Difference between epirb and sart

Temperatures in the wild and offshore can become extreme, and you want a device that can operate over a wide range of temperatures. That way, you can rely on it even if you find yourself stranded in a place with extreme temperatures.

Most personal locator devices intended for recreational purposes are equipped with class two batteries and can transmit for 24 hours in -20°F temperatures. Class one PLBs are equipped with heavy-duty batteries that can transmit for 24 hours at -40° F.

Even in the case of a personal locator beacon for strictly land use, such as a hiking beacon, it is inevitable that it will come into contact with water and water resistance is an essential feature. The level of water resistance is generally expressed as an IPX rating. An IPX1 rating means that the device is only resistant to vertical drops. An IPX7 rating means the device can be submerged in up to three feet of water. IPX8 is the highest water resistance rating and an IPX8 rated device will remain waterproof in more than three feet of water.

What frequencies can an Epirb use?

It is a radioelectric equipment that when activated emits, using the 406 MHz frequency, a distress alert through the Cospas-Sarsat satellites. It should be used only in situations of grave and imminent danger. How is it activated? The EPIRB can be activated automatically or manually.

What happens when the ELT is activated?

When an ELT is activated, the information is received by the satellites and managed by the COSPAS-SAR- SAT program, which has a network of satellites and ground stations (Local Users Terminals).

EPIRB for locating casualty radio beacons

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 serious and imminent 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.
