The company said the reinforced ACR product line of survival gear now includes a full range of AIS transceivers, EPIRBs, Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs), Search and Rescue Transponders (SARTs), AIS Man Overboard Beacons, VHF radios, searchlights, rescue strobe lights, pyrotechnics and other safety accessories.

“We are very pleased to launch the new AIS transceivers and to be able to offer these vital safety products to our customers, in addition to our established distress beacons and survival products, which now include the popular, compact Ocean Signal range,” ACR Electronics president Gerry Angeli said in a statement.

“ACR is already known for developing reliable products suitable for the harshest conditions, so we are confident that the Class A and Class B AIS transceivers will enhance this reputation. The ACR AIS transceivers offer high reliability, performance and compliance with regulations at a competitive price.”
