Cat I 406 MHz EPIRB
The ACR Satellite series has quietly built a strong reputation in the commercial and recreational marine industry. This redesigned workhorse utilizes a proprietary electronics package for faster, more stable 406 MHz transmissions to low-earth orbiting LEOSAR satellites. In an emergency, your registered, digitally-coded distress message is broadcast via a powerful 6-watt, 406 MHz signal (typically within 1 hour). An integrated 121.5 MHz homing signal then guides local Search and Rescue efforts.
Upgrade to GPS positioning with the optional GPS interface cable (sold separately). This connects the Satellite3 406 to your vessel?s GPS receiver to continuously update and store precise position data. GPS positioning provides SAR notification typically within 2-15 minutes.
The automatic category I Sea Shelter3 bracket is fully enclosed and is made of high density, UV-stabilized polyethylene for years of extreme abuse, while the manual category II QuickDraw has a low profile and is easy to rail mount or secure on deck.
Send I'M OK messages with optional 406Link.com non-emergency messaging service.
