GME Product Launch – Additional Safety on the Water

Additional Safety on the Water

With a proud history of marine safety and communication, GME is proud to announce two new AIS safety beacons, the MO520 Automatic Identification System Man Overboard Beacon (AIS MOB) and the SR500 AIS Search and Rescue Transmitter (SART).

The MO520 AIS MOB is a self-contained emergency beacon designed to be attached to life jackets or wet weather gear, which provides rapid distress alerting in a man overboard situation.

The MO520 is compact and lightweight, offering a 5-year battery life with an integrated GPS receiver and IP68 Ingress Protection.

The MO520 can be automatically or manually activated. Once activated, the MOB transmits an AIS message which contains the position of the device. When received, the AIS transmission is translated and displayed on a chart plotter, allowing potential rescuers to quickly and easily locate the beacon. This distress message is transmitted every 1 minute for a minimum period of 48 hours.

The MO520 also features a high intensity LED light which flashes Morse Code “SOS” every 60 seconds.

The SR500 SART is a self-contained, waterproof rescue beacon that transmits an Automatic Identification System (AIS) distress signal upon activation in an emergency. The transmitted signal contains the position of the device, which can be detected by any AIS-equipped vessel in range.
The SR500 SART transmits a 1 Watt AIS message over VHF Channels 1 & 2 and features an integrated GPS receiver to provide accurate location information, which is included in the AIS transmission.

When received, the AIS transmission is translated and displayed on a chart plotter, allowing potential rescuers to quickly and easily locate the beacon. This distress message is transmitted every 1 minute for a minimum period of 96 hours.

The SR500 SART also features a high intensity LED light which flashes Morse Code “SOS” every 30 seconds.
