FastACQ™ GPS engine acquires LAT/LON from a cold start better than normal GPS engines.
FastACQ™ GPS is on for up to 25 minutes in the first 45 minutes of operation.
Patented proprietary electronics package provides greater frequency stability for most accurate position through the LEOSAR satellites.
100-meter (110 yds) GPS position accuracy, optimum allowed by Cospas-Sarsat.
Only EPIRB available that provides a GPS acquisition test, a full functional self test of internal circuitry and battery voltage.
Category I: Fully enclosed, high density, UV stabilized polyethylene bracket with hydrostatic release. Withstands extremely abusive environments. Hydrostatic release automatically employs EPIRB if vessel sinks to approximately 4 meters (13 ft).
Category II: Universal LowPro2™ bracket; includes bulkhead and rail mount option.
Transmits on 406 MHz (Cospas-Sarsat) with your registered, digitally coded distress signal, and 121.5 MHz (SAR homing frequency).
