- MOB1 DSC Functionality Explained
The MOB1 is compatible with even the most compact inflatable life-jackets and is intended to be installed within the life-jacket and will activate automatically on inflation, sending the first alert within 15 seconds. MOB1 communicates with the vessel you have been separated from and other vessels in the vicinity (up to 8km Range dependent on conditions).
In an emergency, rescueME MOB1 provides 2 methods of rapidly communicating your position back to your vessel, accurate to a few metres, plus providing visual indication via its built-in strobe light. Once activated, your MOB1 will transmit an alert to all AIS receivers and AIS enabled plotters in the vicinity. The integrated GPS ensures precise location is sent to your vessel and any others that may be assisting. An additional feature of the MOB1, is its ability to activate the DSC alarm on your vessels VHF, alerting your crew to the situation.
Out of the box the MOB1 works with any AIS Receiver without any further registration. If your vessel has a DSC enabled VHF radiotelephone, it is strongly recommended to program your vessels MMSI number into your MOB1. This will allow the MOB1 to send the details of the >Man Over Board incident direct to the radio and sound the alarm.
Compatibility: Most modern AIS plotters and DSC VHF comply with the standards required to receive >MOB transmissions. It is, however, recommended that you check compatibility with the equipment manufacturer, especially if you are using older equipment. Complies with Offshore Racing Category 2 Rule 4.22.3.
