Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is a personal electronic transmitter used to alert rescuers that there has been a life threatening man over board (MOB) situation with a need to be rescued.
Taking the Search out of Search and Rescue !
LifeSaving PLBs (Personal Locator Beacon) integrated with other MOB (Man Overboard) protection equipment such as Life Jackets , Immersion Suits, Dan Buoys.
The PLB range has been designed to meet the new international safety standards and uses a combination of 121.5MHz, VHF DSC and AIS GPS technologies in a single, compact, robust unit giving you and your crew the greatest chance of survival in the event of an MOB situation.
Essential for Oil & Gas, Offshore and Marine Industries.
PLB sends out a signal on either a 406MHz frequency or Local Area System using 121.5MHz, VHF DSC and/or AIS.
PLB being a lifesaving product has added Automatic Water Activation feature.
Which means once PLB is submerged under water in 2-5 seconds the PLB will auto activate. So even if casualty is hurt or unconscious and falls overboard, the PLB on contact with water will auto activate.
Compared to other PLBs which are dependent on inflation of lifejacket or manual activation, incase of failure lifejacket to inflate or damage to it during a fall, our PLB ensures auto activation due to contact with water.
