New MOB device introduced to fishermen
The M100 Maritime Survivor Locating Device will be introduced at Skipper Expo Int. Aberdeen
Ocean Signal’s new professional man overboard device for fishermen will be introduced at Skipper Expo Int. Aberdeen on the Caley Fisheries stand.
The compact M100 Maritime Survivor Locating Device (MSLD) can be easily fitted to life jackets and immersion suits ready for automatic activation and incorporates both Automatic Identification System (AIS) and 121.5MHz homing beacon to enable the crewman to be located.
Once activated, the M100 will transmit an alert to all AIS receivers and AIS enabled plotters in the vicinity, as well as sending a continuous emergency homing signal on 121.5MHz, for a minimum of 12 hours. Waterproof up to a depth of 10m, the devices are operational between temperatures of -20°C and +55°C and can be stored at temperatures between -30°C and +70°C.
The compact MSLD measures 132mm x 53mm x 28mm to ensure it can be comfortably worn whilst in a working environment, and comes with a two-year warranty,
The Ocean Signal MSLD has been developed to withstand the harsh commercial environment and has a resilient, sturdy design to ensure ease of use and simple installation.
The device is suitable for fishermen, fishing fleets, fish farm workers and all other commercial use, such as wind farm users, offshore workers and helicopter transfers.
The new M100 can be seen on the Caley Fisheries stand (stand 49) at Skipper Expo Int. Aberdeen, 27th-28th May, and is available from Ocean Safety, the exclusive UK distributor for Ocean Signal.
