Carmanah Technologies Corporation Victoria British Columbia has announced the M708 solar-powered marine lantern.

Fully configurable with 256 flash patterns and a minimum peak intensity of 125 candela (and performance up to six nautical miles) the M708 lantern is available in each of the International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation (IALA) light colors making it suitable for a wide range of navigation and hazard-marking applications.

For applications requiring multiple lanterns an optional global positioning satellite (GPS) feature enables two or more units to be synchronized to flash in unison. Durable construction and top-quality materials ensure years of reliable maintenance-free performance in even the most extreme environments for a long-lasting lighting alternative that can significantly reduce total cost of ownership.

As an environmentally friendly product the M708 is also entirely RoHS compliant – designed in strict accordance with the European Union’s guidelines for the restriction of hazardous substances in electronic equipment.

Carmanah introduced the new marine lantern at the American Association of Port authorities show in Anchorage Alaska in September.
