Every year, thousands of people across the globe are rescued with the help of an emergency beacon, and more than 50% of Australian rescues involve a GME emergency beacon.
A Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is an important piece of safety equipment which could help save your life should you ever find yourself in an emergency.
Compact, Lightweight Design - The MT610G PLB has been designed with a strong focus on being as compact and light weight as possible, while not compromising on ease-of-use in an emergency.
Built-in GPS Receiver - The MT610G PLB features a built-in 72 channel GPS Receiver, ensuring fast transmission of accurate location information to rescue authorities. A distress signal transmitted by the MT610G will generally be received by rescue authorities in less than 15 minutes, with location accuracy of <150m.
Simple Emergency Activation - The MT610G PLB has been designed and engineered to ensure simple and efficient activation in an emergency. The MT610G can even be activated with one hand.
IP68 Ingress Protection - The MT610G PLB features an IP68 Ingress Protection rating. This means that the PLB is completely dustproof and waterproof and can be submerged in water to a depth of 10m for up to 1 hour, ensuring the beacon is always ready to go when required.
7 Year Battery Life - The MT610G PLB offers a 7 year battery life from the date of manufacture, marked on the bottom of the beacon. At any time within the battery life period, the beacon will transmit for a minimum of 24hours once activated.
Cospas-Sarsat Certified (Class 2) - The MT610G PLB is Cospas-Sarsat Certified (Class 2) and meets all applicable Australian and New Zealand Standards.
Inherently Buoyant - The MT610G PLB is inherently buoyant which means the beacon will float in water, without the aid of an external flotation device, unlike some other PLBs on the market.
