At 153 grams and topping just 11.4 cm, the ACR 406 ResQLink PLB+ is the smallest, bouyant PLB available today. Small enough to easily be carried in a pocket, clipped to a backpack or stored inside an inflatable life jacket.
This model is naturally bouyant and comes set to strap to your lifejacket, backpack or anything else you are wearing / carrying.
With three levels of integrated signal technology - GPS positioning, a powerful 406 MHz signal, and 121.5 MHz homing capability - the ResQLink™ quickly and accurately relays your position to a worldwide network of search and rescue satellites. A built-in strobe light provides visibility during night rescues.
PLBs have been proven tried and true in some of the world's most remote locations and treacherous conditions. In the recent rescue of the crew from the yacht Inception in Bass Strait in mountainous seas, 5 PLBs were activated and the ACR PLBs were detected as much as 80 minutes faster and with a GPS signal in all cases.
Two built-in tests allow you to routinely verify that the ResQLink+™ is functioning and ready for use - with the push of a button, you can easily test internal electronics and GPS functionality.
