New 3Si Guardian Buoyant PLB from Ocean Safety
Ocean Safety, specialists in the worldwide supply, distribution, service and hire of marine safety equipment, introduces the 3Si Guardian Buoyant PLB. Ocean Safety is the exclusive distributor of the PLB for the UK and Europe on behalf of 3Si.
The 3Si Guardian GPS Buoyant PLB is small enough to be carried in your pocket, at just 114mm long and weighing 150g. Using GPS positioning, a powerful 406 MHz signal, and 121.5 MHz homing capability the 3Si Guardian GPS PLB quickly and accurately relays your position to a worldwide network of search and rescue satellites. A built-in strobe light provides visibility during night rescues. Its powerful 66-channel GPS guides rescuers to within 100 metres or less of your position.
The Buoyant PLB can also be clipped to a lifejacket or foul weather gear, many models of which have built in PLB pockets. Because they work anywhere in the world they can also be used by mountaineers and explorers where national legislation permits.
There are no subscription fees to pay with a 3Si Guardian PLB, and it is fully buoyant in water. A super-bright LED Strobe light helps in rescue location and the battery will typically last for 30 hours when activated. A non-hazardous battery means it can be carried on flights.Two built-in tests allow you to routinely verify that the 3Si Guardian Buoyant PLB is functioning and ready for use - with the push of a button, you can easily test internal electronics and GPS functionality.
