OLAS Float-On Torch With Man Overboard Technology

What it does

Track with the OLAS mobile application

Within 8 seconds of a man overboard incident occurring, the OLAS mobile application technology detects a break in its ‘virtual tether’ to the tag. The mobile phone(s) then sound a loud alarm, alerting crew to the fact someone is overboard. OLAS then aids the crew with the MOB recovery, clearly directing them to the GPS location where the MOB occurred with clear visual signals and bearing data. OLAS stores all location data and time of incident required by the rescue services.

Track with the OLAS Guardian and Core (Vessels up to 50ft)

Connect up to 15 OLAS transmitters (OLAS tag or OLAS Float-On) to any OLAS receiver. Within 2 seconds of the connection breaking the MOB alert will activate alerting crew to the incident.

Overboard Technology

Overboard Technology When thrown overboard, or worn by a person going overboard, it will float. MOB technology senses 6 seconds of water connection and activates the strobe light, flashing once every second for up to 24 hours, visible up to 3 nautical miles away. Recessed water connection terminals ensure the MOB technology is only active when submerged in water.

Fitting in the palm of a hand, a feature button offers easy location in the dark. The lens is effective as a distance torch whilst also emitting side light to ensure complete all-round visibility when acting as a position indicating light or strobe. OLAS Float-On can be easily stowed on any existing safety gear or in a lifejacket pocket.
