The Fiobuoy requires only minimal and simple maintenance, which can be carried out by the user. Depending on its use, the Fiobuoys Battery Pack need only be changed every 3-6 months for the acoustic models, and 12 months for the Time/Date. Currently the battery packs use high quality alkaline cells with standard battery pack construction. Fiomarine can supply packs, or provide technical details for local construction by qualified agents.
At the time of battery replacement the Fiobuoy’s o-rings can also be replaced, and your Fiobuoy is ready for deployment again. A Maintenance Kit includes everything you need. O-ring replacement is typically recommended every 12-24 months depending on inspection.
