The OLAS Guardian is a wireless engine kill switch that acts within two seconds of a person falling overboard. It has the dual function of also acting as an instant, Man Overboard Alarm system. The Guardian simply connects with up to 15 OLAS transmitters and can cover a vessel up to 50ft.
What it does
OLAS Guardian means power boat and RIB drivers are assured 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 powerboat. They are free to move around their boat without constantly having to remember to attach, detach and re-attach a physical wired kill cord.
How it works
Up to 15 OLAS transmitting devices (OLAS tag/OLAS Float-On) within range can be tracked around the vessel by the Guardian. This allows freedom for the crew and skipper to move around the vessel with confidence that if anyone falls overboard either the engine will be cut-off and / or an alarm will occur, and a swift recovery can be actioned.
The Guardian connects to a vessels 12/24v power supply and existing kill switch using the supplied connectors making it quick and easy to install with immediate usability.
A 21mm hole is required near to the existing kill switch for the 20mm stainless steel, LED control switch to be installed.
Who is it for
OLAS Guardian is for drivers of power and motor boats, and all skippers and boat owners concerned about onboard safety. It wirelessly connects up to 15 crew members via wearable OLAS transmitters (wrist Tags or OLAS Float On Light) creating a virtual kill cord.
