Mackay Marine is a global distributor of Dukane Underwater VDR Acoustic Beacons – the current line-up includes: DK120, DKM502/90, and Beacon Tester ATS270.
Acoustic beacons are attached to a ship’s VDR (Voyage Data Recorder) and activated in the event a vessel is submerged, after which the beacon will be the primary signal locator for a sunken ship.
Beacons are tested during the annual VDR survey inspection (VDR APT); and serve as a critical component of the VDR system concept; activated both in salt and fresh water. Dukane VDR Beacons are warrantied from date of manufacture for the length of time specified by the respective beacon’s “Useful Life” (Battery Life).
