Description

The ALERT418 Man-Overboard Transmitter™ is a lightweight water-activated Transmitter that easily attaches to a Personal Flotation Device. Upon immersion, the Transmitter instantly alerts the crew of a fall-overboard. The proprietary 418Mhz frequency allows it to be automatically activated so it doesn’t have to rely on additional equipment to be triggered.

The ALERT418 Transmitter has been engineered with the latest technology, making it more efficient and easy to use.

The durable Spray Tight Pouch protects the ALERT418 Transmitter from accidentally activating due to extreme water conditions onboard, while enabling it to activate when immersed in water due to a fall-overboard occurrence.

Easy to Use and Wear
It is slightly smaller and lighter than the ALERT2 Transmitter. The ALERT418 can easily clip to a self-inflating PFD, offering comfortable MOB protection. It is water activated so the man overboard doesn’t need to do anything to trigger the alarm. The Durable Spray Tight Pouch folds over the Transmitter, making it seamless to wear.

The ALERT418 Transmitter is always in an armed state, with an easy “reset” button if you need to turn the Transmitter off after activation. Now there is no need to worry if a crew member forgot to “arm the transmitter” before heading off to their watch.

Quickly Locate
The unit includes 6 LED lights for illumination when water-activated, providing enhanced visibility of the fall overboard.

More Efficient
The low battery indicator lets you know if the readily available CR123A lithium batteries need replacement.

Wired for Engine Kill
For singlehanders and solo fisherman, the ALERT Man-Overboard Alarm System can be wired to shut off the engine in the event of a fall-overboard, enabling the man overboard to get back to the boat.

Plot Overboard Waypoint
The ALERT Man-Overboard Alarm System can easily connect to a compatible plotter to instantly mark the location of the fall overboard. Making it easier to home in the person that fell overboard.

Ease of use, automatic, and an intelligent messaging system, makes the ALERT418 Transmitter an essential safety device for anyone on the water. The ALERT418 Transmitter is compatible with the ALERT2 Receiver.

ALERT418 Transmitters require an ALERT2 Receiver to transmit to.
