Carmanah Technologies launched the new M550, one to three nautical mile marine lantern and private aid-to-navigation (PATON). At fifteen times brighter and half the weight and size of its popular M502 predecessor, the M550 is the most efficient, small format, solar-powered marine lantern on the market, the manufacturer claims.

The Carmanah M550 includes several key updates and technology innovations that improve user experience and dramatically simplify inventory management for stocking distributors. The lantern features immediate out-of-box activation and is powered off of new high-temperature AA Nickel Metal Hydride batteries that have been selected for their ability to survive up to two years in storage while still performing reliably in harsh maritime conditions. Also included is a new generation of energy management system which trends battery charging over multiple days and regulates lantern intensity for longer battery life and optimal performance throughout the calendar year. The lantern offers 40 user-adjustable flash patterns and includes the ability to direct enter an effective intensity of up to 26 candela using a compact infrared programmer. The unit is available in two easy-mount designs for quick installation in a wide variety of locations including posts and poles.

The M550 complements Carmanah’s updated M650H marine lantern which achieves intensities of up to 60cd and a range of up to 4 NM while offering wider geographic coverage and supporting heavier duty cycles required by many industrial applications.

“The M550 lantern is an exciting innovation for Carmanah. With the updated charging technology and battery chemistries, this is the first product in the Carmanah signal line that can be held in inventory for an extensive period. Combined with updated optical and solar designs, the M550 cements Carmanah’s position as a leader in solar LED lantern technology innovation,” said Carmanah CEO, Bruce Cousins.

The M550 is the successor to the Carmanah M502 lantern which has been deployed at private docks, industrial sites, marinas and ports around the globe for over a decade. The M550 comes with a three-year product warranty. The lantern is available for pre-order today through Carmanah’s network of global distributors. For more information, visit carmanahmarine.com.
