OLAS GUARDIAN System
The ACR OLAS (Overboard Location Alert System) GUARDIAN System is a is a wireless engine kill switch and MOB (Man Overboard) alarm system, that provides users with a robust set of safety features.
OLAS GUARDIAN kill switch feature offers powerboat, motorboat and RIB drivers the security of knowing 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 vessel. One of the beast features, is the ability to freely move around the boat without constantly having to remember to attach, detach and re-attach a wired kill cord.
Given that the OLAS GUARDIAN also wirelessly connects up to 15 crew members via wearable OLAS transmitters (OLAS Tags or OLAS Float-On Lights), it essentially creates a virtual MOB kill cord attached to each transmitter. Within two seconds of an OLAS transmitter losing connection, either by going overboard or via separation by distance, the engine will cut out, and a loud alarm is triggered.
The engine can be restarted after five seconds, and a rescue can be performed. The rescue process is then simplified by the GUARDIAN’s ability to connect with the ACR OLAS mobile app which, in the case of a MOB incident, provides an easy to read directional screen showing the direction where the alarm was triggered.
The GUARDIAN provides coverage for vessels up to 50 feet and is scalable via the use of the OLAS EXTENDER for use on vessels up to 80 feet.
