McMurdo, a business of the Orolia Group, will be exhibiting the new Fast Find 220 PLB (Personal Locator Beacon) at the PSP Southampton Boat Show, from the 14th to the 23rd September 2012. This will be the first time that PLB has been displayed at a public boat show since its launch in May.
The Fast Find 220 satellite PLB is a 406 MHz GPS emergency beacon with GPS as standard, enabling a typical positional accuracy of +/- 62m. The 220 also has retro reflective detailing for improved visibility in low light, a six year battery storage life and float pouch included as standard.
A powerful distress beacon, the Fast Find 220 provides a direct method of alerting the search and rescue authorities where no other forms of communication are available. As well as sending out a distress signal by satellite, the 220 also transmits a 121.5 MHz homing signal.
Waterproof to 10 metres and able to operate in temperatures as low as -20˚, once activated, using a simple three-stage activation, the 220 will transmit continuously for a minimum of 24 hours at a powerful 5 watt output.
