The VLB-44 Guiding the Way

The VLB-44 is Vega’s most versatile LED marine beacon which caters for a wide range of marine applications. Using highly efficient optics, the VLB-44 is capable of producing 175 candela per Watt (depending on vertical divergence). This level of efficiency significantly reduces the solar panel and battery requirement in standalone applications.

The quality and efficiency of the  VLB-44 was recognised in 2014 when the United States Coast Guard renewed its contract with Vega to supply the VLB-44.


This VLB-44 comes in 3 configurations and is available from 1-8 tiers:

• 10 degree vertical divergence for buoys

• 5 degree vertical divergence for land/pole use

• 2.5 degree vertical divergence for lighthouses
