Show Description

If things go abruptly sideways, this is the ace you want in your pocket. Activation is simple: deploy the antenna and press the ON button. The ResQLink 400 uses a 66-channel GPS to calculate your position within 100 metres. Transmitting on 406Mhz to the MEOSAR satellite constellation. The beacon also broadcasts a local signal on 121.5 MHz that searchers can pinpoint once they're in your vicinity.

No paid subscription is required. The only additional expense is replacing the battery every 5 years. If you need to use the ResQLink 400, ACR will replace it with a PLB of equal or greater value in return for the old beacon and your rescue story.

  • Broadcasts SOS to government funded satellite networks, so there is no monthly fee.
  • Transmits a unique beacon identifier that you register with the Rescue Coordination Centre. This registration speeds up response time and lets SAR teams know what to look for.
  • MEOSAR compatibility means faster response time, an average of 46 minutes faster than previous LEOSAR beacons.
  • Simple 1-button operation is easy to in the worst conditions, just release the antenna and push the on/off button.
  • 66-channel GPS signal guides rescuers within 100m of your location (GPS and Galileo networks), the homing frequency and strobe bring them the rest of the way.
  • UV resistant, durable polycarbonate composite housing.
  • A built-in LED strobe and IR strobe help rescuers on final approach at night or in low visibility.
  • Batteries are tested for a ~24 hour runtime at -20°C, are good for a total of 60 self-tests/20 GPS tests, and last for 5 years on standby. Batteries should be replaced after emergency use.

  • Approvals: COSPAS-SARSAT, FCC Canada, AMSA and RED
