What it does

OLAS Guardian means power boat and RIB drivers are assured that their boat will stop in an instant, should the skipper or crew get separated from the boat, reducing the chances of a serious accident from a loose, unmanned, uncontrolled powerboat. They are free to move around their boat without constantly having to remember to attach, detach and re-attach a physical wired kill cord.

Customisable Tag Modes for Flexibility

The OLAS Guardian offers three user-selectable tag modes, allowing you to tailor the device to your specific needs. You can switch between modes effortlessly using the OLAS mobile app. Here's a breakdown of the tag modes:

  • Default Mode: Ideal for larger motor vessels and sailing vessels, this mode triggers alerts for the remaining crew while cutting off the engine simultaneously. It ensures that everyone is notified and that the vessel is under control.
  • Crew Tag Mode: Recommended for crew and passengers on both motor and sail vessels, this mode alerts the remaining crew without cutting off the engine. It allows for immediate rescue operations.
  • Helm Tag Mode: Specifically designed for sub 35ft motor vessels, this mode acts as a kill cord, stopping the vessel when the tag goes beyond a customizable distance from the hub. This mode allows the user to leave and return to the vessel without setting off the alarm. It doesn't trigger MOB alerts and should not be used as a MOB alarm system.

  • How it works

    • Up to 25 OLAS transmitting devices (OLAS tag/OLAS Float-On) within range can be tracked around the vessel by the Guardian. This allows freedom for the crew and skipper to move around the vessel with confidence that if anyone falls overboard either the engine will be cut-off and / or an alarm will occur, and a swift recovery can be actioned.
    • The Guardian connects to a vessels 12/24v power supply and existing kill switch using the supplied connectors making it quick and easy to install with immediate usability.
    • A 21mm hole is required near to the existing kill switch for the 20mm stainless steel, LED control switch to be installed.

    Professional installation is not required but is advised as Ultimate Sports Engineering does not accept any liability for incorrect installation.

    Who is it for

    OLAS Guardian is for drivers of power and motor boats, and all skippers and boat owners concerned about onboard safety. It wirelessly connects up to 15 crew members via wearable OLAS transmitters (wrist Tags or OLAS Float On Light) creating a virtual kill cord.

    Core Advantages

    • Run alongside existing Kill switch - The Guardian can be used in-place of or alongside an existing kill cord switch and will operate if the physical kill cord has not been attached to the driver. - On most engines a simple parallel connection to the existing kill switch will enable full wireless cut-off capability.
    • Automatic restart - After 5 seconds the kill switch is deactivated enabling the engine to be restarted
    • Inbuilt Alarm - An 85db alarm will sound to indicate an OLAS transmitter has gone out of range.
    • Inbuilt Emergency Light (if externally mounted) - A high-power emergency Red light will illuminate, offering clear visual indication of an alert whilst also acting as a light to illuminate the surrounding area.
    • Relay selection - The OLAS App allows individual relay selection for easily adjusting if the OLAS transmitter triggers the engine cut-off/relay, or only triggers the Guardian's inbuilt MOB alarm.
    • Automatic connection - When you board your vessel and switch on the power, The Guardian will automatically connect to any switched on OLAS transmitting devices within 2 meters rage.
    • No connection alert and override - If you board the vessel and no transmitters are switched on, the Guardian will sound an alert. This alert can be stopped either by connecting the OLAS transmitter to the Guardian or the Guardian can be manually switched off. After which the vessel can be driven as usual using the exiting physical, safety kill cord.
    • Pause mode - The system can be placed into a pause mode. This is used when you need to leave the boat with the engine idling, such as walking down a pontoon, knowing the OLAS transmitter will go out of range.
    • Connects up to 25 OLAS Transmitters (OLAS Tags or OLAS Float-On) - Up to 25 transmitters allows larger vessel to connect crew and objects to the Guardian. Simply by attaching a transmitter to object such as a MOB flotation device or yacht tender you can always be aware if something has gone missing.
    • Extender compatible An OLAS Extender can be used to cover areas where transmitter signal may be blocked. This allows use on larger vessels up to 80ft and the ability to scale the system up if required.

    Setup and Mounting

    12/24V wired

    The Guardian module can be connected to your vessels power supply to ensure it is always connected when you have the power running. The power wires can simply be spliced into an existing power supply from the boat’s battery.

    Through panel mounting

    The compact, stainless steel switch requires minimum adjustment to your existing center console, allowing it to be fitted through a 21mm hole.

    Color coded control switch

    The color-coded control switch makes the system easy to control and setup, without the need for the OLAS App. During the setup process, it will indicate the automatic setup stages with a red indicator light. When the system is running it shows a green light, switching back to red in an alarm situation.

    System Feedback

    The GUARDIAN clearly indicates how many OLAS transmitters are connected during the setup process.

    Transmitters can be added to the system either using the mobile application or through simple inbuilt switching process.

    What is Guardian Smart Lock?

    The Guardian Smart Lock acts as a secondary key system, locking the vessels kill switch system to limit the risk of opportunistic theft and restricting use to Smart key holders or those with the Guardian’s access pin number. Any OLAS tag or Float-On can be allocated as a Smart Key within the OLAS app. If the user arrives at the boat with a ‘Smart Key’ allocated OLAS tag or OLAS Float-On the Guardian will automatically unlock. If you don’t have an allocated Smart Key with you then the OLAS mobile app can be used to unlock the Guardian using the custom access pin code.
