Provide Safety for your family and Crew with an ACR Epirb!
EPIRB - Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon. The ACR 2848 Category II GlobalFix iPRO 406 GPS Epirb is a must have safety device for anyone boating, cruising or fishing in a large lake or off the coast. The primary job for an EPIRB is to send a distress signal to the SAR (Search And Rescue) Satellite system. The ACR 2848 GlobalFix iPro 406 is a catagory II manual release EPIRB. A manual release EPIRB is perfect for a ditch bag or mounting in a waterproof area. Manual EPIRBs are designed to be activated by the user by flipping a switch located on the top of the unit. The bonus with the iPro 406 is the built in GPS sensor. When a distress signal is sent, your LAT/LON position will transmit with the distress call creating a much smaller search area down to .05NM radius as compared to 2.3NM radius with a conventional EPIRB. The iPro 406 can also interface with an External GPS via NMEA 0183 to provide location prior to activation which ensures Lat/Lon transmission immediately.
The GlobalFix ipro also has an interactive digital display which indicates beacon transmission information, GPS position, battery power and self-test results. The Bright LED consumes less energy than a traditional strobe without sacraficing intensity. The iPro 406 EPIRB will transmit for a minimum of 48 hours at -20C degrees.
Please note all EPIRB's and PLB's are programmed for registration in the USA. If you are registering the device outside of the USA reprogramming will be required. Also, we apologize but we cannot accept orders for EPIRBS's or PLB's from Australia or New Zealand.
