Application filed July 5,
Be it known that I, SAMUEL H. Ennns'rnm, a citizen of the United States residing at Bayonne, in the county of udson and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Ships Lights, of which. the following is a specification.
In carrying out the present invention, it is my purpose to provide a powerful light for ships of all kinds, wherein the same may be properly steered upon its course during fdggy or inclement weather.
The primary. bject of this invention resides in the provisionof such a light that is simple of'construction, and one that may be readily disassembled for the repairing of the sameyor the renewal of parts.
A still further object of my invention is the. provision ofashipslight, wherein the same includes a number of light sources such as electric bulbs wherein the rays of light from the different bulbs are directed outwardly through a central lens for thereby providing a powerful light.
The nature and advantages of: the, invention will be better understood when the following detailed description-is read in contiection with the accompanying drawings, the invention residing in the combination,
In. the, drawings forming part of this;
elevation of my imwith the removable reflector carrying plate removed, and
Figure 5 1s a. detail fragmentary cross section" taken substantially upon the line 5-5 of Figure l.
Now, having particular reference to the drawings, my novel ships light embodies a casing 5 of conventional form, and that car-' ries at its inner'reduced end a base 6 provided with longitudinalopenings 7, whereby the same may be secured to the smoke stac or other portion of a ship, through the medium of bolts or other fastening means.
threaded openi Within the casing 5 and wedged at its 1923. Serial no. 649,523.
Within the casing 5 and adjacent the front end thereof are spaced relatively elongated lugs 8, that are circular in cross section, and are provided with horizontal screw ngs.
outer edge in position between said lugs 8 is a reflector 9. Directly forwardly of this reflector 9 ,and having close contact withthe,
"front edge thereof is an annulus 10 that is formed with spaced ears 13 for-positioning in front of the said lugs 8, and that are provided with openings 'whereby said annulus may be secured in the position of Figures 4 and,5, through the medium-Moi set screws or the like 14. This annuluslO is formed at spaced points thereon with circular openings in which are positioned rearwardly and downwardly extending lamp socketslfi for receiving electric. lamps 16.
Between the said lamp socket carrying'open ings of the annulus, the same formed with elongated openings 17 for ventilatin purposes. Formed at opposite sides 0 each alternate one of said ventilating openings 17 are forwardly extending spaclng sleeves 18, with which are adapted to be alined openingswithin a circular disk 19, through which extend set screws 20, for securing said disk 19in position within the casing 5, lit-being understood infthis "connection that said spacing sleeved 18 vare internally screw threaded. 'In longitudinal alinement with the said ventilating openings 17 of the annulus 10 are similar openings 21, in said disk 19, which disk isfu-rther formed with a central opening surroundin which is a rearwardly directed somew at shaped skirt portion-22, the outer surface of which is highly polished for providing a reflector.
conical- Inposition upon the front end of the cas- Y ing 5' is a dome-shaped .cap 23, that formed with a marginal flange. for overlappin the forward edge of the casing, this cap in formed at its upper and ower sides wit cars 24, that are complementary to cars 25 formed upon the casing 5, these latter mentioned ears carrying forwardly extending bolts that" reject through Bepenings :in the ears 24 an are screwthre ,ception of 'wing'nuts 26, whereby said cap may be maintained in position upon the ngm Thislid 23 is formed with a central opening, within which is received a. concaveed for the re-- convex lens 27 and surrounding said open- 'ing are ventilating openings 28. Carried by the reflector 9, and directly rearwardly of the said electric lamps 16 are magnifying lenses 29, for obvious 'urposes.
t is of course to be un erstood that the lamp bulb sockets 15 have electrical connection with a suitable source of electrical scribed the most preferred embodiment of viding a source of light that will penetrate heavy fogs, whereby the ship or other vessel ma be properly steered upon its course, and w ereby other vesselsmay be seen and avoided.
Even though Iha've herein shown and dc the invention with which I am at present familiar, it is nevertheless to be understood I that minor changes may be made therein, without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed. i i Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desnreto secure by Letters Patent is:
Ashipsflight comprising a casln having ventllating openings a reflector oused thereinfimd spaced from 'the side walls" thereof, a cone shaped skirt member supported in the casing beyond the larger end of the reflector and extending into the reflector, said skirt member having an annular flange which extends to theginner surface of the casing and which is provided with ventilating openings, electrlc bulbs disposed the space between the inner surface,
of the reflectorand the skirt portionyelec tric conductors leading through the space between the reflector andthe casing to the bulbs and lenses located in the space be: tween the reflector and the skirt portion.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
