ACR AquaLink View PLB
The AquaLink View PLB broadcasts a unique registered distress signal. This tells rescuers where you are and who you are. The on-board GPS identifies your position and utilizes a powerful 406 MHz signal to relay your distress call to orbiting satellites. Search and Rescue is deployed, a separate homing signal and integrated LED strobe light guide rescuers to your exact location.
The AquaLink View sports a digital display that allows you to see all of the beacon’s operational activities. The built in LCD screen displays your GPS LAT/LON, operating instructions, usage tips, transmission bursts and battery power. The ACR Aqualink View digital display makes self-testing your beacon simple and easy to understand by visually walking you through the self-test step by step. No more relying on listening to beeps and looking for LEDs.
The AquaLin View is small enough to be easily carried in a pack or pocket or can be worn on deck, at the helm, in quarters or on a life vest and will float if accidentally dropped overboard.
ACR Exclusive: Built-in GPS acquisition test mode allows you to test GPS functionality up
