The device is either activated manually with a push button or automatically when it comes into contact with water. Water activation is only possible after the EPIRB has been released from the bracket. After activation, the internal 66-channel GPS ensures fast location determination. The coordinates are then transmitted to a satellite at a frequency of 406 MHz for at least 48 hours. In addition, a search signal is sent out to 121.5 MHz, so that an aircraft, helicopter or SAR vessel can locate your position. The powerful, strobe-light makes the device highly visible in the dark. In order to prevent the the device from being triggered unintentionally, a cover has been installed to protect the release button.
The integrated battery has a lifespan of 10 years and can be easily replaced by the user afterwards. Supplied with standard bracket for wall mounting.
