An EPIRB saves lifes

The SAILOR 4065 EPIRBs are satellite distress beacons designed to operate in conjunction with the Cospas-Sarsat international satellite search and rescue system and are MEOSAR satellite compatible

For GMDSS compliance, the SAILOR 4065 EPIRBs have a slimline fully enclosed float free housing which allows self-testing of the EPIRB in question. The SAILOR 4065 EPIRBs are also available with a quick release bulkhead mounting bracket for carry-off situations.

When considering the SAILOR 4065 EPIRBs for your vessel, you have the choice of two versions – the version with no GNSS included or the version including GNSS. The version including GNSS is distinguished by a built-in GNSS and the ability to provide Search and Rescue (SAR) services with location details, including latitude and longitude to a typical accuracy of +/- 62m. Both models rely on the global Cospas Sarsat satellite system able to locate beacons transmitting on the 406MHz frequency to within 5km (3nm). Once SAR units are at the distress scene the beacon’s 121.5MHz homing transmitter and it’s high intensity strobe light aid final location even in poor visibility. SAILOR 4065 EPIRBs are fully compatible with the Cospas-Sarsat and Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) regulations and meets the requirements of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). When shipped the beacon is programmed with a unique serial number which must be registered with the national authorities. Where national authorities allow, the beacon can be re-programmed with the vessels satellite or radio call sign. This is done by the distributor using an infra-red light pen connected to a computer. The SAILOR 4065 EPIRBs are supplied with a fully enclosed automatic float free housing which allows it to be self-tested while in the housing. For non GMDSS use the unit can be supplied in a quick release bulkhead mounting bracket. Once removed from its mounting bracket, activation happens automatically by immersion of the water or manually by a protected push button on the top of the EPIRB. An additional self-test button runs a short diagnostic check and indicates that the EPIRB is ready for use. The specially designed wall bracket prevents unintentional activation in carry-off situations
