Sept. 3, 2009 – ACR Electronics introduces its newest generation of Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs) – the SARLink™ 406 MHz GPS PLB.

The SARLink™, which recently received FCC approval, features a new
strobe light function and multi-use GPS acquisition testing.  The
SARLink™ represents one of the smallest, lightest 406 GPS PLBs in the
world. The rugged, one-button activated, emergency signaling device is
perfect for
outdoor enthusiasts heading into remote areas and private pilots looking for a reliable, personal 406 MHz emergency transmitter.

The SARLink™ has all new high performance features such as:

  • Built-in, super bright LED strobe light increases visibility to Search and Rescue.
  • Onboard
    66-channel parallel GPS acquires then transmits LAT/LON when the unit
    is activated, dramatically saving valuable time for the distress
    message to reach local rescue centers, and provide rescue agencies with
    exact position to within 110 yards (100 meters).
  • In addition
    to full functional self testing of internal circuitry, battery voltage
    and power, the SARLink™ allows for an increased number of long GPS
    acquisition tests—up to 12 times per life of battery.
  • More efficient design uses less power, making it smaller and lighter.

Suggested MSRP for the SARLink™ is $499.00.
