The MT403FF is a Category 1 EPIRB, which means the unit will automatically deploy from the supplied ‘Float-Free’ housing via a hydrostatic release unit at a depth of 1.5 – 4 metres, with the beacon activating upon contact with water. The EPIRB may also be manually removed from the housing and activated by the user.
Using the same innovative technology that produced the MT400 and revolutionised the EPIRB world, the MT403FF now offers commercial vessel operators the same GME performance and value enjoyed by recreational boaters.
Advantages of a 406 MHz EPIRB over the older analogue EPIRBs include worldwide coverage, position location accuracy to within 5 kms, and a more stable transmitted signal resulting in faster response time.
Most importantly, the addition of a unique digitally coded message provides Search and Rescue authorities with vital information including the country of beacon registration and identification of the vessel in distress, thus greatly reducing the incidence of false alerts and unnecessary deployment of valuable rescue resources.
