ACR, the world leader in electronic marine safety devices, introduces a high-tech EPIRB (Emergency Positioning Radio Beacon).

The ACR GlobalFix V6 EPIRBuses 406 MHz satellite connectivity to transmit emergency signals to the global Cospas Sarsatsatellite rescue system.

Return Link Service (RLS) technology provides visual confirmation to the user that their distress message has been received.

A 121.5 MHz homing signal helps rescuers find the activated beacon when they are on the scene.

Visible and infrared strobe lights aid in target identification at night or when visibility is limited speeding rescue and recovery.

A feature called Near Field Communication (NFC) lets users monitor their EPIRB’s functions using a smartphone App.

ACR is dedicated to marine safety and the new GlobalFixV6 EPIRB provides sophisticated rescue technology in a durable and reliable device that works globally.
