The Odeo Flare™

The Odeo Flare™ is the new alternative to the traditional red pyrotechnic hand-held distress flare. It is similar in size to traditional flares, but instead of using dangerous explosives to burn, it uses battery powered light emitting diodes.Traditional flares will burn for around 30 seconds before extinguishing: the Odeo Flare™ ‘burns’ for around 5 hours at full illumination. Because no pyrotechnics are used, the Odeo Flare™ is totally safe when switched off, and because it uses battery power (high power lithium iron-disulphide cells), it can even be safely posted or carried in baggage on flights.Whilst originally designed for marine use, its lightweight, safe performance means that it is incredibly useful for any outdoor activity. Mountaineering, skiing, expeditions… now any activity can benefit from the added safety and security of carrying a distress flare – without the unwanted dangers.
The Odeo Flare™ is designed with consideration to SOLAS requirements, making it a genuine alternative to the pyrotechnic red hand held flare. The US Coast Guard is now leading the world in developing standards for electronic Visual Distress Signals (eVDS) as a replacement for the hand held pyrotechnic flare.
OdeoFlareTM is a product owned by Daniamant who acquired Odeo Flare Ltd in October 2014 as part of its ongoing strategy to be at the forefront of innovation and expand its product range.

MK3 Odeo Flare™:

LED FLARE (eVDS) – IDEAL FOR SAFETY OF YOUR VESSEL
Odeo stands for Omni Directional Electrical Optical signal and is an innovative replacement and enhancement to traditional hand flares.
Traditional flares will illuminate for around 30 seconds before extinguishing: the Odeo Flare™ illuminates for around 6 hours at full illumination. Because no pyrotechnics are used, the Odeo Flare™ is totally safe when switched off, and because it uses battery power (high power Lithium or Alkaline cells), it can even be safely posted or carried in baggage on flights.
Whilst originally designed for marine use, its lightweight, safe performance means that it is incredibly useful for any outdoor activity. Mountaineering, skiing, expeditions etc. – any activity can benefit from the added safety and security of carrying a distress flare – without the unwanted dangers.

MAJOR BENEFITS
– No heat, no flames, no risk
– No explosive compounds for shipping or disposal
– Increasing safety
– Longer operating life
– Search and Rescue aircraft safe

REGULATIONS
The Odeo Flare™ is designed with consideration to SOLAS requirements, making it a genuine alternative to the pyrotechnic red hand held flare. The US Coast Guard is now leading the world in developing standards for electronic Visual Distress Signals (eVDS) as a replacement for the hand held pyrotechnic flare. The Odeo Flare™ also outputs an SOS signal during its flash pattern as described in Annex 4 to COLREGS, and is thus an internationally recognised distress signal.

POWER SUPPLY
The Odeo Flare uses either 3 x L91 Lithium batteries or 3 x AA Alkaline batteries. These batteries have the required shelf life and power capacity and will operate over an extended temperature range.

Odeo Distress Flare™:

LED FLARE (eVDSD) – IDEAL FOR YOUR PERSONAL SAFETY
Daniamant is proud to introduce the ODEO Distress Flare as the next generation of Electronic Visual Distress Signal Device (eVDSD). As the world starts to embrace LED technology in place of traditional pyrotechnic flares Daniamant have built on the ground breaking ODEO Flare design and improved the product once more. New standards and regulations are still being discussed at the USCG and RTCM; these will result in an alternative standard to replace pyrotechnics.
Whilst this work proceeds in the background, Daniamant thought that our Customers should be able to take advantage of technology advances in the interim.
FUNCTION:
Traditional flares will illuminate for around 30 seconds before extinguishing, the Odeo Distress illuminates for around 8 hours at full illumination. Because no pyrotechnics are used, the Odeo product range is totally safe when switched off, and because it uses battery power (high power Lithium or Alkaline cells), it can even be safely posted or carried in baggage on flights.
TYPICAL USE:
Whilst originally designed for marine use, its lightweight, safe performance means that it is incredibly useful for any outdoor activity. The smaller size makes the ODEO Distress ideal for mountaineering, skiing, kayaking, expeditions etc. – any activity that can benefit from the added safety and security of carrying a distress flare – without the unwanted dangers. The ODEO Distress small size and waterproof rating IP68 (50m) also makes it an ideal safety device for divers.
POWER SUPPLY
The Odeo Distress uses either 4 x L91 Lithium batteries or 4 x Alkaline batteries. These batteries have the required shelf life and power capacity and will operate over an extended temperature range.
