ACR GlobalFix V4 – Cat 1 EPIRB

REF: LAL-0001

SKU: LAL-0001

Drastically increase your chances of survival at sea. With the multiple built-in redundancies of the GlobalFix V4 Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB). Upon activation, the GlobalFix V4’s robust internal GPS accurately fixes your exact location. Also, your coordinates are broadcast via a powerful 406 MHz distress signal.

In the absence of GPS data, orbiting Cospas-Sarsat satellites can accurately triangulate your position using the 406 MHz signal alone. Additionally, a 121.5 MHz homing signal further guides searchers to your exact position.
