For over 30 years, Maritime Services LTD has been offering sales and service of the most extensive line of marine electronics in the industry. We have considerable experience in supplying vessels’ electronic needs, and our trained technician can help find the most suitable equipment and service solution for any situation.
We work daily with people who earn their living on the water, as well as the recreational boating community, and we care. Our Principals manufacture the most advanced, reliable marine electronics for all types and classes of vessel.
We are pleased to announce that we are now distributing EPIRBs by GME. These EPIRBs feature a 6 year battery life and are fitted with the Hammar hydrostatic release. These are approved units and all of the approvals can be viewed on the GME website.
We are authorized dealers of EPIRBs manufactured by ACR.
All EPIRBs rely on satellite relay of distress messages, but there are distinct types. Standard 406 MHz EPIRBs send a coded signal with a Unique Identifier Number (UIN). GPS-enabled 406 MHz EPIRBs also transmit position information along with the identifier. There’s considerable time saving by not having to wait for successive passes of the satellite to determine a position fix on the beacon. All 406 MHz EPIRBs are either Category I, meaning they will deploy automatically if the vessel sinks or Category II, meaning they need to be manually deployed.
All 406 MHz EPIRBs must be registered and updated should any of your contact information change.
Please contact us if you have any questions or need help selecting the right EPIRB for your application.
The Search and Rescue Transponder has been designed for assisting air/sea ship or survival craft rescue operations in accordance with IMO, GMDSS requirements.
When a radar signal is received from a ship or aircraft, the S4 Rescue automatically transmits a response signal, which clearly identifies the survival craft on the radar screen by means of a stream of 12 in-line dots.
Once activated the S4 will remain in standby mode for over 96 hours.
