The ALERT418® Man-Overboard Receiver immediately alarms the crew and vessel of a man-overboard situation in seconds. When the difference between life and death is three minutes, the best chance of a successful rescue is by the crew onboard.
The ALERT418 Receiver is installed aboard the vessel or on land for shoreside awareness. When the ALERT418 Receiver picks up an ALERT2 or ALERT418 Transmitter signal, an internal siren sounds in the Receiver and a the digital display is illuminated with important information such as the location of the vessel at time of incident and ID number of ALERT418 Transmitter that is transmitting (ALERT2 Transmitter does not transmit unit ID). In addition to this valuable information is a Relevant Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) to provide a numeric reading of the strength of the ALERT Transmitter. The ALERT418 Receiver also has the ability to be wired so it can shutdown the engine, mark a position on a compatible Chart Plotter, sound external alarm systems, and other options.
Upon immersion in water, the ALERT Transmitter instantly sends a radio signal to the onboard ALERT418 Receiver to alarm the crew and vessel of a fall-overboard.
Alerts in Seconds
When every second counts, the ALERT Man-Overboard Alarm System instantaneously alarms the vessel, providing the crew the critical extra seconds needed for a successful man overboard rescue. Unlike AIS, the response of the ALERT418 Receiver is immediate. There is no lag time connecting with satellites.
Wired for Engine Kill
For single handers and solo fisherman, the ALERT Man-Overboard Alarm System can be wired to shut off the engine in the event of a fall-overboard, enabling the man overboard to get back to the boat.
Plot Overboard Waypoint
The ALERT418 Man-Overboard Receiver can easily connect to a compatible plotter to instantly mark the location of the fall overboard. Sending a NMEA 0183 compliant sentence, compatible chart plotting software will display the location of the incident.
The ALERT418 Receiver can be directly wired to the boat’s 12-volt wiring system or connected via optional 110-volt power supply.
