Ocean Signal gains EU certification

Mon, 09 February 2015

UK-based Ocean Signal has gained European certification for its rescueME MOB1, enabling it to be sold throughout Europe.

The marine communication and safety specialist’s AIS MOB device is said to be the world’s smallest. It’s also received approval for the USA and has been recognised in the 2015 SAIL Magazine Pittman Innovation Awards.

“The reaction to the rescueME MOB1 at boat shows has already been extremely positive, so we are delighted to receive the certification approvals,” said Alan Wrigley, managing director.

Ocean Signal’s rescueME MOB1 with integrated Digital Selective Calling (DSC) is a compact life-saving device which has been designed to attach easily to most life jackets, ready for automatic activation in the event of a man overboard situation.

The device communicates the location of the person in the water back to the boat and other vessels in the area. Once the MOB1 is activated, AIS transmissions will provide accurate position information on the vessel’s chart plotter. In addition, the DSC VHF alarm will also be triggered.

“We are confident that the rescueME MOB1 will have a significant impact on safety at sea and that customers will appreciate the benefits of the compact size and other features,” added Mr Wrigley.

The marine communication and safety specialist’s AIS MOB device is said to be the world’s smallest. It’s also received approval for the USA and has been recognised in the 2015 SAIL Magazine Pittman Innovation Awards.

The lightweight and easy-to-use rescueME MOB1 measures just 134mm (height) by 38mm (width) by 27mm (depth) and weight 90g. It can be attached to the oral tube of a lifejacket using the mounting clip supplied.
