The ACR GlobalFix V5 AIS EPIRB Manual Release Bracket with AIS and RLS is the ultimate safety companion for mariners. This innovative emergency beacon combines cutting-edge technology with a comprehensive feature set to ensure rapid and efficient rescue operations in times of distress.

The GlobalFix V5 AIS EPIRB is equipped with an Automatic Identification System (AIS) alert, providing an unparalleled pathway to rescue. When activated, it transmits your emergency signal to the Cospas Sarsat satellite rescue system. In addition, it broadcasts an AIS safety message on VHF frequencies. This message can be immediately detected by nearby AIS-equipped vessels, significantly enhancing the chances of being quickly located and rescued.

Furthermore, the GlobalFix V5 features Return Link Service (RLS) functionality. This unique service provides direct confirmation to your beacon that your distress message has been received. When the Galileo satellite network sends an RLS signal back to your EPIRB, a conspicuous flashing blue light lets you know that rescuers are aware of your situation and its precise location. This assurance significantly reduces stress and uncertainty that often accompany emergency situations.

Incorporating Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, the GlobalFix V5 allows seamless smartphone connectivity. Simply place your smartphone adjacent to the beacon and you can access valuable data and interact with the product in ways never before possible. The dedicated ACR Product App grants access to critical information, such as current battery life, completed self-tests, GNSS test results, and activation duration. Detailed test records, including maps displaying previous test locations, further enhance your understanding of the beacon's performance. With NFC-enabled connectivity, monitoring the status of your EPIRB becomes effortless, ensuring optimal functionality when you need it most.
