Kannad's SafeLink AIS SART obtains Wheel Mark (Mark of Conformity) the European regulatory marking for marine equipment.

The SafeLink AIS SART is a manual deployment survivor location device intended for use on life rafts or survival craft. Offering an alternative to a Radar SART, once activated the SafeLink transmits the beacon’s geographic position and unique serial number continuously, indicating range and course on all standard ships’ AIS receiver equipment. To further assist search and rescue authorities, the SafeLink also uniquely includes an in-built high precision GPS to pinpoint the beacon’s exact location.

Intended for easy activation for any survival situation, the SafeLink is rugged, compact and easy to operate and deploy as well as being lightweight, buoyant and waterproof to 10 metres. A non-hazardous battery ensures the device is easy and safe to transport and the 96 hour operational battery life and built-in test facility give peace of mind. Whether wall mounted in the ship’s bridge or packed inside a survival craft the highly visible and buoyant carry case affords maximum protection. For use onboard a liferaft, a specially integrated extending pole allows the beacon to be elevated, maximising signal transmission.

Commenting on the approval, Global Sales Director of Orolia Ltd, Ross Wilkinson said, “First launched in February 2010, the SafeLink AIS SART offers a major advance in distress beacon technology to recreational boaters and commercial marine users alike. Internationally approved and compliant with IMO SOLAS requirements this MED approval and Wheel Mark further cements its position as a first choice product for all safety conscious sailors with the technology enabling survivors in life rafts or survival craft to be seen by all vessels with AIS receivers fitted.”
