ACR Electronics, Inc. is the leading development center for emergency beacons that are designed with one purpose: to save lives. Since 1956, ACR’s wide range of survival products have been the choice of NASA, the U.S. Military, the U.S. Coast Guard, and everyday explorers and adventurers across the globe. With everything from emergency locator transmitters and rescue beacons, to the special flashlights used on Apollo 13 after their on-board explosion, ACR builds products that are made to perform during expeditions of all sizes. The Wilderness Shop has handpicked a range of PLBs that best suit bushwalkers, adventure racers, rogainers, trail runners, rockclimbers, and mountaineers.
