The Caboose Customs Co. MS-L1-IROS infrared beacon is a low cost option that floats - for distress, signaling, use as helmet strobe, and positive identification of items of interest. This includes personnel, structures, landing zones, routes, and passages. This item is water resistant, and with the included plastic case, can be submerged up to 15 meters!

Note: Strobe may feature green (pictured) or blue caps.
This strobe is our strongest yet! The case is made from soda blanks, which are super thick and strong. You could run over it with a car! And it's easy to turn on and off with the external switch!

You cannot see the light from this beacon with your naked eye. You can view the beacon marker with any night vision device, such as the AN/PVS-7, AN/PVS-14 or similar NVGs.

The beacon will immediately start flashing when you attach a standard CR2032 button cell battery (included). You can stop the flashing by removing the battery. Please see last image for battery insertion instructions.
