Vega VLB-36

MEDIUM RANGE LANTERN 4-7 NM 7º or 10º Vertical Divergence Stand Alone & Self Contained

Vega’s VLB-36 range of marine beacons use highly efficient optics and electronics providing energy efficiency as high as 90 candela per Watt at 5 NM (depending on vertical divergence) This level of efficiency significantly reduces the solar panel and battery requirement in standalone applications.

With up to 320 Candela peak intensity with 7 and 10 degrees vertical divergence, this light is designed to meet US Coast Guard specification 502 and 503 for 5 NM self-contained beacons. Three sizes of solar units are available (stand-alone size shown). 

Mounting is via 3 studs on a 200 mm diameter circle. The enclosure is fully sealed against ingress of salt spray and moisture. 

Also available as a beacon only (no solar box), this beacon is approved for use as a Class A, B and C light for artificial islands and structures in US Coast Guard 8th District under CFR 33 Part 67.

The VLB-36 lanterns are available as stand alone, or self-contained or Wreck Marking versions and options include AIS Type 1 or 3 with Current Sensor, GPS Synchronised Flashing and Remote Monitoring.

Vega VLB-36

The 7 Nautical Marine Beacon (VLB-36) comes in 2 different vertical divergences to cover fixed and floating applications:

 • 10 degree (ideal for buoys)

 •  7 degree (for land/pole use)

It is also available as a stand-alone or a self-contained with 7.8W, 15W or 30 Watts solar power.

Available in Red, Green, White, Yellow and Blue.

The VLB-36 can aso be supplied as a fully IALA compliant Wreck Marker lantern with a 2 Tiered Yellow and Blue configuration. (Code VLB-36 WR)

The unique optical system utilises an acrylic lens to maximise the light capture from the LEDs. The LEDs are precisely graded and placed to produce a light beam with minimum variation in intensity. A switch mode regulator maintains the light output of the LEDs independent of input of voltage and temperature.
