ACR is leading the way in the development of emergency beacons designed specifically for life saving purposes. Through the harnessing of technological expertise, ACR’s SOS beacons are designed and manufactured primarily for the maritime sector, making it easy to summon assistance in an emergency situation.

Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs)

Personal locator beacons (or PLBs) are a key piece of emergency equipment that should be taken on any trip. Simple to use, even in the most challenging situation, they can usually be operated with just one hand, giving the ultimate reassurance the emergency services around the world can be summoned with just one press of the button.

Once activated, your position will be transmitted instantly via satellite to a Rescue Coordination Centre and help will be sent on the way. Designed to work with the officially recognised search and rescue dedicated worldwide satellite network, there are no subscription charges for using a PLB device, making them an incredibly affordable way to stay safe either on the water, in the air, or on land.
