ACR HydroFix Hydrostatic Release Unit for Catagory I EPIRB #9490
ACR Electronics 9490 EPIRBSHydrofix
Hydrostatic Release Kit
Product No.: 9490
Model No.: HRU-100
ACR Electronics, the world leader in safety and survival technology since 1956, proudly introduces the HydroFix Hydrostatic Release Unit (HRU) to compliment our flagship Category 1 Emergency Positioning Radio Beacons (EPIRB).
ACR has designed a patent pending release rod system, which does not depend on a battery, sharp blade, or a pyrotechnic device to release the beacon. This advantage allows ACR to offer an HRU that is individually tested to ensure that the HydroFix is the most reliable HRU in an emergency situation.
All HydroFix units are tested to the same high standards and quality workmanship you have come to expect from ACR over the past 50 years.
When submerged in water between 5-13 ft. (1.5 - 4 m), the HydroFix will disengage the rod allowing the Category 1 bracket to release the EBIRB.
ACRs HydroFix is now part of the standard replacement kit for the following EPIRBs* and brackets:
|Model No.||Part No.|
|Satellite 406 (Closed and Open Face Brackets)||RLB-27||2754 / 2756 / 2772|
|Sea Shelter2||9435 / 9455|
*Not for use with RLB-23 406 EPRIB (fully enclosed bracket)
