The Utility Lanterns portfolio from AEL® receives next gen upgrades with improved performance and electronics

With a seemingly endless number of LED products flooding the market today it can be difficult for lighting customers to make the proper choice for reliable solutions that meet their expectations. With a new next gen upgrade, AEL breaks through the clutter with the hands down best choice for utility and municipal lanterns for roadway and area lighting. Read on to see why.

In addition to increased performance the Utility Lanterns portfolio offers unparalleled internal component protection. From 20kV/10kA surge protection to the XVOLT driver platform, lanterns from AEL can receive maximum protection from surges, dropped neutrals and other dirty power issues that can take out your lighting network.

To further enhance energy savings and carbon footprint reduction, AEL LED Lanterns are available with a variety of advanced controls options from our DTL® and nLight® brands. Get up to 20 years of service life from the DLL Elite or upgrade to a smart city network with the Itron® networked nodes from DTL. The rTLN node can even allow you to connect your outdoor and indoor lighting for a seamless nLight AIR site lighting network that is simple to control, monitor and maintain.
