Satellite3 406 EPIRB, Cat I Class 2 (-20°C) Non-Haz (RLB-38)(Optional GPS Interface P/N 9388.1) with fully enclosed bracket 2874
Cat.1 (RLB-38 CAT I)
Automatically Activated: Unit with Hydrostatic release mechanism. Stationed outside the pilot house, this unit will deploy and activate automatically if the vessel sinks. Required on all commercial fishing vessels. Catalog/Website Copy: Overview: The SATELLITE3 406™ EPIRB has quietly built a reputation in the commercial fishing industry. This workhorse utilizes a patented, 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 narrows the search radius from 2.3 nm down to .05 nm (110 yds) and provides SAR notification typically in 2–15 minutes.

• Automatic Category I SeaShelter3™ bracket is fully enclosed and is made of high density, UV-stabilized polyethylene for years of extreme abuse; the patented HRU rod system releases the beacon when submerged in water between 4.9 and 13.1 ft (1.5 – 4 m) (P/N 2874).

• Manual Category II bracket has a low profile and is easy to rail mount or secure on deck (P/N 2875).
