easyPOSALERT – AIS Tracking Device
The easyPOSALERT has a built-in GPS receiver. After manual activation the device transmits the GPS position, in a preset time interval, by VHF. This position report is sent on programmed VHF frequency to create a “closed user group”. Each easyPOS-ALERT can be personalised individually. In an emergency there is an alert function which transmits on regular frequencies that will be received by everyone within range.
The easyPOSALERT is buoyant and waterproof to a depth of 10m. The rechargeable batteries have a lifespan of 5 days, depending on the pre-set transmission interval. The transmission range of the easyPOSALERT is from about 10nm (10m height of receiving antenna) up to 40nm (aircraft at 1000 ft).
What is necessary to run the easyPOSALERT?
Each object going to be monitored and located needs an easyPOSALERT. The charging station provides intelligent charging to ensures a long lifespan of the batteries. The object-related data is programmed into the device by the customers administrator or by the manufacturer. Only a VHF receiver, the easyAIS, is needed to receive the customised signals of the easyPSOALERT. It is factory pre-set to the custom frequencies. Normally the “closed user group” as well as all other objects are displayed on the chart plotter or PC screen.
Using an easyTRX2S-IS provides the capability to manage different “closed user groups” on the same customised frequency
