along with an automatic triggering function, which initiates transmission
of an AIS MOB emergency message.
The unit has got a brand new release mechanism, which will increase the crew’s safety level aboard. By means of the palm size, the easyONE can be integrated into every automatic lifevest.
In case of a “man over board” situation the lifevest inflates and exposes the easyONE. If fully submerged, the unit is activated and the antenna will be unfolded. This AIS MOB is fixed at the victim’s lifevest via cord and floats in front of the victim. A strong LED flash light ensures better visibility at night.
Being activated, the easyONE starts transmitting a full AIS MOB emergency message. This contains the individual unit ID, current GPS position, als well as COG and SOG of the victim. Because the unit ID starts with “972…”, each AIS receiver within range of 7 to 8 nautical miles (bad conditions and height of receiving antenna may lower range) identifies this emergency message. The connected chart plotter or PC screen will display the official MOB symbol (red X with red circle).
Two LEDs show functionality of the unit easily. This will ease the usage in situation of distress.
If the easyONE is triggered once, the battery capacity will last for more than 36 hours of continously transmitting. Because of this and his palm size the AIS MOB easyONE is the perfect companion.
The easyONE is ready to use and there is no registration or license needed.
