Globalfix iPRO
w/ Dual GPS Technology - Innovative Digital Display

Category 1

The all-new GlobalFix™ iPRO Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) is the next generation in marine safety electronics. The GlobalFix™ iPRO is a breakthrough product that boasts a digital display and dual GPS technology.

GlobalFix™ iPRO sports a digital display that allows you to see all of the beacon's operational activities. The screen displays GPS LAT/LON, operating instructions, usage tips, transmission bursts as well as battery power. iPRO makes self-testing your beacon simple and easy to understand with the digital display visually walking you through the self-test step by step, no more relying on listening to beeps and LEDs.

The GlobalFix™ iPRO is also the first EPIRB that offers Dual GPS Technology. Interface your iPRO to your onboard GPS to ensure that your LAT/LON is stored inside so the coordinates are transmitted in the first data burst. iPRO's internal GPS is optimized for cold starts and is tested and refined at ACR's GPS Simulation Center so that it will pin point your exact location faster than standard GPS enabled EPIRBs.

EPIRBs and PLBs: How Do They Differ?

  • EPIRBs float in an upright position to transmit (perform best when floating).
  • PLBs float so they won’t get lost. Need to be held out of the water or mounted high on your PFD for best transmission.
  • EPIRBs transmit for 48 hours minimum at temperatures as low as –40ºC. Some EPIRBs transmit 48 hours at –20ºC.
  • PLBs transmit for 24 hours minimum at temperatures down to –20ºC.
  • EPIRBs can be manually activated in or out of their bracket or automatically activated when out of the bracket and in the water.
  • PLBs are manually activated.
  • EPIRBs have a strobe light.
  • PLBs have no strobe, therefore keep a strobe on your life vest.
  • EPIRBs are designed to be mounted in a bracket or carried in a ditch bag.
  • PLBs are designed to be worn or carried on your person.
  • EPIRBs have two different types of brackets. Category I bracket will automatically deploy the beacon should the bracket be submerged between 4 and 13 ft. Category II bracket is manual deployment. Category I can be manually deployed also.
  • EPIRBs are legal for use on a navigable waterway.
  • PLBs are legal for use on land, in the air and water.
  • EPIRBs are registered to the vessel.
  • PLBs are registered to the person and are legal to be used on land as well as water.
  • Both EPIRBs and PLBs transmit on 406 MHz and 121.5 MHz (406 for satellite communication and 121.5 for local homing).
  • Both EPIRBs and PLBs have the ability to add GPS LAT/LON to their distress message to speed the start of a rescue. This can be accomplished with an internal GPS receiver or by interfacing with an external GPS receiver. Some beacons have both internal and interfacing capabilities.
  • Both EPIRBs and PLBs are required to be registered with NOAA. Make sure to log onto www.beaconregistration.noaa.gov – it’s quick, easy and free.
  • Your registration can be updated daily. Nobody sees the information unless the beacon is activated. Use the “Additional Info” field to supply rescuers with any information that will help them help you. (i.e. float plan, number of persons onboard, known health issues, allergies to medicine, etc.) Some beacon owners have added a web address in this field so rescuers can see a picture of their boat.
