The 3Si Guardian range

Ocean Safety is introducing the brand new 3Si Guardian range of life saving electronics for the first time at Skipper Expo Aberdeen in May.

The three products in the range include the 3Si Guardian CAT1/CAT2 EPIRB, the 3Si Guardian GPS Buoyant PLB and the 3Si Guardian SART (Search and Rescue Transponder).

The 3Si Guardian CAT1/CAT2 EPIRB has an internal 66 channel GPS that will automatically turn on and acquire the user’s position upon activation. It has a separate homing signal and integrated LED strobe light guiding rescuers to the exact location.

The 3Si Guardian GPS Buoyant PLB is small enough to be carried in a pocket, at just 114mm long and weighing 150g. A built-in strobe light provides visibility during night rescues. Its powerful 66-channel GPS guides rescuers to within 100m or less of the user’s position.

The 3Si Guardian SART is mandatory for all commercial vessels that conform to GMDSS, and any vessel carrying more than one life raft. Special features include a test mode which provides visual/audible feedback confirming operational status. The3Si Guardian SART uses non-hazardous five-year lithium batteries and is waterproof to 10m. It has worldwide certification complying with international regulations.

The Guardian range has recently received COSPAS-SARSAT approvals, meaning they are now fully authorised for use in UK and European waters, as well as worldwide.
