Self-Contained Marine Lanterns

With a durable, large-format solar engine, and wide-coverage remote monitoring capabilities, the M860 is engineered for consistent, reliable performance at remote installations and in challenging insolation locations.

  • Intuitive Setup & Programming

Top-mounted 4-character LED display and simple “tap to activate” functionality allows users to easily check light settings without the need for an external controller. Built-in calendar function allows for automatic de-activation during off-season months. Programmable with optional IR remote.

  • Scalable, Cost Effective Design

Customizable for best value-for-performance at each installation location. Choose from standard or wide divergences (for fixed or floating applications), and multiple battery pack options.

  • Intelligent Energy Management

Combines best-in-class, high-efficiency solar panels and MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) with Carmanah’s patented Energy Management System (EMS) for maximum battery life and light performance in even the harshest of environments.

  • Durable, Low Maintenance

A standalone, maintenance-free unit with integrated solar panels, battery, electronics, and LED light source. Easily replaceable battery extends service life well beyond 5 years. Complies with the requirements of Title 33 of the US CFR, Part 67 for use on Class “A” “B” and “C” PATON structures.
