The MT603FG is the most advanced MEOSAR-ready 406MHz digital EPIRB on the market today.
Designed, engineered and manufactured in Australia, the MT603FG has obtained international Cospas-Sarsat approval. Boasting the latest advances in emergency beacon technology, the MT603FG ensures the safety of your vessel and crew in emergency situations, regardless of your location.
The MT603FG is a Category 1 EPIRB, which means the unit will automatically deploy from the supplied ‘Float-Free’ housing via a hydrostatic release unit at a depth of 1.5 – 4 metres, with the beacon activating upon contact with water. The EPIRB may also be manually removed from the housing and activated by the user.
The MT603FG features an integrated 66 channel GPS receiver, delivering greater position accuracy and faster location fix than previous models. Boasting zero warm-up digital technology, the MT603FG acquires and transmits accurate latitude/ longitude and personal identification information to rescue authorities as soon as possible. In combination with a high-intensity, solid state strobe light and auxiliary 121.5MHz VHF homing transmitter, the MT603FG is the ultimate in emergency beacon technology.
