The ALERT418® Man-Overboard Receiver immediately alarms the crew and vessel of a man-overboard situation in seconds. In addition to the fastest man-overboard alert, you can wire for engine-kill and other external alerting functions. When the difference between life and death is three minutes, the best chance of a successful rescue is by the crew onboard.
The ALERT418 Receiver is installed aboard the vessel or on land for shoreside awareness. When the ALERT418 Receiver picks up an ALERT2 or ALERT418 Transmitter signal, an internal siren sounds in the Receiver and a digital display is illuminated with important information such as the location of the vessel at the time of the incident and ID number of the ALERT418 Transmitter that is transmitting (ALERT2 Transmitter does not transmit unit ID). In addition to this valuable information is a Relevant Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) to provide a numeric reading of the strength of the ALERT Transmitter. The ALERT418 Receiver also has the ability to be wired so it can shut down the engine, mark a position on a compatible Chart Plotter, sound external alarm systems, and other options.
Upon immersion in water, the ALERT Transmitter instantly sends a radio signal to the onboard ALERT418 Receiver to alarm the crew and vessel of a fall-overboard.
Alerts in Seconds
When every second counts, the ALERT Man-Overboard Alarm System instantaneously alarms the vessel, providing the crew the critical extra seconds needed for a successful man overboard rescue. Unlike AIS, the response of the ALERT418 Receiver is immediate. There is no lag time connecting with satellites.
Wired for Engine Kill
For singlehanders and solo fishermen, 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 ALERT418 Man-Overboard Receiver can easily connect to a compatible plotter to instantly mark the location of the fall overboard. Sending an NMEA 0183 compliant sentence, compatible chartplotting software will display the location of the incident.
The ALERT418 Receiver can be directly wired to the boat’s 12-volt wiring system or connected via an optional 110-volt power supply.
Displays Valuable Transmitter Unit Information
- Unit ID number – to immediately know who fell overboard
- Signal strength indicator – find the MOB quicker based on the single strength of the MOB’s transmitter
- Low battery indicator – easily know when a transmitter needs new batteries to ensure the crew is always prepared for a man-overboard situation
An ALERT418 Receiver supports an unlimited number of ALERT2 or ALERT418 Transmitters.
ALERT2 Customer Looking to Upgrade?
The ALERT418 Receiver has the same dimensions as the ALERT2 Receiver, therefore, you can easily swap out the two units. Order part number AR401 if you only need the ALERT418 Receiver, GPS antenna, and serial cable. You will then be able to use your existing ALERT antenna and coaxial cable to operate the device. If you purchased your ALERT2 Receiver within the past year you may be eligible for a product rebate towards the ALERT418 Receiver.
