ACR AquaLink View
The The ACR AquaLink 350C View PLB relays your position to a worldwide network of Search and Rescue satellites in the event of an emergency. AquaLink's digital display allows you to test the device as well as check on your co-ordinates and battery power.
The ACR AquaLink 350C View PLB features three levels of signal technology - GPS positioning, 406MHz signal and 121.5 MHz homing capability. These technologies work together to relay co-ordinates accurate to within 100 metres to worldwide emergency services.
An LED strobe light helps you attract attention once rescue services arrive.
Unlike many other PLBs, the ACR AquaLink 350C View PLB features a digital display - this gives you peace of mind as it allows you to check on battery life and view your GPS latitude and longitude. It also makes testing the device much easier as on screen instructions guide you through the process - testing PLBs without a screen means relying on a series of beeps.
Unlike most satellite enabled notification devices, the ACR AquaLink 350C View 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 PLB, ACR will replace it, free of charge. Simply submit your story, send your used personal locator 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!
Registering your Personal Locator Beacon is required by law in most countries. Registering is very important because should your PLB 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.
This ACR 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.
