ORION Floating Locator Electronic SOS Beacon Kit

The ORION Floating Locator Electronic SOS Beacon Kit has an electronic beacon that flashes a bright SOS distress signal. In an emergency, the signal flashes in Morse code two times longer than the US Coast Guard continuous run-time requirement. It also flashes at a constant light intensity two and a half times longer. This light source remains a full four inches above the waterline while floating. Furthermore, it also has SOLAS grade reflective tape at the waterline. This provides for extra visibility. During daytime an orange distress flag is used.

A waterproof on-off switch is easy and intuitive to operate. Also, the waterproof microprocessor electronics are fully encapsulated for trouble-free use. Also, the battery compartment is sealed with a double O-ring closure. The beacon operates on two D cell batteries and it even lets you know if the batteries need replacing. Plus, its high impact, durable ABS plastic unibody features a high visibility orange color so you can find it quickly.

Finally, you have several options for deploying the beacon in an emergency. Drop it overboard and it self-rights as well as floats. Hold it in your hand. Its molded-in plastic grips are even easy to hold when wet. Alternatively, you can also hang it from a visible location on your boat with the top and bottom lanyards.
