Lambda Marine receives bulk order for popular Ocean Signal EPIRBs
Lambda Marine, a maritime ICT system integrator based in the UAE, recently received a bulk order for the increasingly popular Ocean Signal E100G EPIRB. The E100G meets the needs of all commercial, fishing and leisure vessels. It operates in the 406MHz satellite band, which is constantly monitored by Cospas-Sarsat, the international search and rescue satellite operator, who is ensuring a rapid response when a signal is received, no matter where it is in the world. In addition it is fitted with a 121.5MHz homing beacon used by rescue services for close-in location of vessels in distress. It is also fitted with a high brightness LED strobe light for additional impact, especially at night. Both the E100G, which has a built-in 50 channel GPS receiver providing fast and accurate position acquisition (typically within 30 seconds) and the E100, without GPS, can be fitted within an Automatic Release Housing (ARH100, commonly referred to as ‘float free’) to comply with IMO regulations. They both feature a user-replaceable battery which is non-hazardous for shipping purposes.
