The ACR AquaLink 350B PLB is a buoyant, handheld, GPS-enabled rescue beacon which is small enough to be easily carried in a back-pack or pocket, or worn on a life vest.
The ACR PLB Key Features:
Upon initiation of a distress call, the ACR AquaLink 350 PLB's onboard GPS will fix your position to within 100 meters and then utilizes a powerful 406 MHz signal to relay your distress call to orbiting satellites.As local Search and Rescue is deployed, a separate homing signal and integrated LED strobe light guide rescuers to your exact location. The ACR AquaLink 350B PLB broadcasts a unique registered distress signal that not only tells rescuers where you are, but who you are.
ACR PLB have been proven, tried and tested in some of the world's most remote locations and treacherous conditions. Even in extreme conditions and situations, the ACR AquaLink 350B PLB activates easily.
Just deploy the antenna and press the ON button. With its powerful 66-channel GPS, the ACR AquaLink 350B PLB guides rescuers to within 100 meters or less of your position. Search and rescue personnel can be alerted of your position in as little as five minutes.
Unlike most satellite enabled notification devices, the ACR AquaLink 350B PLB requires no monthly or annual subscription, making it one of the most cost effective GPS enabled emergency beacons available for long term use. In the unfortunate event of needing to use your ACR PLB, ACR will replace it, free of charge. Simply submit your story, send your used beacon back to them so they can have it mounted on their Wall of Fame and they'll send you a brand new personal locator beacon of equal or greater value.

The AquaLink PLB is buoyant and Waterproof for up to an hour in 5 metres, or 10 minutes in 10 metres of water.
Registering your Personal Locator Beacon is required by law in most countries. Registering is very important because should your beacon ever be activated, it is how Search and Rescue Teams will know who you are, and contacts provided may be able to supply information about your specific travel plans. In the absence of this information, it may take longer for a search-and-rescue operation to begin.
All Personal Locator Beacons sold by GTC are pre-programmed with the UK country code. Whilst they will function anywhere around the world, the first authority to be contacted in an emergency situation would be the UK Coastguard Agency in Falmouth with whom the PLB would be registered. Please contact us if you wish to have your PLB shipped with configuration for use in a country other than UK.
Performing a full functional self-test of the PLB's internal circuitry, battery voltage & power and 406 MHz transmission gives you the peace of mind knowing your PLB will work the moment you need it the most. ACR Exclusive: Built-in GPS acquisition test mode allows you to test GPS functionality up to 12 times over the life of the battery.
This ACR AquaLink 350B PLB should only be used in situations of grave and imminent danger to life. False alerts endanger lives and cause expensive disruption to Search & Rescue services. Deliberate misuse of the device could result in a penalty.
Please note that PLBs will not work underwater and should be used in a canister if you intend to carry at a depth exceeding the maximum depth stated in the technical specification.
