The new Safelink Pro Personal Location Beacon (PLB) brings added dimensions to safety with a minimum 48 hour operational battery life at temperatures as low as -20°c. Safelink Pro battery packs have a five year storage life and are user replaceable.
The Safelink Pro PLB is a compact and rugged palm-sized unit designed to be carried by individuals as a last resort safeguard against any life threatening incidents that may occur anywhere in the world. Whether alone or within a group, on holiday, at work, carrying out your sport or hobby, if you ever find yourself in a remote area without any other form of communication, the Safelink Pro PLB comes into its own.
Once activated it transmits a unique identification signal along with your current position via the international search and rescue satellite system operated by COSPAS-SARSAT on 406 MHz. The call for help is then quickly passed to regional search and rescue authorities who can rapidly get to the scene.
Safelink Pro is waterproof to 10m and designed to withstand the harshest of environments while still being extremely easy to operate and small enough to carry with you at all times.
Safelink Pro PLB has a unique discreet antenna deployment system with simple three-stage, manual operation to prevent any risk of accidental or false activation. In its stored state, the antenna is completely hidden from view and fully protected against rough handling. Once deployed, the antenna automatically springs into the optimum position ready for use.
The Safelink Pro’s integral 16 channel GPS receiver gives a typical positional accuracy of +/- 62 metres and new position updates every 20 minutes, significantly reducing the normal search area down from a 28sq nm area, when given a clear view skyward.
