The Smartfind G8 Manual beacon is an emergency device, designed to be used in maritime emergencies. Upon activation, it will send an alert signal to the COSPAS-SARSAT satellite set, this signal will be received and decoded by the nearest coordination center who will initiate a search and rescue protocol. These radio beacons are the most innovative on the market and the only ones compatible with the MEOSAR satellite system, which allows them to become the most technically advanced radio beacons, considerably improving the location time.
Hispano Radio Marítima distributes the Smartfind G8 manual already programmed with a unique identification to its customers, including a 3-digit country code giving a better response in the rescue action.
The G8 Handheld Radio beacon contains a GNSS receiver (which also includes GPS, Glonas and Galileo), which improves position accuracy and has a powerful distress transmitter that transmits on frequencies of 406 MHz and 121.5 MHz. High brightness that helps rescue services to locate at night or with poor visibility.
It is powered by lithium batteries capable of continuous operation for 48 hours, a factory expiration of approximately 10 years is offered, this expiration may vary according to the regulations of each country. In Spanish regulations the battery is valid for 4 years.
The McMurdo Smartfind G8 beacon manual is supplied with an exclusive support to prevent accidental activation. Once the radio beacon is manually removed from the support, the EPIRB is activated manually or by contact with water. This rabiobaliza also has the possibility of full self-test, informing you of the remaining battery and checking the correct operation, without needing to be triggered in a real way.
