Communication and Safety at Sea

This EPIRB is fitted with a 121.5MHz homing beacon. Rescue services use this for the close-in location of vessels in distress. In addition, the EPIRB is equipped with a high-brightness LED strobe light for additional impact, especially at night for emergencies where a user cannot reach the EPIRB in time. The EPIRB1 Pro comes with a Category I Automatic Release Housing (commonly called ‘float free’). This ensures the internal Hydrostatic Release Unit automatically deploys the EPIRB from the bracket. It then automatically activates and floats to the surface to send your distress message to the satellite network.

The Automatic Release Housing (ARH) also includes a convenient adapter providing multiple retrofit options. Use the adapter to easily mount the ARH using the same mounting holes previously used for older and larger EPIRBS. Such as the Ocean Signal E100/E100G, Jotron Tron 60s, and McMurdo E5/G5.
