Satellite3 406™
Cat I 406 MHz EPIRB
Product: 2874

The ACR Satellite series has quietly built a strong reputation in the commercial and recreational marine industry. This redesigned workhorse utilizes a proprietary electronics package for faster, more stable 406 MHz transmissions to low-earth orbiting LEOSAR satellites. In an emergency, your registered, digitally-coded distress message is broadcast via a powerful 6-watt, 406 MHz signal (typically within 1 hour). An integrated 121.5 MHz homing signal then guides local Search and Rescue efforts.

Upgrade to GPS positioning with the optional GPS interface cable (sold separately). This connects the Satellite3 406™ to your vessel?s GPS receiver to continuously update and store precise position data. GPS positioning provides SAR notification typically within 2-15 minutes.

The automatic category I Sea Shelter3™ bracket is fully enclosed and is made of high density, UV-stabilized polyethylene for years of extreme abuse, while the manual category II QuickDraw™ has a low profile and is easy to rail mount or secure on deck.

Send I'M OK messages with optional non-emergency messaging service.
