DISTRESS BEACONS

KANNAD 406: dual frequency EPIRBs

The Auto version comes in a compact container with an automatic release system, which releases the beacon when immersed between 1 and 4 metres.
The most important -and safety essential- benefit is that a 406 MHz beacon features an embedded code containing your boats identification, which enables the rescue operators on the ground to identify immediately the boat or person in need of assistance. This beacon can be spotted anywhere in the world and at any time. In addition, the 121.5 MHz aircraft frequency provides a homing frequency in the final phase or rescue search.

The Kannad beacons with an integral GPS receiver provide a higher precision and a faster detection time than the location already supplied by the 406 MHz frequency
Top performance and compact beacons for use on board professional and recreational boats.

•Reinforced buoyancy ensures good stability and optimum signal transmision, even in rough seas.
•Fitted with a flash light for increased visibility
•A TCXO oscillator allows instant use, right from cold start and optimises energy saving.
•No-screw innovating construction to make maintenance easier.
