Pathfinder PRO / Part Number 2914
Drastically increase your probability of survival at sea with the Pathfinder
PRO Search and Rescue Transponder.
The Pathfinder Pro is a fully approved
Search and Rescue Transponder (SART) that complies with IMO SOLAS regulations.
When interrogated by radar, the Pathfinder Pro returns 12 intense blips back to
the vessels radar screen, greatly enhancing search and rescue efforts. The
superior lithium battery provides over 96 hours of operating life in standby
mode (waiting to be interrogated by radar) and 12 hours of active operating life
(while interrogated by radar).
The Pathfinder Pro comes with a sleek wall
mount to keep this compact SART out of the way, yet readily accessible in an
emergency. The attached telescopic pole conveniently connects to the bottom of
the SART and provides for maximum height and visibility out of a life craft.
The SART can also be suspended inside the craft for hands free usage.
