ACR GlobalFix V5 EPIRB with AIS and RLS

The new ACR GlobalFix V5 EPIRB is an innovative EPIRB with a unique feature set. The addition of an AIS alert provides the easiest and quickest path to rescue while the included Return Link Service (RLS) functionality provides a welcome sense of security by providing direct to beacon confirmation that your distress message has been received. This advanced feature set makes the GlobalFix V5 perfect for mariners whether coastal cruising, working offshore or crossing oceans.

  • Dual 406 MHz and 121.5 MHz Signal Transmission
  • AIS Locating Signal
  • Return Link Service
  • Compatible with GPS, Galileo & Glonass
  • Visible and IR Strobe Array
  • GMDSS/ SOLAS Approved: Compliant with the mandatory International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulation (as of July 2022) and Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) regulation.

Introducing the most advanced EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon) available. The new ACR GlobalFix V5 EPIRB combines 406 MHz satellite connectivity with Automatic Identification System (AIS) functionality. This means that when the ACR GlobalFix V5 EPIRB is activated not only does it transmit your emergency signal to the global Cospas Sarsat satellite rescue system, but it broadcasts an AIS safety message on VHF frequencies that can be seen immediately by any AIS equipped vessel nearby. These vessels in the area where the ACR GlobalFix V5 EPIRB has been activated can then start rescue and recovery operations immediately without having to wait for emergency response from the applicable SAR authority.

The addition of Return Link Service (RLS) technology provides visual confirmation to the user that their distress message has been received, thereby reducing the stress associated with a mayday situation. Additional features include a 121.5 MHz homing signal and visible and infrared strobe lights for easy target identification at night or in poor visibility.

ACR is the global leader in marine safety and rescue technology and the new ACR GlobalFix V5 EPIRB with AIS combines the durability and reliability they are known for with advanced technology designed to speed rescue response time.
