I am especially appreciative of the support of Dr. Leon Riebman, the Chairman of the Board, and Mark Ronald, president of AEL Industries, Inc., for their faith in and...

Products & Services
Fiber Optic Couplers
Fiber optic couplers are optical devices that connect three or more fiber ends, dividing one input between two or more outputs, or combining two or more inputs into one output.
Microwave Tubes
Microwave tubes are lamps that produce microwaves.
RF Waveguide Components
RF waveguide components are circular, elliptical or rectangular metal tubes or pipes through which electromagnetic waves are propagated in microwave and RF communications. The wave passing through the medium is forced to follow the path determined by the physical structure of the guide.
Motion and Occupancy Detectors
Motion detectors are devices that contain either a physical mechanism or an electronic sensor that detects motion within a specific field of view. Common motion detectors include passive infrared (PIR) and active ultrasonic and microwave.
Board Mount RF Filters
Board mount RF filters are devices mounted to a printed circuit board (PCB) which pass or reject signals by frequency.
