An excellent solution for man overboard situations, the OLAS Core gives the peace of mind needed to know your crew are safe at all times when boating. It is compatible with small vessels as well as larger commercial marine vessels, and is the perfect solution if you have a small crew of up to 15.
A man overboard (MOB) is one of the worst fears of those who frequent the lakes, seas and oceans of the world, not only for the crew, but for the person in distress themselves wondering if anybody even knows they have gone overboard. Then there is the stress and worry of a recovery effort if you don’t know exactly when or where the incident happened. The OLAS Core puts an end to this unneeded worry with this state-of-the-art alert system designed to be placed in a highly visible location on the vessel.
What is the OLAS CORE?
The ACR OLAS Core is an instant alert system that is powered by USB so there’s no need to hard wire. It functions as a base station that should be placed in an area of prominence on the vessel where it’s most likely to be seen and heard. Once a MOB situation arises, the transmitter lets out a very loud 85 decibel alarm siren, in addition to a red flashing light to attract attention. This is especially useful if the incident occurs at night.
How does the OLAS CORE function work?
Compatible with vessels up to a length of around 50ft, the OLAS Core enables up to 15 crew members to be attached to the monitoring hub via their ACR OLAS Tag which creates a virtual tether. Should one of the device wearers fall overboard and the boat keeps moving away, the tether is broken and the alarm system kicks in, warning everybody on the boat of the incident.
This fast reaction gives the captain the chance to stop the engines and turn the boat within seconds, greatly enhancing the survival chance of the man overboard, especially in very cold waters or rough seas.
The device also can be paired with a smartphone so that when the situation arises, the smartphone will have all of the information such as location and time, as well as providing information on bearing to assist with the rescue attempt.
