ACR ResQlink 400 Key Features:
The ACR ResQlink 400 PLB has three levels of signal transmission through GPS positioning, a powerful 406MHz signal and 121.5MHz homing beacon capability.
The ResQlink 400 has a built-in strobe light and infrared strobe system to facilitate rescues at night or during low visibility.
To activate, simply deploy the antenna, press the on button and the beacon will do the rest! Rescuers can be guided within 100 meters or less of your location.
The new ACR ResQlink 400 is designed with multi-function clips to be used in conjunction with the distress beacon; providing numerous wearability options for a variety of usage applications.
This ACR PLB operates with class 2 (non-hazmat) lithium batteries, which must be replaced every 5 years. Once the PLB has been activated the battery will typically exceeds 24 hours transmitting a GPS signal.
Once you have activated your PLB, simply submit your story to ACR and send your used beacon back to them so they can have it mounted on their Wall of Fame and they'll send you a brand new beacon of equal or greater value. Find out more
It is necessary to self-test your ACR PLB to ensure that the beacon functions correctly. The ResQlink 400 offers two built-in test functions to allow you to routinely verify that the ACR PLB is functioning and ready for use - with the push of a button, you can easily test internal electronics and GPS tracker functionality.
Unlike most satellite enabled notification devices, the ACR ResQLink 400 PLB requires no monthly or annual subscription, making it one of the most cost effective GPS enabled emergency beacons available for long term use. In the unfortunate event of needing to use your personal locator beacon, ACR will replace it, free of charge.
Re-programming your ResQlink 400 PLB
All Personal Locator Beacons sold by GTC are pre-programmed with the UK country code. Whilst they will function anywhere around the world, the first authority to be contacted in an emergency situation would be the UK Coastguard Agency in Falmouth with whom the PLB would be registered. Please contact us if you wish to have your PLB shipped with configuration for use in a country other than UK.
This ACR PLB should only be used in situations of grave and imminent danger to life. False alerts endanger lives and cause expensive disruption to Search & Rescue services. Deliberate misuse of the device could result in a penalty.
Please note that PLBs will not work underwater and should be used in a canister if you intend to carry at a depth exceeding the maximum depth stated in the technical specification.
Register your ResQlink 400 PLB
Registering your Personal Locator Beacon is required by law in most countries. Registering is very important because should your beacon ever be activated, it is how Search and Rescue Teams will know who you are, and contacts provided may be able to supply information about your specific travel plans. In the absence of this information, it may take longer for a search-and-rescue operation to begin.
Once you have received your programmed Personal Locator Beacon, the owner is required to register their PLB with the Cospas Sarsat website to add their device to the International Beacon Registration Database (IBRD). To register your device, you must provide your unique Beacon HEX ID number, which can be found on your PLB and box. Use the links below to register your device:

UK customers can register at the link above, or register directly with the Maritime & Coastguard Agency: https://forms.dft.gov.uk/mca-sar-epirb/
