Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon
The SAILOR SE-II and SGE-II Satellite EPIRBs are satellite distress beacons designed to operate in conjunction with the Cospas-Sarsat international satellite search and rescue system and are part of GMDSS.
The SE-II and the SGE-II is identical except for the GPS built into the SGE-II, which improves the accuracy of the position transmitted to shore when activated. The EPIRBs are supplied with either a manual release bracket or with an automatic hydrostatic release bracket, which will automatically release the EPIRB in situation where the vessel is sinking.
This system locates beacons transmitting on the 406MHz frequency to within 5km (3nm). Once Search And Rescue (SAR) units are at the distress scene the beacon’s 121.5MHz homing transmitter and it’s high intensity xenon strobe light aid final location even in poor visibility.
The SAILOR EPIRBs is supplied with a fully enclosed automatic float free housing which allows it to be self-tested while in the housing.
For non GMDSS use the unit can be supplied in a quick release bulkhead mounting bracket.
