SKU: ORCA TX-104 (Commercial) Category:


Smaller isn’t always better, but many prefer the compact ORCA TX-104 over the size and form factor of our other ORCA Transmitters. The TX-104, while about two-thirds the size of our other transmitters packs the same great punch in terms of performance.

The TX-104 is capable of being programmed for operation in fresh and salt water, or in salt water only. In either case, after being fully submerged for 3-5 seconds, the strobe light activates and the TX-104 begins transmitting a distress signal to all receivers in range. The user-replaceable CR-123 battery allows for continuous transmission for over 24 hours once the transmitter has been activated.

The TX-104 is capable of being integrated into the work uniform or flotation device preferred by the user. As well, the TX-104 has been uniquely designed to be capable of being worn pendant style over the head.
