EPIRB SmarfFind 8 Manual sends emergency signals in the Cospas-Sarsat system (406 MHz) via satellite directly to the sea rescue center. In addition, it transmits the emergency frequency of the flight (121.5 MHz), which enables helicopters and sea rescue vessels to track it.
Compatible with the new MEOSAR system. Please read more about how the Cospas-Sarsat system works at Cospas-Sarsat (link can be found below) The EPIRB is delivered with a wall bracket and is then mounted indoors in an easily accessible place. In case of emergency, you can proceed in different ways: Either you trigger an alarm manually by pressing the emergency button or throw it into the lake when it starts to alarm automatically in contact with water. The battery lasts for 10 years but the device should be checked every 5 years. For SOLAS vessels, this is a requirement.
