The Epirb is supplied with a housing that automatically triggers with water pressure and releases the Epirb so that it floats on the surface of the water, even if the boat sinks. The transmitter with housing measures 237 × 191 × 121 and without housing 178 × 89 millimeters. The battery has a lifespan of ten years. The float-free housing should be compatible with old devices, so new holes are not necessary. Price: 859 euros.
