Product Description

ACR HydroFix™ Hydrostatic Release Kit
Universal EPIRB Hydrostatic Release Kit


ACR Electronics introduces the new HydroFix
™ Hydrostatic Release Unit (HRU) to compliment their 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 the same high standards and quality workmanship expected from ACR over the past 50 years, to ensure that the HydroFix™ is the most reliable HRU in an emergency situation.

The Hydrostatic Release on a Category 1 - Automatic Deployment, is a date stamped product and must be replaced every 2 years from the date of installation or 3 years from the date of manufacture.

Product Features:

  • 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.

  • 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.
