CR Electronics' New ResQLink PLB-425 is the smallest and lightest PLB on the market. The necessary rescheduling is included in the price.
With its small dimensions 11.48 cm x 5.16 cm x 3.78 cm and the weight of just 148 grams, the new PLB ResQLink is pocket like a mobile phone.
Compared to the old PLB-375 ResQLink, the new PLB-425 ResQLink has been tested and made compatible with the new MEOSAR satellite system.
Despite its very small size, the brand new PLB from ACR Electronics has great peculiarities.
When activated, the PLB is able to transmit a distress signal on the digital frequency 406 Mhz. On this frequency the artificial satellites that make up the international backbone of the COSPAS / SARSAT system are constantly listened to, the same system that monitors the other emergency beacons such as aeronautical ELTs or nautical EPIRBs. As the latest generation PLB, the ResQLink includes a very powerful 66-channel GPS receiver.
The presence of the GPS receiver, a function also implemented on the previous ACR Electronics PLB models, allows the position of the PLB (and therefore of the person requesting help) to be fixed with absolute precision without having to triangulate the signal transmitted to the satellites.
The ResQLink is able to transmit the emergency signal with great power: 5 watts, which allows it to cross thick layers of cloud formations, or forest coverings, without problems.
Being a PLB the ResQLink is activated manually after having completely extracted the antenna. The distress signal is transmitted immediately after pressing the side trigger for one second, when it is detected by the opening of the folded antenna such as around the body of the unit. When the ResQLink PLB is activated, the small strobe light inserted in the body of the device. Such strobe light is visible in the dark at several cities of meters. In addition to the digital frequency 406 Mhz, that is the international emergency frequency, the PLB is also transmitted in "homing" or using the old 121.5 Mhz emergency frequency.
The transmission at 121.5 Mhz, an obsolete emergency frequency and no longer monitored for several years, takes place at very low power, allowing signal propagation only with a range limited to a few kilometers. This short-range transmission is precisely defined "homing. ". The reason for all this lies in the fact that SAR (Search And Rescue) helicopters or certain ground rescue teams still use radio direction finders capable of tracking and identifying 121.5 Mhz only.
Like all ACR Electronics PLBs, the ResQLink is perfectly waterproof and resists submersion to 5 meters for 1 hour. It also floats autonomously in both fresh and salt water.
The PLB is made in the USA and directly imported from us. The PLB is recoded according to the customer's nationality. However, we can carry out the encoding of the PLB with any nationality, excluding those that do not yet recognize the PLB as an emergency beacon that can be associated with EPIRBs or ELTs.
The coding of the PLB is included in the price. Given its extreme versatility, the PLB can be used anywhere in the world (COSPAS / SARSAT coverage is global) and in multiple activities and fields of action: aeronautics, boating, outdoor etc.
The PLB has no additional costs, no subscriptions, no registration fees at COSPAS / SARSAT.
It is necessary to replace the lithium battery individually or if the PLB has been activated.
