Description
ACR GlobalFix V5 - AIS RLS - Cat 2 EPIRB

Introducing the most advanced EPIRB (Emergency Positioning Radio Beacon) available. The new ACR GlobalFix V5 EPIRB combines 406 MHz satellite connectivity with Automatic Identification System (AIS) functionality. This means that when the EPIRB is activated not only does it transmit your emergency signal to the global Cospas Sarsat satellite rescue system, but it broadcasts an AIS safety message on VHF frequencies that can be seen immediately by any AIS equipped vessel nearby. Other great features include Return Link Service (RLS) technology that provides visual confirmation to the user that their distress message has been received, a 121.5 MHz homing signal, and visible and infrared strobe lights for easy target identification at night or in poor visibility. Another new feature is Near Field Communication (NFC) which allows users to monitor their EPIRB using a smartphone App. ACR is the global leader in marine safety and rescue technology and the new GlobalFix V5 EPIRB with AIS combines the durability and reliability they are known for with advanced technology designed to speed rescue response time.

  • Manual activation version (category 2)
  • Supplied with storage bracket
  • RLS - lets you know your emergency signal has been received
  • NFC Technology - use your sartphone to check your EPIRB
  • Battery life once activated: 48hrs

Questions & Answers
Questions & Answers
I am interested in this category 2 Epirb . It will be used in a Brazilian sailing boat. I understand it is manual activation. Two questions: 1 - Does it activate automatically when you throw it manually in water? 2- Can It be registered this in Brazil? Just waiting this information to purchase, since brazilian navy acepts both category 1 and 2 but they demand a water activation when the Epirb is manually trow into the water. Thank you Luciano Candisani
This will automatically activate when it hits the water- the manual part relates to the release mechanism, you will have to remove the EPIRB form the mount manually with this version. We do not have the ability to reprogram the EPIRB, the best people to contact about reprogramming is ocean safety https://www.oceansafety.com/servicing
