McMurdo Fastfind MaxG GPS PLB -  85890001A


The Fastfind Plus Personal Locator Beacon features the same advanced technology as found in the award winning Precision 406 GPS EPIRB. Designed using miniaturised components to fit into an ergonomically styled compact casing, the PLB employs a simple three-stage manual operation and features user replaceable batteries for use in temperatures down to -20 °C or -40 ° C.

When activated, the Fastfind Plus with integral GPS provides a 406 MHz alert signal via the COSPAS-SARSAT satellite system. There is a visual indicator of GPS acquisition. Fastfind Plus also transmits on the International Aircraft Emergency Frequency of 121.5 MHz providing a homing signal for the Search And Rescue (SAR) services. A built-in self test facility includes testing of the 406 MHz and 121.5 MHz signal (where permitted) and GPS power up.

Carrying the Fastfind Plus could not be simpler, as it is supplied with a lanyard and carry case to enable the user to keep the PLB safely attached at all times.

These latest advanced products from McMurdo have been designed to provide recreational boaters, professional or semi professional crew, delivery yachtsmen and fishermen the very best chance of being found, without delay, at sea in an emergency.

Intended for use within the maritime mobile service and where permitted by national administrations within the land mobile service.
