The water activation feature works separately and is not affected by the manual switch. According to ACR, the manual switch assembly will require re-working on a very limited range of GlobalFix iPRO units shipped to market. No other ACR EPIRB units are affected.

This condition, according to ACR Electronics, could exist in a maximum of 400 units built within serial number range of 1,000 to 1,699. The 400 units could be either the P/N #2846 Category I (automatic deploy) or P/N #2848 Category II (manual deploy) model. iPROs with serial numbers outside of this limited recall range are not affected by this notice. The company has asked anyone owning a GlobalFix iPRO falling within the suspect serial number range to contact ACR’s Customer Service Department immediately at 954-862-2110 or
