ACR Satellite 3 406 Cat I EPIRB w/Digital Display
406 MHz Satellite 3 406 EPIRB
The SATELLITE3 406 EPIRB has quietly built a reputation in the commercial fishing industry. This 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 (SAR) efforts.
Upgrade to GPS positioning with the optional GPS interface cable (sold separately). This connects the SATELLITE3 to your vessel's GPS receiver to continuously update and store precise position data. GPS positioning narrows the search radius from 2.3 nm down to .05 nm (110 yds) and provides SAR notification typically in 2-15 minutes.
