EPIRB & PLB
Looking for an EPIRB or PLB?
EPIRBS (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons) and PLBs (Personal Locator Beacons) are the ultimate safety devices.
EPIRBs and PLBs are radio beacons that communicate with the worldwide offered service of Cospas-Sarsat, the international satellite system for search and rescue (SAR). When manually activated, or automatically activated upon immersion, these beacons send out a distress signal. The signals are monitored worldwide and the location of the distress is detected by non-geostationary satellites, and can be located by trilateration.Show More...
EPIRBs signal maritime distress while PLBs are for personal use and are intended to indicate a person in distress. For more information see the Beacons website.
GME is an Australian privately owned company that have been in operation for over 50 years in Australia and 20 years in New Zealand. GME is the most popular maker of PLBs and EPIRBs in New Zealand. We like them because they offer a 6 year warranty on their EPIRBs and a 7 year warranty on their PLBs. And the warranty is still valid if the beacon is activated!
Note: The key benefits of a GPS equipped EPIRB are faster detection by the Geostationary Satellites, typically less than 10 minutes anywhere in Australia or New Zealand and accuracy of the beacon’s position as it transmits the latitude and longitude coordinates as part of the emergency message. The search area is about a 100 meter radius.
