USCG Case Study

Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) is a significant concern when it comes to marine electronics. This interference takes place when electromagnetic radiation emitted by one device interferes with another nearby device. Modern marine environments feature several potential sources of EMI that can negatively impact electronics. LED lighting equipment, in particular, is often a source of concern for EMI.

The USCG evaluated countless LED Lights while searching for a lighting solution for their fleets, but almost all of the available options proved to either provide insufficient light output or create interference.

The USCG's Research and Development Center in New London Connecticut evaluated DurBrite Lights, showing minimal EMI when compared to competitors.

Today, DuraBrite's Mini Series are installed on their 47ft Life Safety Boats and play an essential role in this fleet's search and rescue operations.
