McMurdo Smartfind S20 - AIS Personal Rescue Beacon
The Mcmurdo Smartfind S20 AIS beacon. Designed to be fitted to a lifejacket the S20 Smartfind AIS MOB device is ready to be activated in the event of a man overboard situation.
The compact, lightweight unit sends alert messages, GPS position and a special identity code directly to AIS receivers within a 4 nautical mile radius (depending on sea conditions). No additional equipment is needed - it ties directly into your existing AIS-enabled chart plotter and navigation system.
A unique, built-in, high precision GPS receiver - which updates every 60 seconds - assures accuracy of the data transmitted from the S20 SRS. With precise location, distance and bearing data, fellow crew members (and nearby AIS-enabled receivers) receive all the information they need to locate the position of the person in difficulty and to enable a speedy recovery.
The S20 SRS will transmit continuously for up to 24 hours and has a seven year battery storage life. It is made of ultra durable ABS, waterproof to 15 feet, and includes a flashing LED light to aid with locating the activated unit at night.
The S20 is supplied ready for manual-only activation. Provided with a clip for attachment to the oral tube of the lifejacket
