Fastfind 406MHz Personal Location Beacon

Fastfind 406 MHz Personal Location Beacon is a revolutionary hand-held Personal Locator Beacon that features a 406 MHz transmitter and 121.5 MHz homing signal. It is ideal for alerting the rescue services of an emergency during maritime, light aircraft and outdoor activities. (Where licensing allows). The 406 MHz frequency provides an alert signal to the rescue services within 90 minutes depending on satellite passes and give a positional accuracy to within 3nm. Once in the vicinity the 121.5 MHz transmitter provides a signal for the rescue services to home-in on. This information is more than sufficient to enable rescue services to find a vessel or individual in distress particularly if equipped with flares and lifejacket light.

RB6 EPIRB 406 MHz With Strobe

The Pains Wessex RES-Q-SAT RB6 Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon will raise the alarm and give your location in an emergency situation. Following manual activation it will transmit a distinctive radio signal on 406 MHz international distress frequencies, accessing the COSPAS/SARSAT Satellite Aided Search and Rescue System.

Features

Pilot light will show green as an assurance to those awaiting rescue that the Unit is transmitting.

Reflective tape assists rapid night time visual detection.

The latest solid state circuitry withstands the toughest of offshore conditions with maximum reliability.

Supplied with a sturdy non rusting, quick release bulk head bracket with full base support ensuring that the unit does not dislodge in rough conditions.

Unique waterproof on/off/test switch eliminates reliance on rubber boot to prevent water ingress.

Tether with preformed loop for quick securing to a person, boat or life raft.

Fit and forget lithium batteries provide a 5 year battery life before replacement.

SOS Rescue 406 EPIRB

406MHz Float-Free Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB).

The SOS 406 Epirb combines modern styling with the strength and durability required for a fully GMDSS compliant EPIRB. Using state-of-the-art electronics with a 3 cell Lithium battery has resulted in a small and lightweight EPIRB with a compact mounting footprint.

GMDSS compliant
AMSA SOLAS
Global distress alerting
Satellite location
Fully enclosed housing (Optional)
Small and light and with a 5 year shelf life

The Pains Wessex SOS 406 is a third generation satellite distress beacon designed to operate in conjunction with the Cospas-Sarsat international satellite search and rescue system. This system locates beacons transmitting on the 406MHz frequency to within 5km (3nm). Once Search and Rescue (SAR) units are at the distress scene the beacons 121.5MHz homing transmitter and its high intensity xenon strobe light aid final location even in poor visibility.

The SOS 406 is fully compatible with Cospas-Sarsat and Global Maritime Distress Safety System (GMDSS) regulations and meets the latest requirements (A810-19) of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).
When shipped the beacon is programmed with a unique serial number which must be registered with the national authorities. Where national authorities allow, the beacon can be re-programmed with the vessel's satellite or radio call sign. This is done by the distributor using an infra-red light pen connected to a Windows based computer.

The SOS 406 is supplied with a fully enclosed automatic float free housing which allows the EPIRB to be self-tested while in the housing for SOLAS GMDSS application. For non GMDSS use the SOS 406 can be supplied in a quick release bulkhead mounting bracket, or in a non automatic version of the fully enclosed housing.

Once removed from its mounting bracket activation is automatic by immersion in water or manual by a protected push button on the rear of the EPIRB. An additional self-test button runs a short diagnostic check and indicates the EPIRB is ready for use.
