The Ocean Safety PLB3 is the world's first hybrid Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) with 406MHz technology and AIS location capabilities. The PLB3 fits into Spinlock products including the Deckvest 6D, DURO SOLAS and DURO SOLAS+.
This innovative device is designed to provide sailors, fishermen, and boaters with an unparalleled level of security when venturing into the vast expanse of the ocean. It combines two essential technologies, 406MHz and AIS, to offer a comprehensive safety solution.
When activated, this PLB transmits a distress signal to the global search and rescue satellite system (COSPAS-SARSAT), ensuring that your call for help is heard, no matter where you are on the planet. It provides your precise GPS coordinates, expediting the rescue process.
What sets the Ocean Safety PLB3 apart is its integration of AIS (Automatic Identification System) location technology which allows nearby vessels equipped with AIS receivers to receive your distress signal, instantly pinpointing your location on their navigation systems. This not only aids in faster response times but also enhances coordination with nearby vessels, potentially turning them into your lifeline.
