ACR 2831.63 GlobalFix V4 EPIRB Category 2

This EPIRB is programmed for registration in Canada
Once activated, the GlobalFix™ V4's robust internal GPS pinpoints your precise location and broadcasts it to Search an Rescue forces worldwide using a powerful 406 MHz distress signal. When no GPS data is available, Cospas-Sarsat satellites can triangulate your position using just the 406 MHz signal. A 121.5 MHz homing signal also directs searchers to your position.
The GlobalFix V4 is a full-featured EPIRB loaded with dependable, high-efficiency electronics, such as an internal 66 Channel GPS for faster acquisition from a cold start. A protective keypad cover helps eliminate false startups, and the new, simple user-replaceable battery pack has a 10-year replacement interval - reducing the overall cost of ownership.
The system has two functional self-tests to monitor the beacon's transmission, power and battery performance and GPS acquisition. You can also access ACR's optional testing portal (available for the Americas only) and receive satellite confirmation messages straight to your cell phone or email.
  • Simple manual activation - Keypad with a protective cover to prevent false alarms
  • Internal 66 Channel GPS - Faster acquisition from a cold start
  • High-efficiency electronics - Performance you can depend on
  • Professional grade design - Engineered, tested and built for years of use in harsh environments
  • Highly visible LED strobe - Energy efficient
  • User-replaceable battery - 10-Year battery life
  • Includes Manual Deployment Bracket
NOTE: Category II beacons are designed to be manually deployed from the bracket and then activated manually or placed in the water to activate automatically. Two conditions must be met for a Category II beacon to automatically activate: It must be removed out of its bracket. And, It must be wet (i.e. placed in the water). Either condition, by itself, will not automatically activate the beacon.

NOTE: All PLB and EPIRB products sold by The Binnacle are Canadian UIN Coded and require registration with 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, and EPIRBs to be registered with the Canadian Beacon Registry.

Ensuring that your 406 MHz PLB, ELT or EPIRB is registered and 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 the vessel's or aircraft's colour.
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)
