The Fast Find 220 Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) gives you the reassurance of a last resort safeguard against any life threatening incidents that may occur any-where in the world. If you find yourself in a remote area without any other form of emergency communication, on land or at sea, your Fast Find 220 can call for help.
When triggered, the Fast Find 220 transmits a unique serialised ID to the Cospas-Sarsat satellite system which can pinpoint your location anywhere on the earth’s surface. This is typically within 5 minutes, but can be up to 45 minutes depending on satellite cover-age. The Fast Find 220 uses an internal GPS receiver to pinpoint your location to within 62m. Once in the area, rescue services are then able to pinpoint your precise location using the inbuilt 121.5Mhz homing transmitter.
Waterproof and fully submersible to 10 metres, the Fast Find 220 features an inbuilt GPS receiver that can pinpoint your location to within a few metres. Dense tree cover or a steep-sided canyon can sometimes make it difficult for the GPS to obtain a posi-tion fix. If this is the case, the satellites will still be able to pinpoint your approximate location and the unit’s secondary homing transmitter enables SAR teams to home in on your exact location once they are in the vicinity. The unit also features a flashing SOS light which can be used to attract attention.
The lithium power cell offers a minimum 24hr continuous operation and a 6 year battery storage life.
