GlobalFIX V4 Emergency Position Beacon - With built-in GPS. Non-hazmat lithium battery with a 10-year lifespan. Bracket for Category II manual release. Transmitter of 5 watts.
The several built-in redundancies of the GlobalFIX V4 marine distress EPIRB dramatically boost your chances of survival at sea. The GlobalFIX V4's powerful integrated GPS accurately fixes your exact location after activation. Your coordinates are then sent to Search and Rescue forces all over the world through a strong 406 MHz distress signal. In the absence of GPS data, orbiting Cospas-Sarsat satellites can calculate your position precisely using only the 406 MHz signal. A homing signal at 121.5 MHz directs searchers to your specific location.
The GlobalFIX V4 is a full-featured EPIRB with high-efficiency electronics for dependable performance, including a built-in 66-channel GPS for faster acquisition from a cold start. The all-new, user-replaceable battery pack has a 10-year replacement interval, lowering overall ownership costs and making replacement simple.
Two functional self-tests are included with the GlobalFIX V4 to evaluate the beacon's transmission, power and battery performance, and GPS acquisition. Receive satellite confirmation messages immediately to your mobile phone or email when you combine these exams with ACR's optional testing site 406Link.com (available exclusively in the Americas).
