ResQLink AIS Personal Locator Beacon
The all new ACR ResQLink AIS Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is the most technologically advanced beacon in the world as it contains both satellite and local transponders. With the introduction of Automatic Identification System (AIS) functionality, Return Link Service (RLS) technology, and Near Field Communication (NFC) capability in one 406 MHz beacon, the ResQLink AIS represents a critical advancement in the evolution of PLB technology.
Designed solely for marine use, the combination of 406 MHz and AIS distress messaging pairs both global and local rescue into one beacon for the first time, extending access to the Coast Guard and Search and Rescue as well as commercial and recreational boats in the area. Alerting local AIS equipped boats in your vicinity allows for additional vessels to respond directly to the digital mayday with your precise location.
In addition, NFC capability provides users with the world’s first smartphone connected Personal Locator Beacon, the new Return Link Service feature provides users with the peace of mind knowing that their distress message has been received and their location detected by Coast Guard.
The new Ocean Signal EPIRB3 is a full featured 406 MHz global rescue beacon that comes with a manual release bracket and packs a host of features into a compact modern design which includes AIS technology. AIS provides local rescuers precise and reliable information on the current beacon position, thereby speeding rescue operations. Additionally, Return Link Service (RLS) comforts those who activate the beacon by confirming that their distress message has been received. The inclusion of Near Field Communication (NFC) capability allows use of a smartphone app to monitor the EPIRB’s battery and other functions ensuring it is working properly. With its slim design and advanced features, the EPIRB3 is ideal for a variety of mariners whether they are cruising the med, heading out through the straights for a passage, fishing, working, or sailing offshore.

The world’s smallest personal locating AIS Man Overboard Beacon (MOB) with integrated DSC. The Ocean Signal MOB1 AIS Beacon communicates with the vessel you have been separated from and other marine traffic in the vicinity (up to 5 miles range dependent on conditions). The best chance of rapid rescue if you fall overboard comes from your own vessel. Your crew needs to be immediately aware of the incident and keep track of your position whilst recovery is carried out. Even in the most moderate of seas, it is alarming how quickly a visual sighting of a man overboard can be lost.
WARNING: PROP 65
The AISLink CA2 Automatic Identification System (AIS) Transponder is a fully compliant Class A transceiver designed to complement the existing range of automatic identification systems ais maritime safety equipment from ACR Electronics. This compact, single-unit solution is capable of exchanging dynamic and static ship data with marine traffic-utilizing other AIS equipment. Real-time marine traffic information is continuously interpreted using a powerful internal processing engine and displayed on a 7” full-color, rapid-response LCD. The coastline map view and radar view have various orientation display options allowing for user preference whilst a standard target list display gives immediate detailed listings of nearby vessels which can be sorted to the owner’s desire.
Warning: Prop 65
The AISLink CB2 AIS Transponder is a fully compliant, waterproof Class B+ transceiver designed to help with marine traffic collision avoidance. Using advanced SOTDMA (Self Organized Time Division Multiple Access) technologies from Class A transponders, the AISLink CB2 features inherent advantages, including a faster reporting rate and higher output power concerning all Class B AIS products that use the older CSTDMA (Carrier Sense Time Division Multiple Access) technologies on the market.
How do I configure my CB2 AIS?
The CB2 AIS needs to be configured by the user to enter the vessel’s MMSI number and other vessel details.
This can be carried out by a mobile app or a web-based program:
- For the Mobile Android version search the Playstore for ACR AIS Config
- For the Mobile iOS, version search the App Store for ACR AIS Config

AIS Alarm Box
Your Audible Alert to Rescue
The AIS alarm box is designed to ensure that the moment any AIS MOB or AIS SART signal is received an audible alarm is sounded ensuring everyone on the vessel is alerted to a possible MOB or a crew in need of rescue. Its simple design, compact nature and use of NMEA 0183 mean that integrating the AIS Alarm Box into your AIS receiver and the existing network is straight forward. Combine the AIS Alarm for Man Overboard Emergencies with the ACR AISLink CA2 (Class A) or CB2 (Class B) transceivers to complete your AIS MOB solution.
WARNING: PROP 65
Overboard situations can be a little less hair-raising with the Automatic Identification System (AIS) Man Overboard Beacon (MOB). The AISLink features integrated Digital Selective Calling (DSC) and GPS technology, so you can quickly reach out for help when you need it most. Unlike a personal locator beacon, which signals orbiting search and rescue satellites, AISLink sends an alert message within seconds to all local vessels with an AIS receiver and/or AIS-enabled plotter. Plus, the DSC alarm on your vessel’s VHF radio can also be signaled to make first responders aware of what’s going on.
