ACR Electronics have unveiled their next-generation ResQLink personal locator beacons (PLBs). Incorporating first-hand feedback from survivors who have activated the beacons in real-life emergencies, the new ResQLink 400 and ResQLink View PLBs introduce a user-friendly design and add enhanced functionality to provide adventurers with a trusted and affordable link to rescue in a life-threatening situation. The screen displays all the beacon’s operational activities, including GPS coordinates, operating instructions, usage tips, transmission bursts and battery power.
Compact, lightweight and easy to carry, the beacons feature a protected activation button located away from the test button, multiple wearable mounting options and an easier-to-release antenna enclosure.
Mikele D’Arcangelo, Vice-President of Global Marketing and Product Management for ACR Electronics, said: ‘We are pleased to introduce the next generation of the ACR ResQLink PLBs to offer an affordable yet technologically advanced solution that will save more lives and aid the rescue services in locating and helping casualties. As safety and survival specialists, ACR Electronics will continue to innovate and listen to feedback so that our customers can always rely on our devices in an emergency.’
