Fastfind 406 PLB
Fastfind PLB 82-826-004A

The smallest and lightest Personal Location Beacon in the world The Fastfind standard 406MHz Personal Location Beacon has all the features of the Fastfind Plus but without GPS. The 406MHz frequency provides an alert signal to the rescue services within 90 minutes maximum, depending on satellite passes and gives a positional accuracy within 3nm. Once in the vicinity the 121.5MHz transmitter provides a signal for the rescue services to home-in on. This information is more than sufficient to enable rescue services to find a vessel or individual in distress particularly if equipped with flares and lifejacket light.

The Fastfind Plus and Fastfind Personal Location Beacons feature the same advanced technology as found in the award winning Rescue and Precision 406 GPS EPIRBs. Designed using miniaturized components to fit into an aesthetically styled compact casing both versions employ a simple three-stage manual operation and feature user replaceable battery packs, which are available for use in temperatures of -4 and -40 degrees Fahrenheit. Carrying the Fastfind could not be simpler, there are a number of easy fixing options which either come as standard or as optional extras. Bother versions are supplied with a lanyard and designer carry case to enable the user to keep the PLB safely attached at all times.
