Communications and safety at sea specialist, Ocean Signal, will launch three new products at the SMM exhibition in Hamburg. Following extensive research and development by the company's world leading designers and engineers, Ocean Signal has created a series of GMDSS products which each display innovative and industry leading benefits. The products include the SafeSea E100/E100G series of Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRBs), the SafeSea S100 Search and Rescue Transponder (SART) and the SafeSea V100 survival craft VHF hand portable radiotelephone.

The SafeSea® E100 and E100G EPIRBs have the longest quoted operational battery lives in the industry with enough capacity to operate the EPIRB continuously, typically for four whole days, even using the E100G with GPS fix and in worse case temperatures to -20°C. In addition, batteries can be replaced by the user, eliminating the need to return the unit to the manufacturer or agent when they need changing.

The SafeSea® S100 SART is a dedicated radar transponder which complies with IMO SOLAS regulations. In common with the SafeSea EPIRB, the S100 SART has a user replaceable battery which is classified as non-hazardous for shipment and gives 96 hours operation in standby, plus a further 16 hours being interrogated. The SafeSea SART is waterproof to a depth of 10 metres and operates between -20° C to +55° C.

The SafeSea® V100 GMDSS hand held radio is a rugged, fully featured hand-portable GMDSS radiotelephone complying with the IMO performance standards for use in survival craft and exceeding GMDSS environmental requirements. The radio is supplied with all 21 international simplex channels, as required by the regulations. Once again the emergency Lithium primary battery offers unique features such as the battery protection tab which avoids inadvertent use. Only when the tab is broken off will the battery operate the radio, ensuring the pack is at full capacity when needed. A highly efficient transmitter helps to maximise the battery life giving significant improvement over other products on the market.

The new SafeSea products from Ocean Signal offer exceptional value, meeting or exceeding International technical and safety standards. Careful design and innovation provides commercial shipping, fishing and recreational users the confidence that their Ocean Signal equipment will work to, and beyond, their expectations when it is needed most.
