Video of EPIRB Testing by Iron Unidec and EPIRB Tester Mini
Today we will perform the comparative tests of EPIRB, which is intended to detect and locate the boards, aircrafts and people in distress.
EPIRBs shall be tested at intervals not exceeding 12 months for all aspects of operational efficiency with particular emphasis on frequency stability, signal strength and coding. Today we will check all these parameters.
We need to perform electrical tests to confirm the EPIRB is operational as defined in appropriate performance standards. And for these purposes we require the suitable test equipment – EPIRB Tester. Complete volume of the tests is described in IMO Circular 1040.
