ResQLink View PLB

Recently, Return Link Service (RLS), was integrated into ACR’s new ResQLink View PLB and has been approved for use by the U.S. and Canada (among other countries). The View RLS model takes beacon reassurance to a whole new level by allowing message scrolls on a built-in screen. This gives the user a higher level of confidence knowing that your distress message has been received and localized at a Cospas-Sarsat ground station and forwarded to the appropriate government rescue agency. The ResQLink View’s digital display also provides live status and GPS coordinates, and requires no subscription for use. A strobe and infrared strobe facilitate nighttime, or other low visibility, rescues. Simply deploy the antenna, press the ‘on’ button, and the beacon will guide rescuers to within 100 meters or less of your position.

Gobius C Tank Sensor

Every boat owner knows the trouble with water, waste, and fuel tanks — it can be hard to get a reliable, accurate level reading. Gobius by Albin is changing that with a simple external tank sensor. The new Gobius C features stepless 0–100% fluid measurement to calculate precise levels and internal volume — no matter the container’s shape or material — and display readings on a Bluetooth-enabled device or BUS network. The monitoring system instantly delivers data accurate to within 3mm and is engineered for use on any metal, fiberglass, or plastic fuel, waste, or potable water tank. The sensor is installed on top of the container with 3M tape so there’s never any contact with fluids or semi-solids that could damage it or affect performance. Built-in wave motion reduction eliminates variances in readings due to contents sloshing around. The Gobius C uses Android, iOS, and PC apps for easy monitoring.
