Wherever you are, at sea or on land, rescueME PLB1 provides the reassurance that emergency services can be alerted by the press of a button.|
rescueMe PLB1 can be operated with a single hand in even the most challenging situations. A simple spring loaded flap covers the activation button preventing inadvertent use.
rescueME PLB1 works with the only officially recognized worldwide dedicated search and rescue satellite network (operated by Cospas Sarsat). As this is funded by governments there are NO CHARGES to use this service.When activated the rescueME PLB1 transmits your position and your ID to a Rescue Coordination Center via satellite link. Rescue services are promptly notified of your emergency and regularly advised of your current location.
Operation of rescueME PLB could not be simpler. To activate the PLB: Pull the retractable antenna out by it’s end tab, flip open the spring loaded cover over the activation button, hold the button for 1 second until the lights blink. Visual instructions are clearly printed on the case. When activated, the rescueME PLB1 will transmit accurate position data from its 66 channel GPS for a minimum of 24 hours while the integrated strobe light ensures maximum visibility.
Ocean Signal has ensured that rescueME, like all of its other safety products, exceeds statutory requirements. rescueME PLB provides an incredible 7 year battery life, and is covered by a 7 year warranty**. Even after more than 24 hours of continuous operation, and when the battery power is insufficient to transmit the satellite signal, the PLB1’s homing beacon and strobe light will continue to operate. This high intensity strobe light features a molded lens to enhance the visibility of its efficient LED and it gives a powerful 1 candela light emission.
Self-test of the PLB can be carried out with a simple button press with the start of test and results clearly indicated by a green flashing light. The antenna is easily extended like a normal tape measure and can be retracted using the winding mechanism on the top of the unit. This unique feature greatly facilitates user training and familiarization as it is not a one time deployable antenna similar to existing PLBs.
rescueME comes with a snap-in mounting bracket and universal rubber mounting strap which can be fitted permanently or with each use. It is also supplied with a detachable flotation lanyard to accommodate all scenarios out of the box.
After extensive testing and development, Ocean Signal displays immense confidence in the quality and reliability of the rescueME PLB by providing a 7 year product warranty.
