The rescueME EPIRB1 provides peace of mind with an impressive 10 year battery life. The world’s most compact EPIRB can always be on hand, as its small size allows it to be easily retained within its quick release bracket or placed in an emergency grab-bag or life raft.

EPIRB1-dimentionsA simple protective tab over the operating keys prevents inadvertent activation, yet allows for easy operation when required. The rescueME EPIRB1 also features two high brightness strobes to maximise visibility in low light conditions.

The retractable antenna provides maximum protection and a reduced outline for stowage. When required the antenna is easily deployed with a gentle pull.

For longer offshore or ocean passages, the Ocean Signal EPIRB1 Pro offers an automatic release housing (mandatory for vessels approved under SOLAS regulations).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When I register my EPIRB or PLB is the 0 in the 15 digit HEX ID (UIN) the number 0, or the letter O?

The HEX ID consists of the numbers from 0 to 9 and the letters from A to F only. The character 0 is the number zero.

Disposal of of EPIRBs and PLBs

Care should be taken when disposing of your PLB or EPIRB when it is no longer required.  False alerts from discarded beacons can cause rescue authorities to expend much time and effort in locating discarded EPIRBs or PLBs that have accidentally activated.  Please ensure that care is taken to completely deactivate the beacon and advise the registration authority that the beacon is no longer in service.

It is recommended to remove the battery from the beacon by removing the case lid.  Dispose of the battery in accordance with local waste regulations.  Please note that Ocean Signal beacons are not user serviceable and removing the lid will invalidate the warranty.
