The easyRESCUE-A040-BW-COM is an AIS-SART.
After initialization the easyRESCUE transmits emergency AIS-SART sentence that can be received by all AIS devices (Class A & Class B). The device is also equipped with an integrated, accurate and fast GPS of the latest generation. The “live” position of a person in distress is visible via AIS on a PC or on a chart plotter. Thus, any vessel (commercial shipping, government vehicles, SAR, etc.) with AIS on board, can initiate an immediate rescue operation, which will increase your chances of survival.
Substantial modification to the equivalent easyRESCUE and easyRESCUE-A with its “auto activation” by means of water contact, easyRESCUE-A040-BW-COM device has got a third activation mode – a magnetic switch with a ripcord. At the upper end of the device a magnet switch is attached to rip cord. Now if in an emergency the ripcord applied and released from the device, the automatic activation of easyRESCUE-A040-BW-COM takes place. Once activated, the easyRESCUE-A040-BW-COM sends a constantly repeating AIS distress signal from the current GPS position. In addition to the automatic activation by the magnetic switch an activation by full water contact or a manual activation, by pressing the “ON” button, is still possible.
The easyRESCUE-A040-BW-COM does not require any additional equipment to use. To view the position of a person in distress, one to the PC or plotter connected AIS receiver or transponder AIS is necessary only.
There is no registration for the operation of easyRESCUE-A040-BW-COM required!
