The Safelink Pro 406 MHz Personal Location Beacon (PLB) with integral GPS and unique 48 hour operational life is as satellite based Personal carry on emergency location beacon used as a last resort safeguard against possible life threatening incidents, anywhere in the world. Safelink Pro PLB works on the global COSPAS SARSAT 406 MHz search and rescue satellite system (www.cospas-sarsat.org). The system is supported by international government search and rescue authorities around the world, so a call for help will be acted upon and fast. Once activated the Safelink Pro PLB transmits a unique identification signal along with your current position via the COSPAS SARSAT search and rescue satellite system on 406 MHz. The signal is then quickly passed to regional search and rescue authorities who can rapidly get to the scene.
The Safelink Pro PLB is registered to the individual, meaning that the unique identification signal is registered to you with your personal details, registration with each national EPIRB Registry is simple and cost free and further more there are no subscription fees to pay. Safelink Pro brings added dimensions to safety, once activated, Safelink Pro’s 406 MHz signal will continue to transmit for at least 48 hours at temperatures as low as -20°c.

The integral high accuracy GPS provides an accurate position, typically +/- 62 metres along with new position updates every 20 minutes for fast recovery. Safelink Pro also features a 121.5MHz homing signal to further assist with local recovery.
