Not to be confused with 3-sector lights, which use red for 'too far port' and green for 'too far starboard'!

Yep. There are lots of different types of sector lights. Primarily, single sectors are used in US waters to highlight a danger area or as an obscured sector in the case of those sector lights that "black out" a portion of the arc. In International waters, multiple color sector lights are used much more extensively.
