How epirb works

An EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon) is used as a distress alert system, indicating to SAR authorities the identity and position of a person or vessel, which is in imminent and grave danger and requires immediate assistance.

Self-activating EPIRBs are used on SOLAS vessels, e.g. a passenger ship, cargo ships or oil tankers. They are supplied in a plastic enclosure in which the sea switch of the EPIRB is deactivated. The plastic enclosure contains a spring loaded lever which automatically pushes the enclosure lid and releases the EPIRB if the vessel sinks. This automatic ejection is controlled by a device called a Hydrostatic Release Unit (HRU) which automatically releases the EPIRB when a depth of approximately 4-5 m is reached. Then, the EPIRB floats to the sea surface and activates the sea switch.
