ACR recalling some emergency beacons

Posted on

ACR Electronics of Fort Lauderdale is voluntarily recalling some of its GlobalFix iPRO EPIRBs because a “small percentage” of them may not activate manually.

ACR discovered that some of the witness seal tabs used in the manual activation of the GlobalFix iPRO required excessive force to put the switch into its correct position. The water activation feature works separately and is not affected by the manual switch.

The company says the manual switch assembly will require reworking on a “very limited range” of GlobalFix iPRO units shipped to market. The problem could exist in a maximum of 400 units built within serial number range of 1,000 to 1,699. The 400 units could be either the P/N #2846 Category I (automatic deploy) or P/N #2848 Category II (manual deploy) model.

The company says iPROs with serial numbers outside of this limited recall range are not affected by this notice, and no other ACR EPIRB units are affected.

Contact ACR’s Customer Service Department at (954) 862-2110 or e-mail nbuckle@acrelectronics.com.
