A167 easyAIRDROP Rechargeable

easyAIRDROP Rechargeable – VHF rescue locator unit A167

The easyAIRDROP Rechargeable contains the VHF locator unit easyPOSALERT to support rescue teams, such as SAR airplanes or SAR helicopters.
Packed in a waterprotected box, the easyAIRDROP with the built in VHF locator is ready to go for any situation. Just open the box, get the easyAIRDROP and throw it out. An automatic triggering function activates the internal VHF locator unit when it is submerged into the water.Being activated once, the unit transmits a current VHF emergency telegram to all VHF receivers within range. Position is updated every minute with COG, SOG and identification number of the unit.

Function

The air deployable housing is made of 2 fl oatable plastic parts and is kept together with 2 straps. A soluble tablet will fi x the straps until the whole unit is submerged into water. The VHF rescue locator unit easyPOSALERT is mounted inside the housing.By dissolving the tablet, the housing is opened, and the unit starts transmission by water activation.
A weight at the bottom will keep the easyAIRDROP in upright position for best possible radiation. With the long antenna radio range will be 9 to 12 nm to a vessel. SAR airplanes or helicopters will receive the signal in a distance of up to 80 nm by 500 feet fl ight level.

What is neseccary to run the easyAIRDROP Rechagreable?

The easyAIRDROP with the internal VHF rescue locator unit is ready: „grab and go“. To receive the transmitted signal, an AIS
capable chartplotter or PC software is required to display the rescue relevant data.

A087 easyWATCHBOX

Documents

easyWATCHBOX – external signal source for different dangerous situations.

With the easyWATCHBOX you are informed about the most important dangerous exposures in pleasure boating within only one box:

  • CPA alert for collusion potentials
  • AIS S.A.R.T. alert for incoming emergency signals
  • Battery low

To be single handed aboard don‘t gives you the time to watch out the chartplotter for danger potentials every minute. In these situations it is very useful to be informed automatically.

Function

The easyWATCHBOX will be integrated into the data stream between the AIS device and the chartplotter or PC/Laptop. Now the incoming AIS data are analyzed for special parameters. If one of these figures is triggered, for example AIS S.A.R.T. emergency signal, the unit starts alerting by visual and acoustic signals.

By means of two buttons it is possible to adjust the time and distance figures for the CPA alert.

The triggered alert could be muted by button. But only this special case. If another dangerous situation comes up, the alert will go on again.

This CPA alert function can be disarmed by pressing two buttons at the same time.

Another alerting function is battery low. By means of being plugged to the boats power supply, the voltage is checked
continously by the easyWATCHBOX.

If a certain voltage level is undershot, the unit starts alerting.

What is nessesary to run the easyWATCHBOX?

To use the easyWATCHBOX an AIS Receiver or Transceiver is the only request.

  • Monitoring of the AIS data stream via NMEA0183 input
  • Alerting device for AIS S.A.R.T. active (message 1 and 14)
  • Alerting device for CPA figures
  • Alerting device for battery low
  • Acoustic (95dB) and visual alert (LED)
  • Power supply 9-32VDC, 6mA
  • Internal signal source with 95dB
  • LED signal for AIS S.A.R.T.
  • CPA Alert (closest point of approach)
  • Battery Low

A056 easyCPA³

Documents

Notified immediately  if necessary!

The CPA³-alarm is an additional accessory to bundle different functions and actions at a central point.

Functionality
The CPA³-alarm combines an acoustic signal generator for a triggered CPA-function and an incoming AIS S.A.R.T. emergency notification with a switch to change to the “silent mode” and an uncovered “PAN PAN”-switch.

This device receives impulses from the easyTRX2 and TRX2-IS, respectively once the set CPA-function has been triggered and turns them into acoustic signals. This also applies to the incoming AIS S.A.R.T emergency notifications. These two acoustic signals differ from one another in order to be able to allocate them more easily.

The “silent mode” switch turns off the transmit function of the connected easyTRX2 or easyTRX2-IS, with the result that no data about the vessel and its position is sent. This notification contains the message that you are having a problem and that you are asking for help. An AIS telegram type 14 is sent.

What is necessary to operate an easyCPA³-alarm?
It is required to have an easyTRX2 or an easyTRX2-IS in operation. Only with these two devices it is possible to set the incoming AIS signals in relation to the settings of the CPA-function and to initiate respective actions.

Dimensions

  • Bottom plate: length 81 mm, width 31 mm
  • Box: height 27 mm
  • acoustic pressure of the signal generator: 105 decibel
  • frequency: 2.9 kHz continuous tone
  • operating temperature range: -20°C – +60°C
  • operating voltage is analogous to the connected easyTRX2 or easy TRX2-IS
  • protective cap for the “PAN PAN” switch prevents an accidental triggering

A052 easyCPA

Information
The CPA-alarm is an external signal generator for the CPA (Closest Point of Approach)-function and for the acoustic notification of an incoming AIS S.A.R.T emergency telegram.

Functionality:
The easyCPA-alarm is designed as additional equipment to the AIS transmit-receivers easyTRX2 and easyTRX2-IS and it improves the safety on board.
With this external acoustic signal generator it is ensured that previously defined potential dangers are recognized through the CPA-function of the receiver and hence are signaled clearly.
AIS emergency telegrams that were sent by activated AIS S.A.R.T are recognised and signalized. Thus a temporarily delayed perception through sleep or turned off terminal devices is prevented.

The device receives impulses by the easyTRX2 and by the easyTRX2-IS, respectively as soon as the set CPA-function was triggered and turns them into acoustic signals. The easyCPA-alarm has two different acoustic signals, to be able to differentiate between CPA-warnings and AIS S.A.R.T.

What is necessary to operate an easyCPA-alarm?
You need an easyTRX2 or an easyTRX2-IS in operation. Only with these two devices is it possible to set the incoming AIS signals in relation to the settings of the CPA-function and to initiate respective actions

  • Dimensions
  • Bottom plate: length 81 mm, width 31 mm

  • acoustic pressure of the signal generator: 105 decibel
  • frequency: 2.9 kHz continuous tone
  • operating temperature range: -20°C – +60°C
  • operating voltage is analog to the connected easyTRX2 or easy TRX2-IS
