Self-Contained Submersible VHF Beacon
XMB-11k VHF Beacon

The XMB-11K is an independently powered, self-contained VHF beacon that is fully submersible up to 11,000m. 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 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 the XMB-11K is submerged it enters an Underwater Mode. Here, it monitors water conductivity and 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 drops below the minimum voltage requirement, or the XMB-11K is re-submerged.
