
  • Generates Restricted Visibility Codes (Rule 35) and Maneuvering Codes (Rule 34)
  • Produces SOLAS General Emergency Alarm Code (or passes through GEA from external alarm panels)
  • Mute Connection for External Sound Surveillance Systems
  • Multiple M-512 Units can be connected for multiple onboard locations
  • Illuminated, Dimmable Display and Dimmable RED L.E.D. Indicator Lamps
  • CAN Connection for PC or external switch activation of all functions
  • Replaces previous Model M-511C in D.C. Versions
