The Kannad Marine SafeLink 406 MHz EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon) has integral GPS for highly accurate position information.
It works on the global COSPAS SARSAT search and rescue satellite system, which is supported by international government search and rescue authorities around the world, so a call for help will be acted upon and fast.
It is the first EPIRB to have an integrated antenna, enabling the compact size – and a user-replaceable battery, making future battery changes easier and more economical for the owner.
Waterproof and floats upright, allowing it to be tethered to a life raft and left to transmit.
The signal will continue to transmit for at least 48 hours at temperatures as low as -20°c. The integral high accuracy GPS provides an accurate position, typically +/- 62 meters along with new position updates every 20 minutes for fast recovery.
SafeLink also features a 121.5MHz homing signal to further assist with local recovery, while its high-brightness LED flashing locator lights aid visual location.
