ACR 2848 GlobalFix iPro Cat II EPIRB Manual Release with LCD Digital Display

This EPIRB is programmed for registration in Canada

NEW FEATURES: Send I'm OK Messages. Increase the functionality of your beacon with optional non-emergency messaging service.

The GlobalFixTM iPRO Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) is the next generation in marine safety electronics. The GlobalFixTM PRO is a breakthrough product that boasts a digital display and dual GPS technology.

GlobalFixTM iPRO sports a digital display that allows you to see all of the beacon's operational activities. The screen displays GPS LAT/LON, operating instructions, usage tips, transmission bursts as well as battery power.

iPRO makes self-testing your beacon simple and easy to understand with the digital display visually walking you through the self test step by step, no more relying on listening to beeps and LEDs.

The GlobalFixTM iPRO is also the first EPIRB that offers Dual GPS Technology. Interface your iPRO to your onboard GPS to ensure that your LAT/LON is stored inside so the coordinates are transmitted in the first data burst. iPRO's internal GPS is optimized for cold starts and is tested and refined at ACR's GPS Simulation Center so that it will pinpoint your exact location faster than standard GPS enabled EPIRBs.

GlobalFixTM iPRO offers the very latest in marine electronic life-saving technology:
  • Highly visible LED strobe - Energy efficient
  • High-efficiency electronics - Performance you can count on
  • Non-hazardous batteries - No shipping hassles
  • Professional grade design - Engineered, tested and built for years of abusive marine use
  • Ergonomic, compact design; Smallest feature rich EPIRB available
External GPS interface requirements: In order to be compatible with the GlobalFixTM iPRO, an external GPS receiver must provide location information according to the following requirements:
  • NMEA 0183, Version 1.5 or higher
  • Baud rate: 4800
  • Talker device identifier: GP (GPS Receiver)
  • Sentence format: GGA (GPS Fix Data)
NOTE: All of the PLB and EPIRB products sold by The Binnacle are Canadian coded and require registration with the government of Canada's online Canadian Beacon Registry System. See Requirements Tab for more information on how to register.

It is mandatory for all Canadian 406 MHz ELTs, PLB's and EPIRBs to be registered with the Canadian Beacon Registry. Ensuring that your 406 MHz PLB, ELT or EPIRB is registered, as well as updating the information regularly, will facilitate the task for search and rescue personnel in the event of a distress situation.

If you have a registered emergency beacon, it is important that the information be accurate. Please update the information in the registry:

  • if you move
  • if you want to update the emergency contact information
  • if your phone number changes, or
  • if any of the important information in the registry changes such as colour of vessel or aircraft.

Online access to the Canadian Beacon Registry is available to all 406 MHz emergency beacon owners to register new emergency beacons or to update their current information. You can add or update your emergency beacon information online, by faxing or emailing a completed registration form, or by speaking with a representative:

by email: 
by fax: 1-877-406-FAX8 (3298)
by telephone: 1-877-406-SOS1 (7671)
