Full automatic AIS MOB unit “Made in Germany”
We have the pleasure to present Weatherdock’s latest AIS rescue device: The easyONE AIS MOB Emergency Transmitter. The easyONE is the first fully-automatic AIS Emergency Transmitter of its kind worldwide.
Its patented release mechanism will take your boat’s crew to a new level of safety. A group of experts developed this brilliant release mechanism that automatically puts in place an antenna (in storage rolled up in spiral shape) once the easyONE gets into constant contact with water. At the same time it triggers an alarm and sends a MOB emergency message (Man over Board). This emergency message, which, of course, can also be activated manually, will be received by all AIS receivers within reach (up to 7 nautical miles – depending on weather conditions and the height of the receiving antenna). All kinds of displays on receiving vessels, such as chart plotters, will consequently display this alert and make an immediate rescue action a lot more probable. Weighing 120 grams the easyONE AIS emergency transmitter is equipped with two lithium battery cells making possible 36 hours of constant operation at 0°C outside temperature. When properly stored the batteries have a life span of 7 years.
The easyONE comes with an integrated 56-channel GPS receiver that is ready to operate within around 35 seconds (counting from power-on to connection to satellites). Furthermore a bright flashing High-Power-LED light will make sure persons are also found at night and with low visibility.
Due to its low weight and compact dimensions (168 x 48 x 27mm) Weatherdock’s easyONE can be easily attached to all automatic life vests. Furthermore the device is fully waterproof (up to 10m depth) and floating and can thus be used as a MOB life buoy in combination with a lifesaver. For the next maintenance of your life raft you might also want to think about having the easyONE integrated into the raft. No matter which application, the easyONE has to be attached to your equipment (lifejacket, lifesaver or clothing) with the provided hand line. This is the only way to ensure the person-over-board is staying close to the easyONE, which is crucial to lead rescue services to the location. When transmitting the easyONE sends the AIS standard messages No 1 and 14. The first message contains the AIS position report, the device identification number as well as course and speed over ground. Message 14 which is, like message 1, constantly updated and sent in certain intervals contains a safety message, the device identification number as well as the text messages “MOB active” or “MOB test”. The text messages inform about the state of the AIS emergency device and whether it is in test-mode or not. The test-mode can be activated at the push of a button and shows the correct functioning of the AIS device with the MOB test symbol.
The AIS Emergency Transmitter easyONE is instantly ready for operation. You do not need to register the device or subscribe to a service.
