The Core is a compact, portable overboard alarm and emergency light system. It reacts within 2 seconds of a person falling overboard and can easily be switched between vessels without the time and cost of wired instillation. The Core can connect with up to 15 OLAS transmitters and cover a vessel up to 50ft.
What it does
The Core wirelessly tracks OLAS transmitters around the vessel. When a person wearing a transmitter falls overboard the in-built alarm is triggered and a high-power emergency red light gives visual indication and illuminates the surrounding area, all within 4 seconds.
As well as triggering the Alarm, the Core connects with the free OLAS mobile application providing an easy to read arrow back to the alert position plus essential MOB last known position information and an auto populated VHF prompt screens to support the crew during the stress of a recovery operation.
Why use the OLAS CORE
The Core gives skippers complete confidence that in the event of a MOB incident, the entire crew are alerted instantly and can take immediate recovery actions.
Losing a crew member overboard is every sailors’ worst nightmare. The larger the boat, the more difficult it can be to know immediately that a MOB incident has occurred, especially in the dark with crew members forward of the mast.
It can happen all too easily even in benign conditions. Wearing a physical tether, whilst advisable, is not always practical, and indeed falling overboard on a tether has been proven to be no guarantee of survival if the boat is at full speed and the skipper is not immediately aware of the incident.
