The GlobalFix™ V4 EPIRB is a marine distress beacon with multiple
built-in redundancies to increase your chances of survival in an
emergency situation. The internal GPS of the GlobalFix™ V4 EPIRB will
pin-point your location, which is transmitted on the 406 MHz distress
signal that, in the absence of GPS coordinates, can be used to
triangulate your position. The beacon's 121.5 MHz homing signal will
bring local search and rescue forces directly to your position and the
EPIRBs LED strobe light will allow them to visually locate your position
in low-light environments.
The GlobalFix V4 has two functional
self-tests to monitor the beacon's transmission, power and battery
performance, as well as GPS acquisition. Pair these tests up with ACR’s
406Link.com optional testing portal and receive satellite confirmation
messages directly to your cell phone or email.
user-replaceable battery pack has a 10-year replacement interval,
reducing the overall ownership cost and making replacement a breeze.
This device is manually activated.
