The ACR ResQLink AIS Personal Locator Beacon is the ultimate safety companion for mariners. Keep yourself protected and safe on the open seas with this award-winning personal locator beacon (PLB) from ACR, the trusted name in rescue devices and life-saving products. Tailored for both professional and recreational use, this compact and advanced emergency beacon offers superior features to ensure your safety and expedite rescue operations.

Unmatched Rescue Capabilities

The ResQLink AIS is the world's first PLB to incorporate both Automatic Identification System (AIS) and Near Field Communication (NFC) technologies, in addition to the standard satellite notification through the renowned Cospas Sarsat rescue system. With AIS, you receive instant local notification, enabling faster response times during emergencies. NFC technology ensures your beacon is functioning correctly and allows easy access to all functions and records via your smartphone.

Global Positioning Accuracy

Powered by GNSS (GPS, Galileo, Glonass) technology, the ResQLink AIS offers precise positioning anywhere in the world. Combined with 406 MHz satellite connectivity, you can rely on its reliable service to transmit your distress signal globally, with your location accurate to within 100 meters. To assist search and rescue teams further, the PLB emits a 121.5 MHz homing signal, guiding them to your current location even if you have drifted from the initial transmission point.

Enhanced Beacon Visibility

Swift rescue operations depend on clear visibility. The ResQLink AIS features an innovative design that incorporates both visible and infrared strobes. These powerful strobes ensure rescuers can locate you quickly and efficiently, even during nighttime or low-visibility situations.

Seamless Smartphone Connectivity

With Near Field Communication (NFC) integration, the ResQLink AIS allows you to effortlessly access beacon data using your mobile phone. Simply place your phone near the beacon to automatically open the ACR Product App, granting you access to valuable usage information. Stay informed about battery life, self-test history, GNSS performance, and activation duration. Detailed reports on each self-test and GNSS test are readily available, providing you with a comprehensive understanding of your beacon's performance.

Return Link Service (RLS)

The ResQLink AIS incorporates Return Link Service (RLS) functionality. This vital feature ensures you receive confirmation that your distress message has been received and your location has been detected by the Coast Guard. When a signal is sent back through the Galileo satellite network, a flashing blue light on the PLB signifies successful message transmission. This confirmation eases the stress associated with Man Overboard incidents, knowing that rescuers are aware of your situation.

Seamless Integration with Personal Flotation Devices (PFD)

Designed for easy installation, the ResQLink AIS is compatible with life jackets and activates automatically upon jacket inflation (semi-automatic mode). Installing the beacon within your life jacket is a breeze using the included oral inflation tube clip, which attaches the PLB securely to the jacket. The antenna deploys and the beacon activates when the life jacket inflates. If preferred, users can utilize the included webbing clip to attach the beacon to an appropriately sized belt or the webbing of an inherently buoyant life jacket.
