McMurdo G5 SmartFind Plus 406 Epirb Auto Release 82800002A
McMurdo have a long history of supplying high quality emergency equipment to the commercial shipping, IMO and SOLAS markets. The SmartFind EPIRB range continues this tradition with the most compact, technically advanced and robust unit to date. The non-hazardous battery makes shipment quick and easy ensuring that vessels are not unduly delayed, no matter where they may be, when a replacement unit is required. Smartfind EPIRBs are available in a manual bracket or a SOLAS approved automatic housing.
Meeting the demands of both commercial mariners and recreational boaters, the new McMurdo SMARTFIND Plus heralds the arrival of the next generation in EPIRB technology
The G5 SMARTFIND PLUS contained within a float free Auto-Housing has all the advanced features of the standard E5 SMARTFIND with the addition of an integral 12 channel GPS receiver. The float free housing will automatically deploy the EPIRB when it submerges, meeting SOLAS requirements. The addition of a GPS receiver to the EPIRB ensures that the exact position of a casualty is relayed to the rescue services. This can in turn improve the speed of recovery by updating the position of the beacon at regular intervals.
The Smartfind Plus GPS EPIRB has been designed to enhance further the lifesaving capabilities of conventional beacons. The standard Global Positioning System (GPS) uses an array of 27 satellites and provides continuous positional information with a typical accuracy of around 30m. A 406MHz EPIRB such as the Smartfind Plus or Fastfind Plus PLB has a built in GPS, when the beacon is activated in an emergency, positional information is incorporated into the distress message which it transmits. This incorporation of positional information overcomes the location problem when using geostationary satellites and can greatly reduce the time it takes for the SAR authorities to arrive on the scene. When speed of response and accuracy of location are important considerations, then the Smartfind GPS EPIRB offers the best performance.
The Auto Float Free Housing meets SOLAS requirements and will automatically deploy the EPIRB when submerged to a depth lower than 2 - 4metres in the sea.
