Posidonia 2016, Athens, Greece, 6th to 10th June, Stand 3.203 Hall 3
Ocean Signal introduces the M100 and M100X Maritime Survivor Locating Device (MSLD) with Automatic Identification System (AIS) and 121.5MHz homing beacon at this year’s Posidonia.
The latest device by the communication and safety at sea specialist is developed for the professional marine market and suitable for all offshore and lone workers. Designed to unobtrusively attach to immersion suits and inflatable life jackets, the rugged man overboard devices are ready for automatic activation on inflation of the jacket or on submersion when fitted to the suit.
Once activated, the M100 and M100X will transmit an alert to all AIS receivers and AIS enabled plotters in the vicinity, as well as sending a 121.5MHz homing signal, 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.
Available in two versions, the M100X is designed to meet the European ATEX directive and the IECEx approval for use in Zone 2 explosive atmospheres and is ideal for use in environments such as oil rigs, offshore platforms or other hazardous areas. The M100 device is suitable for all other commercial use, such as wind farm users, off shore workers, fishing fleets and fish farm workers, and helicopter transfers.
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.
With a 2-year warranty, the compact MSLD measures 132mm x 53mm x 28mm to ensure it can be comfortably worn whilst in a working environment.
