Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB)
Roam freely and safely with the GlobalFix™ iPRO Emergency Position Indicating
Radio Beacon (EPIRB). When it comes to marine safety electronics, this EPIRB is
in a class of its own. The GlobalFix iPRO has a digital display that lets you
view all of the beacon's functionalities, including GPS latitude/longitude,
transmission bursts, and battery power. Know that if you run into a boat
emergency, the GlobalFix iPRO EPIRB will help search and rescue teams pinpoint
your location and help get you home safe and sound.
GlobalFix™ iPRO sports a digital display that allows you to see all of the
beacon's operational activities. The screen displays GPS LAT/LON, operating
instructions, usage tips, transmission bursts as well as battery power.
iPRO makes self-testing your beacon simple and easy to understand with the
digital display visually walking you through the self test step by step; no more
relying on listening to beeps and LEDs.
The GlobalFix™ iPRO is also the first EPIRB that offers Dual GPS Technology.
Interface your iPRO to your onboard GPS to ensure that your LAT/LON is stored
inside so the coordinates are transmitted in the first data burst. iPRO's
internal GPS is optimized for cold starts and is tested and refined at ACR's GPS
Simulation Center so that it will pinpoint your exact location faster than
standard GPS enabled EPIRBs.

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. Learn
How A Rescue Works
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: Where can I purchase a beacon?

Q: Is there a subscription fee for beacon registration or rescue service?
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 EPIRB?
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.
