Fell Marine MOB+ (Man OverBoard) wireless cut-off switch devices were introduced to the North American public at this year’s ICAST Show this summer.
The MOB+ possesses features designed to wirelessly stop a boat engine if one falls overboard.
“We are very proud to be representing the Fell Marine hi-tech and life-saving products in Canada,” said Robin Martel, President of Northport Systems, parent company of Fugawi. “Fell Marine’s mission is to create products that contribute to safety without impinging on one’s style and preferences. Wear the FOB of your choice on a lanyard, as a wristband, tucked away in a pocket or hooked on the life vest or belt.”
Fell Marine has designed MOB+ accessories to ensure boaters enjoy wearing the safety FOBs without compromising their style, look and comfort.
The MOB+ employs the proprietary WiMEA Protocol with lightning-fast reaction time, 4D Antenna Diversity, AutoMOB, advanced electronics and UniqueID technology to stop the boat without interfering with existing systems onboard.
The MOB+ base unit can be installed in seconds on any boat or engine configuration with simple, plug-and-play connections. The AutoMOB would then automatically shut off the engine if the boater wearing or carrying the FOB falls over board and allows the engine to be restarted after six seconds. The highest quality materials that withstand salt, cold and the sun have been used to make MOB+ devices durable in the harsh of marine environments.
“Fell Marine has a wealth of experience in the low power RF technology, and we are excited to have applied this expertise to enhance safety on the water with the MOB+ – a wireless cut-off switch and an intelligent man overboard system with wearable accessories for every occasion,” says Christian Frost, CEO of Fell Marine.
Fell Marine’s ready-to-use MOB+ complete with the base unit and a FOB retails for US $179.
