Product Description


ACR GlobalFix V5 is the most advanced Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) available, combining 406 MHz satellite connectivity with Automatic Identification System (AIS) functionality. This means that when the EPIRB is activated, not only does it transmit your emergency signal to the global Cospas Sarsat satellite rescue system, it also broadcasts an AIS safety message on VHF frequencies that can be seen immediately by any AIS equipped vessel nearby.

In addition, GlobalFix V5's Return Link Service notifies whoever triggers the EPIRB that the distress message has been delivered by sending a RLS signal back through the Galileo satellite network. This confirms that the distress message, along with the precise beacon location and identifiers, have been detected. An easy to see flashing blue light indicates the EPIRB's successful reception of the Return Link message from the Galileo satellite network. This Return Link Service provides a calming sense of security, as the user will know that the distress message has been received.

The EPIRB accurately derives its position anywhere in the world using GNSS (GPS, Galileo, Glonass) positioning networks. When the EPIRB is activated, 406 MHz distress transmissions relay the GPS EPIRB (GPIRB) position (accurate within 100 metres) to the worldwide Cospas Sarsat search and rescue satellite network. EPIRB identifiers and position information is then relayed to ground stations through the satellite system, initiating rescue operations.

Thanks to the advanced AIS technology incorporated into the EPIRP; once activated, an AIS signal is transmitted, so that nearby vessels outfitted with an AIS transponder are instantly notified of the boat's beacon location. AIS equipped vessels within VHF range of the beacon will see a safety message on their screens, including MMSI vessel identification. Furthermore, vessels in the area where the EPIRB has been activated can then start rescue and recovery operations immediately, without having to wait for emergency response from the applicable SAR authority.

AIS also allows local responders to easily pinpoint the EPIRB's location, which is presented as an AIS target on their onboard display. Nearby vessels with onboard AIS can navigate directly to the EPIRB by selecting the AIS target.

Another new feature is Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, which allows users to access EPIRB diagnostics using their smartphones. When a smartphone is placed adjacent to the GlobalFix V5, the ACR app automatically opens, providing access to the beacons data. Beacon status information available in the app includes the current battery life, number of self-tests completed, number of GNSS tests completed, and the amount of time the EPIRB has been activated.

Also available is detailed information on each self-test, and GNSS test performed. GNSS tests show a map view that pinpoints where the previous test was performed, the date and time of the test, how long it took the EPIRB to get a fix on the GNSS coordinates, the number of satellites used to obtain that fix and the accuracy of the fix. Easy App connectivity with NFC also allows users to easily check the status of all EPIRB functions to ensure that it is working properly.
