The MT403 Series also includes a water activation feature. Once it has been removed from its mounting bracket, the MT403 will activate automatically on immersion in water. Of course you can also activate it manually if required.
Advantages of a 406 MHZ EPIRB over the older analogue EPIRBs include, worldwide coverage, position location accuracy to within 5 kms and a more stable transmitted signal resulting in faster response time. Most importantly, the addition of a unique digitally coded message provides Search and Rescue authorities with vital information including the country of beacon registration and identification of the vessel in distress, thus greatly reducing the incidence of false alerts and unnecessary deployment of valuable rescue resources.
An auxiliary homing transmitter is included in the MT403 Series to enable suitably equipped Search and Rescue vessels to home in on the distress beacon.
