From 1 January 2021, many domestic commercial vessels must install a float-free emergency position indicating radio beacon (EPIRB) by law.

The Ocean Signal rescueME EPIRB1 Pro Class 2 Cat 1 operates in the 406MHz satellite band and is fully compliant with the new AMSA regulations starting from January 1st 2021. This 406MHz band comprises of the international distress frequencies that are constantly monitored by Cospas-Sarsat, the international search and rescue satellite operator, ensuring a rapid response when a signal is received, no matter where it is in the world.

As the world’s most compact Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon or EPIRB, the EPIRB1 Pro pairs its compact stature with a durable design, making it a practical option to meet the needs of all commercial, fishing, and leisure vessels. The product has been designed for maximum efficiency and boasts a 10 year battery life in addition to superb operating life when activated, keeping rescue services updated with your location for longer.

The great features for this EPIRB1 PRO are:

  • Most compact Float Free EPIRB / 30% Smaller Footprint (typically)
  • State of the art 66 channel GPS receiver for fast and accurate position acquisition
  • Float Free bracket, automatic release housing with Hydrostatic Release Unit
  • High intensity strobe lights
  • 10 Year Battery Life with 48+ hours battery operation
  • Intuitive operating controls protected from accidental activation
  • Meets or exceeds all International standards including IMO and GMDSS
  • Class 2 EPIRB (-20°C – +55°C) for general use
  • Non hazardous battery

How it works automatically without you:

This EPIRB is fitted with a 121.5MHz homing beacon used by rescue services for close-in location of vessels in distress. In addition, the EPIRB is fitted with a high brightness LED strobe light for additional impact, especially at night. For emergency situations where a user is not physically able to reach the EPIRB in time, The EPIRB1 Pro also comes complete with a Category I Automatic Release Housing (commonly referred to as ‘float free’). This ensures that the EPIRB is automatically deployed from the bracket by the internal Hydrostatic Release Unit, and then also automatically activates and floats to the surface to send your distress message to the satellite network.
