SIMRAD EG70 GPS-EPIRB - Manually Activated
SIMRAD EG70 AUTO is designed to automatically release and activate in case of an emergency where the EPIRB and its bracket is submerged into the sea. Simrad EG70 MAN is operated as a manual EPIRB, by manually releasing it from its bracket and then activating it.
The manual bracket comes without the hydrostatic release mechanism and is used to store the beacon inside the wheelhouse or other protected places.
SIMRAD EG70 gives a primary alarm to the search and rescue authorities. The EPIRB gives an immediate alarm when activated, transmitting the ID of the ship in distress. Care must be taken not to activate the EPIRB unless in an emergency situation, in such cases the user will be held responsible. For periodic testing a test function is implemented. During the test cycle the EPIRB does a self-test on the transmitters and on the battery status. No emergency signal is transmitted during the self-test.
The battery of the EPIRB will last for at least 48 hours from activation of the EPIRB.
