ACR AISLink MOB self-activates automatically when your lifejacket inflates - with a manual over-ride facilty for reassurance.
AISLink sends an initial signal within 15 seconds to all AIS receivers and plotters within a 5 mile radius alerting them with positioning and MOB emergency messages.
Once SOS is initiated, the device will continue to transmit your location for a minimum of 24 hours.
The AISLink MOB also has the ability to alert your crew to the emergency by activating the DSC alarm on your vessel’s VHF.
DSC stands for Digital Selective Calling
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 the water of 20m.
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 of operational life and 7 Year battery life
- Ultra-bright STROBE LIGHT
- Rugged and Waterproof up to 10 metres
This potential lifesaver also alerts the crew to the emergency by activating the DSC alarm via the VHF.
An integral high-intensity strobe light assists with accurate positioning even in low light conditions.
Powerful lithium metal batteries provide 24+ hours of operational life.
The tough, impact resistant housing can withstand a drop to the water of 20 metres.
The ACR video demonstrates how to install the AISLink MOB and highlights the use of the Oral Mounting Bracket to attach the MOB to the Oral Inflation Tube on an auto inflatable lifejacket with a separate bladder.

The majority of modern AIS plotters and DSC VHF units comply with international standards for receiving MOB transmissions.
ACR advise that you check with your equipment manufacturer to ensure compatibility.
DSC functionality may vary, or be disabled entirely, according to individual national regulations.
