ACR AISLink MOB | Personal Man Overboard Beacon

A052886

Model Number: 2886

Advanced Automatic Identification System (AIS) technology comes to the rescue with this compact and affordable man overboard beacon with integrated Digital Selective Calling (DSC) and GPS. Unlike a personal locator beacon, which signals orbiting search and rescue satellites, AISLink sends an alert message within seconds to all local vessels with an AIS receiver and/or AIS-enabled plotter and the DSC alarm on your vessel’s VHF can also be signaled.

The AISLink MOB may be configured by the user to enter the vessel's DSC MMSI number by downloading the programming software to your Windows computer or by accessing the web based programming software. Click on the "Configure" link below to access either software version and then follow the on-screen instructions in order to configure the AISLink MOB. Additional configuration instructions can be found in the product manual.

AISLink MOB:

Use the Download link below to install the program on your Windows computer, or alternatively, use the Launch link below to run the application as a web page on your computers, tablets or phones.

NOTE: If you are having difficulty in programming your AISLink MOB, please see the trouble shooting guide, which can be accessed from the opening page of the program, by pressing the <F1> key in the downloadable software program or by clicking on “Help Me” in the web based software program. The most common reason for the AISLink MOB failing to program is the screen brightness. Please ensure the screen is set to maximum brightness by using the keys on your laptop keyboard or your display monitor.

The downloadable or web based software version available below is specific to the allowable DSC features in the country where you are accessing this webpage from.

More Information

Seconds count in a man overboard situation. The AISLink MOB automatically activates upon inflation of the lifejacket, sending an initial alert within 15 seconds to all AIS receivers and plotters in the vicinity. Both positioning and MOB emergency messages are transmitted alerting vessels up to 5 miles away of your emergency situation.

Even in moderate seas, it is alarming how quickly a visual sighting of a man overboard can be lost.  The AISLink MOB’s integrated GPS quickly pinpoints a precise location and transmits this as part of the AIS alert message to all local AIS equipped vessels. The AISLink MOB also has the ability to alert your crew to the emergency by activating the DSC alarm on your vessel’s VHF. All AIS receivers and AIS-enabled plotters within a 5-mile radius (dependent on conditions) are alerted, and an integrated high-intensity strobe light assists with accurate positioning even in low light conditions. Powerful lithium metal batteries provide 24+ hours of operational life, and the high-impact housing can withstand a drop to water of 20m.

INSTALLATION: The video below details how to install the AISLink MOB. The video highlights use of the Oral Mounting Bracket to attach the MOB to the Oral Inflation Tube on an auto inflatable lifejacket with a separate bladder (additional installation instructions and installation scenarios are available in the AISLink MOB product manual which is accessed by clicking on the “Manuals/Approvals/Downloads” tab)

Compatibility:

Note that most modern AIS plotters and DSC VHF units comply with the standards for receiving MOB transmissions. However, it is recommended that you check with your equipment manufacturer to ensure compatibility. DSC functionality may vary — or be disabled entirely — according to the regulations of individual countries.

Features and Benefits:

  • Dual alert via AIS and DSC
  • Onboard GPS for exceptional location accuracy
  • Simple life jacket integration
  • Manual or Automatic Activation
  • Alerts AIS equipped vessels up to 5 miles (4.3 NM) away
  • 24+ hours operational life and 7 Year battery life
  • Ultra bright LED strobe light
  • Rugged and Waterproof up to 10 meters

What test modes does the AISLink MOB have?

There are three test modes on the AISLink MOB; Functional, DSC and AIS/GPS

The Functional test should be carried out once a month and will display the length of time the battery has been used for.  It will also apply a load to the battery to test that the battery is not faulty or has been discharged.  It carries out other functional tests on the electronic circuitry.  It does not test the GPS or make test transmissions.

The DSC test should be carried out no more than two times a year.  This test sends a single DSC transmission to the MMSI programmed into the AISLink MOB, which will be displayed on the vessels DSC radio.  It does not send a Distress or Distres Relay call and the call does not contain the position.

The AIS test should be carried out no more than three times a year.  This test activates the GPS receiver and after the position is determined it makes an AIS transmission, which will display on a suitable AIS receiver or chartplotter.  The received AIS message will show the position determined by the AISLink MOB GPS receiver.  There is also a transmission of the AIS text message containing the words “MOB TEST”.  Note that this test must be done with the AISLink MOB in full view of the sky.  Without a valid position, the AISLink MOB will not transmit any AIS messages.

The limitation on the number of tests a year is to ensure that the battery will still have its full operational life at the expiry date of the battery.

Why does my AISLink MOB show red flashes if I try to program the MMSI number?

If the unit fails to program, showing the flashing red LED on completion, please try again.  Turn the AISLink MOB on in programming mode again and retry.  There is no need to exit the programming screen on the program.  If the programming page is showing, simply press F10 again to commence the programming sequence again.

If you are having problems programming your AISLink MOB, please check the following guidance.

1) Make sure that your screen brightness is set to maximum, using the controls on the monitor or device.

2) Ensure that you have commenced programming within 50 seconds of putting the AISLink MOB into programming mode.  Failure to do this will cause the AISLink MOB to have turned off before communication starts.  Note that once programming has commenced (The white box is flashing) the AISLink MOB should stay on until the programming sequence is completed.

3) Ensure that the AISLink MOB is placed over the white square with the rubber programming adaptor firmly touching the screen and with the aperture in the rubber close to the center of the white box.

4) Avoid programming the AISLink MOB in bright ambient light conditions.  If necessary point the screen away from direct or bright sources of light such as sun through a window.  (In extreme circumstances, especially with older screens that have lost their brightness, place a thick cloth over the screen and AISLink MOB to block out the ambient light.)

5) The AISLink MOB configuration software requires precise timing, which may be disrupted by other applications running at the same time, especially on slower computers.  If you still encounter problems, try shutting down all un-necessary applications, including anti-virus software.

Which DSC radios are compatible with the AISLink MOB?

ACR recommends using one of the radios from the list below with the AISLink MOB. The following class D DSC radios have been tested in cooperation with the manufacturer and confirmed to receive the Individual Distress Relay call.
