This bayonet BA15D lamp is suitable for replacing incandescent light bulbs and other general purpose uses on both power and sailing boats.
This LED double contact bayonet lamp is perfect for replacing bayonet type BA15D (the ones with level bayonet pins) incandescent bulbs used in light fixtures found on many boats. Warm White is recommended for internal use and cool white tends to be better for use in external light fixtures. This lamp is also available in a single contact BA15S base.
Please check your lamp base, this BA15D lamp has level bayonet locating pins. Most navigation lamps including some anchor lights use BAY15D lamps that have offset bayonet location pins.
The lamp has on-board Buck-Boost electronic controls and 18 high output SMD LEDs which combine to give consistent light output over a wide range of input voltage (10-30v DC). These lamps are pretty much unaffected by the daily bumps and knocks expected in a practical marine environment, these lamp keep going where traditional incandescent bulbs often fail prematurely. These lamps are designed to minimise EMI, unlike other similar looking lamps sold for non marine use. We utilise specially designed PCB layouts which avoid tracks acting as antenna that radiate EMI (electromagnetic interference).
Boatlamps recommend using Contralube 770 Gel on all lamp holder contacts and other connections on your boat. This product will protect against contact corrosion which is the most common reason both LED and traditional incandescent lamps flicker or fail.
The light output is UV free and unlike conventional lamps its light output will not fade surfaces, furnishing fabrics and attract less flying insects.
These lamps are not polarity conscious, they are fitted with a diode bridge rectifier and can therefore be connected either way without damage.
