IMTRA Colorlight Searchlight Range

IMTRA, a leading manufacturer and importer of quality marine products, has announced the addition of Colorlight high-output searchlights to its product range. Offering unlimited horizontal and vertical movement, the Colorlight searchlights feature a dual-light head platform. Operators have the flexibility to choose dual-light beam models that allow half or full power with built-in redundancy in case of bulb outages; or models with two different light spectra technologies within the same fixture for maximum flexibility. IMTRA will distribute, service and support the entire range of Colorlight spots and searchlights throughout North America for both marine and non-marine industrial applications.

Colorlight searchlights feature paired light housings that can be fitted with a number of different lighting technologies, a key differentiating feature of the brand. For maximum brightness, range and “daylight” color temperature, efficient and exceptionally bright HMI (hydrargyrum medium-arc iodide) lamps are available. For moderate range applications, the Colorlight digital LED models feature very low power consumption and 50,000-hour lamp life. Low-frequency UVA (ultraviolet) “black light” lamps have proven extremely effective in poor visibility conditions. The popular UV lamps can be operated alone or in combination with other lamps within the same-paired unit.

Designed specifically to endure a harsh marine environment, each light fixture can be controlled independently or in unison, manually or via a preset program. In addition, for applications that require heat signature imaging, Colorlight searchlights can be factory-configured to include a thermal imaging camera installed between the two light housings, maximizing equipment utilization while conserving space on the bridge roof.

Cost efficient to install, operate and maintain, Colorlight searchlights feature sealed gears and brushless servo motors that do not require planned maintenance for the first 10 years of operation barring occasional bulb replacement. Active system monitoring provides real-time feedback on condition of the motor and bulbs. Fully networkable, a combination of up to 16 Colorlight searchlights and control panels can be networked together over Ethernet. An open protocol CAN-bus design allows seamless communications with today’s modern navigation systems. Colorlight searchlights feature coated parabolic reflectors that provide over 90% light transmission efficiency, and a beam angle that can be focused steplessly throughout a 3- to 20-degree range. Extremely versatile, the searchlights have unlimited, 100% vertical and horizontal maneuverability, and dual axis stepless speed control of 0 to up to 33 degrees per second. The IP66 acid-proof stainless steel housing can be mounted upright or hanging upside down. Automatic control options include sweep, surveillance, fixed-position and network synchronization. Colorlight searchlights are backed by a two-year limited warranty.

Colorlight marine searchlights are currently available for sale through approved marine retailers, shipyards and marine retrofitters throughout the United States and Canada, as well as online at For more information on Colorlight marine searchlights, IMTRA’s complete line of lighting products, IMTRA or its entire product line, please contact 508-995-7000 or visit
