ACR SARLink 406 Personal Locator Beacon
ACR Electronics has been forced to step up and lower their prices for their latest generation of Personal Locator Beacons. Earlier this year, McMurdo introduced its $300 Fast Find PLB series
to the market, significantly undercutting ACR's long-standing PLB price point ($500-$600).
The new SARLink is lighter weight than its predecessor, the ACR MicroFix, (8.9 versus 10 ounces) and adds a few minor improvements: a flashing strobe to help rescuers more quickly home in, the ability to test GPS acquisition up to 12 times (versus once for the Microfix), and a new clear housing that let's you see all the electonic guts inside. The current version sells for $400, $200 less than the MicroFix.
