UK ACR announces limited recall of GlobalFix iPRO EPIRB

ACR Electronics, Inc. is notifying dealers, distributors and customers that a small percentage of GlobalFix iPRO EPIRBs may not activate manually and is voluntarily issuing a limited recall notice.

Through its ongoing quality assurance processes, ACR had discovered that some of the witness seal tabs used in the manual activation of the GlobalFix iPRO required the application of excessive force to put the switch into its correct position. The water activation feature works separately and is not affected by the manual switch. According to ACR, the manual switch assembly will require re-working on a very limited range of GlobalFix iPRO units shipped to market. No other ACR EPIRB units are affected.

This condition, according to ACR Electronics, 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. ( iPROs with serial numbers outside of this limited recall range are not affected by this notice). The company has asked anyone owning a GlobalFix iPRO falling within the suspect serial number range contact ACRıs Customer Service Department immediately
