New Underwater Beacon for Ship's VDR
RJE International has a new line of underwater locator beacons for Voyage Data Recorders (VDR’s) on large ships. The ELP-362M series of beacons is mounted on a ship’s black box to facilitate location and recovery of data analysis, in the event of an accident.
As of July 1, 2014 the IMO (International Maritime Organization ) requires that all new voyage data recorders be fitted with 90 day battery life beacons, such as RJE’s ELP-362M90 Underwater Locator Beacon.
Existing voyage data recorders can continue to utilize 30 day beacons such as the ELP-362M Underwater Locator Beacon.
Both beacon models are BSH Certified and feature military grade corrosion resistance material backed by a 5 year warranty. RJE International’s 25 year reputation of leadership in innovation and quality for underwater navigation and sonar instruments stands behind this product line.
