The XMB-11K is an independently powered, self-contained VHF beacon that is fully submersible up to 11,000m (36,089 ft). This beacon is designed to protect your valuable assets and make their recovery even easier. The XMB-11K features a miniaturized design in an all-titanium enclosure designed to meet or exceed your operational requirements for an ultra-deep-water submersible beacon.
The XMB is available with a remote head option (XMB-RH), providing tremendous flexibility during installation. A flexible cable measuring 6’ joins the remote head to the main enclosure. The remote head retains all the critical specifications of the original device with the exception of
depth rating (7500m).
After being activated, the XMB-11K is submerged (to a maximum depth of 11,000 meters), where it enters an Underwater Mode. Here, it monitors water conductivity between the top disk and the bulkhead for up to 2 years. Once it reaches the surface, XMB-11K will transmit a pre-programmed frequency. The XMB-11K can be located using a direction-finding device. XMB-11K will continue to transmit the frequency until it is manually turned off, the battery pack drops below the minimum voltage requirement of 7V, or the XMB-11K is re-submerged.
