The new easyONE is a palm sized AIS MOB device recommended by Yachting Monthly in September 2015 as the ‘BEST BUY’. The easyONE has an automatic triggering function which initiates transmission of an AIS MOB emergency message.
The unit can be easily integrated into every automatic lifejacket.
In a man-overboard (MOB) situation the lifejacket inflates and releases the easyONE which will float free in an upright position. The unit is fixed to the lifejacket via a lanyard and is automatically activated. The antenna unfurls to maximise transmission range and a bright flashing LED light aids detections and recovery at night.
On activation, the easyONE transmits a full AIS MOB emergency message. This contains the individual unit ID, current GPS position, as well as COG and SOG of the victim. 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 the range) will pick up this emergency message. A chart plotter or PC screen will display the official MOB symbol (red X with red circle).
Two LEDs show the unit is functioning – providing reassurance in distress situations.
If the easyONE is triggered the battery capacity allows continuous transmission for 36 hours.
The easyONE is ready to use and there is no programming, registration or license required.
