Product Description

The NOVATECH™ MMB-1000 is a small form-factor, lightweight, self-contained VHF radio locator beacon. Introduced as part of the new Mini-Beacon line, the MMB-1000 has been added to the NOVATECH™ family of asset recovery devices. The new digital circuit controller offers selectable preset frequency channels, along with a range of duty cycle options, resulting in a beacon that can be configured for a range of broadcast specifications.

Powered by Lithium Batteries this miniature recovery aid is designed for one-month ocean deployments, with enough power to transmit for up to four weeks at a low intensity at night once surfaced (results can vary based off configuration selected by the user). The MMB-1000 Mini-Beacon is manually activated and deactivated via an On/Off Control: Magnetic reed switch.
