SmartFind G5 GPS (Manual Bracket)
GPS EPIRB (Manual Bracket)
An Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) is a safety device carried by a vessel to alert search and rescue services and allow them to quickly locate you in the event of an emergency.
When activated transmits a coded message on a distress frequency
The Transmitted coded message is on a distress frequency which is monitored 24/7 by Cospas-Sarsat satellite system. The alert is relayed to the nearest Rescue Coordination Centre (RCC). As the satellites are in a polar orbit they offer global coverage therefore with an EPIRB you can summon help wherever you are on the planet.
Supplied as standard with a mounting bracket
Must be manually activated, however a SOLAS Auto Float Free Housing is also available which automatically deploys and activates the EPIRB when it is submerged.
EPIRB forms part of the GMDSS mandated equipment package required by law for all commercial vessels over 300 tons
Non-mandate vessels and leisure boats choose to carry an EPIRB for safety and have been responsible for saving hundreds of lives.
