StaySafeOutThere with the GlobalFix™ PRO Emergency Position Indicating Radio
Beacon (EPIRB). This beacon is equipped with an internal GPS that quickly and
accurately relays your position to a worldwide network of search and rescue
satellites, should you run into a boat emergency. Have peace of mind every time
you head offshore knowing that the GlobalFix PRO EPIRB consistently takes the
‘search’ out of ‘search and rescue’.
The GlobalFix™ PRO broadcasts a unique registered distress signal that not
only tells rescuers where you are, but who you are. The internal GPS will
automatically turn on and acquire your position upon activation and then
utilizes a powerful 406 MHz signal to relay your distress call to orbiting
satellites. As local Search and Rescue is deployed, a separate homing signal and
integrated LED strobe light guide rescuers to your exact location.
The GlobalFix™ PRO is small and rugged and comes with over 53 years of life
saving technology built into every one. Performing a full functional self test
of the GlobalFix™ PRO internal circuitry, battery voltage & power, and 406 MHz
transmission gives you the peace of mind knowing your EPIRB will work the moment
you need it the most. ACR Exclusive: Built-in GPS acquisition test mode allows
you to test the internal GPS receiver to ensure it's working properly.
Tap in to the same field-tested rescue technology used by the U.S. Military,
Coast Guard, NATO, Special Forces and Arctic explorers.

Q: What do EPIRBs do?
Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRBs) are distress radio
beacons which transmit location information about ships directly to Search and
Rescue forces letting them know that the owner is in grave and imminent danger.
Q: Will 406 MHz beacons work anywhere in the world?
Yes, 406 MHz beacons can be used anywhere in the world, including at both
poles, just remember that you need a clear view of the sky (they will not work
in buildings or caves, etc.)
Q: Is there a subscription fee for beacon registration or rescue
Beacon registration is free, should you ever have to activate your beacon,
rescue is free in most parts of the world.
Q: What is the difference between a Category I and a Category II
The difference is in how the EPIRB is deployed. A Category I beacon
automatically deploys when a vessel sinks. The beacon floats free at a depth of
1.5 to 3.0m (4.9 to 13.1ft). The EPIRB can be manually activated while in its
bracket or manually removed and activated. A Category II beacon is manually
deployed. The EPIRB will automatically activate when removed from its bracket
and comes in contact with water, or when it is still in its bracket but a person
has lifted the switch to the activation position.
