The beacon comes in 3 models with different vertical divergences to cover fixed and floating based applications:
• 10 degree (ideal for buoys)
• 5 degree (for land/pole use)
• 2.5 degree (for lighthouses)
The Vlb-44 can be configured from one to eight tiers and can be sized to the range of a particular application. Multiple units can be used to extend the range to 16 Nm. Each tier uses approximately 10 Watts of energy.
Available in Red, Green, White, Yellow and Blue. All colours meet the IALA chromaticity recommendation.
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.
