KTI SafetyAlert SA1G EPIRBs incorporate a 66 channel GPS receiver which is accurate to 1.8 metres and provides the highest possible search-and-rescue location accuracy. Once activated, the SA1G will continue to transmit an updated GPS location every five (5) minutes for over three (3) days.
The SafetyAlert SA1G has an in-built high intensity strobe light for visual detection at night or in poor visibility and provides its GPS location ro search-and-rescue authorities within one (1) minute of activation.
The Safety Alert SA1G EPIRB is extremely cost effective and low maintenance due to an engineering world first COSPAS/SARSAT approved 10 Year Battery. The SafetyAlert SA1G is designed to go the distance so you may have complete confidence on land or at sea.
