The light was fixed and red, reaching 9 miles; together with the Lantern had cost 6,087 pesetas. It was a burning lamp for olive oil and an optical device of sixth order and 375 mm of focal length, the Sautter.

This system is not replaced until the year 1947. It is then when the flame fuel, change what happens for acetylene gas with olive oil, and a flashing light of naked Sun valve with flame and four batteries installed.
