2-5-105

A light which appears continuous and steady and of constant colour to an observer whose position remains unchanged in relation to it. (Fig. 40a)

Reference: C.I.E. (modified)


Note: In Britain and U.S.A., the term "Fixed light" is also loosely used for a light sup-ported on a fixed structure, as distinct from a light on a floating support.

(Compare "Fixed mark", 2-6-005).




Please note that this is the term as it stands in the original IALA Dictionary edition (1970-1989)
