The ARTEX PLB features a market-leading small size and weight—easily fitting into a pocket or life vest without impeding activity and taking up minimal space—ensuring it is readily accessible in an emergency. Effortlessly operated with one hand even under the most challenging conditions, the ARTEX PLB is activated by extending the antenna and flipping up the spring-loaded protective cover, designed to prevent unintentional activation, and then pressing the ON button.
The ARTEX PLB works with the only officially recognized worldwide dedicated search and rescue satellite network (operated by Cospas Sarsat). Once activated, the PLB communicates the location of the individual to search and rescue services via the designated 406 MHz Cospas-Sarsat satellite system. The device also incorporates a 121.5 MHz homing beacon, plus a high-intensity (1 candela) strobe light.
The ARTEX PLB (8110) features a unique mounting clip, flotation pouch, and lanyard.
